I really should be studying but I have just too much energy. So I've been doing everything else: taking care of the kids, cleaning the house, daydreaming . . . I'll get to studying soon. I think the kids feel the same way because I asked them to take a nap hours ago and they're still up. I give up.
This week's Weekly Geeks is about catching up. Catch up on whatever it is you need to catch up on: book reviews, TBR pile, library books . . .
So this week I will be catching up on a number of things.
At last count I was signed up for about thirty challenges. Now with school and everything else in my life, I think I will cut my challenges down to about five total for the rest of the year. I have a challenges notebook that I use so I can remember what challenge deadlines are coming up and what books to read but it still feels like a chore. So I am going to go through my notebook and my five favorite ones I will keep.
I also need to update my TBR pile. I am so tired of looking at my TBR bookcase. I need to start reading the books now and give them away. I will definitely be giving some away for Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-thon in October. If you haven't heard of this great challenge already, go on over to The Hidden Side of the Leaf and read all about it. I also need to catch up on my homework. I have a ton of classes and for the last two weeks on and off I have been sick. It's crazy having the flu and it's about 80 degrees today in California. If I haven't been the sick one then it's been one of the kids. So "catch up" will be my new name for the next week.
Wish me luck.
