There's been a lot going on over here this past week, both at work and at home. I'm looking forward to when I can read a lot in a sitting. Life I've been pretty distressed by all the gun violence news this week. Not that it has ever not been so distressing, but coming out of the pandemic and pretty much hearing about some shooting or the other almost every day, has just shown that nothing has changed in this world. Adam Toledo and Indianapolis this week. And apparently, there is still no way this can be controlled. Ugh, so frustrated.  When I wasn't worrying about the news (or trying not to), I've been busy picking paint colors. The husband and I have been talking about painting our house, or just the upstairs, or just the downstairs, or the basement, or.. for the better part of the past four years. We finally decided to go ahead with it - that is, paint the entire house. It's a massive undertaking, especially considering the painter is going to be here tomorrow

Let the show begin!

After starting grad school in 2008, I got into my biggest reading rut ever lasting a whole year. Part of it has to do with not finding time to read amidst the heavy graduate work load. But the major reason is due to not feeling a desire to read a book during the few free minutes I get each day, but rather to just catch up with lost sleep. Finally having caught up with my reading, I hope to up my read count for the next year. 144 is my target, but anything above 50 would be welcome! And with all the reading I hope to do, there's always a bunch of challenges to immerse myself in. Much as I tell myself not to jump into every challenge I hear of, but well, how do you resist?

So over the next few days, I'll be posting the list of challenges I want to throw my hat in. I do have a couple of books that I plan to finish before the end of this month, but most of my focus will be on setting up my lists for the challenges next year! Whooo! Isn't that the best part of reading challenges? Setting up the lists! :)
