So yesterday was my 24th birthday and I celebrated by stuffing myself. I had bacon and chocolate chip pancakes to start and had lunch and dinner out at restaurants. Upon informing the waiter we were celebrating my birthday, I got desserts at the end of both meals. Plus my mom made a funfetti cake with white frosting. So I had three desserts plus regular food. It was all delicious but now I need to buckle down and focus on eating my veggies. It was just a lot.
As for presents...I received some amazing goodies. Of bookish interest might be a kit for my personal library to stamp and track my collection as well as two books and bookmarks designed by my friend. Those bookmarks include author portraits with quotes as well as one incorporating my blog design. My jaw literally dropped when I saw them and how gorgeous they are.
In holiday news, I am so far ahead of the game! I dropped off my coworker presents (I went with fudge and Special K bars) and mailed presents. I still have five presents to wrap and give as well as family but we'll be distributing those on Christmas Eve/Day. Basically I'm done!
My goal is really to reach 300 books read this year, whether or not I write about all on my blog so posting and commenting will probably continue to be sketchy through the end of the year and probably also through February as my work gets busy. March 2 will represent a big break though so I hope to come back that week. Note, I am not planning to stop blogging. I am merely trying to maintain my enthusiasm and create something I can be proud of.
Week to Come:
No idea really-I hope to maybe post something for "Waiting on Wednesday" and I have a few other possible review books (like early copies of Cruel Beauty and The Promise of Amazing.)
What's up with you? Has anyone else felt a bit tired from blogging lately?
