Renovation Updates | Weekly Snapshot

Gah, October? Where did the year go? I'm suddenly realizing we are entering the busiest season of the year and there's going to be tons to do for the next three months. It is unseasonably warmer right now, which makes it harder to believe that it's October. The colors have started changing but it's almost like the trees don't care and aren't even trying to put up a show.  Renovation updates At this point, we have completed two weeks in our house while under renovation. Yes, it's every bit as irritating, annoying, frustrating, dusty, and allergy-triggering as they say a renovation can be. But it's also oddly fascinating seeing your house ripped down to the subfloor and peeking inside walls at the things that are typically hidden inside one. It was also satisfying seeing progress made - there's a wall one day, no wall the next day, and then all openings patched up the third day. This coming week is going to see the most progress - the hardwood flooring

Books on my nightstand

The Passage by Justin Cronin: Ever so slowly, I am moving through this book. I wish I could finish this sooner, but reading the same book for so long makes me miserable.
Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser: The first Lumby book, Lumby Lines, was a really easy and cozy read that I enjoyed more than I expected to. After a long time, I picked up the second Lumby book, Stealing Lumby, and this book has the same effect on me!
The Game On! Diet by Krista Vernoff and Az Ferguson: Technically, I should be done with this book by now, since I'm doing this game this month. But I still have a couple of the less important chapters to go.

I get frustrated when a book takes so long to finish too so I totally understand. You need to get the audio version to listen to in your car!

I haven't started on some of my chunksters because I have so much catching up to do and if I get bogged down in a humungous book I won't accomplish anything LOL

The Passage is supposed to be worth the time though :-)
Have a great week and happy reading!

I'm looking forward to The Passage but I understand getting behind on everything else during a big book.
I thought about picking up The Passage, but then I saw how long it was!
I listened to The Passage on audio and survived! Dont give up :)
