PaperBack Swap

For those who are unfamiliar with PaperBack Swap , it is a great way to find new homes for books that aren't keepers and to get books you are interested in. Goodreads provides a similar service, but I prefer using PaperBack Swap because earning points to order books is a much faster and even exchange. With Goodreads, you pay the shipping charges when you order a book and not when you send one; however, you have to ship out ten books to earn enough points to order one.

Something New

Blogger finally has pages! This website is under serious reconstruction but will be open for business during that time ;-)

Are We There Yet?

I can't wait for the end of the school year! I have been living off of chocolate bars, Skittles, coffee, donuts, and fast food. My garden is growing; however, it will be a while before I can harvest anything. Face it, in the meantime, I've fallen so far off of the healthy eating wagon that I can't even see the wheel tracks. It's a poor response to my extremely stressed out life (it actually adds to it), but I can't seem to stop myself. The onset of summer break will cause most of the stress to magically disappear and part of my summer plan is to put a better stress management plan in place. I'm trying to at least increase and maintain the amount of water I drink ("teeny, tiny baby steps", "gotta start somewhere", etc...). That can only help. Right?
