Weekly Update #205, with a very busy weekend...

Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, as well as to Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week, and It's Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted by Kathryn @ Book Date.

It ended up being another busy week last week, but a good one too. My kids were home early all week from school and were so much happier. School makes them tired and grouchy. This weekend was busy with my car in the shop with its radiator needing to be replaced, my husband gone most of the day for a scouting camporee, my youngest coming down with a bad head cold, and trying to do some prep for our upcoming vacation. I still felt like I accomplished some things though. 

I cleaned out my inbox. It had gotten out of control with thousands of emails (I don't even want to tell you the number!), making it difficult to make sure I didn't miss anything important. I actually got it down to zero with about 100 organized to two folders that I'll be going through tomorrow, so I'm quite pleased. I did a thorough cleaning early last year during Bloggiesta, but then it got crazy when I was really busy and then went on vacation last summer and I never seemed to get it back under control. I decided I didn't want to come back from vacation with it feeling impossible to catch up, so I'm taking preventative measures. ;)

Regardless of my busy schedule, it was still a fun week of posts and I'm super excited about the books I get to share with you this week...

I'm participating in Mini Blog Ahead and doing well with it. I'm hoping to have most of March scheduled before I go on vacation in another week. See. Preventative measures. ;) You can see my status here.

I've been hosting a meme called Can't-Wait Wednesday that is taking over for my Waiting on Wednesday posts since the host, Jill over at Breaking the Spine, went inactive in August. You're welcome to join in or link up your Waiting on Wednesday posts each week. Find out more here.

The Instagram challenge, #WishfulWonder, that Rissi over at Finding Wonderland and I are hosting for March has just begun! You can find more info here (feel free to still participate at any time, be it a day or two or more). I'm actually behind, but will be catching up tomorrow.

What's up with you?
