Book #36 - Baby Proof by Emily Griffin

I love her books. She wrote Something Borrowed and Something Blue. I am not sure if other than those two and this new one if she has anything else published, but if she does, I am so scooping it up. I find her incredibly easy to read and it's not like work to get through the chapters. I know that for the most part I read lightweight stuff, but for right now, that is my taste. I have to read and hear and transcribe a lot of really serious stuff all day 5 days a week so during my down time I like to read stuff about women that have fairly light problems. In fact, my current book is called "The Secret Lives of Fortunate Wives." Nothing makes a book a page turner for me than rich women who have not much else to bitch about than that their housekeeper watches too much Price is Right. It is a world of which I am not a part, but damn, it's fun to be a fly on the wall. :)

In other parts of life, I am glad that the bulk of you took my prior post in the manner in which it was intended. A few of you had some extenuating circumstances in which your kids had phones - all of which made perfect sense. Not that you were seeking or need my approval, but I'm just saying what y'all said made sense. I just could not understand the rampant shit I see on a daily basis with these ever younger girls. It makes me sad for them.

My weekend has been nice thus far. Friday night a rather large gang of us went to eat at Hooters. Y'all know I love me some wings and the hubs loves him some boobs, so I mean what is not to love? We had a really sweet server who totally did not take any of the men's crap but answered back in a nice, but firm way. Gotta love that. I imagine those girls that work there have to develop a thick skin. Saturday the hubs and I ran around a tad during the day; dropped off a door to my friend, Karen, went to Petco to get deworming crap for my mom's cat, the mall where I bought an older Depeche Mode CD and a Cure CD - both of which I used to have years ago and lost at some point in our moves. We then went to dinner with my hubs brother in law. He is the one who was married to the hubs sister that passed away a little over a year ago. We always have such a good time with him and last night was no different. We went to a steak house and once again, great food and fab service. I am a sucker for good, attentive, but not butt kissing service and this girl was GOOD. I was all too happy to tip her 25% on our amazingly large bill. I also got a great thunderstorm out of the deal. I was not home to enjoy it properly, but nevertheless, it was a goodie.

Today was lunch with Karen at Houston's. I grossly overate and came home feeling miserable for a while, but now I'm ok. Mom and I took a trip to Sam's Club to stock up on some essentials, like the new James Patterson novel. WHAT? It's a necessity. Back off.

I am off tomorrow since this coming week is my first offical week at the job doing my permanent schedule. The past two weeks have been a traditional schedule of Monday-Friday 8-5. Now I will be doing Tues-Saturday 10-6. So I got a 3 day weekend out of the deal. How 'bout them apples? Tomorrow I have to go drop off some paperwork regarding one of my hubs old bills, renew his library book that is now overdue, and then hit the regular grocery to get the smaller, nonbulk items we might need. My mother has a dr. appt in the afternoon that will take the bulk of the afternoon and I gotta say, I am dreading it. I loathe just sitting there......waiting....forever. This office is notoriously not on schedule so I figure I will be home sometime around 4:30 or 5. Good times.

Does anyone else think that the coming movie "World Trade Center" is done a bit too soon? I also felt the same way about the movie "Flight 93." I guess that might just be me, but I think some of those wounds might be a bit too raw this early on. Thoughts?

I did the Sam's thing yesterday and stocked up on back-2-school lunch munchies :)

Have you ever read any James Lee Burke? He's an easy read also, and his Detective Dave Robicheaux novels are set in S. Louisiana.
If you like detective/mystery type stuff, give him a whirl.

Glad to hear you had a relaxing and pleasant weekend. :)

I loves me some Hooters! :)

Yea, I think the movies about 9/11 are a bit too early.

I agree with you on the 9/11 movies. I have to turn the channel if a preview comes on or I just tear up.

Ooh I love to go to Hooters too. Some of my friends give me crap about it but it doesn't bother me. I definitely think the 9/11 movies are premature and won't be watching any of them.

I love love love her books. I have read something borrowed and something blue.

I really want to read this but am too cheap to buy it becuase I can only find it in hardback and the library does not have it yet. Wah I will just have to wait!

I am reading the "The Secret Lives of Fortunate Wives." right now too and I love Jennifer Weiner books girl we have got to start a book club! A Blogger Book Club!

Sounds like a great weekend!

I was of the opinion that the movies were a bit too soon, but my dad said he thinks it's good that they are out so we don't forget how horrible that day was. That kind of makes sense to me.

oh, the litterbox retails for $129, but I found it at petsolutions.com for $99. :)

Hooters...can you believe that I've never actually eaten there? I've heard the wings and boobs are great though.

Too soon with WTC. The wounds are repercussions are still too raw.
