Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



GAH! What a week! I feel like I ran around like a complete nut all week long and got nothing done but looking at all my lists, clearly that running accomplished something.  I hope you enjoyed my Children's Book Week! I really came across some really fantastic books for kids of all ages and I hope you found one or two you would like as well.  I am really looking forward to getting back to my regular posting schedule this week.  I will be participating in Bout of Books readathon this week, the post will go up later today. 

In regular life, today marks a huge day in my house. As some of you who have been following me for some time know, my hubby and I work complete opposite schedules. I work a regular 9-5 and he has been working 3-11:30 pm.  Well after a lot of thought and discussion, and many attempts, Hubby made a huge move and sacrifice to change his schedule.  He isn't quite on my schedule but he his much closer, now working early mornings 2am -10:30am in a new job. While this still isn't ideal, it will make a huge difference for me and Munchkin to be able to see him every day! I cannot tell you how much of a relief this will be for me.  It will take some time to adjust to this new schedule and new routines will have to be established but I know this will all be worth it in the long run.

So that about wraps up my usual chaos! How have you been? I hope you have a great week ahead of you!


  1. I'm always impressed that you manage to post on here when you're so busy! I'm glad to hear about your hubbies work schedule change. That's great that you'll be seeing more of him!

    1. I don't always know how I manage to squeeze it all in but I use a little down time at work, especially during a busy phone spell. It is taking some getting used to but I think it will work out so much better, and while the early start is kind of a bummer, it should change and become more reasonable in the near future. So far it has really helped having him around to help out, Munchkin is so much better behaved.
