I was going to wait until later, after the game to write this but I needed to keep myself preoccupied before all the nervous energy coursing through my body drives me nuts! lol My mother would think I was nuts if I told her I was feeling so nervous because of a football game! Yep, the JETS are making me feel like a jittery bowl of jello. In approximately 45 minutes they play the New England Patriots. It probably won't be a pretty game. But, as with all Jets games, I'm hoping that, like earlier in the season, we pull out a win. Oh boy! would that be great!
I haven't been a very good blogger this week and I want to apologize to all my friends and visitors out there! It was another week when I didn't feel very well and I didn't feel much like myself. The good thing is that yesterday I felt much better, more like the old me! Hopefully whatever was making me feel blah is completely gone. I am planning to spend the week visiting all of the blogs I haven't visited regularly in the last couple of weeks as well as reading and responding to your posts. I also want to post some long overdue reviews, and get my Goodreads and my new Library Thing accounts updated. I need a central list of all the books on my TBR list, the books I want to read but don't have in my possession yet. That's a very long list! and it's on a piece paper here, over there and some are even listed on-line. It's chaos! I even found a partial list in an old book that fell off the shelf the other day! lol I used to be so organized and neat at work, my desk was beautiful. But at home I just had a big pile of stuff in a couple of different places. And I seem to have kept that up. But I am determined to get organized starting this week!
As many of you know, Bob went to the vet this week. Bob can breathe easily now, he's sleeping less and has more energy so he's really enjoying life now! He no longer makes any grunting or sniffling sounds which is great news. In all honesty though, some of his sounds were funny and charming - I miss them! Not to mention, I no longer hear Bob when he's approaching the house or coming into the room. But it's a small price to pay and I am happy he's feeling much better. Betsy the kitten is growing fast and furiously. She's become a big mush and loves to climb on Sam or me when we're in bed and be scratched around her ears! Betsy likes to sleep during the day and play at night. She likes to have a playmate rather than play alone. So she's taken to making Magoo play with her by jumping on him when he is sitting on the bed and pushing at him with her paw! It's very funny to watch. Eventually Magoo tires of this and gets up to run away which is exactly what Betsy wants. She runs after him and eventually jumps him. They wrestle on the ground until Magoo gets free of Betsy and runs away. Of course, Betsy chases after him and it begins again! LOL
All of the cats are doing very well!
I stopped in Barnes & Noble after we dropped Bob off at the vet. There are so many books I would love to buy but I also couldn't decide which ones to buy! lol I hate being in a mood like that when I'm in a store ready and willing to shop. I came across "The Gathering" by Anne Enright which I want to read so I picked that up and then read some Christmas magazines. I love Christmas and Holiday magazines!
I am still reading Stand the Storm by Breena Clarke. It's a really wonderful book. But, I confess that I didn't read it much this week because I was lazy and gravitated more towards lighter books such as Hungry Woman in Paris by Josefina Lopez and The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond which I finished this morning. I have several reviews that I hope to post this week. The reviews are for Cherries in Winter by Suzan Colon, The Last Bridge by Teri Coyne and The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond. Along with Stand the Storm, I'm also reading Double Take by Kevin Michael Connolly this week.
Almost time for the game. Dare I say it? Go J - E - T - S!! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
