Weekly Geeks #18

I really should be studying but I have just too much energy. So I’ve been doing everything else: taking care of the kids, cleaning the house, daydreaming . . . I’ll get to studying soon. I think the kids feel the same way because I asked them to take a nap hours ago and they’re still up. I give up.
This week’s Weekly Geeks is about catching up. Catch up on whatever it is you need to catch up on: book reviews, TBR pile, library books . . .
So this week I will be catching up on a number of things.
At last count I was signed up for about thirty challenges. Now with school and everything else in my life, I think I will cut my challenges down to about five total for the rest of the year. I have a challenges notebook that I use so I can remember what challenge deadlines are coming up and what books to read but it still feels like a chore. So I am going to go through my notebook and my five favorite ones I will keep.
I also need to update my TBR pile. I am so tired of looking at my TBR bookcase. I need to start reading the books now and give them away. I will definitely be giving some away for Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon in October. If you haven’t heard of this great challenge already, go on over to The Hidden Side of the Leaf and read all about it.

I also need to catch up on my homework. I have a ton of classes and for the last two weeks on and off I have been sick. It’s crazy having the flu and it’s about 80 degrees today in California. If I haven’t been the sick one then it’s been one of the kids. So “catch up” will be my new name for the next week.

Wish me luck.

    Good luck! Just being a parent is hard enough, throw going to school on top and you really have your hands full- I know! And I like the way your blog looks, it’s the way I am hoping to get mine, streamlined and easier to read.

    Thank you!

    Good luck!

    Cutting back on challenges sounds like a good idea, going by how much you seem to have to do. So many of them tempt me, but I try to avoid them because I know that they will become a burden rather than being fun. I look foward to seeing which ones you choose to keep.

    My TBR shelf is driving me nuts too, I think I will weed out some and drop them at the local bookcrossing zone.
    The weather here in Nova Scotia has been kicking our buts also, hot hot hot in the day, but freezing at night, so both my kids have the snuffles.
    Best of luck with your catch-up🙂

    I’m only in two challenges right now, and I’m having a hard enough time keeping up with them – I can’t imagine being in thirty!🙂 Good luck, and I hope you feel better.

    Good Luck! I haven’t posted for Weekly Geeks yet (this will be my first) but organizing my challenges, including paring them down, will be on my list!

    Thanks everyone!

    I had to cut back on challenges this year too. It can get to be too much.
