Stacking the Shelves (14)

Stacking the

A weekly meme hosted by Tynga Reviews where we list all the books that we have either borrowed, purchased or reviewing! So this week was good in a sense that I didn’t buy a lot nor did I request any new books to review though I did finally get to the local library and get a library card. That was my downfall is going to the library and seeing all these books that I want to read when I need to be reviewing upcoming books. Oops. Covers=Goodreads Green=Goodreads Pink=links to blogs

Review via Netgalley

My Life

Summer has finally come! Spring has been skipped and we just went straight into 70s-80s temperature! I’m sooo not complaining now that winter is finally over though 2 years ago during Memorial Day weekend it snowed!!! UGH! I’m hoping that doesn’t happen this year. I wore my first dress of the season this past week and I was so happy.

Work has been busy. Summer tourist season is almost upon us but the museum has been extremely slow due to the good weather. I’m trying to get camp, guides program, and other kamp ready plus teach classes, do an after school program and planetarium shows. Then I found out my boss is going to Africa for 2 weeks!! How cool is that! SO jealous but at the same time she is leaving me behind during our first busy weeks of the summer!! AHHHH!! I just gotta keep telling myself that I can do it! I can do it!!
