Look at that! I updated my 2013 reading list! Whohoooo! According to GoodReads I'm still 9 books behind for my 2013 reading challenge of reading 50 books this year (I've done 24 so far....) but whohooo! That's way more than in the past. I think working in a library works. It either works, or makes it WAY HARDER for me to stick with one book until I'm finished. Occupational hazard - I bring home waaaaaaay more books than I could possibly ever finish.

I'm okay with that. :)

(Maybe I'll update my movies/tv shows tomorrow. Who knows?! It IS a holiday weekend after all...and we all know how nerdy I am!) 

Hey! Look! A blog post!

Greetings! I cannot believe I have not posted here since February. What the heck. My life feels very much like it is not my own mostly. No time for things like blogging. Barely any time to pick up the toys or fold the laundry (I have baskets of clean clothes everywhere. Seriously. Laundry. Ugh). The only way I'm blogging right now is that I brought my new (old) laptop outside so I can watch the kids & sort of interact with them, while posting some things on FB to sell, uploading pics to ShutteryFly (so I can avoid another photo-losing-disaster like earlier this summer)  and BLOGGING How fun!.

So...I would like to make time for myself to do this. I feel like this is a good time of year for me. I've always been a school nerd, so fall means NEW to me. A fresh new start. Maybe weird considering it's the eve of the 9th month of the year, but so what. It's always felt that way to me. New. Fresh. Lovely.  I feel like I'm missing out on so many of the memories of my kids - I used to write them here - mostly for myself as I have never had a huge readership (just good friends). I have so many things that I want to capture - photos, thoughts, musings, ideas...I used to do this every day - so maybe now I can set a goal of once a week.

Leave me comments, send me some encouragement, I'll read yours if you read mine. I miss my online blogger community & hopefully we can recapture some of that. Who's with me?!
