•Finish last 300 pages of Little Cruelties;
•Start and finish the Barnes club book Our Country Friends(?) about 340 pages.

#DailyCheckin #ReadAThon and way excited about being a #MistletoeManiac @Clwojick

This is the 1st #readathon that I get to ‘thon! Long weekend, been working hard, & getting 1st half of microchip today. Is the waiting after to ping the device? Is there an app? Do I get a sticker? Am I a commie, now? Anyway, only goals are read, dishes, workouts, church. And I do have to go easy on myself after submitting to that process. The goal this time is 140 pages a day to finish two of those books, and stay caught up in the other.

bthegood The idea that they are just driving, choose a different route, and then this surreal thing....it seems normal, a town, police but it's all wrong. Then the characters start thinking, if only we had taken a different route, and then they think how just an hour ago their life was ordinary. It's creepy because we could be driving down the road and get pulled over.🙂 @CaffeineAndCandy (edited) 10mo

Using the #ProgressItNovember #readathon to finish Moby Dick (classics series), Harry Potter 5 (my #PotterADay series), and Courting Darkness (the first of a series). That is today‘s #dailycheckin 💖

Andrew65 Great goals, good luck 😍 13mo
GHABI4ROSES Still tracking, @Andrew65 @Lesanne @Squidget @SusanOrnelas65 ❣️ Not a lot of reading required, if I read 10 pages a day of each of those three books, I will be done by 04 December. So much less than my dreams of 50-100 pages a day, but being busy blessed is just as well💖 (edited) 13mo
Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES Every journey starts with the first step! Every little bit helps that journey. 13mo

Getting ready to end a week where... wait for it... I PUT MYSELF FIRST!? Got rest. Got exercise. Yes, got behind in work. Yes, behind on house cleaning. But adding one thing back at a time, & encourage all to do the SAME❣️

Cheers to Amanda for bedtimes👏🏾

Celebrating with you all by truly embracing the #24B4MONDAY #readathon & the #dewey.

Lofty Goals (complex styles):
📚Finish Frankenstein;
📚Read 200 more pages of Moby Dick.

#dailycheckin as I continue to make gains on the catch ups! Feeling Family Dynamic shift: two of my college kids who returned home WITH their long-term partners had break ups this week. I am (ALMOST) bored with not cooking for 7 every day! Prayers for peace that surpasses understanding; I see them emotionally powering through already. My two kids in the break-ups are only 19 months apart, so they will just go back to getting in trouble together😂

Andrew65 Nice to hear from you ❤️ 13mo
Lesanne Thank you for still including me in your check ins! I haven‘t been on here in a few weeks so it‘s really nice to still be thought about. 🥰 13mo
GHABI4ROSES You are in my Daily @Lesanne @Andrew65 @Squidget @SusanOrnelas65 and I am looking forward to the 24B4/ Dewey weekend💖 13mo

#DAILYCHECKIN despite the gaps; almost at Exam Day, then I get to spend every day with my beloved Littens! Really excited for #24B4MONDAY #READATHON, even though I keep cheesing out on logging the hours/ pages. Have a blessed day!

(Photo for any California #BarExam takers, totally my mode right now. It will be...interesting.)

Not gonna lie, I am mega stressed and overwhelmed, despite knowing that GOD DOES HAVE ME #dailycheckin 🙏🏾💖

Andrew65 This is a great post, I always know I do my best work under pressure and when stressed but body always knows about it afterwards. The world is under great pressure at the moment but hopefully something strong and positive will come out of it. Necessity is the mother of invention. Hang in there @GHABI4ROSES we‘ve got your back and will always be here for you. 🥰 This too will pass. 😊 (edited) 1y
