    Glad you're back! Well, I'm glad they didn't kill you! Did everything go well?

    Things with me are good, thanks. I'm back at school, and classes started yesterday. I can't decide whether or not I should work while I'm in school though. I'd like to have something to get me out of the house but I hate my job haha. Other than that, nothing much is new.

    Oh my goodness Jo! I never knew your birthday passed!! A very happy belated to you!!

    Yes, I have seen the new HP film. I liked it, but I was upset that they made all the "romance" scenes so very corny. Other than that I thought it was well done. Wow three hours is a lot of Twilight discussion! Any new topics that we haven't covered here?

    Things are good with me. I'm finding my job extremely stressful and I'm working more than full time hours over six days a week so it's a little overwhelming. I can't wait to get back to school in a couple weeks. How are things with you?

Where have I been and what the hell have I been doing?

by Joreads on 12-03-2012 at 01:00 AM
I recently came back to the forum and I was horrified to realize it had been nearly two years since I had been here. What on earth had I been doing with my time a thought that has been increasingly bothering me?

Well in my defense in December 2011 I graduated uni after seven long years, working fulltime and studying part time was not always easy . 2012 is a different story there is no in “ my defence “ answer other than, it took me about four months to get use to the fact that I

Why are we all so time poor

by Joreads on 03-25-2009 at 01:08 AM
I caught up with some of my girl friends a few weekends ago and the one thing we all had in common was the phrase “I am so busy” It got me wondering why it is that we are all so time poor these days. We have more time saving devices than I am sure my grandmother would ever have dreamed of, dishwashers, microwaves, washing machines and I could go on and yet I would hazard a guess that we are the generation that will be judged as the most time poor in history.

Is that as women we

Well we into our second month and I am loving it. We meet on the second Friday of the month at someone’s house we watch a movie and then discuss it. Oh of course there is great food and wine as well.

A sad sad day

by Joreads on 02-08-2009 at 01:43 AM
It has just been announced on the news that 38 people have lost their lives in the bush fires that are ablaze in NSW and Victoria at the moment, and 100 famlies are now without homes. It is so bad that the Prime Minster has just mobilized the army to help fight the fires and give fire fighters a much need rest.

My family and I are safe and far away from the fires but that was not the case three years ago and watching the fires in the TV today I could taste the fear again. So I

Its my kind of club

by Joreads on 01-28-2009 at 07:37 PM
Last night was the first meeting for 2009 for my book club. We are a ten women strong and range in age from 37 to 78. Each month we read a book and get together to discuss it. It never ceases to amaze me that even though we have all read the same book we all take something different away from them.
There are some strong voices among us and the debate can get quite lively but once the jug has been boiled and the coffee, tea and cake served the laughing returns to the group. We come in
