Welcome to the 70th 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.
News at Home
The big news at home this week is that I’ll be starting an alternative teacher certification class tomorrow (Monday). I met with the program on Friday and took their admissions test (I passed with flying colors!) and got all squared away to start. I’m less nervous about the class than I thought I would be. I think I don’t anticipate having any trouble with it – it’s more the content exams and finding a job as a teacher that make me nervous. The admissions counselor was really excited for me – she thinks I’ll have no trouble finding a job with my qualifications and said that back when she was a principal she would have scooped me up. Finger’s crossed she’s right!
I also finished knitting another scarf this week – for me this time!
I had some yarn to use and I wanted to get some practice with lace work before working on the infinity scarf I’m making for my mom next. It’s really nice to be knitting again and I find every time I’m doing something where I can use my hands (like listening to an Audiobook or watching TV) I want to knit.
News on the Blog
I could use some advice actually. I got an email early last week/late the week before about a company in china wanting to register my domain name, but with the “.cn”. I was asked if my company had anything had anything to do with China. I said no. Now I’ve received two more emails – one from the company saying that they still wanted to do it and another from their representative I guess saying he’s advised them not to, but they want to go ahead. He’s told me that anyone can register domain names (as if I didn’t know that) and is asking me if my company wants to register CN domains because I have priority during the audit period.
My instinct is that I really don’t care – I want what I registered. But am I missing something? I don’t want to do something that would hurt my blog an I have no interest in changing my name down the road, so if I need to buy the CN I will. Thanks for any knowledge you have on this front!

Carol had a really awesome post about 12 Years of Audiobooks with the Kids – what a great tradition and so many great books! Not to mention the memories!
Nose Graze is at it again! Would you be interested in a Membership Site for Bloggers to learn skills and get help with things? I know I do!
Winter 2015 Bloggiesta Sign Ups are here! I need this because I haven’t really sat down to do some of the new year things I need to do – updating archive pages to add 2015 and such. It will be January 17th -19th, taking advantage of our holiday weekend (in the states).
Added to my Shelves
So I still added some books this week without buying any – that’s not breaking the rules! I’m really excited about these review books too! Thanks to Shannon A. Thompson, Felicity Heaton, and Tantor Audio! *click on images for Goodreads*
