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 & Real Life:
This week was a little crazy, didn’t accomplish anything but had a lot to do. I know, I don’t get it either.
Hamster Update: So they are doing good and I think they are enjoying their new homes. Julia’s hamster Biscuit is adjusting very well. She lets us pet her and she comes to the side of the cage when Julia is there. I tried picking her up but she got very nervous and jumped back into the cage but of course not before peeing on my hand…Thanks Biscuit! Ryan’s hamster Gumball is a little more nervous, I am a little worried that it will take a lot longer to really tame him since he tends to run back into his house after being out for a little bit and only comes out at night. We have been able to pet him however and he doesn’t seem bothered by it, he spends a lot of time chewing on the bars so I might have to get him a few more things for his cage because he might be bored. He has not peed on me…yet. Saturday we cleaned them out for the first time, Dexter now realizes we have hamsters. The hamsters were pretty good and went right into the balls, the kids enjoyed watching them and the dog enjoyed chasing them around. We might need a little more time before we can pick them up but I am really in no rush, as long as I know they enjoy the ball we can at least let them out often to run around in those.
Julia had her first softball game today, it was cute to watch them but my daughter has her head in the clouds. She did hit two balls and made a pretty good catch, we just need to remind her to run after she hits and throw after she catches the ball. I think she had a great day but I also think she was very tired because they had opening ceremony for all the teams in the town and she had to get up early.
Next Saturday is the Dewey 24 hour Read-a-thon, I plan to get a lot of stuff read…I hope. I do have to break for 3 hours to go to Julia’s game but I can always read while I am there. It’s taken me a while to read my current book but I am almost done, when I finish I will read a quick book and then get back into Anna Dressed in Blood since that will be my first book for the read-a-thon unless I finish it before Saturday.
We are getting closer to BEA and I am getting so excited. Plan to see a baseball game while we are there and my husband is actually excited about it. I am planning a BEA Post in the next few weeks which is going to get me even more excited 🙂
