Well another year is done. I didn’t get to finish my book challenge this year but it’s all good. I read more books than I did last year, even with struggling with morning sickness and now being tired and needing lots of rest for the end of my pregnancy. I’m glad that I finished 37 books. My goal last year was only 24 and I thought from the start that 40 was too optimistic. I really wanted to finish it but my baby is definitely a good excuse not to. Tomorrow I can officially say that I’m having a baby this month. It’s seemed like a long journey and I still have a little over 3 weeks left to go.
I have to decide how many books I’ll challenge myself to read next year but with a new baby I won’t be setting such as optimistic goal this time. For the first 1/3 of the year I may get to finish a lot but after that I’ll be back to work and getting home at 6, taking care of baby and my family, if I’m lucky I may get 1/2 hour to read. I’ll definitely work on getting my little one into a bed time schedule during her first few months.
I’m almost finished with Season 2 of Arrow. It’s gotten interesting and we finally see how Oliver ends up with his dragon tattoo like the one Shado has. However, the characters have been getting a bit annoying, especially since the “Arrow Club” is growing.
View Spoiler »There’s so much going on. I don’t want to give the big spoilers but Laurel’s a pill addict and a drunk. The Villain for this season is an old friend of Oliver, and Moira is still keeping a crazy secret that in this case I kinda agree should have just stayed a secret since there is no good that can possibly come from it. « Hide Spoiler
I believe we will be finishing this season up this weekend and moving on to Stargate Atlantis. We need to get that done.
We also got Netflix which has all the Charmed Seasons. I’m pretty excited about that. Call me crazy but I loved that show. I watched all the episodes while on Maternity leave with my son 11 years ago. I am planning to do it again this time 🙂 Especially because no one will be home to complain that I’m watching it. They also have a great collection of shows so I can and will be getting into some new ones. Since I’m not in the US the store doesn’t get the new shows right away, instead I will have to wait till the season is done but I like to binge watch so that shouldn’t be a problem.
Anyway, thanks for following the blog over the last year. Best wishes for the New Year and new things to come!
