Another List

I've started 3 different books in the last 3 days and can't seem to settle on what I want to read.  It's the middle of Saturday afternoon, and I'm bored, I decided to make a list of odd thoughts ...
  1. My son has 3 birthday parties in 8 days this month.  At what age do the kids' birthday parties stop?
  2. This summer we finally broke down and bought the child a Nintendo DS.  Guess who plays it almost as much as he does?  I even have my own games.
  3. We're making calzones for dinner tonight, I didn't have the heart to tell my husband it would have been cheaper and easier to have them delivered from one of our local pizza places.
  4. Our local supermarket gets french bread from a bakery in NYC and it's really good.  I put the oven on this afternoon to help the pizza dough defrost for the afore mentioned calzones (the dough is in a bag on top of the stove) and I could smell bread cooking.  I'd put a loaf of the french bread in the oven last night planning to use it for dinner, didn't use it and left it there.  I now have one giant, really crispy crouton.
  5. We had a 9:00 am soccer game today. It was 29 degrees when we got there.  The child had on 4 layers of clothing, a hat and gloves.  I went to Dunkin' Donuts and bought a box of Hot Chocolate for the kids--big hit.
  6. The child got his first pair of glasses this week.  One eye is weaker than the other and he needs them for reading.
  7. One of the books I started was Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts.  I read Visions in White earlier this year.  I liked VIW but I was left not really sure I even liked the 4 women the bride series is about.  After starting BOR I'm still not so sure about them.
  8. I pre-ordered Linda Howard's Ice this week along with a couple of other books and the new Stephen King for the hubby.   Thanks to the on-line price wars I got the hardcovers for $9 and took advantage of the super saver shipping.  I know the Howard is really short, but I'm a fangirl.
Junior just asked me to snuggle up on the sofa with him and watch the Polar Express, so I've got to go.

Have a great day, and happy reading.

I'm not entirely sure on the birthday party issue - but I'm thinking your stuck until he's at least a teen.

Moving to CA meant The Long Great Hunt For A Decent Pizza. After 5 years, we've finally found a place that does pretty good NY-style. We're still on the hunt for decent calzones though :(

Brrrrrrrr - soccer games back East in the fall!

I've been seeing mixed reviews on Bed Of Roses. I didn't really have an interest in this series - but dang, those trade paperbacks are really lovely to look at, touch and pet. Says me.

For the love of Mike--teen years :(

The calzones actually came out pretty good.

I think I bought BOR because it is beautiful. I finished it this morning and didn't love it, but didn't hate it either. I have some issues with the series that I'm probably going to blog about this week.

I love your list posts! I'm so glad to know I'm not the only person currently addicted to online games. Okay, so I'm stretching it but hey, a game is a game ;)

Kid's parties? Yikes. That's all I got.

And Jr. was already too handsome. A pair of glasses and he'll be too cute for the girls!

Cindy--Lists make life easier :) I can't do much without them anymore.

Add two missing front teeth to Junior's cuteness and way too cute right now.

1. For girls birthday parties continue through high school, for the boys it generally stops in middle school unless you've a laser tag place near you. then you're stuck.

5. It hasn't gotten colder than 45 here. Not sure if I like t hat, but the lack of a heating bill will be nice.

6. Have had to wear glasses since I was 8, I sympathize.

Happy Reading~Amanda
