On life, On Books, On Blogging

In our house, we are finishing our 3rd week of the school year--my daughter started full-day kindergarten in August and my son started preschool 2 days a week this past week.  This is the first time since I quit working that I had a hard and fast schedule and, to tell you the truth, I love it!  

I love knowing that there is a framework to our day and I think the kids find comfort in it as well,  This is not to say that we lived a loosey-goosey lifestyle before August 26th, but our days were definitely more open.  This past summer was especially un-scheduled as my husband (who is positively not a routine person!) was on sabbatical and we were out of town for an extended period of time.

But, with every positive change there are a few "opportunity costs."  For me, it has been decreased reading time.  I'm still reading, of course, but not nearly as much as I had been and far less than I would like.  The hours in my day are limited and I've learned that I need to prioritize things, namely sleep, over reading if I want to be able to function.  So, on that note, I just want to give you a heads up that the rate of reviews on this blog will slow a bit--at least until figure out how to add some hours into my day!  I will still be reviewing books, of course, and my "regular" posts, such Saturday Snapshot and Monthly Wrap-Ups will continue as usual.

I do, however, want this blog to be something more.  I started out as a lifestyle blogger and I think I want to dip my toe back into that.  I've attempted secondary blogs in the past but maintaining multiple blogs isn't ideal for me.  Since book reviews will be slightly fewer and far between here, I thought I might expand the scope of this blog to include, well, other things.

Let me reiterate: there will still be book reviews!  Saturday Snapshot is staying!  There will just be more--some of which won't be book related.  If you'd rather not read "all that other stuff," but wish to stay in the loop with book reviews, you can always follow my Pinterest Board for this blog, where I pin all my book reviews. 

So, you can all look forward to peek into other parts of my life...as run-of-the-mill as they may be!
