I have so much stuff to do and I’m running out of time – Yet here I am procrastinating by writing a blog post about it.
Three will become four (well six if you include the fur-babies) on around the 22nd of December. The house will be bursting full, as will my head. But before I start maternity leave with Baby #2 I have a whole bunch of stuff I need to get set up/finished off to make life easier for everyone at work while I’m away. It’s a small family business so I actually care and it’s nice to try and make things as easy as possible for the others. I’ve still got two TAFE assignments to hand in before December and I’ve still got to clean out the junk room and turn it into a nursery. No one will be getting Christmas cards this year, that s*** will just not be happening.
I’ve been feeling very unreviewy lately 😦 which is probably obvious given the mini review posts I’ve been doing. I’ve only got two review ARC’s left and they just need reviews up before November. I’ll definitely have to keep myself off of NetGalley for the next six or so months if I want any chance of retaining my sanity post Baby #2. I still intend to read as much as possible, but at least if I’m reading books I’ve purchased I don’t have to write a review if I don’t feel up to it. I actually got quite a lot books read while I was off on maternity leave with Riley. When he was awake I’d read aloud whatever I was in the middle of, it always put him back to sleep – Thank you Rick Riordan whose whole Percy Jackson series we devoured at that time.
Once I get on top of my pre-baby to do list – hahahahahahaha, seriously you should see the f***ing list – my reading plan will be to catch up on any series I’ve started, then to tackle the ageing of my TBR. The oldest book on my Goodreads TBR was added back in 2013. I’m now only 3 years behind lol, actually I think that’s pretty good. My plan is to bounce between the eldest on my list and a new release so I can get through all my old amazon kindle purchases but still feel like I know whats going on in the book blogger world. But for now >>>>
Yes like writing this blog post :-P.

I don’t think I knew you were pregnant! Congrats! And I really enjoy that last quote about favorite form of self sabotage! hahaha
Thinking about it, I probably haven’t mentioned it on my blog until now lol life’s been rather flat out 🙂 :-).
I can’t wait to eMeet the new bub Sarah, so will be constantly checking Facebook for updates. Bugger reviewing, use that down time to rest and enjoy your books without having that obligation to review. If you want to keep the blog posting every so often, I’m more than happy to help out and pop up a few of my reviews or guest posts. I’m so excited for both of you and Riley!
Love ya Kelly. That would be wonderful if you have the time to spare 🙂 :-).
He’s super excited but I think Riley is expecting a readymade playmate, hmmm he’ll be in for a shock :-|.
