It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 25, 2016)


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.

What are you reading today?

  1. I like feeling useful! It’s actually why I’ve stopped volunteering at certain places over the years; I felt like my time was being wasted and I wasn’t making any difference. Being at your house and feeling like I was doing something worthwhile for my sweet friend…it was great.

    I know this week must be crazy for you! I’m looking forward to hearing how it went once it’s over. Good luck!

    • You are the BEST! Seriously, thank you SO much for all of your help this weekend. It made a huge difference – more than I can ever communicate! The move has gone about as well as could be expected and now we are living in a sea of partially-unpacked boxes (again). I’m torn between wanting to unpack and settle in and wondering if I should even bother, since I am hoping we won’t be in this place very long. We will have to have lunch when things settle down – I’m buying! – and I can tell you about it (not that there’s much to tell).
