Summary

The president who left the nuclear launch codes in a suit at the dry cleaners. The novelist who put the orange juice outside and the kitten in the refrigerator. The Russian general who left home in full military dress . . . minus his pants. The famous sex goddess who blew the same line through 52 takes. And the rock star who no longer remembers 1975. Filled with classic lapses, gaffes, and mental bloopers, 1,000 Unforgettable Senior Moments is a fabulous and witty gift for anyone of a certain age. And now it is updated, revised with more than 20 percent new stories, and repackaged in two color, making it an even more vibrant, visually appealing, fresh, and compellingly readable book. Anyone who’s ever had a mental lapse will empathize with relative spring chicken Nicki Minaj, who, while accepting a BET Viewers’ Choice Award, forgot why she was receiving the statuette (on live national television, no less). Or the team of astrophysicists who believed they had discovered proof of alien life—only to discover the signals were coming from the lunchroom microwave. Here’s a best man forgetting to show up at the wedding, a musician leaving his priceless cello in a cab, the bank robber who wrote a holdup note on a paycheck stub that had his name and address printed on it, and the Fox studio chief who, when pressed by his leading lady to remember her name, offered “. . . Cleopatra?”

    Brooklyn Prescott couldn’t be happier now that she’s returned to The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence. She has her friends back, has returned to equestrian training and she’s just about to turn eighteen. If only she didn’t have that Brady complication in her life, everything would be perfect. 
    But not only is that complication still there, Brady’s become even harder to resist after Brooklyn’s time away from him; absence makes the heart grow fonder after all. Plus there’s that birthday gift he gave her that just about melted her heart. At least he’s not her coach while he’s recovering from his injury, so keeping her distance is somewhat easier. 
    That is, until a stolen kiss crushes her resolve. Then, Brooklyn’s past meets her present in a heart-stopping moment that threatens to topple her carefully constructed house of cards. Brooklyn’s half-truths all start to come back to haunt her and she realizes that part of being an adult is dealing with consequences, even when that means hearts get broken. 
    Hitting the Target is the eighth installment of The Rosewoods, an exciting Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.

    The Gratitude Journal 
    How to Keep a Gratitude Journal and Experience Great Improvement of Your Life: 10 Useful Tips 
    We say “thank you” many times a day without actually meaning it. The response has become automatic, expected even, without actually acknowledging the reasons. For American's the dedicated “Thanksgiving Day” has even now become just another holiday to eat to excess and relax without the majority really displaying any thankfulness for the bounty in their lives.  
    Do you have a warm place to sleep? Food? How about a family or friends that care for you? Rather than being thankful for just having the latest tech there are probably plenty of things in your life that you should be thankful for everyday and don't realize. A gratitude journal is a tangible way of always having a reminder about the things you are thankful for in your life. This book intends on giving you both a lesson in gratitude and the tools to create your own journal. So whenever you feel down, turn a page and remember that maybe life isn't so bad.   
    Here is what you will learn after reading this book: 
    -Why living a life of gratitude can make you happier 
    -The science of gratitude 
    -How to include gratitude in your life 
    -How to write a gratitude journal 
    -Will a journal work for me?
