This was a busy week, and a better one emotionally. I think I am beginning to face reality or see the bigger picture. While not completely back to blogging, I did begin visiting others late in the week and found it was good. The Royal Prince turned one on Friday. It is hard to believe he is growing so fast. I love him to the moon and back. He has such a wonderful, funny personality.  The HoHoHo Readathon was a success, thanks in part to our wonderful challenge hosts. Next year’s event will take place November 9th through the 18th. So mark your calendars.  Stay Caffeinated!

    I’m totally marking HoHoHoRAT in my calendar for next year, it’ll be during exam time but I’ll consider it stress relief!

    Wow! The Prince is 1 already? He was born like, a year ago. Time is really flying by.

    I LOVED The Broken Girls. I just reviewed it this week. I am extremely curious of what you will think because I haven’t seen anyone else review or mention it anywhere. Have a great week. You deserve it!

    That’s such a cute picture of the little one. 🙂 It looks like you’ve started on your holiday reading. I’m starting mine soon! Have a good week.

    Glad to hear that you are getting it figured out. I think we all go through those phases. I missed the HohoHo readathon this year but can’t wait to be a part of it next year. I can’t believe he is already 1 it has been a whirlwind year. It seems like only yesterday he was born. You have beautiful grandkids and wonderful family. I hope you enjoy all your lovely new books. Have a great week and enjoy your Holiday with family.

  11. Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

    Kimba, I totally understand how you feel. I was feeling a little down myself and did not feel like communicating with anyone or blogging. To be honest, I wasn’t going to do the Twitter party, but I’m so glad that I did because it cheered me up.

    Glad that you are feeling better. 🙂 and Happy First Birthday to the Prince!

    Happy birthday to the Prince! Such a cutie-pie…

    I’m glad you’re feeling at least a little better. Sometimes, you really need to hunker down and take time for yourself for a bit. I hope that the situation that has you feeling down, whatever it is, resolves for the best.

    Thank you again for hosting the HoHoHoRAT. Sorry I missed the Twitter party. I look forward to next year!

    Look at that little pookim!! Minor Royal is sooo adorable – his eyes!! I hope he loved his presents more than the boxes 😉

    Ha! What is this blogging thing?? The holidays are a comin’!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

  14. sjhigbee

    Oh, isn’t he adorable! No wonder you love him to bits… My grandson was 8 last week and I simply don’t know where the time as gone. Still adorable, but in a different way:). Loved your review of Into the Drowning Deep and I hope this coming week is a good one.

  15. Sophia Rose

    A whole big year for Prince Clayton. 🙂

    Glad HoHoHoRAT was a success. For my part, I thought it was as well. I only got around to two hostess games, but they all looked good and I met my personal goal. 🙂

    Have a good week, Kimberly, and glad your working through things.!

    I’m so out of the book blogging loop but I hope that whatever it was you were struggling with has resolved itself and you can see a clear path for yourself! I’m not sure what I want to call what I’m going through now (looking for a healthier lifestyle/too may hobbies to keep straight/maybe midlife crisis?) but I know it isn’t any fun!

    I definitely need to mark my calendar for next year’s HoHoHo Readathon so I can be ready for it. 🙂

    I can’t believe he’s already a year old! But I remember he was born around Thanksgiving last year. I hope you all had a great time celebrating him! I’m glad you are starting to feel better and continue to. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help!

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! I like the look of ALL your new arrivals. Looks like you have some great reading ahead of you. That pic of your grandchild is precious! What an expression on her cute face,:-)

    Happy birthday Prince Clayton! I’m glad you’re seeing the bigger picture on what is plaguing you. I hope you find some peace soon.

    Awww, Happy Belated Birthday to the Royal Prince. He is precious! I’m glad to hear you’re doing a little better emotionally this week. I hope that continues to improve for you. And thanks so much for hosting the HoHoHo Readathon this year. I missed the chat because I was packing for a trip and lost track of time, but I enjoyed reading holiday books and doing challenges. Definitely count me in for next year!
