AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! 

I hope this day finds everyone well. I've been enjoying my little break and have been reading and reading. However, I know find myself procrastinating with the Writing of the Reviews. I have 16 to write, more if I count the Anita Blake books I was rereading, but I may or may not write those up. I've also been trying to fix my Excel Review spreadsheet as I've gotten a tad lax with it. Ok, I've totally slacked off with it. In addition, I've been drafting posts for August, many of which now only need the review added. *wipes forehead* Whew! I will be attempting some review writing today. *fingers crossed*

In other news, I've decided to give myself a little challenge for the month of September (as if I needed any more). I have an Amazon gift card balance (now a bit depleted) and decided I would buy 30~99¢ books and post a mini review for each day of September. I have 17 books and need 13 more. If you know of a good book that's 99¢ on Amazon please be sure to recommend it in the comments. I've listed the ones I've already purchased in My Shelf Additions and I admit it's a bit heavy on the erotica. *cough* 

To wrap things up, there are now 5 weeks left of summer break. Senior pictures are this coming week and the kids have to knuckle down and do some summer projects for high school. Fun. Not. We have yet to look at colleges for Anna or practice driving so she can get her license. I guess we need to step things up. School supplies have been in the stores and I don't even want to think about that shit yet. I want to enjoy the time off, dammitall! *sigh*

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

I'm afraid I went a little nuts with the freebies. 
Must have been the adrenaline from the 99¢ purchases.
Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!
*ahem*
Anyway, there's no way to list them all, but here's a few.

Even though I've been collecting freebies for a few months, this is the 1st one I've read. lol

AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! 

It's been two weeks since my last confession, um, I mean, update. We rushed around getting things ready for our trip to Ohio to pick up the kids which meant packing and cleaning & stocking the house in prep for our daughter, son-in-law and grandbaby who house and beast sat for us while we were gone. We were ginormously appreciative since the boarding for 6 beasts is not cheap. We left on Weds 7/2 and then we were traveling, visiting, traveling, visiting and traveling again. Nearly 1200 miles in 5 days. That's not too bad, right? *thud* As always, it was wonderful seeing family, but I (and my ass) was beginning to hate that van. When the hell are Matter Transporters going to be invented?!

In other news, the air conditioner has been working like the new trooper it is. It's been so hot and humid it really sucks. However, our tomato plants are looking pretty good, the jalapeƱo plants are really getting tall and the watermelon plants are doing so-so. The mint I have in pots look pretty good and I'll need to pick some and try in some tea. Good news is since I planted marigolds and mint around the raised bed I haven't seen any intruder bugs (yes, I'm talking about you, you bastard stinkbugs) subjecting devastion on my Precious Ones (tomato plants). Victory is mine!

In addition, it seems like we've been on the go a lot and hubby's vacay is coming to an end. He's hating having to go back to work Monday after having 13 days off. Supernatural marathons continue and we've blown through Season 6 (seriously Cas?!) and are well into Season 7 (Leviathans, hate them). We need to slow down. We're running out of road! We discussed what to watch next cuz I know we won't slow down. lol Maybe we'll go back and finish Lost (starting from the beginning) or try Grimm. I wish Netflix had NCIS. We've been wanting to watch that one for awhile now.

To wrap things up: We've had a wonderful time with one more event for tonight (Saturday). We're going to Pure Pro Wrestling (I've mentioned we've been to a few other events) where we'll get to see friends and have fun. Then tomorrow (or today since this is the Sunday Post)...we rest for next week starts the usual daily grind again (except for school).

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.
