I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

life outside the ‘net
This week was parent/teacher conference week, and boy was I pooped. The kids are trying to change their behavior, and for the most part have been doing a good job. With early dismissal all week, you’d think I would have had more energy, but I didn’t. Most nights I was passed out before 9:30 PM. The bright side is I fixed up my room before I left for Thanksgiving break, so that’s a load off my mind. Phew!
Today I leave to go up north to spend the holiday with family. I’m excited! I packed Friday, so hopefully I won’t forget anything. While I packed I marathoned Netflix’s newest series, Jessica Jones. It’s really good! I never read the comics, so I wasn’t very familiar with the story. I love how Netflix is showing all of the grittier comic storylines that might not have been as successful on the big screen due to them not being as popular as The Avengers, Iron Man, etc. Plus, those films tend to have more comedy in them, then the ones appearing on Netflix. I like that, because the storylines are grittier and geared more towards adults. The cast does a great job, and the storytelling is pretty great. Plus, I love how seamlessly it fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking place after the events in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
