Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 10/2/16

Sunday Post 17

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. Last week on FYFA (and in my life): My youngest turned 12 yesterday! Hard to believe. How are my kids getting so big?!!! I’m finally starting to settle into my schedule a bit and stress less about my kids’ schoolwork. I had a very hard time with that at first because I was stressed about my son’s level of work (he’s a “do the absolute minimum required” kind of kid, and I was having a hard time figuring out how to motivate him).

September Recap & Best of the Bunch

September Recap & Best of the Bunch

Best of the Bunch, Monthly Recap 12

My Goings On in September: September turned out to be crazily busy for me because of co-op classes starting. I’m teaching a writing class, an acting class, and a blogging class AND my kids’ classes are just generally more challenging (and time-consuming!) this year. It doesn’t help that I stress about my son’s schoolwork more than I probably should. He’s a freshman this year, and he would prefer it if I were completely hands-off (all of his classes are taught through co-op, the local college, or online), but I have a hard time not at least keeping tabs on him– he’s proven in the past that he lets things go if I’m not on top of him). Sigh. I’m working on a new editing project. Nothing else. Literally. I’m barely keeping my head above water with just those two things. Yikes!

And if you live where I do in the northern US, the dirtiest of the four letter words will be here before you know it—snow. 😝 The winner of our August discussion challenge link-up was Jess @ Princessica of Books.
