Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Wow! What a week! Some how I managed to pull off one of my busiest weeks ever at work, getting the house ready and plans done for 2 parties, Bout of Books Readathon, company from out of town and fantasy football draft!! I have no idea how but everything came together better than I ever expected! I did reward myself with a little shopping spree, Audible was having an incredible sale, 20% off credits, plus then a huge sale where I picked up 9 audio books for $24!

Today my little Munchkin turns 4 and it is also his first day of Pre-K, my how the time flew! I am going to have a couple of posts later this week about his awesome birthday party, I think everyone had a great time!

No I am going to clean up from the parties today after work and then the rest of the week will be spent with my books and writing pen pals, I think I earned a little break!

Hope you have a great week!


  1. Wow. You have been busy! You deserve that break. Enjoy!

    1. Haha, I do deserve a break but starting this weekend we are beginning a large landscaping project and new driveway. Hopefully we can get it all done before winter hits!
