Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Wow! I can't believe I got so much done last week! I got caught up and a little ahead on my blog posts. I got caught up in the office. I got a ton of reading done. I got the house cleaned up for my parent's visit (which they are here all this week so at least Munchkin will be happy and we will all be well fed). But on the other side of the coin, holy cow this month is flying by! I am suddenly feeling frantic that the holidays are coming (normally I have at least gotten half of my Christmas shopping done but I have barely started this year).

We have the Dewey's Readathon coming up and I have to decide if I am going to do that, though it is the weekend after my whole week away so I know hubby isn't going to give me Munchkin free time and it is also the same day as the Rhode Island Children's Book Festival. I also have the Blog-ahead challenge coming up (and it is so needed) so I need to make sure I have plenty of books read in order to get some posts scheduled for the Advent Reads event. GAH! Thank goodness I have my new planner that has so much more space in it and is so pretty that I love playing with it!


  1. Wow, I don't even start Christmas shopping till December. It is coming fast though, isn't it? Crazy! I hope you get too participate in the read-a- thon. I'm really looking forward to it.

    1. I would love to be able to shop closer to Christmas and really feel the spirit of the holiday but I do a lot of shopping online and I always worry about shipping being delayed. I also dread taking Munchkin out in the stores, especially now that he wants to walk everywhere! I have decided to participate in the read-a-thon but it will be different than years past because Munchkin will be home & Hubby will be in and out all day.
