For some reason, it feels like I haven't done one of these in ages! I guess that's what taking a month-long break does to a person. It also seems to make a person completely lazy and thrown off their groove!
Yes, that's my excuse. A lot of you (or maybe not) might have noticed that I haven't exactly been on top of everything lately. I had my first late post on Friday, and again Tuesday morning. The truth is that while September was a great time to take a break, I kinda wonder if maybe it shouldn't have extended into October. Because this month has been so insanely busy - and I have so not felt like reading - that I want to scream. It has been the month of doctor check-ups and people visiting. I haven't had time to do anything.
There's also the matter of: I'm in a reading funk. It is taking me far longer to get through The Universe Builders than it should. I've been double-reading books, but it isn't working. Something threw my schedule off, and when I don't have a schedule, I freak out. So I need to take a step back and reorganize.
But October hasn't been all horrid and stressful. I've been taking weekly swing dance lessons (!!), I've been able to write some, and I had loads of fun doing two shopping trips with a friend and my sister. In the words of Lady Sybil Crawley: "Is there anything more thrilling than a new frock?"
November will hopefully calm down. Well, sort of. Christmas is looming.
Happy October, everyone!
