Sunday Synopsis: January 16, 2010

It has been an eventful week, with the highlight being the big party for my son's birthday!  Sadly, because of this craziness, I have not had a chance to read that much this week.  I've been focusing on planning the details, making cupcakes, decorating our house, and really just hanging out with the family.  The end result . . . pure fun!!  It was a blast for the birthday boy, the guests, and the adults.  Despite my little nap, I'm still exhausted tonight though!  Thankfully, it's been a low key night with just a little Golden Globe action!

This week, we've got some big things happening!  I've got students coming back to the university on Tuesday, so my days will be jam-packed with lots of student time . . . the reason I really do love my job!  BUT, the most exciting piece of my week will be taking place tomorrow night.  I am taking my son to his first ever author event!!!!  He is very, very excited!!  We will be seeing Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce, the authors of the ever-popular Magic Tree House series!  Originally, I did not think this was going to be possible, but all things seem to be falling in place and I am now bound and determined that we will be going.  It has been far too long since I have been to a reading and I cannot pass up the opportunity to get my son excited even more about books!

In other news, this is what I posted this week in a nutshell:

This week, I've got a few things already planned, including a discussion post about book titles and wrapping up the Fairy Tale Fridays feature from this last year.  I'm hoping to get a few more articles written, including a special announcement, but we will see what gets done.  Afterall, Bloggiesta is coming up on Friday!!!  I've got high hopes, but don't anticipate a lot of results until late in the week!

Will you be participating in Bloggiesta?  Any other big plans this week?


  1. Did your son enjoy his first ever author event?

    I got lots of reading done this week, I finished Wolf Hall (review to follow shortly) because our internet was out of action for three days. Which just goes to show how much of my time I spend online, but I didn't miss it, for a change it was my daughter climbing the walls because she couldn't chat to her friends on Facebook.

  2. Tracy . . . He had a blast! We had to wait in line quite a bit, but it was fun nonetheless! I will post more about it soon! I don't know what I would do without internet! It would actually probably be a good thing! :)
