I fell super behind on my book reading.  I started a book in May that was putting me to sleep every couple of pages but I tried to power through it.  Instead I just spent two months on it and I’m not even halfway through.  That’s not like me!  I gave up and switched over

Remember how I said I was going to update this thing every week?  So far, I really suck at that.  Sorry to disappoint my two readers!  <3 you ladies! Why the delay?  In a word: exhaustion.  I am tired all the time.  But that’s because I’m working on some goals, so it’s a good thing!

Since my last post on April 30th, I got yet ANOTHER new job.  My schedule has changed 4 times in a month and a half.  And we’re still attempting to unpack, which is a slow and frustrating process.  I feel like I’m only just starting to get into a groove.  I keep waiting for things to

Another book finished!  I really hope I don’t get bored writing book reviews – there isn’t much else to write about right now  because I’ve been caught up in New House Drama.  The good news is that it’s almost over and I’ll (hopefully) be able to write a couple posts about our new living space.

I swear I will get something about Disneyland up soon.  In the meantime, I’ve finished another book: Book number three of three hundred – 1% of goal completed! – was A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.  It’s about the havoc caused in New Orleans by the antagonistic protagonist, Ignatius J. Reilly.  In his

In honor of our trip to Disneyland (which was great, by the way – post to come later), I decided that I’d read the childhood classic, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I also read the follow-up, Through the Looking Glass, but I’m counting them as one book since they’re fairly short. What a beautiful
