Happy Friday everyone! What a long week! I have been ready for the weekend since Monday even though I have to work on Saturday which stinks royally. Yuck :/ But looking at these three smiling faces always makes it worth it. This picture was taken a couple of Sundays ago before the Bears game. I wish you guys knew how hard it is to get them all three sitting still long enough for a good picture. It's ones like these that make me laugh though :) Priceless! So I just keep snapping these shots because you never know what you are going to get. (And I have no clue what my youngest was looking at if you are wondering).
I'm thinking about unplugging at some point in the next few days. Ideally it would be starting today, but as the idea has just come to me it isn't going to happen that way. I'm thinking that I could find the time to write up a few reviews and schedule them for next week, and then just back away from the computer and internet for a bit. I find myself browsing the internet and talking on Twitter for WAY too many hours in the day. I have guests coming for Thanksgiving (including my sister...yay!) and I really, really need my house to at least be presentable. Maybe even clean. I have high hopes...but I also have three children who don't seem to know what the word clean means. And maybe this will allow for some extra reading time which I can always use :) Less computer time and more books sounds like a good plan of action to me! So there is my goal for the next two days: write up a few reviews, maybe an e-book post, and then step away from the computer for awhile which will allow for me to come back feeling refreshed.
In other reading news, I'm also planning on participating in Thankfully Reading Weekend next week which will be my only exception to the computer ban. Obviously I'm going to want to jump on Twitter a few times during the weekend and share what I'm reading. I think that is the whole point, isn't it?? It should be lots of fun. I'm not planning out what I want to read or how much...instead I'll be playing it by ear and just reading as much as I can. Besides I'm going to want to spend lots of time with my family because I don't get to see them enough as it is. It is going to be so nice to have everyone together! That's enough out of me for today. I think I'll go work on those reviews I want to write. May I wish you all a very early Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Unplugging for awhile sounds like a good idea! Happy Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete

I am considering doing the weekend reading, too. I have been very slack lately...ReplyDelete
I think they are completely adorable! I love moments like this and it reminded me of when I tried to get a family shot of my brother's kids when his youngest was 18 months old..that was hilarious!!ReplyDelete
Happy Unplugging and Happy Thanksgiving!
It's tough enough getting one babe to look at the camera--I can't imagine how would get three to look AND smile!ReplyDelete
I hope you're able to unplug a bit. With all my travels lately I've been feeling out of touch but sometimes it is nice to step away. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. :)
Unplugging every once and a while is nice! So glad you are unplugging long enough to join us for Thankfully Reading Weekend!ReplyDelete
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving, Samantha! Hope you're enjoying your visit with your sister.. that sounds so nice. :) xoReplyDelete
Wow! I just now realized how behind I am on commenting back. Yikes! I did have a wonderful week away from the computer. I always find it refreshing when I do this. Thanks ladies!!!ReplyDelete
