I did it!

Okay, I bit the bullet and finally ordered a Kindle!!!! I've been putting off the decision for over a year as I researched all the different ereaders and the pros and cons of all the ebook sites. I know that everyone has their own favorites and that there's a lot of people out there who have a problem with Amazon, but it finally came to a point where I had to just make the decision. I'll let you know after I receive it my own personal opinion (which is worth about a penny) but for now I'm just excited. I'll never get over my love of holding a book in my hand or having my house filled with bookshelves, but technology moves on and I want to be a part of it :)

Hope all is well,

Happy Monday

Is that an oxymoron? Ah well, its early enough that doesn't really feel like a Monday yet :)

The weekend passed in a, not a fun blur :( Just busy, busy. I did get a new toy, however, that's been a lot of fun. I found a Flip camcorder that was super cheap and just had to get it. Now I'm taping everyone and know, generally driving everyone crazy! I'm amazed how easy it is to use and especially how easy it is to download the videos. Technology changes so fast it's hard for us old folks to keep up, LOL.

My next tech investment is an ereader. Still debating which one, but that's my demand for Mother's Day.

What about you all, have you found some new tech toys???

Enjoy your week,

What's Up?

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!! I've finally tossed the last of the cake in the trash and replaced it with bananas...sigh. At least the weather has turned and I can get out of the house to walk. I'm busy working on Salvatore's story and working on my eldest son's graduation party (he's graduating from college...yikes) There's also my youngest son's birthday party, but he's reached that age that I probably won't even see him except when he wants his card :) Other than that I'm trying to ignore the mess building in the house and taking care of all the tedious details of life.

Hope your life is more exciting!

It's My Birthday!!

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter...mine was a lot of fun despite the miserable weather. Today's my birthday, but oddly enough the older I get the less they bother me :) Actually, I love birthdays...what could be better than cake and presents! Of course, it does mean working out twice as hard as I used to get rid of the cake-butt and I don't spend nearly as much time in front of a mirror as I used to, but on the up side my eye sight is going so I really can't see well enough to be worried :) I also get a card filled with money from my mother which means a trip to the bookstore...yeahhhhhh. Thanks to all of you I have a wish list a mile long. I can't wait.

Hope all is well with you,

Easter is swiftly approaching, which means I have to clean my house :( I love having family around, but it would be much easier if I had a fairy godmother who could wave her wand and magically make my house shine! Oddly enough when I used to dream about becoming a writer I pictured myself sitting in the sun with a delicious pool-boy bringing me drinks while I conjured my next great American novel . Now I'd settle for washer that doesn't rattle and a vacuum that actually picks up the dirt :) Big Sigh. Do you all have plans for Easter???

April Fool's

Wow, the year just keeps racing along, I can't believe it's already April. I did have a nice surprise, I found a gift card to Hastings that I'd tucked away from Christmas...yes, my house is that insane :) Now I have to consider what to buy with my fun little surprise. I've already pre-ordered Karen Chance's next book, but I'm not sure what else is coming out in April. Do you have any suggestions of can't miss books???

Hope you're enjoying your spring!
