Looking Forward To...

**Today is the last day to enter my giveaway to win an ARC of TEMPEST by Julie Cross. Contest ends tonight (Dec. 29) at 11:59 EST. Click here to enter.**

So it's here. The last week of 2011. A lot of people use this time to reflect on what they've done over the past year. Some are already looking forward to what the new year will bring. Making resolutions, planning what they'll do differently in the new year. I'm not doing that yet. I'm trying to focus on my family. Spending time with the kids. Trying to make sure they don't kill each other. Packing the Christmas decorations. Keeping the house sort of clean-ish. Stuff like that.

But there are a few things I am looking forward to, though. Things like this:

I can't tell you how long I've waited for this movie to come out. I mean, it has Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Yep, that's enough of a reason to watch;)

And I'm looking forward to these January book releases:

*I've already read an eGalley of this and I'm really looking forward to reading it again*

One more thing I look forward to each day now:

Y'all, I never played Angry Birds until this past week and I'm hooked. My kids think it's funny. Hehe, look at Mom playing a game. My hubs thinks I've lost it. I don't care. I. LIKE. IT.

So, are there any things you're looking forward to? 


  1. LOL, I just discovered Angry Birds, too, but I am not going to play it because I get so addicted to such things! It took long enough to wean myself off spider solitaire...;)

  2. Faith - Good idea. I've been playing it for about a week and it's so hard to stop once you get started. I keep telling myself "just one more round and I'll quit" and then I end up playing another half hour or so:)

  3. Sherlock Holmes was great, and thanks for your advice on books.

  4. Patti - I still haven't seen Sherlock Holmes. Glad to know it's good:) Hopefully I can get my hubs to take me this weekend.
