It's Monday and I have a 10-year-old!

Hi everybody! How are your holiday preparations going? Are you checking things off your list? Are your evenings spent in a sea of wrapping paper?

This week, we put Christmas prep on hold for a bit because my favorite 4th grader had a birthday! As I mentioned last week, we started with a day at the aquarium. Then I took D and two of his friends to see the movie Wonder and get some ice cream. This weekend, we had the family here for a birthday party complete with a taco bar and Pokemon decorations.

Now I have to get back into that Christmas to-do-list. I'm making progress but I still have presents to buy and wrap, music to rehearse for church, and cookies to bake!

So I never really got into World's Fair, so I put it aside. Actually, I put it in the pile to donate to my local library; I'm trying to send books out instead of putting them back on my shelf in hopes of them working better another time. Instead I read Sing, Unburied, Sing and now I'm reading Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert's Roadmap to Getting Out There.

What are you reading this week?


  1. Sounds like a fun birthday celebration. I'm still in the "Throwing it back onto the shelf" stage when a book doesn't grab me. I really have to try your system. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. Happy Birthday to your son!! We just celebrated my nephew's tenth this weekend too!

    Hiding in the Bathroom sounds so good!

  3. What did you think of Sing, Unburied, Sing? On an intellectual level I really liked it, yet I never quite want to recommend it to others.
