Well, it’s official. I have a pre-K graduate #classof2029 (just typing that makes me feel SO old). Little man finished preschool on Thursday and the school had a small graduation and spring program. It was so fun to see him walk on the stage and get his “diploma” along with all the other little ones. He was so proud and of course we were too.
Reading wise it was a better week. I managed to finish two books, both 5 star reads for me. I took a break from packing as well. I’ve got our office fully packed. The next big area is the kitchen. Unfortunately most of the kitchen will be a last minute job. Only 40 days left 😀
What did you do this week?
So I started Nirvana by J.R. Stewart on Thursday and because it’s short thought I’d finish it on Friday. Well, to be completely honest, it was sucking!! I DNFed it and then I realized something…..I was reading the unedited draft, not the new pretty copy they sent me a few months ago. So I’ve restarted it and let me tell you after just the first few chapters it is 10x better than the draft I was reading!!! I’m SO glad I realized that I had a newer, MUCH better version on hand. I HATE to DNF a book.
I’m also listening to Mitch Albom’s The First Phone Call From Heaven. Little man and I are visiting family and the long three hour drive was the perfect time to start it. I’m close to the halfway mark and it is really good so far.
And I’m still reading Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin as a group read with the dystopia reading challenge. So far it is excellent!!! I’m 3/4 done and plan to finish it when I get home on Wednesday.

Clean Sweep ARC Challenge Update
I don’t think I’ll be making my goal of 20 books this month. I should have known better than to challenge myself that many with the move coming up. I managed to read 2 books again this week:
- The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye
- The Queen of All that Lives by Laura Thalassa

This Week’s Book Fix
What are you reading this week?
This is going to be a busy, busy week! Little man is going on Tuesday for his Kindergarten assessment screening. We are still praying and hoping he gets into the small private school here. My husband and I both feel it would benefit him to be in a small classroom and we really love their curriculum as well.
On Wednesday my sweet grandmother is having a minor surgery. We found out this past week that she has invasive ductal carcinoma which is just a fancy way of saying breast cancer. We are so thankful that the type she has is very treatable. The doctor said it is small and she believes they can remove it all with surgery and she won’t need treatment after. Still the word cancer is scary and at 79 my grandmother’s health isn’t the best. So if you pray (and even if you don’t) please send some good vibes our way early Wednesday morning. It would be greatly appreciated!
