Life is too short to read a bad book.

Let it snow.....
Well, we got snow last night. Not a lot, but it's a combination of rain, snow, slush and general yuck which makes driving very interesting. It's pretty and it smells so wonderful outside, but I'm not looking forward to the drive home.

I finished reading the short story "Hot Toy" by Jennifer Crusie in the Santa, Baby anthology. It was cute ~ I chose to ignore the levels of ridiculous that were in the story and concentrated on Nolan and Trudy. They had great chemistry ~ I'll write more on this later.

I started reading The Pleasure Slave by Gena Showalter last night ~ it sucked me right in and I'm already on page 100. Great story so far. I love how Tristan pushes Julia's buttons.

Visit to the doctor yesterday went okay ~ all my bloodwork came back normal, so that's a relief. So now, I go back next week for a bone scan.

Don't forget!:

The ladies over at Sanctuary's Finest are doing a fun end of the year giveaway.

Please visit their blog and check it out!

    Hey you!

    Thanks for participating in our free book giveaway! =) Good luck to you! I'm glad that the doctor's visit went okay and your blood work is okay. Ugh, that doesn't sound like the snow I want, all yucky and slushy.

    I can't wait to read your review on the books you just got and are reading...I have money to burn on books I cannot wait!

    Dylan ~ Absolutely! I'm always up for free stuff :-) Hopefully I'll post tonight on the JC ~ I'm hoping to finish the GS tomorrow so maybe will post on it this weekend.

    I'm glad your blood tests came out ok.

    It was pouring rain yesterday!!! My dumb butt left my umbrella in the car. I was soaked!!

    I'm glad your tests came back okay! What kind of bone scan? I have to get a bone scan every six to 12 months and I love it. I look so tall and skinny on the screen! lol Let us know what the results are.

    Wish we'd get just a little bit of snow here!

    Izzy ~ I've never been smart enough to travel with an umbrella. I don't think I've ever owned one.

    Jen ~ The scan is just for my fingers to see why the joints are so painful. The doctor says he thinks it's low-grade arthritis, but I need the scan before he does the shots.

    Glad that the bloodwork came back alright and I hope your feet are feeling better! I know you mentioned that the shot was maybe kicking in.

    It's Christmas Eve and I need to go to bed soon but just wanted to wish you Happy Holidays!

    I hope your snow lasted long enough to have a "White Christmas".

    Have a merry...

    Let's hear it for okay blood work! That was a great Christmas gift! Hope your holiday was Merry and Bright!

    Cindy ~ I hope you had a Merry Christmas. We won't be celebrating until Friday because my Mom and my brother-in-law had to work Christmas day, but I did go to a few friends houses and also had a nice dinner with my sister and niece.

    Tara Marie ~ The snow melted the day after it fell, so no white Christmas here. I love it when the snow is on the ground.

    Zeek ~ Thank you! I hope you had a Merry Christmas :-)

    Mailyn ~ So glad to see you. Hope you had a happy holiday.

    Jen ~ We'll celebrate on Friday, but there will be about 15 of us (my sister's marrying into a big family and so it's a combined Christmas with both of their families).

    Hey babe! I've missed you. :) I'm almost ready for a vacation from my vacation. lol

    How's your time off going?

    Any who, I hope you had a great Christmas (today, right?) and a great New Year, too.

    Hey Holly! Good to see you. I'm wishing I'd taken more time off ~ I'm dreading going back to work on Tuesday. I've had a fairly lazy week. Yes, Christmas with the family was yesterday ~ there was something like 18 of us total.

  • At 1:46 PM, Blogger Holly

    I was way lazy, too, and not at all happy to come back to work yesterday. I just want another week, or two, or YEAR off. PLEASE???

    A year might be nice ~ I might be rested up by then.
