Happy Sunday everyone! This week was exciting and exhausting. The day I dreaded all year arrived on Monday. My baby, my little man started Kindergarten. I’m not really sure why I’ve dreaded it. He’s a social kid and I knew he’d love school. I think I’ve been dreading the alone time. I’m used to having him with me, pretending to be a superhero or jedi with him, playing games and reading our favorite books together all day, everyday. Now he’s at school all day. It’s a big adjustment, I think more so for me than him.

Kindergarten, according to my son, is “awesome” (yes that’s a direct quote). He loves it! He comes home every day with new stories about what he’s learned and new words too. Friday night I was singing while he was taking a bath and he told me “Silencio! There is no music in this class.” Haha!!! At least he pays attention in Spanish 😀

Reading wise, I think (I’m afraid I’ll curse myself by saying this) I’m out of my slump. I managed three books this week and have rediscovered my love of audiobooks. I used to listen all the time before I had little man. While he was at school and I was crocheting (my other love), I listened to an entire book this week. Yay for multitasking!

Currently Reading

So last week I said I was starting The Winner’s Trilogy and then I remembered I had some ARCs to read first so NOW I’ve started it. Hopefully will finish the entire series this week. Liking it so far 😀

This Week’s Book Fix

What are you reading this week?

This week is filled with birthdays 😀 Yesterday was my mother’s-in-law, my sister’s-in-law is later this week, my mom’s is Friday and my nephew’s first birthday party is next Saturday. So full week!!

My husband was in South Carolina last week and is supposed to be home later today. I’m crossing all my fingers and toes that one day this week we can have a date night and more specifically he’ll read the post to the end and see my hint about the Josh Turner concert next weekend ? There are still seats (good seats too) and I’d love to go!!! I’ll let y’all know if my backwards way of hinting worked next Sunday.

What are your plans for this week?

  1. It’s always hard when you spend all day with them, then they go to school 🙁 but it will be nice to have some alone time. I can’t wait for my kids to go back so I can have my Friday’s alone again, lol. I miss them but it was so nice to be in my own head for the day.

    Have a great week, Lillian! Happy Reading!

    PS I really think you should go to the concert and I hope he read this! 😉

    • It’s been really nice to have some alone time. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed audiobooks until this week when I was able to listen to them! I miss him like crazy while he’s at school but I’m getting a lot done while he’s gone and he’s loving it 😀

      I mentioned the concert to my husband after I wrote my post last night and he’s all for it. So hopefully we’ll get a babysitter and go. Crossing my fingers!

      Hope you have a great week Michelle!

  2. Oh wow, Lillian! It sure is emotional when our children start something new and exciting, no matter what the milestone is… My two oldest children both start their first full-time job tomorrow :O I can’t understand that they’re old enough to work…
    Your new books look fantastic, and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

  3. Aww. It looks like he’s having the time of his life! I was not that happy when I started kindergarten. I cried, I latched onto my mom yelling I didn’t want to go. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that my birthday that year landed on the first day of school. LoL
    Is it just me or does the guy on the cover of Heroes of Arcania look like Nick Jonas?

  4. It’s always SUCH a relief when they settle well at kindergarten – and I know how you feel about missing him. But you can now begin to let go, knowing he is happy and confident. Have another great week of audioreading (if that’s a word…)

  5. Audiobooks are a great way to fill the silencio of an empty house. You remind me that I am way behind on my afghan’s. I have been so caught up in my new blog etc, that I haven’t had a chance to plan the next one. I better get on it before my nephew ends up heading to college (he’s only 3).
