Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
On the Blog, Books & Real Life:
So Stardew Valley had taken over my life…If you don’t know what that it, it’s a farming/adventure type game like Harvest moon with a pinch of Terraria and it’s addicting ….I can’t stop. I did do a bunch of blogging stuff in between it all but I am getting myself organized again after being away and I am at a good place that things should start settling done and I can get back to everyday posts and visits. The vacation really did wonders for me and once the summer is over I should be able to have more free time with us not going to the shore every weekend. I do enjoy the shore, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just a lot and since I can’t really do a lot of blogging down there it’s hard for me to keep up. So being home this weekend was a blessing and I am almost thinking we might do it again next weekend….maybe. With labor day weekend as our last trip down. I just need to get everything together before school starts.
Reading has been rather slow, besides my addiction to a farm game, I just can’t seem to find the time to read like I want. Again I am sure that will change come fall/winter when we spend most of our time inside.
I am also working on budgeting things around the house, I am sad to see our Marvel Corp boxes go but I just can’t do them anymore. I got rid of a lot of stuff (except my Uppercasebox). The kids are about to lose the two cable boxes in their rooms because 1. they don’t watch them and 2. the extra cost isn’t worth it. I plan to get them either the Apple TV for their rooms or the Roku. Since they spend most of the time watching youtube, Netflix and Hulu why spend the extra money on a cable box they don’t use. I also wanted to get rid of all our movie channels but Verizon doesn’t have a package for that and if I get rid of what we have I might lose the Hallmark channel…Um Christmas Movies!!! I can’t lose that!!! So if the boxes help with the cost then we are good. I just want to save up some money so we can, MAYBE, go to disney again next year! 🙂
