Friday Five

Sorry, no vlog today as I decided to have a make-up free day!

First good news!  My colonoscopy came up clean!  This means I don't have to come back for another ten years.

YAY!

This week has been crazy with family drama on both sides.  I was reading the paper today and saw this ad from AARP on a caregiver silently screaming.  I realized this is us.  If you don't know, my mother-in-law 'decided' to move back to Southern Ca.  My 25 year old nephew is living with her and is a real saint. Let's just say this has been a very trying experience.

I was happy to find this: http://www.aarp.org/home-family/caregiving/?cmp=RDRCT-CRGNG_APR12_012

I'm finding out husband and I are a part of a growing trend: caregivers with aging parents.  I love this site as it has some links that hopefully will help.

Now to books!

1. Loved, LOVED, this book:

My YABC review:

2. Loved this book too!

**Can you tell this one is a big hit?  Lots of positive reviews for this romance that has a ROSWELL the TV series feel plus a hot guy!









3. Right now reading this:

I met Hachette marketing director at ALA and asked for some James Patterson.  So I was really excited to have a package come with this included in it.  It's Patterson at his best!











4. Trying to get into this one:

The beginning is amazing but when it goes back in time?  I'm having a hard time staying with it.  I loved THE MAZE RUNNER so I'll give this one a chance.














5. Also need I say more about this one?

Love the covers of these books and the premise is really fun.  A teen puts on a dress and goes back in time.  This time around she goes back to 1770 in Paris, France.













**Guilty pleasure:

This Friday is our 27th wedding anniversity.  Holy cow.  Time goes by fast, doesn't it?

Later, hope to go out to a nice restaurant.  Plus, maybe go to a fun movie with son:

Happy anniversary! And I'm glad you have a clean colon :)

Thanks! I was so happy when doctor told me I was clean! Husband had a polyp removed, which was benign, so I was worried that would happen with me too. But I'm ok! The prep was the nasty part.
