The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
The last two months I’ve really tried to participate in read a thons, to no avail. This week isn’t much difference! I have so many great books on my list and I just can’t seem to get to them.
School has been seriously kicking my behind. I thought I would love philosophy but being that my theory is ridiculous is harsh! My instructor is kind but HARSH!!! The good thing is that I’m learning a lot. The bad thing is that all my reading has been for philosophy and philosophy only! Another two weeks and then I’m back in Algebra. Funny thing though, I am looking forward to the Algebra… I feel like a pod person! Someone kill me before I start screaming and pointing out humans to eat.
I HAVE been able to start my Christmas shopping. Seriously, thank you for the Internet!! I am in LOVE with internet shopping! I have my plan for the next few weeks and decided on approx $35 per person. That keeps me to a nice limit which I think allows me to have fun but not go overboard. I’m one of those that will pile you up with Christmas gifts if I can. Sadly my budget says I cannot. So cruel!! But seriously, I’ve already bought and sent all four of my nieces and nephew their gifts!!! Next week I’m going to start my Christmas cards! <3 <3 <3 <3!!
The hubby was super sweet yesterday and even turned on Christmas music for me! I know it seems a little early but we have a Pandora station that plays Manheim and even Harry Potter! It’s really eclectic and fun and just fabulous to wake up to. Now if I could get to reading while I listen!
Update for the Blog Ahead! I’ve been doing so great! Again, the hubby was wonderful and allowed me an entire day to sit and blog! An entire day!!! I am currently at 92 scheduled posts and I started at 39! If I can keep up the momentum I may shoot for 150 but with school and Christmas I’m thinking keeping it at 100 at the end of November will be a great goal. And doable. But that 150 number looks so damn pretty!! I have all my Zen Wednesdays and Cat Thursdays done through February and started a new thing with Disney posts. That is a lot of fun but takes a lot more time. I also started a Christmas list of 25 days of Christmas which includes movies, christmas fun, and random stuff like recipes! I only have 2 of those done so that should be my top priority!
My big thing with Christmas is the tree. I love the smell but I’m actually thinking about getting a fake tree. The price is definitely worth the fake but I love, love, love the smell of the tree just not the mess. I don’t put up my tree until the day after Thanksgiving so I have time to consider my options. What do you guys do?
I hope you gals are having a fabulous November and staying warm! I just bought an electric blanket and I drag that thing everywhere! 😀
Have you shopped internet deals yet? Are you waiting for the big deals or getting them when you see them? They are shiny!!!
