It's Monday. Again

I really hate Mondays. (I have the song in my head again, btw.) Why do they have to suck so bad? And it's COLD again. 51 degrees and my heat is running right now. What is up with that? It's so much harder to face a Monday when you know it's cold outside. It also doesn't help when you start your day with your kids sniping at each other the whole morning while they are getting ready for school. You know nothing good comes from grounding your first child at 7:00 in the morning. I also got to start my Monday out by being confused. I thought I was supposed to go with my preggo friend for her first ultrasound today but it's not until tomorrow. Oh well. I have a hard enough time keeping my own appointments straight let alone someone else's.

Is anyone else watching The Tudors? This season so far, is awesome. I still think it's funny that Henry looks so young when at this point in show, he would have been about 42 years old. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is 30 years old and looks 30 years old.

Reading. Have I mentioned any books lately on my blog? For a while, that's all I talked about then I veered off course I think. Anyway, I've been a reading fool. Last week I finished Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: The Prodigal Son and Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods which was for my book group. I had mixed feelings about Koontz's book. I hesitate to say anything bad about his writing but I thought his saying that Shelley's Frankenstein was actually a work of nonfiction was too easy. He could have come up with a better, more original way of bringing his monster to life. As for Bryson's book, if you want to know my thoughts, check them out at the group. I had a lot to say. ;) My next read is as yet undetermined. I have several books in my TBR pile but I don't know what I want to attack next. Pretty unusual for me. The Mister is reading the second Frankenstein book so I'll read that after he's done and I'm reading the first Spiderwick with the oldest child but I'm reading it at her pace. I'm just not sure what I'm in the mood to read right now. When I figure it out, I'll let you know.


  1. It's freezing here again too. It's suppose to warm up by the end of the week again though. Hopefully it will stay that way. I haven't seen the Tudors but I aded Season 1 to my Netflix. I love Johnathan.
    I need to add my thought on Walk in The woods. I actualy picked up two more of Bryson's books this Saturday because I enjoyed Walk so much.

  2. Same here with the weather.

    You'll have to let me know what you think of the Tudors when you get it from Netflix.

    That's neat that you picked up more of Bryson's books. I plan on doing the same.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
