Time: // 8: 00 a.m. Damn Daylight Savings time. I’m exhausted. At least I have some coffee.
The scene: // Sitting in my living room, most of the kids are asleep. The sun is shining and there are some awesome clouds in the sky.
Listening to: // “Out of My League” by Fitz and the Tantrums. Thanks to Bryan for the suggestion. Thanks to everyone for their music suggestions last week.

I tried to pick some diverse reads, ranging from format (Woman Rebel and Maus are graphic novels) to experience. I’m currently reading L.A. Son, a foodie memoir, and Out of the Woods. I’m really enjoying both of them.
Blogging about: // everything! I had one of those rare urges to write my ass off this week. I wrote graphic novels reviews, a review of The Perfect Score by Debbie Steir, and a wrap-up of my February reading.
Promoting: // Andi’s Book Nook guest post over on Relentless Reader. Since rearranging my apartment, I no longer have a book nook but it’s nice to look at everyone else’s.
Also promoting: // When the Universe Ain’t Talking by QuinnCreative. I’ve been in a rut for a while now and this post came at a perfect time. It’s about when you have to wait for an answer from the Universe and you just.can’t.wait.
You should also read: // Buried in Print’s Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi.
Now I’m off to: // relax a bit before I spend the day doing homework.
What are you up to today? Any suggestions on how to get out of a rut?
