Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 10/2/16

October 2, 2016 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). But he’s actually picked up a lot of slack this year, and I think I can let go of the reins a bit—thank goodness!

SO, I managed to get quite a bit up on the blog this week and get a good amount of work done on my editing project. I call that a success!

Next weekend, I’m going to be attending the YA Lit Conference at Anderson’s Bookstore with my mom, so I’m really looking forward to that!!

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week:

Apparently, I somehow missed October 1st in last week’s calendar, so I’m a day late for Kimberly’s birthday. Go wish her a belated happy birthday anyway (better late than never!). Also, check out the calendar to see what you might have just missed or what’s coming up.

      Ha! I just got through with a twenty minute argument with my son about schoolwork, so I’m feeling stressed right now. Sigh. Someday he’ll be responsible enough to care without me badgering him, right? (Don’t worry, I don’t expect you to answer that.)

    I’m glad you’re having a better go at this time around. I can only imagine the stress of handling everything you’ve got going. My 15-year-old was once had the same work ethics as your son but she’s really come a long way since switching schools. Now, she’s actually on the honour roll and gone are the days when I have to force her to do her homework! I’m so thankful she came to her own.

    Anyway, I hope you’ll have a great October, Nicole.

    Happy reading!

      I’m still kind of waiting on that with my son. I tried to stop the micromanaging and he got a C on a test today. Sigh. Overall, he’s doing well, but it’s frustrating that he doesn’t really care unless I force him to. We can’t figure out how to help him be self-motivated.

    I’m really curious about Stalking Jack the Ripper even though it’s not the type of book I’d normally read, but I’ve seen good reviews. I see you mini- reviewed so I went over and checked that out. I may have to get this one.

    Have a great time at the YA Lit conference!

    Hope you love the YA Lit conference – that sounds great.

    I also picked up the Rae Carson this week after seeing great reviews for the sequel so I’m going to have to find some time to squeeze that in somewhere on the TBR!

    Hope you have a great week again this week. 🙂

    Happy birthday to your youngest!! 12 years old is a big age, so close to being a teenager. Hoo boy, you’ll have three of those in your house next year! Better buy more chocolate. Lol. 🙂
