Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues. Thanks for your understanding!
Did you all survive the holiday weekend? I did, but barely. I was one of those crazy stupid people that shopped on both Thursday, Friday...and let's not forget Saturday and Sunday. Yeah. Don't even go there because I know...crazy stupid! I wish I would have had this week's Muse to coax me back to bed @ 4:30 in the morning after only getting to bed @ 1 am. I would have been a much more pleasant person to live with :)
My intention was to go on Thursday to get the few things that I had to get in a store and do the rest of the shopping online...but somehow that didn't work out....at all. Then on Thursday my cell phone completely crapped out on me so I had to replace it (which I hate!). Which also meant on Saturday I had to go to the mall and stalk people to get a parking space in order to wait forever in the cell phone store, only to be given the choice of two less than stellar cell phones to replace what I had.
I use my cell phone as a necessary evil and just can bring myself to pay the $$$ for a smart phone contract. It's not the cell phone price itself that stuns me (because I could have gotten a smart phone cheaper than what I paid for the lesser phone that I ended up with)...it's what it would cost me each month to have it. I just can't do it. Do you view your cell phone bill like any other utility cost and just pay what it costs? Is the convenience really worth what you pay for it? How much do you pay? (if you don't mind my asking)
As a final thought, I've used this Muse before (back in blog baby days), but sometimes you can't have too much of a good thing, right? Do you have a favorite Muse you would like to see again? Should I have voting for favorite Muse of the year in December, or not?
This week at Seductive Musings:
- Tuesday-Thursday: will be catch up days ;) I think I have some winners to announce, some email to respond to, some reviews to post...and maybe a few other things that I didn't get done last week.
- Friday: Author Jill Shalvis will be my guest to celebrate the release of the third book in her Lucky Harbor series, Head Over Heels. Jill won a RITA award for the first book in the series, Simply Irresistible (which I happened to love love love). Her blog is also one of my favorite daily stops so I'm pretty excited that she will be here this week!
- Tempting Trailer: This week's Tempting Trailer is A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant which releases on December 27th of this year. I received a copy of this book for review via the Amazon Vine program and have to say I'm looking forward to reading it
Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors will new releases this week, especially Musings authors Larissa Ione, Jill Shalvis, Lilli Feisty, & Karen Erickson! Congrats ladies!!!
