Top Ten Tuesday-Random Stuff

 Happy Tuesday my bookish friends!! I hope you all had a fabulous New Year's weekend! Ours was pretty mild. My kids had friends over all day Thursday and Friday, and then we had our youth group over on Sunday, and this introvert is still trying to recover!! Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is your most anticipated reads for the first half of 2022. Since I have already done that post and will link it below, I decided to do a pretty random post today ๐Ÿ˜‚ Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can head over there to see what our other bookish friends are up to today!

First, I am going to introduce you to my family and tell you just a little bit about us since I have not done that on this blog.

I have been married to Matt for 22 1/2 years, we dated 2 years before we got married. Our 23rd wedding anniversary will be in May, we were just babies when we married and I feel like we grew up together! I am Type A personality and he is very much laid back type B, so we balance each other nicely ๐Ÿ˜‚


Our daughter Kayla is 19 and will be headed back to college in Ohio tomorrow. It will be her fourth semester but she goes back as a Junior ๐Ÿ˜Š When she is home she works at Chick-fil-A. My son Elijah, is 16. We homeschool and he works at Chick-fil-A part time. We are trying to decide if we will graduate him in May (he has enough high school credits, hates school, would rather work, but is still trying to decide what he wants to do when he grows up). He will be taking 2 computer classes at our local community college starting on Friday (online insert eye roll) to see if he wants to do anything with computers. If he does, we will keep him in school at the community college for another year and graduate him in 2023. We are ALL book addicts and we have bookshelves in EVERY room of our house (except the bathrooms and laundry room), and even a bookcase in one of our closets ๐Ÿ˜‚ I think we have 23 bookcases in the house.
Now, back to the bookish stuff and hopefully you were not annoyed at my little introduction!

  4. Fun post! I come from a family of readers, too. And I'm very jealous of your 23 bookshelves. We have eight at my house, but could use at least 2 or 3 more. :D

    1. Lark, I did not grow up with many books in my home and I think that's why I boarder line hoard books, LOL! We homeschool so some are curriculum books, but still, 23 shelves :)

    1. Suzanne, I think they are pretty great, but, ya know, I am also pretty biased :) I enjoy posts like this too, but I also realize it is not everyone's cup of tea. Thanks for stopping by!

  8. That's lovely to introduce your family. I have a 3 year old and do the odd Toddler Recommends posts on my blog where I put some of his favourite books ๐Ÿ˜‚ he loves to read and I have been reading to him since he was a bump!

    I started my blog in June and have loved seeing what everyone else in the book community is up to! I'm in the UK so have learnt quite a lot from other people from all over the world and all walks of life!

    Happy New Year and Happy TTT!
