I don’t know, y’all, it was really kind of a “blah” week… We didn’t get a lot done in homeschool, we didn’t get a lot done around the house, I never made it to the grocery store as planned, and we didn’t make it to the library, either. Bad, bad mommy in the Pathologically Literate Household this week! Oh! I did order new science books and an experiment kit for The Boy – the curricula we had originally purchased just wasn’t working out for us, so we found a great new one by Elemental Science (Earth Science & Astronomy for the Logic Stage) that we’re really excited about! The experiment kit came on Friday and the books will come on Monday… woo-hoo! Oh, and on Tuesday, we have another package coming with another component of our schoolroom design plan… someday it will be complete and I will show you before and after pics – aren’t you just quivering with anticipation?! Yeah, I thought so. I love getting packages in the mail – this time of year is so fun because we tend to get more due to purchasing gifts online. The anticipation of opening those little brown packages is so exciting – even if I know what’s already in there. As you can see, I’m very easy to please. It’s the simple things. Speaking of simple, I read some simply great books this week:

Yes, I know. I only read three books. For having such a slow week with everything else, I sure was off my reading game, wasn’t I? Blech. Anyway, Burial Rites was sooooo good! And A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is my absolute favorite Joshilyn Jackson novel to date! It was so wonderful. King and Maxwell was good – they always are – but, well… I guess you’ll have to wait for my review to find out what my thoughts are on that one. I have a few. Thoughts, that is. About the book. And other things, of course. I know you can’t wait to hear them, so be on the lookout for that review very soon!
