Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Another great reading week, I feel like I am getting somewhere with my challenges finally.  Though because I have been reading so much and not paying attention, I have gotten a little behind in my art and post scheduling. I normally keep 15-20 posts scheduled and I am now down to 7, I guess it is time to buckle down and schedule things ahead again. Especially since the next month is going to get a little crazy, 2 Bridal Showers, 1 Bachelorette party, 3 weddings, Munchkin's 3rd Birthday, our annual Summer Party and a ton of house work that needs to be done before winter hits again. Ugh, I hate looking at my calendar any more!

I guess it is time to buckle down and get caught up (and hopefully a little ahead of schedule). I probably won't be getting much reading done this next week as I play catch up, and I have a little feeling that looking at that schedule that lull might end up stretching out over the next month and a half.



  1. Wow! That's a lot of stuff coming up. Most my craziness is over but I just can't get out of my reading/blogging slump. :(

    1. I am so tired of these busy schedules, I really just want to relax on weekends and do fun things with the family. Hopefully this will be the last busy wedding year, we have had at least 3 each year for the past 5 years.

      Maybe try reading an old favorite you haven't read in a long time. Or if I am in a slump I reorganize my bookshelves and discover a book that looks really interesting again.

  2. I still don't get how you can read that much with all that stuff going on! You are crazy amazing!

    1. Neither do I in all honesty and I know I don't retain as much of my reading as I would like, only occasionally do books or characters stand out in my memory.
