Some 'firsts' in this new-normal world | Weekly Snapshot

I almost didn't make it here today! It's been an insanely busy week that's going to continue into today. Life This week has been a combination of busy at work and busy at home. The kids did not have school on Monday, which is also typically my busiest day at work. So when Monday ended, I felt as if I sucked at both life and work. The rest of the week was better - at least I was able to keep work and life separate.  This weekend just happens to be one of those when I have so much to do - thanks to the many tasks and chores deferred from previous days/weekends. We were getting quotes for some home improvement projects, had to start prepping rooms for my parents' arrival next month (mainly because I still haven't moved my daughter's online school materials out of the room from the Fall school year), and do lots of seasonal shopping.

Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge (2010)



Now this is a challenge that I can easily do. Most of the books I read are borrowed from the library. Funnily though, I am also planning to clear off my shelves next year. So it's going to be interesting to see how the two compete with each other.

This challenge is hosted by J. Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog.

Challenge Guidelines:
1. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count.
2. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.
3. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
4. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

There are 4 levels to sign-up at, and I am going for the Just My Size level, and read 50 library books, though I hope to read up to 75 books from the library.

If you read a lot of books from the library, like I do, or would like to read more from the library, sign-up here.

My final tally:


37 / 50 books. 74% done!
