It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
I'm sitting here in my new living room looking around at empty and full boxes on a quiet Sunday morning. The bulk of the first half of our move is done. My brother still has quite a lot of things to move from the old house to the new house.
As I thought, he hadn't started packing anything. It took us a whole day to pack up his CDs, DVDs, and books and the movers were coming the next morning. My library will take at least that long and I'll be doing it alone. However, I do not tend to wait until the last minute to start. I plan to bring home empty boxes when I'm back in Duluth for Christmas so that I can start packing. At least now I know how much of my kitchen stuff will fit in our new kitchen. I do have furniture that will fill in some of the empty spaces in the new house.
The movers came bright and early Friday morning and were finished unloading and setting up everything they moved by 3:30. Bill and I returned to the old house on Saturday to pack up the kitchen. We also got most of it set up in the new house by bedtime on Saturday.
I need to head back home to go to school again on Monday. I'm telling him I'm sorry to leave him with so much left to do but I'm secretly grateful. I am so tired that going back to work sounds like a vacation to me. It is a little daunting that I will be doing the same thing next June.
I think I only read 2% of my current book since Wednesday morning. I'm looking forward to having more time to read once I get back home.
