It's Monday! Trying to keep up with work and life

For the last few weeks I've really felt the strain of work and trying up to keep up with home duties and a semi-social life. It's not working so well. I was able to make a flying trip up to Minnesota last weekend though for my grandma's birthday. It was great to see family... Especially when there's babies to cuddle! :) I was able to listen audiobooks a lot on the road trip which was nice. Overall my reading has been pretty good and I've surprisingly been keeping up pretty well. I've also really enjoyed getting to see the long anticipated trailer for the upcoming Star Wars movie! Who else is dxchyed about it?!?! :)
Also this weekend I went to a book sale and got four bags of books! I'll hopefully get a Stackhng the Shelves post up about all the books I got soon. :)

  3. Four bags of books! Wow!
    Life, books, and school for me are so crazy juggling. That was nice you were able to listen to audiobooks. I have heard a couple, but I've found that it really depends on the reader whether you will have a fun time listening to the story or not. In the past, I have stopped listening to audiobooks just because I could not stand the reader's voice (this usually happens when you can tell they are a smoker).

    1. It definitely depends on the narrator. Thankfully I've always had good narrators.
      And the smoking comment made me laugh out loud.
