Magic Mike!!!

Okay, so how many of you are going to see Magic Mike this weekend?  I'm going tonight with 8 other ladies.  We're meeting at Chili's first for a couple of drinks and then heading to the theater.  It's all in the same parking lot so it will be easy.
So, my big question is, who is your favorite?  I really can't decide.  I love them all.  I've seen everything each of them have been in and this is just a drool worthy film for me.

Any of these I should go to?

Unless I want to go to NYC, this book store is the only one that I know of that does book signings.  Do you see any authors here that I should definitely go see?

Summer Plans?

Do you have any summer plans?  Is it something you do every year or is it something new?  I was hoping to take the family to see my dad in NC but I don't think my doctor will let me go.  I had a heart attack a few weeks ago and need to stay close to home for a while until he thinks I'm steady enough to go away.  Anyone traveling outside the country?  If so, where are you going?  I've never been further than the eastern U.S.

This has nothing to do with books today but it's on my mind anyway.  Do any of you have teenagers? Or did you have teenagers?  I have 4 children, ages 18, 13, 10, and 7.  My 18 year old graduates high school in 2 weeks and can't wait to get out of the house.  She is moving upstate NY where she will attend school and live with her boyfriend.  Can you say freak out?  I can't tell her what to do anymore and I just pray that she will be happy.  Now onto my 13 year old son.  He is such a smart, kind, loving kid but his mouth is horrible.  He thinks he can walk around here and do what he wants.  He talks back and is mean to his younger siblings.  Do you think this is a phase?  It's driving me crazy!  We've punished him, taken things away, and have even threatened to put soap in his mouth.  I know parenting is a touchy subject, but I'm going out of my mind!  They have all been really well behaved since I just got home from the hospital from a heart attack, but now everything is going back to the way it was.  I have not really stressed out over this since I know it is bad for me.  Sorry, I'm really just looking to vent a little.

So Sorry My Friends

I have been MIA again.  I wrote a post last week saying how I was in the hospital for a heart attack. Right after writing that, I had another one.  What happened was that, on 5/25, I had a total blockage in a main artery.  They put in a stent and I was doing okay.  I went home on 5/29.  I wrote my post when I got home apologizing for dropping the ball and missing giveaways.  A bit after that, I was in even more pain than I had with the first heart attack.  The ambulance brought me to a further away, but more specialized hospital.  There, they found that not only did the stent clog up again, which is very rare, but I was totally resistant to the anti platelet that I was put on.  I was in ICU for 3 days and hardly slept with all the wires hooked up to me.  My blood pressure kept plummeting so it was a long road.  I am now home(once again) and am going to need some time recuperating.  I feel fine except that I'm exhausted.  Please say a prayer that everything keeps working the way it should and that I start feeling better.  Thank you so much for your patience.
