Sunday Synopsis: November 22, 2009

I am a little late in posting my little weekly summary. I had such high hopes of getting caught up this weekend, but then my internet went and died on me! Even now it is only working sporadically and to be quite honest, I am going crazy!!! Who would have thought that I would be so "plugged in"?!?! Thank heavens I have a 5-day weekend coming up, starting this Wednesday, to work on getting my internet working again consistently and caught up some more reviews!!
