Weekly Update #219, Cleaning house...

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 ReviewerTynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Mailbox Monday 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.

I've spent the past two weeks cleaning house. Not regular cleaning, but deep cleaning and organizing. My plan is to get rid of the things we don't use/need and the kid things that the kids have outgrown. 

We also got new furniture in our family room. It's our first nice set that we actually care about and so the kids have to treat them well. It feels like a new stage that our kids are actually old enough that we can get a nicer set. 

I've literally spent from sunup to past sundown going through everything and crashing exhausted into bed each night. I've rarely been online and haven't been reading either. I really wanted to read a book Saturday. Was actually craving a good book, but didn't get to it. So, Sunday I'm planning on doing some serious reading. Monday I'll start back with the last room I have to go through and then it will be on to the garage, which has never been thoroughly organized in this house, so I have quite a hill to conquer, quite literally.

But, back to reading... Here's what to expect on the blog:

Roar (Stormheart, #1)Love on PointeObsidian and Stars (Ivory and Bone, #2)
The Year of Four (Phoebe Pope, #1)The Blood of Kings (Phoebe Pope, #2)Julia Defiant (Witch's Child, #2)Internet Famous
