Just a quick check-in, folks. Time is in short supply around here, as we’re down to under a week to go until moving day! I made a lot of progress on packing this weekend – and I owe a huge shoutout to my fabulous friend Zan, who spent her entire Saturday kid-wrangling, organizing, and packing with me. Seriously, I don’t know how I would have made it through the weekend without her. By this time next week, we’ll be in our townhouse and hopefully settling in a bit. It’s a temporary move – the townhouse is a stopgap, and hopefully a short-term one, until we find something permanent that works for our family – and I’m trying to make the best of it.
What with everything that I’ve got going on, I didn’t get much reading done this weekend. Last week I predicted a graphic novel-y week, and that’s exactly what this was. I finished the first volume of Saga (I’m currently midway through the second), the fifth volume of Fables, and the complete Boxers & Saints. Enjoyed them all, but I’m definitely deepest in the Fabletown world. I’m trying to keep a lid on the library stack, and I’ve been whittling it down by never checking out more books than I’m returning on any given trip. But I’ve got a pretty big stack of comics out right now, even as I’m religiously adhering to that rule. So expect more comics – specifically, more Saga – this week. As busy as I am, comics are holding my attention at the moment, and they’re short enough that I can rip through a few in a week – key to feeling like I’m still getting some reading done even in moving week.
Up on the blog this week: it might be moving week, but I have some really good content for you – recapping our November hike (it’s a GREAT one!) on Wednesday, and the first post in a new yearlong blog project on Friday. I promise you don’t want to miss either post, so check back.
