    End of An Era

    Hello! ^_^ Few of bits of housekeeping on this glorious almost springtime day. One, I decided I like suspense novels, so I’ve been having a lot of fun lately shopping for suspense books. Two, I’ve been doing random TBRs this year, where I pick my TBR out of themed jars, and that actually hasn’t been a disaster. I don’t always stick to it, but it’s fun, and it keeps me from having decision paralysis over what to read all the time. Three, I actually am still working on the musical project. I have my plot split up into two acts and 46 musical numbers. I decided to go with a…

    Random Thoughts & Blog Changes

    Hi there! It’s me. ^_^ So, first on the agenda: Starting in February, because I had too much to say this month, apparently, I’ll be updating the blog less frequently. Likely every other week, but sometimes there’ll be an update two weeks in a row because of reading updates that happen at the very end or top of every month. I know. You’re so heartbroken. Actually, I know it’s totally fine, but I want to bring it up anyway. I’m doing this for only one reason, and it’s because I associate this blog with writing. Since I’m not writing very much, I honestly don’t know what to say. And between…

    Hotel Life & Shopping For Stuff

    So, I’ve been in hotels for two and a half weeks now. I say hotels because the first one was driving me kind of batty. I wasn’t trying to be a pampered diva, but between it being right in front of the interstate, the internet not working most of the time, and the super loud noises coming from the air conditioner, pipes, and refrigerator (like a persistent LOUD buzzing that lasted for hours at a time), I was feeling pretty stressed. On top of that, the bed wasn’t comfortable, and most nights, in the middle of the night, people would be out in the hallway fighting. And also, it wasn’t…

    More Adventures In House Hunting

    We close on the townhouse tomorrow. I’m currently typing this in a hotel room, my temporary housing, and there are updates! As of Monday, I have a paved driveway, cabinets, vinyl flooring in the laundry room and bathrooms, and beautiful, beautiful paint! See pictures!! I’m so in love with the aqua. 😀 It’s called Serendipity. ^_^ The gray color is called Elemental. Look at how the aqua pops from the living room! The left picture is the Library/Office, and my bedroom is also that color. Right picture is the living room. I went to the paint store already knowing what I wanted, so the goal was to find the closest…

    Adventures In House Hunting

    I didn’t post last week because I was a stress ball, but I have updates!! 😀 First, I’m moving out in less than two weeks, and I’m going to be displaced for a few weeks after, but I’ve already made arrangements, so while there is still stress, there’s not as much as there was. Second, I made an offer the day after my last post. I saw a total of nine houses over 3 days. I probably wouldn’t have looked at so many if I knew exactly what I wanted, but I wasn’t settled on anything. For example, I had a few things I considered deal breakers, but I still…
