A Charmed Week 1/25-1/31

In My Life

Every time I come to write a weekly update, I want to include a little bit of news about my life.  And every week I am reminded that I am pretty boring.  The spending freeze has hit a few hiccups, but the book buying ban is going strong.

One of my good friend’s is going through some crazy relationship drama, so my main group of friends (Who all live in NY while I’m 4 hours away in Baltimore) decided to have a girls weekend Valentines Day Weekend.  And WE’RE GOING TO FLORIDA! Just from 2/11-2/15 (Yay for President’s day long weekends!).

My 86 year old grandfather has a house in Florida that he never goes to (because he is still working!!) so the Aunts and grandkids get to use it a lot for free.  It’s basically a retirement community but it’s Boca Raton and it’s free so you won’t hear me complaining! My BFF also wants to take the 3 hour drive up to Orlando to go to Harry Potter World for the Day.  I tried to convince her that it would be better to try and do all 4 Disney parks in one day, but the other two have never been to HP world.  So I’m sad about not being able to go to Disney, but I guess I am outnumbered.

Have I mentioned my obsession with Disney World?  I plan fake vacations to Disney about every 2 weeks and have seriously researched my next trip, which will take place in May of 2017 after my BF graduates Law school.  He doesn’t want to go.  But he doesn’t really get a choice.

I’m not really sure.  I don’t really have anything planned. Ususally I have at least a few posts scheduled, but at this moment I don’t think I do.  I’ve been off my reading game, but hopefully I will figure something out. 

One of my goals for this year was to expand beyond the YA age group, so as you can see by the books I took out of the library, I’m trying.

I have a few ideas about monthly features for different genres, but it probably won’t happen for awhile.

  1. Yay for Florida, sounds like a fun trip! Maybe you can talk them into Disney… 🙂

    I’m glad I read your review of Starflight as I was thinking of reading that. I’ve seen mixed reviews, so I don’t know… maybe I’ll wait. I was hoping for better worldbuilding I think, and I’m not crazy about endings like that.

    Have a great week!

  2. My life feels a bit boring too when I get around to the weekly posts. But the trip to Florida sounds great and something to look forward to!

    My niece (19.5yrs) LOVES Disney and has travelled to the US Disney/s (I’ve got no idea) many MANY times from Australia. She’s also been to Tokyo Disney and Paris Disney. In fact… her dream has been to work at a Disney and that dream will come true when she heads to Shanghai Disney when it opens as a few months. (She’s got a gig as a Princess!)
