Welcome to the 62nd Edition of My Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Holy wow people! Can you believe it’s November? I hardly even realized it was October and now it’s November! I think time’s just flying by because I’m keeping so incredibly busy. Last week was no exception. For one, we sold my mom’s car. It was the right move – the transmission is getting ready to go out, it eats motor mounts for lunch, and had a $600 repair that had to be done now if she was going to keep it. We probably would have been okay doing the repair and replacing the transmission if it weren’t for those motor mounts, which cost like $800 to replace once a year at least. So CarMax bought her car and now we’re on the search for a new one. She can’t afford payments, so we’re calling and driving all over the place looking at cars for sale by owner. Hopefully we’ll find one today, because it’s exhausting!
And then Friday we had a blast trick-or-treating. My stepson’s family lives in a new neighborhood (they moved in January) and it’s so much better for trick-or-treating than their old one. People sit outside in costumes waiting for the kids and some even pretend to be decorations and scare them a bit, which was so fun. Here’s what really blew my mind… like normal years we took my stepson and his little brother. But we also took my stepson’s girlfriend! Where’d my little guy go? Trick-or-treating with his girlfriend (who he kissed – first kiss- last week)!! It was so cute though, since he’s still kind of shy around us with her, but as the night wore on they were talking and flirting so cute. Here’s a couple pictures:
Today’s going to be another busy day – car shopping plus stepson needs a haircut BAD (we negotiated until after Halloween) – but I’ll try to get around sooner than later. Hope everyone had a great week!

November’s Challenge Updates
Since I’m super busy with challenges this month, I’m adding this brief update to my Sunday Posts, rather than creating new posts (yes, I’m feeling lazy LOL). Not a lot to report seeing as today is just the 2nd.
A Month of Giving Thanks – We kicked off yesterday and I was excited to see several people participating with us already. Remember you can jump in whenever/however you’d like 🙂
NaNoWriMo Boggy Style– I started the month with 17 scheduled posts and that’s exactly how many I have right now. So I’m maintaining and that’s about it so far. Hoping to kick it into gear this week!
NaNoWriMo – My goal is to write every weekday, so I’ll really be kicking off tomorrow!
NetGalley November – I’m about halfway through my first NetGalley read for the month, so I’m hopeful I’ll make good progress on this one this week!
Another great question this week with Rose & Julie’s Chat Between Chapters: “How Did You Become A Reader?”
NoseGraze shared some downloadable graphics you can use with reviews. I have some of my own already, or I would have grabbed these up!
Traci @ Mad Hatter Reads is doing a weekly post with some great gift items for fellow bookworms. I want them all for myself!
Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads has another fun Quarter Talk – this time it’s 11 bloggers (including yours truly) talking about the third quarter. I had a blast seeing what everyone else is loving and looking forward to!
Rabid Reads asks, “Do you ever wish there was no sex?”
