First day of fourth grade. Look at those cute shoes!
The first day of eighth grade. I actually made her pose after school, because I didn't quite have my act together at 7:45 am when she left for school.
And no sooner is she home and she's already off with her friends. *sigh*
Two days down, one hundred seventy-nine to go until summer vacation! But who's counting? I am!
So I've decided to make a New School Year's Resolution. I figure the household schedule gets rearranged this time every year, so it's a great time to resolve to make some improvements in my time management. Time management not my strongest suit, which isn't such a good thing for a certified teacher and girl scout leader to admit. You think?
I've done this New School Year's resolution in the past. One year I resolved to have dinner ready by 6:30 pm every night and I. Just. Couldn't. Do. It. I finally resolved to let that one go so now dinner is at 7 pm and everyone's happy. This year, my time management resolution doesn't have anything to do with improving the efficiency of the household, but my blog. Sweet, huh?
I've procrastinated writing reviews for some fabulous books I've been reading in these last few months, so I'm resolving to write more book reviews in a more timely fashion from here on in.
Around the time that I started this blog, I had been keeping track of the books I read each month on my myspace blog, often including some commentary. Because my myspace page is private, I started duplicating those myspace blog posts on a livejournal blog so that anyone not on my myspace friends list could read my entries. Way too much redundancy. So tonight I decided to consolidate my blogging spaces. I'm no longer going to blog on myspace or livejournal and will keep track of the books I'm reading each month on an archive blog that is linked to this blog and my blogger profile.
On the side bar there is a link to my Book Archives where you can see the books I've read each month. I figure this is my first step at better organizing myself and I'll write less commentary in the archives and write more reviews here. Well, that's my plan anyway.
