morning everyone…. I know it is almost 9 p.m. and I’m just getting around to posting my weekly check in post. Essentially it has simply been a busy day. I meant to do this first thing this morning but when I went out to feed the birds I noticed there was no wind and we needed to burn trash in the worst way so I did that one chore quickly which lead to another and another and before you know it I’ve cut my husband’s hair, done dishes, a load of laundry and fired up the lawn mower for the first cutting of the year and the blog post is pushed back to after my evening meeting. Still the day is not over yet and I will get a check-in post this week!
Not a lot of reading this weekend, we went to a city-wide garage sale and bird swap on Saturday and I had yet another meeting on Sunday that ended with a quick trip to Aldi’s and hours spent roaming Wal-Mart’s cosmetic’s department as I realized I know nothing about makeup. I’m serious I spent so much time there completely overwhelmed as I tried to figure out what basic makeup I needed to pull together a professional look for BEA. I did get some items but after playing with them this weekend I realize there is some other items I need yet. I don’t wear makeup in my normal life but thought it might be nice to wear for the conference where I’m going to represent the blog. If you know of any good online tutorials, a makeup for middle-aged makeup dummies please share in the comments.
Beyond that not a lot going on besides meetings and more meetings. I’m struggling with the All Iowa Reads for work again. I won’t be reviewing the book here after the drama from last year’s author, but I still need to read it. I must say that author has kind of ruined the whole program for me as I so want to DNF this year’s book. I’m not going to review it, I’m not liking it, I simply don’t want to waste time reading it. Maybe I can suffer through a few more pages and just talk about how it didn’t work for me at the book talk. Such a bad attitude, but I really don’t want to read it. I’m not going to get to count it toward my reading goals or review it on the blog so it just feels like a total waste of time that could be used reading something I actually want to read…
Well that’s about it. I’m sorry today’s post is so late, but life happens sometimes. Have a great week reading and see you tomorrow for Top Ten Tuesday!
