Random Thoughts From This Week

1. Our bathroom remodel is almost done!! Yay!! Now I don't have to shower at my mom's house anymore! :)

2. I have so many books to read. My goal this weekend is to read a whole book. I haven't done that forever, since editing has been on my mind the past few months. So this weekend, I'll finish The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. AND, I really want to read Shatter Me as well. :)

3. That darn "buy now" button on my Amazon account gets me every time. Darn you cheap Kindle books!

4. Critique group was last night. It was fabulous. And hilarious. I love going over our stuff and then chatting and getting sidetracked for an hour... lol I had a blast!

5. 4 day weekend for my little guy. He's so excited not to have to go to school until Tuesday. He's silly. He told me the other day that he was tired of going to school every day. I told him to get used to it, since he was going to be there for 11 more years. Poor kid. Been there.

Anything exciting happen this week? Have a great weekend!!

That Amazon button gets me too. I think I have a problem.

Stephanie McGee said...

1. Yay! Remodels are great at the end but not so fun in the process.

2. I hear you on that one. My TBR pile is sitting at 23 books as of this moment.

3. That's why I don't have a kindle and don't have one-click purchasing set up on my account.

4. Awww, I am in serious need of writerly face time right now. Color me uber-jealous.

5. Yay for long weekends!

Jessica R. Patch said...

My kids are pumped over the long weekend too! Congrats on getting your bathroom finished. :)

I read 3 books this past week, but only because I turned all the required edits to my agent and I took a few days break before revising another ms. It felt great. Enjoy your reading time!

Angela Brown said...

Remodels are usually wonderful--AFTER they're completed :-)

Enjoy getting a reading binge on this weekend. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is mentioned as a favorite of so many readers.

Samantha said...

1.That button gets me everytime!
2.I'm so jealous that he got a 4 day weekend. That doesn't happen in college sadly :(

Jenny S. Morris said...

My guy feels the same way, and was totally bummed when he found out his cousin gets a 4 day weekend and he only gets a 3 day.

Meredith said...

Yay for showering in your own home! That has to be exciting. And I hope you love Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Shatter Me--I had so much fun reading both of those!

J. A. Bennett said...

so fun! Life's pretty boring in my neck of the woods!

Michael Offutt, Visitor from the Future said...

The only thing I have planned this weekend is watching Tim Tebow vs. the Patriots on Saturday.

Jolene Perry said...

Doing a girl day in Anchorage tomorrow with my good friend and her daughter - we're going to our performing arts center to watch Beauty and the Beast and the used bookstore, and the mall, and the fabric store...
I'm thinking it could turn into a really expensive day.

Wish I had along weekend. Enjoy

Tasha Seegmiller said...

Glad your remodel is almost done. I need to embark on those when we finally get to buy the house we are living in.

I'm reading so much more since I got a tablet with the kindle and nook apps. Happy Reading Weekend!

Leigh Covington said...

So glad your bathroom is almost done, and kid crack me up when it comes to school. Crit group really was a blast. You guys have me all pumped up and motivated now! I love it! Thanks for a great night!

Nothing here. I think all the excitement is at your house. Awesome! :D

Our weekends sound strangely similar. We too are remodeling a bathroom, and my son has a four day weekend, and I just bought Variant to try and read over the weekend. Here's to hoping your weekend is productive and fun!

Congrats on the bathroom remodel! Being without is the worst!

Sounds like a good week. It's pretty much all good if you can at least shower at home ;)

I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas, I have pretty much been on it exclusively since then. And I've heard great things about Daughter of Smoke and Bone I think I need to check it out next!

Deniz Bevan said...

Yum, a weekend of reading sounds like a great idea!
And showering at your mom's house?? Argh! Hope the remodelling is over soon!

Julianne Donaldson said...

Cheap books on kindle are killing me too. Talk about impulse shopping at its worst! It's immediate gratification.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

I KNOW I have a problem! lol :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

23 books? Holy crap! I do have a lot, but haven't counted them yet. :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

It really is impulse shopping at its worst. I do love it though, every time a new book shows up on my Kindle... :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

It's pretty much over! Yay! We have a few little things to do, but we can shower at home now! :D

Yes. Showering at home is a plus! :) Thanks for stopping by! :D

Nope! You haven't! :) And I'm LOVING this reply to comment feature! Woot!

I hope your bathroom gets done quick! It's a pain. Ours is pretty much done besides a few little things, so YAY! Then we move on to the kitchen in a few months... :P

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Ha ha! I'm sure you have some fun things, Nisa!

Chantele Sedgwick said...

I have 2 crit groups. One I met online when I stalked ... I mean, followed their blogs, and one that meets face to face. I grew up with two of them, but didn't really know them very well until now, and the other just joined! :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

I know, right? :D

Oh, man! That would stink! lol I'd be bummed too!

Patti said...

I love it when a house project gets finished. It took us a year to do our kitchen floor. I read the first three chapter of Smoke and Bone and loved it. Now I need to buy the book.
