Overdue Library Books

  • Greg Iles: The Footprints of God : A Novel

    Greg Iles: The Footprints of God : A Novel
    Just started but already addicted. I've read most of the other books by this author and I've never been dissapointed. My favorite so far has been "Black Cross."

  • J.R.R. Tolkien: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3)

    J.R.R. Tolkien: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3)
    Reading it before seeing it on the big screen. I read the first two last year and loved them.

  • Wally Lamb: I Know This Much Is True

    Wally Lamb: I Know This Much Is True
    This is a book that is so deep and intense, there's no way to barrel through it. I've found it a bit of a roller coaster ride. I was hooked in the first chapter and then spent then next 6 chapters convincing myself to keep reading. I'm really glad I did. By the end of the book I felt I knew the characters personally. The author does an excellent job of drawing you into the story. I highly recommend it. It's very long, ~900 pages, but well worth it. (*****)

Popcorn with Genuine Imitation Butter

  • Just Married (2003)
    I went into this movie with low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. It's mostly slapstick/situation comedy but was quite amusing. Ted and I both enjoyed it. (7/10)
  • High Noon (1952)
    If you haven't seen it - rent it! Although I did feel like my parents... "Isn't that so and so? Is he still alive? Wasn't he in...?" Great drama and suspense. 9/10
  • Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
    Great movie for the whole family. Erin and Teddy both enjoyed it and they usually only like cartoons. It's also a great way to learn about another culture - the kids had a lot of questions about the Indian culture after seeing this movie. (8/10)

On the Tube

  • American Chopper
    Yes, they're dysfunctional - but they make such cool choppers!
  • The Apprentice
    I accidentally watched the first episode. Now I'm hooked. Damn these reality shows.
  • ER
    This is the only show I watch religiously.

LOL... Been there, done that! At least you had the sense to make it a pretend slumber party. Our daughter's first, she invited seven girls. Horror! Add that to our kids, and it was total chaos...


Oh wow.I would have crawled in a closet and hid until the parents got


Helpful tip #1: Invite girls who you have had play-dates with. If they are well behaved then they can come.
#2: Don't invite children who don't behave!!
When Lillianna turned 6 in October we had a sleepover with 7 of her friends. They ranged in age from 5-7. They were all well behaved sweetie pie girls.Ok they got a little rowdy dancing to the Lizzie Mcguire cd but so did I!!! We had a blast. We were all asleep by 11pm and up at 7am. They were all gone by noontime. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!


Only one post in the whole last three weeks! Need more! :) I miss these wonderful stories.
