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.
This week has flown by, and it appears as if my wish that the last few weeks of school do just that has come true. My students took their end-of-the-year science test, and then on Thursday we went sailing. It was a wonderful day, and the kids had a blast. Next week they get tested on Language Arts and Math, and then there will be three more weeks left. If these past weeks are any indication, I believe the last 19 days will be over before I know it.
I received some good stuff in the mail this week. After using a personal planner for the past two months, I’ve begun to miss my Erin Condren, and writing in a larger planner. So, I ordered an A5 Kikki-K, unsprayed my ECLP, and put it into my new planner I’m loving it, and kind of wish I had done that from the get go. While I love my personal planner, and how I’ve set it up, the A5 is just easier for me to use. As of now I’m using them both. The personal planner for personal stuff, and the A5 for all business related things. That way I can take it to work, without worrying someone my see my private info. We’ll see how long that works.

excited for… / watching…
My current addiction is Marvel Unlimited. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a comics subscription service Marvel offers for $9.99/month, and allows you to read their comics… unlimited. Like, Kindle Unlimited for Marvel titles. I’m enjoying a free first month, and love it, so I’ll most likely continue my subscription after the free trial is over. I’ve been reading comics for years, but I’ve had to slow my roll as my comic addiction was actually more expensive than my book addiction. Now I can catch up on all the stories I’ve halfway read through the years due to economics. I’m also loving it, because I can read a comic while I have downtime, and since they’re short I can finish them in one sitting. I don’t know why it took so long for me to subscribe, but I’m happy I did. If I stay addicted through the summer, I’ll probably upgrade to the yearly plan. It’s cheaper in the long run, and you get some cool swag.
