paranormal romance.

ok, anyone who knows me knows that i am a romance novel freak. so i recently joined eharlequin to purchase novels, and i have to admit, it's my newest obsession.

they sent me two free books from their nocturne lineup...and i enjoyed them. so i went off and purchased 7 more.

now WHY did i do that?

i don't know if it's just me being so stressed out and cranky from my aunt flo visiting, or if i'm already wanting my own romance novel to commence from HOMECOMING on with my husband, or if i just find these novels lackluster because the plots are so corny or overworked...but i cannot stand this new wave of romance authors.

the novels aren't holding my attention. maybe i'm just not into paranormal romance. ugh. and now, i'm stuck with basically 7 books that i purchased that i don't even want to read. but they are MY books--which means i'm stuck with them! *sigh* that's fine.

for my next order, i'm keeping it sweet and simple, with what i like. contemporary romance or historical.

they also have that athena force lineup that sounds so good and the nascar lineup...which has covers that i just love to look at. definitely gonna have to purchase a few of those bad boys, even if they are like 5.00 each.

yes, i judge books by the cover--especially romance novels.

yeah, i'm sticking to what i know. if i read one more overdone, overdramatic, crickety, poorly written plot paranormal romance, i'm going to have to bust harlequin in the head to the white meat.

of things related and unrelated - 8/26/08

i have decided to start blogging more often because i tend to lose myself in the blogosphere and then have a difficult time gaining myself back.

i am really loving my hair these days. it's growing out and longer, and now it's starting to look defined.

school starts in one week. and i am so not ready.

my hubby and i have decided that we can pull these last 11 months, but it is going to break our behinds. we are tired and want prison to be over with already. but today, we have decided that this time is nothing compared to what we've done.

i paid off my subscription to figure magazine. I LOVE FIGURE MAGAZINE! yay--another year of beauty--full figure style!

i got a 10.00 off coupon for my kid's school clothes--2 days after i brought them. i am going to see if i can get my 10.00 back by going to the store to present the coupon.

i really missed reading some of my favorite blogs. having a life outside of the i-net can so suck at times.

the business is coming along beautifully. i am basically ready to start. now time to learn about marketing techniques for the small business world!

it's already 2:30 pm. where does the time fly?

mrs officer.

lol. i love this song. in so many ways, it reminds me of my hubby and i. because i am so the good girl, and he is so the bad boy...and our history is very "good side of the law/bad side of the law".

everytime i hear it, it makes me snicker.

it seems i'm always sick.

hmm. i wonder how is it that i'm the only person i know that gets one type of sickness right after another, back to back.

i've always been a *sickly* child, but as i got older, my immune system seemed to be getting stronger--or so i thought.

here i am tonight, feeling a cold coming on! and i am JUST getting over an ear canal infection in my right ear and what felt like the beginning of an ear canal infection in my left ear. i actually can't lay on my right side still because it's still achy and draining. and here i getting a sore throat, stuffy nose, and all around *achy* feeling.

hubby told me, "you are the only person i know that honestly gets more than 20 colds per year". it's no fun i tell ya--because it does happen often, but only for like 1-2 days. i don't know how long the average cold lasts, but i know mine seem pretty short, albeit severe.

so i'm still sick. this is hindering business progress, as i'm doing everything myself, and well...if i'm in the bed aching i can't be up like a mad scientist creating new breakthroughs in my business!


it's always something.
