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.

Books on my nightstand
I had planned to do a readathon this weekend, but that didn't pan out, because I spent most of my time with friends. But I am in the middle of three books right now.

Crazy by Han Nolan: This book is making for interesting reading. The boy protagonist has a bunch of virtual friends, who do actual communications with him. At some point, it isn't hard to believe they exist and become lost in that world. Didn't we all have imaginary friends at some point in our lives?
The Passage by Justin Cronin: This one sure is going exciting. I am not too far into the book, but I have a feeling that I will like this one!
Blankets by Craig Thompson: I surely have to exclaim WOW here! I was initially pensive about reading this one, knowing that it is serious. But one minute into the book, and I couldn't put it down. It was engaging! It IS engaging!

The Passage was amazing, but very long. I actually had to red it in bites. Enjoy!
The Passage and Still Missing are on my wish list!


Have a great reading week ahead!

I'm anxious to read The Passage.
I am in part 3 of the audio of The Passage and I am finally starting to put it all together. Glad to hear you are enjoying it too.
