Sunday Post 48

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. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Nothing new to say this week. I’ve still been working on organizing my MG bookshelf, but I don’t have a new pic yet. Spent lots of time at track meets this past week. And on doing homework with the kiddos. It’s been rainy here, but I’ll take that over snow!! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Always lots of posts at the end/beginning of the month! Bite-Sized Reviews of Song for a Whale, A Friendly Town That’s Almost Always by the Ocean, The Color of Lies, and The Lunar Chronicles The… 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. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Not much new to tell you this week. I think I’m all out of interesting news for now. (If by some chance, you’ve been away and haven’t seen the exciting news I’ve been shouting about, check it out.)  🙂 I have been working on reorganizing my bookshelves now that I’ve gotten rid of a lot of homeschooling books. I’m working on gathering up all my MG books so they’ll be together (right now they’re all spread out and/or in my kids’ rooms). For now, I have them with my classics. Here’s where I’m at so far: Here’s what you… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Okay, guys, welcome to the rollercoaster that is a writer’s life … I am. this. close. to announcing that thing that I thought wasn’t happening. It’s practically a done deal now. But it’s not actually a done deal, so I can’t say anything else. Lots of stuff going on for my kids this week—like meetings for my middle daughter’s Costa Rica trip (she’s going with school at the beginning of summer) and doing an observation at the school that my son is going to go to next year. (Since it’s not the school he’d be automatically enrolled in based on our address, but… 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. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Well, I’m starting to lose hope about that possible good news on the writing front. I don’t really have anything new to report, and that in itself makes me think that it’s not going to happen. Maybe someday I’ll be able to share the story in hindsight. Right now I’m just trying not to let disappointment win out over the positives in the situation. 🙁 Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post: Bookworm Confession: Swag Isn’t My Thing. Let’s Discuss. (Plus a Giveaway) Bite-Sized Reviews of A Curse So Dark and Lonely,… 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. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I had two different writer groups this week (one for SCBWI and one at my local library) and now this weekend I’ve been participating in WriteOnCon, which is an online kidlit (YA and under) writing conference. I’m in awe at the pure amount of content in this conference. If you’re a writer or interested in writing, you should definitely check it out because it’s super reasonably priced and you can access all of the sessions for the next week. I spent almost all day Friday on the site, and every spare minute yesterday on it and I’ve found so many… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): First off, I just have to thank all of you who sent your heartfelt well-wishes for my blogoversary. I feel really lucky to be a part of the book blogosphere! If you haven’t already, make sure you enter my blogoversary giveaway! I’m in the midwest, so the windchill here got all the way down to -51 degrees because of the polar vortex!! School was obviously cancelled for a couple of days, and we just hid out indoors. Last night I attended an SCBWI event featuring agent Sara Megibow from KT Literary, who gave us so many insights on how… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I’m posting this on Saturday this week since I have a blog tour review scheduled for tomorrow. I got lots of blog hopping done this week. I managed to reply and comment back to almost all my comments and also read a good portion of the discussions that have been linked to the Discussion Challenge. It’s nice to feel on top of blogging stuff for a change (don’t worry, I’m sure it won’t last). The 31st is my six-year blogoversary, so keep your eye out for a celebration post!! I also got a bit of potential good news on the… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I’m in a serious slump here, guys. The only thing I’ve really gotten done is organizing my house. I’ve gotten a little crazy about it (in a good way—mostly). I have thrown out bags and bags of junk and donated even more. So far, we’ve gone through the basement (there are still a couple of problem areas I need to go through, like under the stairs), some of the dressers, the front coat closet (that one was a challenge!), some of the kitchen (when we had to relace the dishwasher I cleared out a few of the cabinets that… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I spent my blogging time this week mostly catching up on replying to comments and commenting back (“catching up” is a relative term here—I just checked and I’m back up to 65 un-replied comments. I’m trying, though!). I’ve also been reading some discussions and year-end wrap-ups. So, I didn’t have much time to actually write posts this week (but at least the one post I did put up was fun!). I’ve also STILL been updating my Master List of 2019 Reading Challenges because more keep popping up. Next year, I’m going to update it every Sunday and add red… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): This was the last week of Christmas break for my kids, so I’ll be getting back to a normal schedule next week. It seems like time just keeps flying by! We’ve been doing some “winter break cleaning” around here. My husband and younger daughter are redoing the upstairs bathroom—new paint, trim, door and light fixture and a refresh to the cabinets. It’s been quite the project! Meanwhile I’ve been sorting through our monster-mess of a basement, cleaning out old craft stuff and general junk that gets carted down there. And then, of course, as soon as we’re in the… Read more »
