Stress, Anxiety, and Exciting News!

They go hand in hand.

This last week (almost 2 now) I have been waking up with an upset stomach, which I can only put down to stress and anxiety. It has resulted in cancelled plans,  and a lot of TV, books and cereal breakfasts for Emily, while I spent the time back and forth between the bathroom and the couch. Needless to say I haven't been able to get much work done in the way of reviews and my participation in giveaway events has been lacking too.

Of course, it didn't help my workload being without internet for almost a week either. Luckily that is back on thanks to my brother.

Some exciting news though, and probably the source of my stress/anxiety at the moment...

I am officially a college student!! 

I will be taking a business administration course and am really looking forward to getting started as of the 30th. I still have to work on finding housing and a more permanent solution for child care for Emily, but I feel better knowing that I am getting started on my education.

I am thinking that while I'm in school I'm not going to have as much time to dedicate to reviews or running giveaways, so I hope you will bare with me throughout this next year, until I can get back at it with more focus. Currently, I still have plenty to get posted, but I won't be actively pursuing sponsors like I have been. If opportunities should come my way and I think they would be interesting for you I will definitely give them a try if time allows.

I'll most likely be entering a lot more giveaways so Twitter followers beware!  Plus, I've been getting back into reading some books on my TBR list....yay!

Books, giveaways, and classes....oh my!

Let's see where this road leads...
