First off, don't forget to stop in on the giveaway for Phillipa Ashley's book Miranda's Mount and the Downton Abbey 2013 calendar. This giveaway runs through Friday, 11/16 so stop in and check it out! This was a fun escape read, so I hope you check it out.
On the crazier side of life, I'm not sure when I'm going to learn that it is all a combination of good and bad. I've just been so incredibly burned out this year that it sometimes really frustrates me. This burn out so early in the school year might be evidence to me that I have to slow down and stop taking on projects, classes, grants, summer school, etc. We all need a little extra money, but my peace of mind and sanity might be more important at this point.
Having said that, I can't wait for Thanksgiving and am counting down the days! I'm excited for five days of family and relaxation. I mentioned on Twitter that my mom and I might do a 5K on Thanksgiving morning, but I still haven't signed us up yet. (What's up with that?) This could be a problem. Let's hope I can make the decision and just do it! Besides, it's for a great cause--the local food bank--and it will burn off some calories before the big meal, right? Please talk me into it!!!
Anyway, enough of my craziness. Had I posted on Sunday, I could be back to the business of review writing. As it stands, I now have a stack of quizzes to grade for my AP class and a bed screaming my name. Below are the stack of lovelies I picked up from the library today. Thanksgiving can't come soon enough so I can dive into some of these.
Happy midweek to you. What are you up to, or what are you excited to start reading?
