Let it Snow!

Posted by Rebecca M Avery on January 6, 2015 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I know it's been a while since I posted a new way to annoy your teenager so I thought I'd toss this out there.  Now this can be done with other things too... like raking leaves etc... however, snow is always best.

Do whatever it takes to convince your teenager to shovel the driveway clean of snow.  As soon as he/she is almost done with the task... go outside and clean off the cars and then ask "Are you going to shovel that too?  The deal was to shovel all the snow and tha...

Light My Fire - Kristina Knight (5 Stars)

Posted by Rebecca M Avery on July 26, 2014 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I’ll admit I’m a checkout line tabloid creeper. I see all these stories about how the other half lives and the supposed crazy things they are up to now… and I’m suckered in. So why should a book be any different? Especially when the two main characters have a history as just friends with a secret desire for something more. I loved that the author didn’t get so bogged down in details regarding the glitz and glitter of stardom that she lost the characters along...

All I Have - Nicole Helm (5 Stars)

Posted by Rebecca M Avery on July 26, 2014 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

To say I am a sucker for a blue collar man, is putting it mildly. However, I’d never thought about that in terms of a farmer. However, I may start slowing down when I pass tractors from now on and stopping at EVERY farmer’s market I pass… That Dell… whew! In Mia I may have found a kindred spirit as I too often blurt out things I’d really rather I hadn’t divulged.

Likes – I liked that the competition between them was more out of necessity than...

The Last First Date - Maggie Wells (5 Stars)

Posted by Rebecca M Avery on July 26, 2014 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

This is an extremely well written erotic novella. I’ll say it again… This is an extremely well written erotic novella. I like a little ‘spice’ in a romance story but not if I can’t connect to the characters. I’ll pass on reading a book with zero character development but lots of sex. It’s not exactly ‘steamy’ if you don’t care about the characters as individuals. Unfortunately I see this more often than I care to admit in some e...

Two Secrets and a Mask - Thomas J Williams (5 Stars)

Posted by Rebecca M Avery on July 26, 2014 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)

This was a well written story. I enjoyed the characters and I love that the author touched on a subject that is unfortunately still considered taboo. Greg figuring out that he's in love with Jordan even though the very idea is repulsive to him, only to discover that a heart wants what it wants, was beautifully done in this short story. Looking for more from this author!

So the boy is in the kitchen fixing himself second supper consisting of a box of macaroni and cheese (the family size) because at 16 years old, 5 million calories a day is apparently STILL not enough.

 

After cooking the noodles he proceeds to try and open the fake cheese packet which essentially explodes, dusting the kitchen counter, the floor and his arms in orange powder.

 

Not one to be discouraged he sarcastically mutters "genius packaging there numb ...

Driving Lessons

Posted by Rebecca M Avery on May 23, 2014 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Wake your teenager up on a Saturday morning... early.  Like maybe around 7AM or so.  Tell them that if they want to get their driving in for the day it will have to happen now or not at all.  After they get up, shower, dress and eat and finally make it to the car, wait until you're out of the drive way and headed away from your house.  Then announce, "We might as well hit up Walmart while we're out."

This is kind of a silent way of getting paid for the bad driving yo...
