February Is Now

I'm busy entering ballots for the 2010 AAR Annual Reader's Poll so I've been a touch busier on the computer than usual. It ends this Sunday at midnight so head on over if you feel like entering a ballot.

Then it will be a bit busy as we do up the results. This will be mixed in with the arrival of a baby for Gorgeous Cousin! My brain hasn't even processed it yet but I am very excited.

As to other things in life, Bob is now working from home so we're kind of in each others grill at all times. I remember this from years ago when Bob switched to working from home. There is an adjustment period but I feel like we're much more ready for it than the last time. So at the moment, he is still working for the company that has let him go on contract. The contract goes from week to week and I'm thinking this Friday might be his last day but we'll just have to wait and see.

After that, Bob has some irons in the fire. He has so many ideas I just have to wait and see where his Aries brain lands. My Virgo will just have to deal.

One thing though is Bob gets house bound much like I do. The problem is he wants to leave the house right when I get up. I remember this from the last time also. I get up, showered, dressed and out the door in about 1/2 hour. I think it'll be better for me as for the past few months I've been having a hard time getting out of bed. We were ready to get out tonight but my stomach was giving me the gears. Not sure if it's anxiety or just a bug like thingie. Who knows. I just knew going out tonight was not on my game plan.

The other night I did make him spend some quality time at Chapters.

I bought 2 books which was more than I thought I would pick up.

And they are from authors I have not read before. It was nice to browse and read the blurbs without feeling like I had to get out of the store.

Nightshade by Michelle Rowen - I think I was just picking up books and opened the book to read the scene that is normally written in the front of the book. Basically, some biting and fighting between what I'm guessing are the H/H and I was in. I'm hoping dark and dreamy the way I like 'em.

And Ms. Rowen has quite a backlist. Here's hoping this one is a hit!

Kiss At Your Own Risk by Stephanie Rowe - this one I picked up because I'm sure I have read one of her books and really enjoyed it. A pissed off hero and a woman who has accidentally killed a few people she loved and yeah, I'm there.

Brilliantly it was the copyright dates that got me to buy these two books.


Awesome. I can start me some early reading!

Also, I canceled those pre-orders from Amazon and can now put them under the one with gift certificate. As long as I don't make the same mistake!

Good thing on canceling the pre-orders, Cindy ;)

I have Kiss at your Own Risk in my TBR pile as well! :) I hope these books are as funny as her previous ones :)

Oh on Bob working from home. Well as long as you two adjust, it's going to be a good thing :) LOL, it'll also give you experience for when he retires! LOL.

Hey Nath - I may pre-order the Singh book because it is a HC and it's cheaper online. I'm sure I'll have something going on by May 31st (pool!) to keep me from the bookstore for a few days ;)

And retirement! We're not that old! ;)

LOL, no, I know... but still :) it's good practice. Seriously, it took my parents a year to get used to it ^_^;
