Miscellaneous Ramblings

I’ve been MIA …

… sorry about that. I know better than to neglect my blog for a week at a time, but it’s been crazy around here.

Warmer weather = more work for Tara, so I’ve been extremely busy. I’ve gone from working 1-2 days a week to 3-4. We’ve put Garrett on daycare lists 😦 This makes me sad but relieved at the same time. I’m ready to go back to work. We won’t be putting him in full-time, just 3 days a week. But I definitely need to get back to work ASAP. It’s getting so hard to work from home, I find myself behind on my work more and more. It’s just time. Ideally I want to work 4 days and have 1 day at home with Garrett. Winter time will be different because we usually aren’t busy in the winter (I work at a concrete company).

My computer is half-dead, so I have ordered a new one. It’s supposed to be delivered on Tuesday! I made the switch to Mac – I’m super excited but also scared to make the switch. I think I will love it. When I was in high school I was issued a Mac laptop for my journalism class (I was feature editor my senior year, editors all got to take home laptops) and I loved it. And I have an iPhone and an iPad that I use tons – but I have been holding off on making the switch from PC. But I’ve been so disappointed in this Dell I’ve had the last 3 years that I decided it was time to take the plunge … we shall see!

Nathan and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on May 16th. I can’t believe it’s been that long! I guess we are getting old, lol.

Garrett’s birthday is in less than 2 weeks! What the heck?! Where on earth has the time gone? My baby is going to be 1! ONE YEAR OLD! I’m sad. But not anxious to have another one – much to the chagrin of my in-laws, lol. We will likely be a one child family. I was an only child and loved it. Besides, I’m not really all that anxious to go through the itty-bitty baby stuff again … or the sleepless nights 🙂

I’ll have a few things to post this coming week, I’ve got my review of Michael Stanley’s Deadly Harvest ready to go on 5/20. I would definitely recommend it. Also look for a new recipe next week 🙂

I’ve been reading, just very sporadically. I’m right in the middle of an ARC of Adam Mitzner’s A Case of Redemption. I’m really enjoying it, look for my review of that by the end of next week (maybe I will get to write it on my new laptop!!)

Hope everyone has a great weekend, we don’t have anything going on today. But tomorrow we are going to the in-laws and spend the day at their house.

I’ll try not to let it go a week before I post again!

Happy reading 🙂
