Sunday Post 30

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): This week has been hectic because my oldest and I were racing to finish his online chemistry course before he leaves for Japanese immersion camp (which he does today). Even though it’s technically an online class, 99% of the instruction was via the textbook, so I was going through it with him (he doesn’t learn well from just reading a book if it’s a subject he’s not interested in). Luckily, I like chemistry a whole lot more now than I did when I was in high school—except for labs (or, more accurately, the questions that go with the labs—a lot… Read more »

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): Today my husband and I are celebrating our 18-year anniversary. And since we dated for seven years before we got married (we were high school sweethearts), that means we’ve been together a quarter of a century! Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. This week I tried to conquer my MASSIVE email inbox and I discovered two books that I’d been given for review that I’d somehow completely lost track of. I’m really embarrassed. Lately, my email has been completely out of control, no matter how hard I try to stay on top of it. I know I need to… Read more »

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): Had another fun week around here! My kids had a friend over who had moved to Boston in the spring, so it was great to see her and hang out in the pool (they braved the cold water!), at the dog park and at Great America amusement park.

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): Much better week this week (no robberies, so you know…). We got to hang out with family at my niece’s confirmation last Sunday and then we spent a fun day at Six Flags amusement park later in the week. Yesterday the kids had a swim meet. And, best of all, we got our August vacation all booked! We’re super excited because we’re renting an RV and heading to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for about a week. We’ve always had a sort of pipe dream of actually living in an RV, so this is a chance for us to experience a tiny slice… Read more »

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): This week started out great, but then got strange fast. I’ll start with the good. I’m writing this post from a swim meet again (on Saturday). We love swimming, but there’s lots of downtime. But that’s okay because that means I have plenty of time to write my Sunday Post today. Last weekend, my daughter had a piano/voice recital and she also had a little ceremony because she was one of the winners of our library’s literary magazine contest. She wrote a really adorable short story for my homeschool writing class and entered it in the contest. I’m super proud and impressed… Read more »

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): First of all,  happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! I hope you get pampered today. Today is my daughter’s 13th birthday, so I’ve got another teenager in the house. Yikes! If I disappear, you can just assume I didn’t survive it. I finished the first edit of the book I was working on and got it back to the author, so I’ll be back around the blogosphere a bit more this week!

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): I know I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but this is going to be a quick post today (I’m not adding many new links). I’m really in crunch time trying to finish up my editing job, and I spent all last night helping my daughter work on songs for her recital and helping my son study for his Japanese final.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): I’ve been running super behind since I’ve been working on this newest editing project, unfortunately. I just checked and saw that I have 77 comments that haven’t yet been replied to! Yikes!! I have to confess that I never managed to get to all the March wrap-up posts either. I know this is probably weird, but I have this compulsion when it comes to link-ups that I host—I have to read and comment on every post linked up or I end up feeling guilty (I’m 99.9% sure that I’ve done this for every single discussion post that’s ever been linked… Read more »

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): I was going to write up a review of Letters to the Lost last night, but my family ended up watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and I realized it was the type of movie you just can’t look away from (I often blog while we’re watching TV, but this was not that type of movie!). I’ve also finally started working out again, and I’m watching 13 Reasons Why while on the elliptical. I’ve watched the first three episodes and I’m definitely hooked. I’d planned to read the book first, but I actually think this might be a… Read more »

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): First of all, Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate the holiday!! This week I got a new editing project, so I’ll be a bit busier for a little while and might not have as much time to roam the blogosphere—I promise I’ll be back as soon as I can, though! Yesterday our family went to Six Flags Great America for the first time of the season. It was an absolutely gorgeous day! We have season’s passes, so we’ll probably be there a lot this summer!
