Thursday Thirteeners ROCK and New Books for the Pile

First off, I'd like to thank all of you who visited my TT this week and give a shout-out back to y'all for the FANtastic TT topics. Belly laughs galore, book recommendations, some great facts about sex (thanks Rose!) and a marvelous art survey (Candy - blogger at my response! I'm so sorry!! And it was really long so I'm not repeating it *grrrrrr*) I have been meaning to add my fave TTer's to my sidebar this week (sort of based on Shelley's idea of Love Links) but just haven't gotten around to it yet...
Why, you ask??

Potty training. Yes, my Sweetness (aka 2 3/4 yr old son) has finally deemed himself 'ready to be a big boy' -- (he's been fighting me for a while on this!) -- so the little white potty has taken up residence in our family room. Right next to the magazine rack. Like father, like son.

Went on a book buying spree at Costco the other day because apparently, I don't have enough books in my TBR pile (the sarcasm is practically pooling at my feet). My acquisitions:
Blue Shoes and Happiness by Andrew McCall Smith (part of the #1 Ladies Detective Agency series)
Promise Me by Harlen Coben
The Birth House by Ami McKay, and
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory.
I've been looking for the first book in JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series and both Chapters and Coles were out, so today I dragged #1 son to the used bookstore and voila -- there it was. Of course, now I have to hurry and finish Blue Shoes... so I can get back to the uber-macho-vamps. I'm so pathetic...

We're potty training too, and Sumo seems to want to follow big sis's lead.

More books, ARGH! I guess I'll be stopping by Costco tomorrow.

The chillin's are sick, so I have to run the errands by myself (YES!!!)

Rose said...

Thanks for the shout out and link love. Never a dull moment at my blog. lol

I miss the potty training days and all that fun stuff. :(

Potty Training! Oh, I love it. Smack dab in the middle of the living room?
I missed Roses facts on sex...must visit! I look forward to your thoughts on The Other Boleyn Girl. I bought it and haven't read it...my bad.

Good luck with the potty trained! I'm glad all my cats are litter-box trained, ROFL! :-D

And one can never have too many books. Well, maybe I should amend that a wee bit: I heard about a couple who had so many their floor fell in! ACK! :-D

The floor fell in?
(Note to self: remove stacks of hardbacks off of office room floor)

Shelley - I probably won't get to The Other Boleyn Girl for a while. I like to keep the reading selection simple when life is particularly hectic (like NOW!), but I imagine things will quieten down this summer (fingers crossed)

Amy - Sumo wants to too? Cool! Wouldn't it be great to get them both done at once? But I guess he's a bit young to be taken seriously...
Good luck!

It's Potty Time. It's Potty Time. It's Potty All The Time!!!!!!!

:) I am sooooo glad those days are over for me :) I thought my younger daughter would never fully embrace potty training.

A big WooHoo on the potty training! That's a major step. It seems like just the other day I was potty training mine, instead of the 13 or so years it really is. Boy, that makes me feel OLD!
