Day 2

This blog is about my 60 days of vacation.  Yes, you heard right...as a school secretary I get two months off.... there was a time when I worked summer school, but after getting sick for awhile, I decided to not work in the summer and just chill out.

Sometimes I book a vacation but this year it will be just relaxing at home.  Side trips might be nice.  Meantime, on Day 2 - I was at the doctor's.  OK OK, that's not a vacation, but I had to go.  Blood work etc. came back good, not to return until November.  Grandson slept over last night, so we treated him to breakfast when I returned from the doctor.

Talking about breakfast.....what do your kids eat.  GS just had toast and butter with chocolate milk.  And you know they get whatever they want when they are at grandmas.  Probably not the best of breakfasts but....its vacation time!!!


Great deal..

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


From the beginning to the end this story gets you hooked. Lucy and Chris are the neighbors from hell. And each chapter brings you closer to Jamie and Kirsty as they go through the ordeal of being harassed by the neighbors. Things finally get out of hand when Jamie's friend almost dies, and all gets worse. No spoilers here. A must read and don't be surprised if you want to kill them yourself. Very powerful story.

Hopping day ONE

Although I am on vacation technically, it seems the day still started off early....too early.  It's vacation and I should be able to sleep in.  But alas, up and at 'em.....and on the way to.....the doctor's.  Hubby not doing good, so had to return to doc to check out meds, etc.  Thought it was a beautiful day and not wanting to stay home....we ventured from the doctor to..............the cemetery?  OK, it's been awhile since we visited the folks and it being good weather, we dropped by.  They were doing ok.

Only a few feet away was the LIE so we decided to hop on that and go out to the island for........some shopping.  The old dining room set leaves a lot to be desired - dont ever get glass table tops especially with children.  All scratched - and well it was time.

Do you know how difficult it is to find an oak dining room set?  Well, nearly impossible...better yet, it is impossible.  So we settled for something close, pretty, all wood with only 4 chairs - so had to buy 4 more....it comes with a leaf so the table will be big when we need it....



Now, after all that we realized it is already 3 pm and we haven't had lunch - actually I never had breakfast....so we stopped at a diner, had a bite to eat and here we are at home....relaxing.....need a nap maybe....

SHADOW OF A DOUBT

Shadow of a DoubtShadow of a Doubt by Tiffany Snow

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Ivy and Devon....an unusual couple. He's a spy and she is his ??? Well, he drops in on her whenever he wants, she has no contact with him....but just when she resigns herself to this relationship Devon professes his love for her...Thinking there is a closer relationship little does Ivy know that his spy life catches up to him and involves her. Stuck between her love for Devon and her own secrets, plus her involvement in a web of trouble, Ivy's life becomes complicated - being kidnapped and not knowing who to trust anymore. The story itself was intriguing but alas I could only give it 3 stars because.........there are no answers to many questions about this story...or maybe that is the answer.

The Perfect Son

The Perfect SonThe Perfect Son by Barbara Claypole White

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A warm emotional story of a family fighting to keep it all together. The husband Felix trying to be perfect and in control. Their special needs son Harry who is fighting his own battle. And Ella the mother and backbone of the family who keeps it all together. Her massive heart attack brings them all closer together and gives them all exactly what they need. A bond they didnt know they had. Great book.
