Supernatural is supposed to be on tonight, but I just read that it has been postponed and will not be on until next week.  I was so looking forward to it this weekend, now I have to wait a whole week.

Oh, there you are

I've read five books so far this month, if I continue to read five books a month then for 2011 I will read a total of 60, which is below my goal for the  year of 70.  In order to achieve my goal I have to read about six books a month.  I am currently reading a short book that I could easily finish by the end of the month.  Still waiting on many books at the library and I keep reading some reading blogs that increase my book list even more.

As for TV shows, I'm excited that The Vampire Diaries is coming back tonight.  Although I won't be able to watch it until this weekend.  Supernatural is on tomorrow night, but I won't watch it until the weekend too.  I watch Fringe now since it's on Fridays.  Plus Dan watches Fringe with me but not Supernatural.

Currently working on a Dragon for X, the pattern that I found on Ravelry.  He is a very demanding and impatient kid though.  Geez, what a slave driver.  He's constantly "When are you going to finish it"  &qu…

Not much

Not much going on except that it is freezing.  Times like these really make me question why I live here.  This morning my thermometer said -21F,  that's right, that's a negative sign in front of it!  X said that it's too cold to go outside for recess and then in the car when I told him to hurry up and buckle up he said "My body won't move because it's too cold"  So I'm thinking it's good soup weather.  I plan to make some tomorrow, tonight it's Picadillo.

So far I've read 3 books and I just went to the library and picked up a couple more.  My goal this month is to read at least 5 books.  So only two more to go.

I've started watching Roswell again.  I bought all three seasons last year, had a marathon of them and haven't watched them since.  I had never seen that show before and actually caught the first season on Hulu and got hooked and had to buy all 3 seasons.  So this time I'm taking my time and watching them.  Also still w…

Returning Shows and New Shows

Now that Christmas is over most shows are returning to finish off their season, some have already returned.  Here are some shows I'm looking forward to (all times are central times):

V returned but I really gave up on that show so not watching it this season.  Also have given on up on Desperate Housewives.  A show I should have given up on a while ago.

Hawaii Five-0 on CBS returned Monday, January 3rd at 9PM.  This is a new show that I'm really enjoying.

No Ordinary Family on ABC returned on Tuesday, January 4th at 7PM.  It a pretty good show and my kids seem to like it.

Modern Family on ABC returned Wednesday, January 5th at 8PM.  Watched this show on and off last season and really started watching it this season.  The show is very funny and I laugh every time I watch it.
Grey's Anatomy on ABC returned on Thursday, January 6th at 8PM.  
The Cape on NBC debuted on Sunday, January 9th at 8PM.  The first two episode were aired then and it was interesting.  I'll probably wat…

New Year, New Books

This is a series I've been reading since last year.  It's an adult series by Richelle Mead.  She is the author the Vampire Academy Series and this is the Georgina Kincaid Series.  This is from Richelle Mead's Website:

Vampire Academy Series

Two races of vampires walk our world. The Moroi are alive and wield elemental magical, while the Strigoi are undead and evil--feeding on the innocent to survive. Rose Hathaway--a half-vampire with poor impulse control--is training to be a bodyguard for a Moroi princess. Learning to decapitate and stake is hard enough, but Rose's real danger may lie in an illicit romance with one of her instructors... This is Richelle's only young adult series. It's received honors from the American Library Association and been on the New York Times and USA Today Bestseller lists.
Georgina Kincaid Series As if love wasn't hard enough! Imagine not being able to touch your boyfriend without sucking away his soul. Welcome to the world of Georgina…

New Year 2011

Happy New Year! 
It's hard to believe another year has passed.  My family and I had a great holiday.  My kids have way too many toys, they sure are lucky.  Dan had his birthday on the 28th and got more gifts (some wii games and tools).  I have to wait two months until my birthday.  I told Dan that I want pizza and an ice cream cake for my birthday.  I also have to start thinking about O's birthday, which is in March.  She will be turning 4 this year, which is so hard to believe.  I'll have to see what she wants for her party.  Last year it was Strawberry Shortcake and that included decorations, strawberry cupcakes and plates.  I'm sure she'll want Princess or Barbies or even Spider-Man.  For some reason she LOVES Spider-Man, which when you think about it, what is there not to love.

With the new year I have been thinking of some resolutions:
1.  Exercise more -  I do exercise already but I'm thinking I need to do it longer
2.  Read more books - In 2009 I read 66…
