--- AVR News Update ---
Hello and Happy Sunday!

On the Home Front: I'm scrambling. Trip's birthday is Friday. Kyle graduates Sunday and that's also Father's Day. And I'm leaving for Ohio on Monday the 18th to go visit my parents. Anna and Trip are going with me. I'll be gone a week (Anna and Trip are staying for a couple weeks), so I not only need to get ready for a trip, but I need to make sure hubby and Kyle don't starve or live off fast food while I'm gone. I also need to drop Anna's car off this week to the mechanic to fix some issues. There's also appt's people need to get to, prescriptions need to be filled, and I need to do some shopping. Oh, and I'd really like to wash the Pilot and vacuum it out before we leave. So, yeah. I'm stressed.

Touching Nature: It's June. That's about all I've got. Oh! I did mow, but no other touching of Nature.

Book News: I've managed to read some books, but now I have 8 or 9 reviews to write. I'm pretty much taking the rest of June off from the blog. I just don't have time for it right now.

Don't Touch That Dial!: Trip and I started The Flash Season 3. I'm not sure we'll get through it before we leave for Ohio.

At the Flicks: We saw Solo and thought it was pretty good. Not sure why it's doing so bad at the box office.

Cyberspace Playground: I've been reporting book stuffers as often as I have time. I really had no idea this was even a thing until recently. And now that I do know I'm pissed. What fucking scum these scammers are!


Carol's Nuggets of Wisdom: There's never enough time to do everything, so do what you can and fuck the rest. Just kidding. Do that when you can, too.

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

  1. Love your Carole’s Nugget of Wisdom!!! Lol

    Hope you have a great week, it sure sounds like it will be a busy one.

  2. I read your on the home front fast so now I am stressed for you! :)
    Your Nugget is awesome! and I love the interview! LMAO

    I hope you have an awesome week, Carol! Happy Reading!

  3. Hahaha! I'm so with you... Fuck the rest. Seriously.

    Good luck, I'm just coming down from a week with that kind of stress, so I know the feeling. You will survive, but gah does it suck!

    Enjoy taking a break - sometimes that's the only way. Have a great week :)

  4. Been a stressful week for me too, for all sorts of reasons. I hope next week will be better for us both!

    The cat joke is hilarious and so true :D

  5. Pre-trip activities are crazy. We start our vacation on the 18th too. Ha, yes I need to make sure my son has everything he needs before I leave too. Hope this week is a good one..busy it seems but good.

  6. Wow, you’ve got a lot going on. I hope it all works out for you. I love that randomness. Have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  7. Don't forget to take a deep breath! I've been burned by a couple KU authors, I get so angry when I read a book and it ends at 30%. I don't know how to report them. I'll have to figure out how to do that. Anyway, have a safe trip!

  8. What's a book stuffer? Sounds painful :)
