Interesting Tidbits on the Web:


Well, I normally don't post my weekly update on Tuesdays unless Monday was a holiday and I didn't have time to schedule it, but this week I took Monday off as a little bit of a mental health day (and it was much needed).  This last week was insane with prep for our annual summer party and Munchkin's 5th birthday party and company from out of state.  It was a lot of work but it was all worth it! The parties went off without too much stress or issues, everyone had lots of fun and ate a lot of really good food.  It was also awesome to have my best friend here for a few days, we got to do some sight seeing. On Monday we had a girls day complete with pedicures, comic book store, local book store, pizza for lunch and then wine and reading at the beach.

Now it is time to get back to reality, playing catch up with work and chores this week in preparation for the totally insane September we have coming up!

Hope you have had a great week and month!!


  1. I thought reading at the beach was heavenly but every thing else you did sounds wonderful too.

    1. It was a really fantastic weekend, something I haven't had in ages, the afternoon on the beach was a real treat to top it all off.

  2. Your girl's day sounds awesome! I could use one. I'm excited for review of Scythe.

    1. It was so nice to have time with a fellow reader and best friend. Oh boy, I guess I should really work on finishing it, only about 130 pages left.
