Off the Blog:
I was doing good this week. Things were going awesome. My daughters room is a disaster but I figured I have all next week to clean it so this weekend I can just relax and get some stuff organized and finish my project that I have been working on, plus I can do a bunch of blogging. I am still a little behind on stuff but no worries….THEN THE SHIT HIT THE FAN!
Saturday morning I had a mental break and had a temper tantrum. Like a really dramatic one but I was just so annoyed i couldn’t find something and I ripped all the cabinets in the bedroom apart, drawers and shelfs. I did eventually find what I was looking for but at this point I figured I need to get all that stuff cleaned out anyway so I would just start once I got my daughter and husband off to cheerleading for a game. Apparently this was going to be one of those days that just never recovers. While I was putting my daughters hair in a pony tale I thought I saw something in her hair. I go to look and it’s a little bug. Ok so it flew in her hair no biggie….NOPE there was another one….then another and now I realized OMG I think she has LICE! I googled a lot on Saturday and yup it was LICE! Well! She was crying, I was freaking out and now the entire house had to be stripped of all bedding in all the rooms, blankets and stuffed animals. Remember I tore apart the closets, drawers and cabinets…yay! that was still all over the bed room. SO now I had to send my husband to the store to go get LICE stuff and spend 4 hours stripping her hair. I found a place that is about 20 minutes from us that does LICE removal and they are taking us today at 9:30 am. So I can get my hair treated also. Once I stripped her hair, blew dried it to kill the ick and also comb it. I put it in a braid and took a shower myself…a HOT shower. Now I have to vacuum the floor but first I need to pick up all the clothes. It was like the entire house exploded. I don’t know how I got through it without having a glass of wine or a shot of tequila. I realize I was being so dramatic today but this type of thing is not my thing, lol. This freaks me out and I can’t deal at all. I wanted to burn the house down and start over. On the plus side my melt down might has scared my son enough to clean his entire room, he even vacuumed it…he never does that. 🙂
So today I might not be around until later while myself and my daughter get our hair treated and not sure how long that will take. I was trying so hard to make this post not dramatic and it’s like the gods are just so against me getting stuff done and not going completely insane.
Blogging News and Updates:
I am behind…obviously but I did do a bunch of posts on Friday so I hope to get some more done this week. Next weekend I have a few things to do around the house on the weekend but Friday I plan to blog all day again while the kids are at school. I am hoping that next weeks update will be a short and happy one! 🙂
Bloggiesta starts this week and I will be doing one Twitter party with them. Not sure the date year and the sign up post isn’t up. I am going to try and spend a day working on blog stuff during Bloggiesta but a change in plans gives me limited time. September 21st to 24th. Want to help? Sign Up HERE
I plan to do Can you read a series in a Month? again. I might have sign ups for that up soon, I am thinking of doing it for November…maybe.
Blog Ahead starts on October 1st. I plan to join that also this year so I can get as ahead as possible. With Berls it’s easier to fill up space but it also helps with doing some fun original stuff that I haven’t been able to do in a while because I was blogging alone. So If you are interested you can sign up for Blog Ahead HERE

Bookish News and What I grabbed
I didn’t grab anything this week, Warcross by Marie Lu came out but I want to wait to grab that when There’s Someone inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins comes out. I figured I would purchase them together. I also want to get An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson I believe that comes out on September 26th the same as Stephanie Perkins books so I need to save some money. So I was a good girl and stayed out of trouble 🙂 I probably wont next week but you never know!
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
