It’s been a loooooooong time since I posted anything conversational on this here blog. In fact, the last time I posted anything that wasn’t a review or Read-a-Thon related was the end of March. Oy.
I’ve been in a little bit of a funk. Winter and spring are surprisingly hard for me, the past few years. I get stuck in routines (ruts, even), and the thought of doing anything different makes me cringe. What little social instinct I have disappears. I read twitter and facebook, but my posting dwindles drastically. I have all sorts of intentions of posting stuff, but nothing ever gets written. And to top it off, one little annoying medical issue after another has kept me in waiting room after waiting room since February. Nothing serious, it just seems like it never ends. Even now, I’m suffering the after-effects of a cold I had 3 weeks ago. My right ear won’t unplug! So annoying.
Now, the sun has come out, and summer is in full force. Hallelujah!
My reading has actually been pretty good. In fact, I read four books just this weekend, finishing off the Sookie Stackhouse series. I’m a little behind the pace I’d like to be at (my goal for this year is 144 books), but I’m not unhappy with my progress.
In other good news, my illustrious husband has kindly arranged for us to have a partially paid for vacation this year. To Las Vegas! We play in the APA pool league, and he and another teammate of ours entered a doubles tournament and won! The prize is entry into the national tournament, and money towards the trip. It’s nowhere near enough money to cover the whole thing, but it’s enough to cover one of our plane tickets and a couple of nights in the hotel. The actually tournament only runs 3 days, but we’re planning to extend the trip to a whole week. I’m quite excited. Anyone have any recommendations for Las Vegas in general? We’ll have several days for sight-seeing before he has to play pool. It’ll be the third week of August, so no desert hikes please 🙂
So anyway, I’m trying to make an effort to post more non-review material here. I’m especially interested in weekly/monthly memes, but imagine my surprise when I found there was no central listing of book-related memes! I know they’re putting together something for BBAW, so I really look forward to that. In the meantime, what memes do you participate in? What’s your favorite?
