I just added the first of the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton to my TBR pile, but I'm afraid it's gonna be awhile before I get to it. I just finished Fannie Flagg's new one-Redbird Christmas-it was a quick, sweet holiday read and I always enjoy her characters. Now on to-And A Puzzle To Die On by Parnell Hall-it's the 6th in the Puzzle Lady Series-so far so good. Mickie
Wicked, The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West - by Gregory McGuire - that was a good book! Pretty intense!I belong to a neighborhood book club and our book for next month is Amagansst by Mike Mills - anyone read it yet? It is nonfiction.

[quote:b186d72e5b="Shar-on"]Have you noticed that on each recipe there is a gray box with all sorts of things you can do and one is to change the number of serving. So you can change all recipes to 1 or 2 servings and have a much bigger variety of recipes in small portions. You can change the servings, then print them out and have your cooking for 1 or 2 recipe book. Have fun.[/quote:b186d72e5b]Well, duh, Audrey........Can you tell I'm getting old!!!!!I will do this. I don't know why I didn't think of this. I have used that feature several times, but for some reason, it just never came to mind.JQ :)
Buy a [color=red:5120cfa7f3]carpet cleaner[/color:5120cfa7f3]! In the middle of the night when your child is projectile vomitting, nothing else can clean it up. I always thought places like Babies RUs should have these and encourage people to register for them instead of all of the useless stuff you get with your first child.Read lots! [color=red:5120cfa7f3]Parents magazine [/color:5120cfa7f3]is a good source of information. I'd recommend it to any parent. If you stay home with your child, find or start a [color=red:5120cfa7f3]playgroup[/color:5120cfa7f3]. This is not for your child's benefit, it's for yours. Take your baby to one of those ridiculous baby classes like Gymboree (yes, I know it's wonderful, I've logged in many hours at classes like this). Their sole function is to give you a way to meet other moms. Invite them from lunch and go from there. It will save your sanity later.[color=red:5120cfa7f3]Child proof [/color:5120cfa7f3]earlier than later. Anchor large pieces of furniture to the wall. Here's a link to what I'm talking about: http://www.onestepahead.com/product/27181/205/117.htmlRead the instruction book that comes with your[color=red:5120cfa7f3] car seat [/color:5120cfa7f3]and make sure you've installed it and use it correctly![color=red:5120cfa7f3]Have fun[/color:5120cfa7f3]! You can't believe how fast it goes by![color=#444444:5120cfa7f3][/color:5120cfa7f3][color=#444444:5120cfa7f3][/color:5120cfa7f3]
