Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they've encountered during the week, etc.). 

1) We are going camping this weekend. Like real-in-a-tent camping. There are bears there. I am somewhat scared. Have you heard all the news reports about bears getting into people's cars and eating everything and/or destroying the cars??? My husband assures me we will be, ok?!? We are also going with a "hard-core" camping family. I am about as far from a "hard-core-camper" as anyone could ever be. This should be interesting. On the plus side, the leaves should be beautiful!! (Is it wrong to hope that my phone gets service there?!?! Haha!) 

2) I need to start some countdowns...surely they will help my sanity through difficult times. I need a countdown to Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, Disney Princess 1/2 trip, Spring Break and finally, Summer. While I hate wishing my life away, I am glad that September is over with!! Seriously!!

3) I seriously need to get back to scrapbooking...just before school started I made mega progress with Project Life, getting within 1 month of the current date. Well, now I'm 2 months behind again. Then #weekinthelife happened, which is my most favorite project each year and I have yet to finish my album....which is odd, because I've always been good at getting this one done within a week afterwards. And then, silly me, thinking I had the time (and energy) to fit it in, decided to sign up for #30lists - another fave project that I hadn't done for a couple years. I'm about 2 weeks behind on this one. 
4) I love this shirt. a lot.

5) I really like this one too!

6) I am almost done reading The Color of Secrets right now. I've been enjoying it for the most part, but gee whiz, how many awful things can happen to one family?? Geesh! They really need a break!

7) I always have such high hopes for getting TONS of reading done over the weekend. Then I blink and it's Sunday night and I've read maybe 100 pages. #truth #fail 

8) I didn't want to run yesterday. Then I realized I won't be able to run again until Monday....why is my schedule so full. Ugh! I mean, I'm going to take my running stuff to the mountains for camping, but not sure I'll get a chance to actually go running. Glad I got in 3 miles tonight, but I didn't love it. 

9) OK, I know I just said yesterday I wasn't going to buy "After You" by JoJo Moyes....but that was before I realized I had a $6 credit with yep, I ordered the e-book today. That will be up next for reading.

10) I miss having more time for blogging, but turns out I also have a hard time coming up with 10 worthwhile points to make for this post, so I guess if I had more time, I'd still have nothing to say. I think the fact that I watch little to no TV and pay NO attention to the news plays into having nothing to write about. I didn't even know there was something going on with the FB privacy blah blah blah...hoping ignorance is bliss here, but it's probably something I DO need to know....can anyone fill me in?

I'm totally scared of camping. We did it a lot when I was a kid and I loved it. But now that I am an adult, I think I'm more aware that a bear might eat me. Last time we were supposed to camp, I wussed out and got a hotel :/
