Weekly Wrap-up for October 16, 2011: Busy, Busy, Busy.

I am in the midst of chaos. I don't know how else to explain the insanity that has taken over my life. Sorry to say, my lowly blog has been placed on the back-burner for a little while...and it might need to stay there until the end of this week.

In addition to conferences at school, grading 60 memoir projects (I have 10 done and I have had them nearly a week-not good), preparing for our band concert on Tuesday night, regular cleaning and living, sleeping, taking on the student council class this week....well, I also have reading commitments that I am trying to make. I am almost done with Dracula so a post will be going up by the end of the week for my Group Read (the link-up post will be up shortly after this one). I also need to start and finish Inferno this week.

Perhaps I am just insane.

At any rate, life is busy and chaotic. I didn't get anything productive done yesterday-we went to the bar to watch the football game, spent time with Matt's family to see how his step-dad is doing with the chemo, and went grocery shopping. No papers were cleaning was done.

That's okay. Just means more to do today...

Bah. I don't know. I feel like I have things to say, but I am tired and have a mile-long list of things to take care of today.

Hope you are all doing well. When my life returns to "normalcy," I hope you'll all forgive me.

(and there are only 6 more weeks in my long-term subbing assignment-WHERE has the time gone?)

Happy Reading.


  1. I procrastinated so long on grading papers and projects that MIDTERM finally made me kick my butt in gear. :)

  2. I don't know how you keep up! Seriously!

  3. Wow, you have been busy!! I don't know how you kept on top of everything.

  4. Insane? No! I'd say high functioning!
    But..."I also need to start and finish Inferno
    this week," ?? I mean, Inferno is not Dracula. Why not save Dante until you have more time. Anyway, your lit-blog is one of the best.

  5. It sounds like busy is an understatement! If it makes you feel better, when I read Paradiso last year, I read the bulk of it in a week or so and I would say that Inferno is an easier read than the former. And we won't grumble if your posts aren't up right on time! Good luck with all your busyness!

  6. I SOOOO understand "busy" -- evidenced by my late response to this post. ;-) Take it easy, Allie!
