September was a crazy month. As I mentioned before, we’ve had a bit of a tough time settling in here due to multiple circumstances. I’m really hoping October is quieter. Jason is home after two weeks down in Texas, and I realized with amusement that that’s the longest we’ve been apart since we got married nearly 17 years ago. We’ve accepted an offer on our San Antonio house and are currently in the option period. Cross your fingers that all goes well to close in early November! We’ve also started looking at houses here. We now have Wisconsin licenses and license plates, and soon we’ll be able to register to vote here (yay!). So we’re moving along.
Some things, though, are going slowly. We’re currently living with my in-laws, mostly out of boxes. My computer is in a corner of the guest room, and it’s much harder to spend time on it, whether that’s socializing, blogging, or writing. I’m going to miss the readathon this month, and NaNoWriMo next month, and I haven’t been able to look at my feed reader more than once or twice since we moved here. And I imagine that’s going to stay the situation until we settle into our own house, and who knows how long that’ll take?
I’m hoping, now that Jason is home and we’re settling into a more solid routine, that I’ll have a bit more time to spend on things I love. I’d like to be able to blog and read all your posts. I’d like to write again. I’d like to exercise! Hopefully October will see an improvement in all those things.
September was at least a good month for books. I read 8 books, all but one of which was on audio, and a good chunk were RIP-related. There was a good mix of rereads, highly-anticipated series continuations, and new-to-me books. The surprise book of the month was my reread of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I liked-but-didn’t-love it the first time around, but the audio version tipped me over into love. It was just so much better on audio! As for my favorite of the month? That is The Creeping Shadow, though honestly there are a lot of contenders for the top in September. Let’s hope October proves to be just as entertaining!
Aaaand that’s about it to wrap up my month. I hope you’re all well, and look forward to the day I can more regularly visit your blogs, interact on comments, etc etc. In the meantime… *waves hello*
