Chicago, more renovation, and Squid Game | Weekly Snapshot

I think I can say that Fall is finally here. Or at least the crisp Fall air is finally here. The colors not so much. We still haven't gotten around to any Fall activities, and at this point, I'm not sure when or if we'll do them.  Renovation updates We are almost at the halfway point into our ground floor renovation. The flooring is almost done, cabinets are ready to be setup, appliances are here. It's exciting to be on the other side of the renovation when things are getting finished. There's still easily 2.5 weeks worth of work left in the kitchen, and another 2-2.5 weeks for the master bathroom, so mid-November is likely when we are done with the renovation. Assuming no delays.  Flooring coming along All of us are pretty exhausted at this point.

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! :)
