Happy Sunday everyone! What a beautiful week it has been. We had our last taste of warm weather. Temps hit above 70 and a couple of days we were near 80! We really enjoyed that last bit of warmth 😀 Time change however is killing us! Little man is not adjusting well. I don’t know if being at my parents’ last week just completely wore him out or if he’s trying to get sick. He has been pitiful this week. One day he’s up playing and his hyper little self, the next he’s cuddled with me on the couch saying he hurts. Maybe growth spurt? That’s what I’m hoping.

In addition to that, his bedtime went from between 8-9 at night to 7! Now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’m quite enjoying the couple of hours of peace before bedtime. However I’m NOT enjoying the 6am wake up call! Granted I’m usually up by 6:30 anyways, but that extra thirty minutes is really nice 😉

Reading wise, I think I kicked the slump. I read 5 books this week! Three in 2 days and yes that means I just skipped sleep. And YES they were worth it. I finally got to read The Heir by Kiera Cass and I’ll be honest I really wish I would’ve waited until The Crown comes out in May. That cliffhanger!!!! I need it now!

What did you read this week?

Currently Reading

I started Hope’s Deceit yesterday and let me tell you a secret. It was all I could do to NOT drop everything I was doing and read it when I got it. I LOVED the first book and it’s been nearly a year and a half since I read it. Definitely worth the wait 😀

What are you reading this week?

My husband is off doing interviews this weekend and won’t be back til sometime tomorrow. We’re nearing the end of his residency and he’s looking at jobs closer to family. Little man and I decided to stay home so he didn’t miss school. We both are missing him!

This week I’ll be cleaning and doing a few things around the apartment. I plan to sneak my Christmas tree up while the hubby is away 😀 He should be proud of me though. The last few years we haven’t put it up til after Thanksgiving, this year I wanted it up two months ago!!!

Reading wise, I have a few blog tour books to read and a library book. I think I can get them done though. What are your plans this week?

  1. Oh the change in time must be really hard. We have daylight savings in parts of Australia and I know some parents talk about it taking some time for their kids to adjust to the different arrangements. Not time as much as I’m not sure they change their actual bedtime but just those first few days…. (and having good block-out curtains etc!)

    Hope things improve!

  2. I hate changing the time – either way – and I totally understand that the 6am wake-up call is difficult to deal with. It’s like the last part of sleep is the most important one, and you don’t get that 🙁
    Your new books look great this week, Lillian! I’m very curious about The Scorpion Rules.
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

  3. The weather has been great but this weekend got really cold. I am always worried with the change in weather that the kids will get sick. I spent most of the week opening and closing the window and at one point had the AC on because the house was so humid. I hope your little guy isn’t getting sick 🙁 maybe it is some growing pains.

    You got a nice Haul this week, Seaside Christmas looks so cute and I am all in with Christmas but the family wont let me decorate yet. They said I had to wait until after Thanksgiving because they feel I might be a little obsessed. 😉

    I hope you have a fantastic week, Lillian! Happy Reading! ox

  4. oh wow o.o i think we are going to go looking for the Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving this year, assuming my husband can make time for it. But that’s awesome, is it fake or?
    The Last of the Firedrakes by Farah Oomerbhoy looks really good. We also had some 70 temp this week!
