That’s a Wrap- July Edition

thats a wrap

“That’s a Wrap” is my new Monthly wrap up post. I will be linking up the Sunday post.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Long time to see, eh?

A few weeks ago, I did a quick update on what has been going on around the home front – and why I have been scarce this month. I was hoping once we got back into the swing of things, I could get back into my schedule and things would be perfect.


School starts next week (can you even believe it!?) so we have been trying to figure out our dreaded daycare situation. Since my oldest will be heading off to middle school – and he gets out almost two afters after the elementary – it’s a stressful situation. It’s coming together, just slowly. Work too, has been a mad house scramble. I don’t want to bore you with the details, but I usually end my day pissy and even more stressed.

My oldest will be turning 11 in a few days! I can’t believe it. I feel so OLD.

On another note, my Avon business is starting to pick up. This was supposed to be a small, side thing to earn extra money, but it is growing and a little bit more time-consuming then it was 7 years ago when I did it. Anyway, if you love Avon or want to try some of their products, be sure to shop my site. There is direct delivery, so you can order anytime and have it shipped to you! 🙂

Oh, and I bought a car.

On the blog – obviously things were slow and I haven’t made many posts. With the new blog too. Like I said, things will get back to normal soon. In the mean time, my commenting may be minimal and my reviews too.

The Books for a Cause auction is still going! There are MANY items still available to bid on, so make sure you head over and place yours!

Wrapping it up! Here’s what went down in July!

    Wow! Your month looks so busy. Between kids, blog, job and etc etc.

    I saw you signed for Audiobook Challenge… what have you been listened recently? I’m so obsessed with audiobooks right now, I finish one and start another, is a new addiction.

    My favorites narrators are Sebastian York & Jason Carpenter. and yours?
