Update Time

I just wanted to give everyone a bit of an update as to why I haven't been posting as much lately.

First, my mom is getting the house re-painted and is getting new flooring installed. This has led to a lot of packing and moving of things. I had to box up all of my books (except for the small box of ones I will read over the next two weeks) in 24 hours. Now, I have a lot of books (I didn't count but my guess is around 800) so this was not an easy feat. They're currently in twelve 56 gallon plastic bins and nine fabric cubicle bins. I am already absolutely dreading having to put them all back because they were not packed up in alphabetical order. They were packed up due to size, and although it wasn't completely random, I am a bit OCD.

Second, my job is a fickle thing. At my store, I'm on the team everyone relies on to do everything, even if it's not our job. For a while things were looking better and we were getting our own duties completed. But now, the new store manager wants to add to our list of duties and it's really stressing me out. You know I'm stressed if my psoriasis breaks out... And when I'm stressed, I don't read as much. So part of my lack of posting is that I don't have nearly as many reviews to write as I normally would. I have fallen a bit behind schedule in regards to reading and finishing books that I received for reviews, which adds to the stress. And it also keeps me from picking up a book just for me. It's like a never ending cycle...

Third, I have had some opportunities present themselves over the past month that have taken up a bit of my time as well. I'm not at liberty to talk about this portion at the moment, but don't worry, it's good things! It's just also things that keep me away from my books and this blog a bit more.

So these are all of the reasons I have been a bit less present than usual. Hopefully the home improvement things don't last longer than planned (although you never know with Florida weather), and hopefully work doesn't get any more stressful. I probably won't be posting anything for Stacking the Shelves until after my books are back where they belong since I do not know what is in each bin. But when I finally do post, it'll most likely be epic. I will probably continue posting Waiting on Wednesday and Top 5 Sunday posts, and hope to still get some reviews out during all of this mayhem. And I'll still be lurking around on twitter because my phone is almost always with me. :)


  1. I totally feel you on the psoriasis :( Every time I'm stressed/mad it flares up and with this hot weather (cali) it's not helping it either.

    Hope things gets less stressful at work!

  2. Good luck! Hope things get closer to normal soon.

  3. thanks for sharing.
