Hi.

Welcome to my blog!

๐ŸŽถLetโ€™s talk about books, baby
Letโ€™s talk about you and me
Letโ€™s talk about all the good things
And the bad things that may be
Letโ€™s talk about books๐ŸŽถ

Just Call Me Maria!

Just Call Me Maria!

At the beginning of the year I started my new job as a nanny! A nanny to seven kids that are home schooled! Yes, seven kids! Yes, home schooled! Going from having no job for almost 3 months to working 40 something hours a week with a new family was a definite change.

The job has been amazing though! I love the kids! They are all so different and so much fun to talk to and play with. However, I literally, I have no time to read!!! I have an hour and half to two hour commute each way and then Iโ€™m with the kids from 8:30-5. I listen to Libro.fm to and from work and then try and read a little before and after work but itโ€™s not enough. It will never be enough!

Iโ€™m a marathon reader. My usual reading habit is to read in huge chunks of time, 4-6 hours at a time. Now, during the week, Iโ€™m lucky to read a physical book for more than 45 minutes. Yes, I listen to my books but sometimes you really just need an ACTUAL book. So, currently, Iโ€™m learning how to become a sprint reader. I definitely love marathon reading much more! And Iโ€™ve become very territorial about my days off, you know, so I can readโ€ฆ

Iโ€™ve learned that I need to schedule posts for instagram and my blog. When before, I would just post when ideas came to me- now I need to planโ€ฆ The horror!!! So, if things are a little chaotic with posts, itโ€™s not intentional, itโ€™s because I barely have time to do anything besides sleep. Donโ€™t give up on me!!! Stand by me and be patient with my new schedule. I promise it will get better. Eventuallyโ€ฆ

-Happy Reading!
