Blogging, Bookish and Real Life News:
So not this week but last week didn’t go as planned, like seriously crazy busy, I was going to have an update on Sunday but my sons room took a lot longer than I anticipated. I got up bright and early on Friday and started but it still took me 3 days to paint the room and put everything back in. Plus we had to go through everything before putting it back. It came out awesome and he loves it but I was about ready to sleep for weeks but I couldn’t I still had to do my daughter’s room.
This week was even worse. My daughters Cheer Competition was Saturday, so they had practice this week plus we were getting our first snow, just a coating to about an inch..No big deal. Thursday came and the temp dropped lower than anticipated and the snow came. It came so bad that we got about 6.5 inches and the Top half of NJ and NY just completely fell apart. Like in 44 years I have never seen traffic this bad. It took my husband 6 hours to get home. He works an hour away. Kids were stuck on School buses for 3 hours trying to get through TOWN. Not a few towns, like in the town. One local School the buses couldn’t even get the kids and they had to stay at the school. The GW Bridge closed, the Parkway was closed. People were in traffic for 12 hours. It was a MESS! It was like it never snowed here before. Regardless of not realizing how bad it was supposed to be, you would think after all these year you plan for both scenario just in case something went wrong. Isn’t that what the government is supposed to do, plan for both, best and worse case? The Governor of NJ is blaming the weather people, plus those on the road and not the fact that they F’d up completely. There was 441 accidents! Like really. The next day I just kept the kids home since it was still a mess and cleaned my daughters room. That was a nightmare too. Why do kids cut up tiny pieces of paper and keep all of them?!?!? Why??!?! She has little shitty things in her draws and just crap all over. I have never been so happy to say this house is DONE, I can sleep until New Years!
My daughters competition was fantastic! She did so good and I am so proud of her. She was even proud of herself and she is very hard on herself so this just made me even happier. I am hoping they do more of these next year but I also heard we might do one more before the end of the year.

What you might see this week:
I am hoping to get some posts done today, so I should have something, just not 100% sure what. 🙂
(Read, Currently Reading & Next)
I wanted to like A Holiday by Gaslight, that cover is just amazing but the inside just wasn’t working for me. I didn’t like characters and the story just wasn’t making sense and rather boring for me. I was very sad. Starry Eyes is rather cute and Allison is my second time reading and I still loved it. I can’t wait to read book 2.
What I grabbed
My daughter was off election week and took a trip to B&N. She bought me a book and I love that kid! 🙂
I thought I would also get my owlcrate this weekend but only the Jr. came so I will have that book and my uppercase book next week. These two look so cute and Sanity & Tallulah is a graphic novel. My daughter was so excited.
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
