Went to our used bookstore that is part of our public library. I behaved myself. Two books on the left are my sons picks and the other two are mine which were already on my TBR. My daughter also picked out four books but she was upstairs with them to fast.

Change of scenery this morning. Waiting for my sons class to get here for their end-of-the-year picnic. I came early to read before they got here.

Hoping to finish this book today. It‘s been pretty good.

Gissy No problem! 🤗 5mo
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie did you send this months package? On my mail app I have a package that I think is from you that is running late. It was supposed to be delivered on the first and now says running late. It has not had an update since the 1st so not sure what is going on with it. 4mo
ElizaMarie @MommyOfTwo yes, I did. It said you should have gotten it on Tuesday last week! I will search my car for the receipt (I assumed you got it a long time ago) 3mo
See All 19 Comments
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie I can check with my post office and see what they say. If worse comes to worse I‘ll buy a new copy of the book to send on. 3mo
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie that‘s also why I make sure to post when I get it so that you know. 3mo
ElizaMarie @MommyOfTwo yeah I was confused that you hadn‘t posted yet :( 3mo
ElizaMarie I looked at my debit card app and it says I mailed on May 26. Tomorrow I‘ll thoroughly clean under my car seats to see if I can find the receipt 3mo
ElizaMarie So I looked it up… says it‘s delayed by a billion years!!! Track # 9505 5153 9292 2146 3348 97 (edited) 3mo
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie I called the post office today and she told me the container it‘s in has a bunch of tracking numbers that haven‘t been delivered and she is guessing that they are short staffed where it is. She said to give it to the end of this week and if it‘s not here we could start a recovery search for it. Also if you could tell me the book so I can see if my library has it and I can get it read sooner. (edited) 3mo
ElizaMarie I tagged you to the book 3mo
ElizaMarie Did you ever get it? 3mo
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie no I haven‘t. It looks like it hasn‘t moved yet so I am going to give the post office a call again tomorrow or Friday to see if they can start a recovery on it. 3mo
ElizaMarie Ugh I‘m so sorry about that! That really is frustrating!!! 3mo
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie it‘s ok, it‘s not your fault 3mo
MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie so I called the post office today, last week got away from me. They said an insurance claim could be started on it but it would be easier for you as the sender to do it. You have to go on to the website so do it I guess. 3mo
MommyOfTwo @Mommamanzi I don‘t know if you have been seeing these messages or not, I‘m guessing you haven‘t. The last package that was sent to me is stuck somewhere along the way and has been since the beginning of June. I am ordering a new copy of the book to get sent on to the next person. 3mo
ElizaMarie @MommyOfTwo I‘ll work at it tomorrow (working today) 3mo
ElizaMarie So I looked online and it told me it was not eligible for an inquiry , calling now 3mo

Holy cow @ElizaMarie I am blown away by this first #CBBC box. Thank you so much for all the extra goodies! (I think I got them all in the picture) Hope you are getting through the storm ok. We have a snow storm headed here in Wisconsin at the end of the week but we are used to it. My son is hooding for some good packing snow, we haven‘t really gotten good stuff for snowmen this year.

So I read 300 pages of this and decided to take a break and read something else. I‘m glad I did because now I seem to be reading it faster. My goal is to have it done by the end of the year if not sooner. 28 1/2 pages a day will keep me at that goal. As of now I am ahead of schedule.
#reread

keys_on_fire I have tried to read this so many times, as I have had it recommended and it‘s on so many reading bucket lists. I would love to attempt it again and wondered if you think there‘s any particular ‘way‘ I should read this or how far into the story I need to hang in there before I would give up again. Any insights appreciated! 10mo
MommyOfTwo @keys_on_fire I‘m not really sure. Like I said I took a break around page 300. This is a reread for me. The first time I read it straight through. There are some long boring parts so that‘s when it becomes tough. 10mo

I keep coming across this word lately.

gre·gar·i·ous
/ɡrəˈɡerēəs/

(of a person) fond of company; sociable.
"he was a popular and gregarious man"

(of animals) living in flocks or loosely organized communities.
"gregarious species forage in flocks from colonies or roosts"

(of plants) growing in open clusters or in pure associations.
"in the wild, trees are usually gregarious plants"
