September’s Movies & Life update

Sadly, I did not complete my 30 books in 30 days challenge this year.  I’ll be posting a few of the reasons why on the challenge blog shortly, but the big two are house related.  The place by the lake we’ve been staying for over two months kicked us out a month early due to them finding someone to rent the place for six months 😦  So, yesterday we moved our stuff back into my parent’s condo.  The upside is that I am now 5 minutes from home, not 30.  As for the house itself, one day last week I had an outside crew, a gutter grew and mold crew all here at the same time and 2 guys came to interview for the drywall job.  And I fed them, lol.  Anyhoo, just trying to keep my head above water.  I read 25 books and I’m considering that a win!
