Week in Review: October 4

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

I can’t believe it’s already October. I feel like I blinked and September was over. Work was very, very busy this week (weeding consumed my life) and I am hoping for things to be quieter this month because I honestly can’t handle that pace indefinitely. This Friday I finally had some time to tackle my email inbox which is looking much neater and feels more manageable now. I already have a 2016 planner but I feel like so much is going on that I should be using it already. Which, of course, is not how planners work at all.

That said, I’m feeling pretty organized and on top of everything. I’ve been making a concerted effort to reconnect with friends and I think that’s probably a good thing and long overdue. I need to get a better handle on my schedule to make more consistent time for writing, but I’m getting there.

I’ve been trying for the past few months to get a handle on the amount of books I have to be read. Part of that has involved creating monthly reading trackers here on the blog. Part of it has been being more mindful about what I request and also more mindful of what I want to read. That said, I still wound up adding back a lot of books that upon further thought, I really do want to get to. Books I want to read are back up to 87 which is honestly not a lot. But I really, really want it to get lower. If only I could read faster.

If you want to see how my month in reading is shaking out be sure to check out my October Reading Tracker.
