Oy vey, August has already managed to come and go. Though I did have a few fun posts, I also had a record low number of posts for the month (only 12! Ouch). Fitting, I suppose, given the chaos of our recent and upcoming moves.
I mentioned previously about some of the struggles we had with our temporary rental, the list of which has grown to include the 4 (fixed) natural gas leaks, a broken oven, 2 broken dishwashers, an immovable, enormous fire pit in our backyard full of broken glass, a burst pipe, and neighbors who have had a few too many visits from the local police force for my liking.
HOWEVER, I am happy to report that we will be officially moving to our (forever?) home starting September 14, less than 2 short weeks from now. Oh, how I count the very minutes. YOU CAN'T IMAGINE. (For any new followers getting lost in this story, feel free to read back here and catch up a bit.)
September is also going to be crazy-slash-awesome because it is mine and Hubster's 6th wedding anniversary, the start of my third trimester, AND my 30th birthday (of which I am not scared in the least, thankyouverymuch). Plus, you know, autumn and all the greatness that is apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes (decaf...sigh), and cooler weather (especially for this sweaty preggo. What I would give for a 65-degree day).
(Oh, and in book news, don't forget that Stephen King's Doctor Sleep comes out September 24...which is, OF COURSE, my birthday...and I've already preordered it and will be staring at my Kindle at midnight to watch it download.)
ANYWAY. That's this month. Let's recap a bit of last month.
The August 2013 Fave/Least Fave picks go to:
August 2013 Favorite: The Banks of Certain Rivers by Jon Harrison
August 2013 Least Favorite: Race Across the Sky by Derek Sherman
In total, I read/reviewed 5 books:
The Never List by Koethi Zan
Race Across the Sky by Derek Sherman
The Panopticon by Jenni Fagan
The Banks of Certain Rivers by Jon Harrison
Hungry by Darlene Barnes
Otherwise, I was admittedly a bit absent, but I did reveal that Tater Tot is going to be a boy, and we went back to 1990 to reminisce about pen pals.
So, there's August...bring on September and all the chaos that shall ensue! (I promise my months will get uneventful again soon, maybe in October? Well, at least until this baby arrives.
Nevermind, I make no promises.)
