Bring in the clowns and Thrill Week II

I’ve struggled to get into a reading groove this year.  Gage is way more active and my time is spent keeping him busy, finding things and places to go to keep him busy, and spending some time with Jason.  But, Jill had a series of clown posts that I read altogether (because I am currently about 2 1/2 weeks behind on my blog hopping) and I thought in a moment of insanity that, yes, yes I could read the 1000+ pages Stephen King novel IT by mid October.  So, it looks like I will be falling even further behind in my blog reading (although maybe that will prevent me from signing up for more things I don’t have time for).  Sorry, blame Jill.

If you are interesting in joining other crazy, clown loving folk visit Jill and Christina and sign up for the IT-along.  There may even be a clown nose in it for you.

Another fun September event that ties in nicely with the IT read along is Thrill Week over at Tea Time with Marce.  Marce did a fantastic job last year and I’m looking forward to seeing what she’s got up her sleeve this year.  If you like mysteries, thrillers, or horror I encourage you to go check it out.

So that’s what I’ve got planned in September.  Anyone know of a good babysitter so I have time to read and blog?

    If I lived near you, I’d take sweet little Gage for a few hours each week. Don’t stress over reading and blogging – you’re doing the right thing spending your time with your family.

    I tried a IT read along but couldn’t keep up either. Thanks for posting about Thrill Week. Don’t forget to link up.

    Spend the time with the boy child and you’ll find the balance with the blog again when the time is right. And aren’t you brave reading It? ‘d be so terrified that I’d never get sleep and a sleep deprived mom of a small one is never a good plan (at least it never was for me).

    I’m attempting the It-along with a strong emphasis on “attempting.” I couldn’t resist signing up, but I may have made a mistake. Oh well…sometimes you have to take the plunge, however crazy it is. See you around the It-along, hopefully. 😉

    IT is so good. I can’t wait to hear what you think about it. I’m amazed you have time to read at all with a little one at home.
