Reading went well this week! I finished Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith AND The Walking Dead: Book Eight by Robert Kirkman AND Jack of the Fables #1: The (Nearly) Great Escape by Bill Willingham AND I started reading The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. If you keep on reading, you will eventually see why I had such a great reading week!
According to my Goodreads Challenge where I keep track of my total books read for the year (currently 52 books) compared to my goal (70 books), I am currently 15 books behind in reaching my goal for 2012. I am really hoping to meet my goal by year-end, but I just don't know if it is going to happen. If I can at least get to a total of 60 books, I will still be happy and improved from last year. Hopefully, I can keep up the awesome reading that I had this last week!
Writing ... let's just skip this one this week. I got nothing!
This last week was rough. My daughter was sick with a stomach bug, my (new-ish) computer went down for an unknown reason, a restoration of the computer failed multiple times and I no longer have access to any of my files, my son got sick with the stomach bug, we mailed off our computer to the manufacturer because it is likely a hardware problem, and that does not even include the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary that I cannot get out of my head. Reading helped me escape all this madness and I easily accepted getting lost in my reading!
With a week like that, I have been trying to focus on the positive -- a thing that has proven difficult with all that has happened this year. BUT, I can still come up with some goodness, including cuddling with my kids, my mom coming in for the holidays, Christmas quickly approaching, a loving husband, and a roof over my head to name a few.
Sticking with the goodness, tell me what is positive in your life? What are you thankful for?
