Book Lovin’ Mamas is BACK in ACTION

So remember when I posted that Book Lovin’ Mamas would be on a HIATUS until after vacation in July? Well, we’re finally back from our time off from the blog. I’m so sorry to our followers that it took this long. The hiatus was supposed to end after a month, but life happens and some times you don’t get to decide. *sigh*

Book Lovin’ Mamas may have missed out on posts to schedule, but we promise it was not intentional. This Book Lovin’ Mama was sick the beginning of June that prevented me from even reading a book. There also was the family vacation that was took place in July that I didn’t get a chance to read or even post on the blog. I haven’t even logged into my laptop in quite some time. My husband said to me that I must be sick if I don’t ever use my laptop. Computers are my life, especially since my day job requires me to be on one for 40 hours during the week. I mentally needed a break since the summer took a toll on this mama. Plus, I’m still recovering from losing an amazing friend who I miss dearly. I had some help the last two months though, which definitely made me stronger.

Now with the little ones going back to school, let’s just say this mama needs her reading time again. It may be less due to my day job having projects that need to be completed even after hours the next month, but that’s okay. The oldest daughter (Lil’ Sidekick) is going to be back with her soccer schedule again, which means reading time for this mama. The youngest (no longer the preschooler, but the Rambunctious Kindergartener) will be attending gymnastics and dance, which means some more reading time for this mama.  Continue reading
