And the fun continues! I love long holiday weekends….still cleaning out closets here! The pile of stuff to be dropped off at the goodwill donation center is growing, and it feels so good to CLEAN IT OUT!
Do you go through this same kind of re-adjustment when the Holidays start to settle in? I’ll go for months without having anything bother me, then all at once..BAM! I can’t leave it alone and have to ream out everything! DH and Jeff are keeping a wide berth!
DH’s latest obsession is his tennis ball machine. It should be named “Who needs a partner?!” But he charges up the battery on that thing, and goes to the tennis court to hit balls. I’m going in a bit to go walk the walking track WHILE he is hitting balls, because watching a man hitting balls shooting out of a machine is only a spectator sport for a limited amount of time!
The weather here has been just LOVELY the past few days ---today’s high is 68 with sunshine. Yes, there are reasons why I love living south, and this is one of them!
Oh yes, and the reason for this afternoon interlude ---

Category: Contemporary Fiction
Mousy London lawyer Alice Love gets her identity stolen and finds her true self in this rocky tale of trust, personality makeovers, and a lying globe-trotting thief.
“She didn’t leave me any worse off, in the end,” Alice says of Ella, a work pal who makes off with Alice’s credit card info to set up a new life in Hollywood. But before the ruse is over, Alice retaliates by morphing into a compulsive stalker, taking on Ella’s identity, and discovering that a lot of little lies add up to a whole lot of fun.
The transformation nearly costs her the love of a good man, but Alice comes (nearly) to her senses by the time she corners her arch-frenemy. McDonald (The Popularity Rules) keeps the pace brisk, but a plot busy with an international chase and Alice’s many reinventions proves on occasion too much to handle, and Ella, paradoxically, proves a more intriguing character than Alice.
What works best is what lies beneath all the frantic action: a good old-fashioned romantic page-turner.
I’m still fighting the holiday thing. My favorite radio station just went Christmas 24/7. UGH! It’s just too much to handle! Boy am I ever glad I found that ipod!
