Blog News – A Fresh Start
Wow, what a week y’all! Those of you who saw Michelle’s announcement on Monday or mine on Sunday know that this week Michelle and I joined forces and became co-bloggers. Who am I kidding? She adopted me because we both weren’t ready for me to leave, but we also both knew my blog was over. I’m so grateful to Michelle for taking me in, I’m already feeling more excitement for blogging than I’ve felt in months.
Of course, it’s bittersweet. It was sad saying goodbye to my blog, which has been such a great home for 4 years. But it’s still there if I ever decide I went to fly solo again. For the time being, though, this feels like the right decision for both of us.
Now that this is my home, Michelle has generously allowed me a place to do a Sunday post still, since it was one of the highlights of my week back at Fantasy is More Fun. So that the blog doesn’t get too overwhelmed, though, look for me Saturday evenings instead of Sunday Mornings, when Michelle will be posting her Sunday Post and Week-in-Review.
News at Home
It would be impossible to catch y’all up on the MONTH’S of activity and news at home. Let me give you a couple highlights though!
The school year ended on a really high note with a fabulous kinder graduation and I’m so proud of my kiddos! I’ve been working pretty much all summer – organizing, planning for next year, printing, laminating and cutting out center supplies, etc. It’s never ending, but I feel really good about it and where it should leave me for the school year.
I got hit with a slight blow in May – turns out, I’m allergic to the effing sun! Ya’ll seriously? I LOVE the sun! But I get serious rash now when exposed to it, so I’m constantly covering up and avoiding the sun a bit.
Which did complicate our family vacation at the end of June/beginning of July to Galveston beach just a little bit. Ended up being an amazing time though and – who knew? They make SPF clothing! So I had spf swimwear and, though I had to restrict my time, I still had a blast.
Not much going on here except that I’m totally sucking at all aspects :/

Next Week From Me
Mainly you’ll see me on Monday’s for reviews and Saturdays for the Sunday post. But on week’s like next week where Michelle doesn’t have much and I do, you’ll see me a bit more. I do have months of not blogging to make up for, after all 😉 As you’ll see- some of these reviews are WAY past due and since I have them written, I’m going to share them this week!

Sunday Post with Berls
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Since I don’t really have a special place for this anymore, I thought I’d include it in my Sunday Posts. Just a quick look at what I’m currently reading.
Since I was feeling a bit down I decided it was time for a re-read of Harry Potter. I’m listening to the British Version and I’m currently on The Goblet of Fire. Loving them again!
I’m reading a book I’ve been reading for a very long time now… The Glass Sword. It’s good – the sequel to Red Queen, which I loved and devoured.
The reason it’s taking a while is that at night, I keep getting busy with reading school books. Right now I’m reading Teaching with Love and Logic. I’ve read snippets in the past, but I wanted to do a thorough book study this summer. So far, loving it!
Kind of on the back burner, but still being read I also am reading Tools for Teaching and F*ck Club. No one ever said I don’t have a varied taste, huh?
