Friday night I was super stoked to get a jump on #24in48 and I thought of some random #Bloggiesta tasks I could do. I was high on a steroid shot from earlier in the day for a sinus infection, so I sat up reorganizing my Feedly into easy-to-read folder-chunks, and I commented on lots of blogs. I even sat down and read about 100 pages of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Meanwhile, hubs made great and daring progress putting together our new entertainment center and the new flat screen TV. We have officially joined the 21st century with a non-tube TV. We still don't have satellite (with no current plans to get it), but it's a significant upgrade nonetheless.
Saturday dawned early. I was again motivated to get on with my reading. I left the hubs in bed, grabbed my coffee, and proceeded to throw myself into Y: The Last Man Deluxe Book 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. And that's where things kinda tanked.
While I was really loving Y, we had stuff to do. Hubs loaded up a recliner to take to the landfill...it was seriously beyond salvaging. While he was gone I cleaned up the masses of clutter that had piled up over the last week, swept and vacuumed, and ate lunch while watching The Wedding Date on the new TV. When David got back, my mom came over for a visit and we moved the old furniture out into the garage for a charity pick-up next weekend. So then I had to vacuum again. Insert shower, more clutter clearing, and a quick trip to Marshall's for throw pillows and we're going on an early dinner time.
After steak, Mediterranean veggies, and fresh croissants I realized I have two online class sections starting on Tuesday, so I got Unit 1 locked and loaded for those folks, and then we watched the first new episode of Sherlock (whoaaaa, mindfuck), and then I finally read. I crammed in another couple of hours for a grand total of maybe three hours of reading?! Not my best work.
Once my eyes gave out, I did a task that seems very Bloggiesta to me even though it only partially affects my blog. I archived all of the Nook books in my B&N account that I've read! Now I won't have to wade though them to get to the unread books.
Sunday Check-Ins (will be doing some of these live today):
And 10 hours later, here I am! Got a little reading done today...more Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, dipped into The Unfinished World by Amber Sparks, and I made another go at Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I'm thankful to #24in48 for getting me reading at least a bit on a weekend I probably would've otherwise not read at all because of house stuff. And thanks to #Bloggiesta for the inspiration to organize!
I'll finish off the night with a little Order of the Phoenix, and we'll see what tomorrow's day off brings. Good night friends!
