Nanna -DD- Question: I was messing around with my new Tablet, trying to find a great background photo, and got me thinking what picture do you guys have as wallpaper on you laptops, computers and more.....?

I finally found this one which is absolutely beautiful IMO - I'm a sucker for great color works ;P http://www.goodreads.com/photo/user/5...

Ohhh very pretty. I had a pic of all my nieces and nephews however I got a new niece and the kids complain when they see the pic and she is not in it. So now I have a picture of characters from the TV show The Wuzzles. I loved that show when I was little.

Thanks Carolyn!

Update ... I am fairly confident in my testing performance. Biology flew by and after I check a few updates its off to grab some lunch at Chipotle ... the best mexican grill ever! But sadly I have a tickle in my throat that I am hoping goes away and does not turn into something more like Strep or something.

well all here at home are sick, I thank my sister. The only two that got away were my twins but they're miserable due to their boosters. Now I know I have to bring the army in to hold my son down for them, he's freaking strong as an ox took all the nurse, my mom and me to hold him down...I am soo in trouble in the future with him. Hope everyone has a good weekend :)


~Jennifer~ (Book_Addiction) | 608 comments Some days it just really sucks being associated with the military. For those of you who believe in the power of prayer, please pray for my family. We've got something coming up soon that's just really, really, going to suck since we've never had one since our son was born. :(

Oh gosh, I remember that from getting my Kindergarten boosters (many many moons ago) took 6 nurses my doc and my mom to hold me.

I'm praying everything works out well for your family.




I'm sitting here wondering if I've lost control of my hands/fingers or if my mouse is just crazy. I keep scrolling hundreds of rows or columns past what I'm trying to do in this huge excel worksheet. So glad it's Friday and I won't have to deal with this tomorrow.

Aestas Book Blog Sending good wishes to your family Jennifer

I'm sitting here on set while the crew tries to figure out what is going on... "hurry up and wait" is the story of my life. Sigh lol.

Yay for weekend tomorrow - I have so much to read!!
I think there should be a designated reading day every week where the world shuts down and just leaves you alone for a day in a cozy corner with your book. I think it should be the law.

You so get my vote for making this a law!! Best idea I've heard all week! ;-D

I second that vote Aestas!!! I have a cold so I decided to stay home today so I'm kinda/sorta doing it. But, I have some academic reading I need to do first and then it's back to Twilight.......AAAARGH!!!

I strangely remember mine too...It took 5 nurses, my doctor and my Mom to hold me down.I kicked one of the nurses in the face and if I remember correctly I think I kicked my doctor in the balls lol. You know now that I think of it that could possibly be my source of fear to needles.

Praying for ya, I know bits and pieces of the military, I can take a guess or two at what's going on. Thoughts and prayers

I remember mine as well, I shook up all the kids that were there to get theirs. No one knew what was happening till I started my screaming. It took them about 4 nurses to get me to be still. Althought I can remember being sick in the hospital with food poisoning as a tot and it took 6 nurses, my dr, my mom, and the phlebotomist to hold me down. I may have been weak during that time but I was sure as hell not getting a shot


Shannon  (bookjunkie57) | 201 comments Sam I'm still fully scared of them myself. I have to look at a wall in the opposite direction and concentrate really hard on not moving because everything in me wants to jump up and run away.

Okay so I went to patient first after work and was in and out in like 30 minutes or something but regardless I have an upper resp. infection ... which leads to lots of oj, some decongestion and a days rest ... no antibotics ... unless I get worse. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it doesn't get that extreme. So while I'm resting happy reading and happy super bowl for all the football fanatics.

Thanks Shannon. How are classes going? I have already had my first round of exams!


Shannon  (bookjunkie57) | 201 comments Basically overwhelming. Had my first Stat test last Tuesday and my first Bio test tomorrow. I do not have warm fuzzy feelings about either.


Danniella Duff (danniellaalisaduff) | 18 comments Just watched a movie with my boyfriend and drinking beer trying to figure out what book to read. I can't believe how cold it is here in England. I love visiting my family but I can't wait to go back home to Cali

Oh Rin I hope you get feeling better! Sucks being sick, but it's as good as an excuse as any to relax and read!

I'm spending another Sunday listening to the BF clicking away on the computer (working...boo) when we were supposed to be chilling...Someone explain to me why I picked a work-aholic?! Though it does allow me to get a lot of reading done without feeling guilty, so there is that...LOL!

That would be amazing. lol I'm gonna wait til he's really good and asleep and then whisper "Let Jen sleep late, Let Jen sleep late" in his ear and hope the subliminal mojo works.

From cover to cover. It was very good although I felt bad for Eric.
And now I think I'm going to read ...

yep it's finally cleared up thanks for asking!


Shannon  (bookjunkie57) | 201 comments @Dawn Great! I hate it when any of my nieces or nephews are sick. Its such a helpless feeling when all you can do is sit and wait for meds to work.


Jenne  (JennetheInstigator) | 244 comments We've been lucky this winter none of us have gotten sick. *knock on wood now that I said that*

@Dawn glad your son's pink eye cleared up. That's such a nasty miserable thing to have. Poor guy I bet he was miserable.

@Jennifer I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. I hope it all works out.


Well we had such a good time gambling this last weekend and did pretty good. We've decided to go back in a couple of weeks. It's hard not to when you can go and it doesn't cost you a thing!
