Springeddon is here! But I #AMREADING, #AMWRITING and I am #BLOGGING! 42


Because, prepping is surviving!

Hello fellow apocalyptic beings,

Springeddon is here! The Spawns have tennis, swim and soccer practices PLUS robotics, dance and music lessons EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE WEEK.

So life is just a blur of me rushing home from work [3:00 pm], to pick the Spawns up at our neighbor’s house [3:30]

OK I NEED TO STOP HERE. I need to say this..

I LOVE OUR NEIGHBORS! ❤

They are this lovely retired couple, SO sweet, laid back and nice [not like yours truly, neurotic sports mom] and they take care of the Spawns SO WELL.

LOVE THEM, LOVE THEM, LOVE THEM to pieces! 😍

So… I was saying.. I get the Spawns at 3:30 and then I herd them to the car like a drill sergeant:

“come come come, finish getting dressed! We need to go!” “OMG what are you doing? We are late”

“Here! Eat this protein bar” “Here! Drink this milk”

“Here take this bag [soccer] and this one [dance] and this [saxophone] and get in the car!”

“no, no, no go your sister is going that way! Go the other way!”

“Did you bring your bottle of water?”

“oh no no don’t put your new jersey on until you are done eating”

“Ok you can practice that new piano piece while your sister is getting dressed”

“ok you can practice that new saxophone piece while I do your sister ballet bun”.

We even do Spanish lessons with Mango audio book while we are commuting from place to another. [review coming soon]. After we are done with this one, we’ll be trying Spanish for Dummies.
At the end of the day this is pretty much how I look after that much adulting. Like this picture from Adulthood Is a Myth that I started reading and I think I will love very much.

In the past Springeddon had meant total blogging debacle, mayhem, devastation, destruction… 😫 The end of the blogging days for this poor little blogger because, besides all this adulting, there is also this huge, devastating, apocalyptic, writing event that happens in April…

 Camp NaNoWriMo!

But now? This little bookworm and book blogger fears not! 😎

Because she will not be forgotten in this super busy #momlife and #amwriting extravaganza!

AND OF COURSE I WILL SHARE THE “WHY” WITH YOU BECAUSE…

“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” 🤔

“If a blogger was a good prepper  and it’s ready for a zombie apocalyptic blogging Springeedon and she does not share it why she is SO READY… did it happen???”

NOPE! Sooooo, I have to post about it and you gotta tell me what you think and give me MORE tips so the Zombies don’t eat me! 💀

So WHY is this little blogger not so scared about this Springeddon?? Because…

  1. She didn’t go “slothing” in February as she could have, JUST BECAUSE, it was a “lazy” month. NOPE! SHE.DID.NOT She read ALL THE BOOKS  😎 [maybe not ALL but some but more than she usually reads] and drafted LOTSA posts! AND…
  2. She learned LOTSA about plotting last week, AND..
  3. She’ll be plotting a gorgeously gritty dystopian/apocalyptic Book next week, SO…
  4. She’ll  be ready to write manically, AND
  5.  Won’t be all stressed not knowing where her story goes,  SO…
  6. She won’t be mess of despair, which is what throws her into reading slumps, AND
  7. She will STILL be able to maniacally read all her pending ARCs…

Reading now

As usual I’m reading a few books at the same time. SEVEN!

Hardcovers on my nightstand…

  • The Inexplicable Logic of my Life, which I also have as NetGalley ARC, is a contemporary that, OMG!, is also one of the most scrumptiously beautiful books I’ve ever read! ❤❤❤
  • A list of Cages I just took a sneak peek and CANNOT return it to the Library because it seems so good so there it is.
  • Hyperbole and a Half, which will probably stay on my nightstand forever since it’s my new bible.🙏

EBooks

  • The Night Mark, a NetGalley ARC, by Tiffany Reisz. She is such an amazing writer that I HAVE to read pretty much anything she writes. 🙂

Audio Books…

  • Winter audio book that I listen to with my kids in the car and…
  • Wolf by Wolf WICKED LORD OF BOOKS THIS BOOK IS AH-MAZING!!! A WWII Historical fantasy that is surely going to become an all-time favorite!

What about you my fellow apocalyptic beings? How do you prepare for Springeddon?

Have you plotted the next scrumptiously stunning bestseller? NO???

[don’t worry, me neither probably. NOT YET] 😝

OK, if you are not plotting, I hope you are maniacally reading!

How many dozen of books are you reading now? What do you have lined up?

Thank you for visiting!

  • Amanda @ To Read or Not To Read?

    Oh wow, your Springeddon sounds CRAZY! But your confidence in the face of it all is inspiring. I can’t wait for your reviews of Wolf by Wolf and Gilded Cage -I’ve been hearing a lot about those two. Zinnia and the Bees is a new title to me, but it sounds fabulous!
    I’m only actively reading three books right now, but I’ve still got 14 on my list for the month. Unless I do start reading manically, I’m never going to make it! At least my CampNaNo project is mostly planned out already. I’ve plotted, re-plotted, and revises my WIP at least 3 times already, but I finally like what I’ve got. The bones are laid out and all that’s left is the actually writing of it and I hope Camp will hurry me past the finish line. BRING IT ON!
    Good luck with the Springeddon!

    • Dragonfly @ Our Familiarium

      thanks! I decided that since apparently the Spawns cannot be returned to the manufacturer to acept the fact I’m a mom and start reviewing children books :D. That’s why that cute Zinnia and the Bees is there ;-P
      I’m so jealous you are ready for the Camp! [I’ve plotted some but still NOT HAPPY with it! 🙁 ]
      BUT very happy for you 🙂 xoxo

  • Geybie's Book Blog

    Glad to hear that you and your family had a great week. Good neighbors mean good life. 😀
    Wow.. you are a very productive blogger. You read lots of books. Awesome. Let me know which ones are your favorites. 🙂
    I hope you enjoy all the books you read this week. Happy reading and have a great week. 😀

  • Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    Oh my gosh, I got tired just from reading your post! You are one busy woman, Daniela! I have no idea how you do it. I’m so thankful my children are older and able to get to all their activities on their own now 😀 Plus, the boys slow down in the spring with hockey season being over and all.
    Well done on being prepared and having so many things already planned out and drafted. You can do it!
    Gotta love lovely neighbours 🙂
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading – that haul is gorgeous 😉

  • Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight

    Oh my freaking goodness you have some busy children! Lol. Your neighbors sound amazing though! And you seem like you are awesomely prepared for springeddon! Although I have to say, every time you show the books you’re going to read next I’m pretty sure those are never actually the ones you read and then next time you share your upcoming books they’re totally different. I’m onto you 😉

    I’ve not been furiously plotting, but I have been mulling around an idea for another book I will never write, trying to figure out how to get it from vague idea to actual story 😛

    • Dragonfly @ Our Familiarium

      HA! I Knew you would out me! [this is the hurtful comment I mentioned :-P] why are you so freaking detailed oriented HUH??? Here I was tricking everyone into thinking that I GOT THIS. That I’m a super organized blogger!
      S
      M
      H
      In my defense… when has Dory EVER done what she said she would?? 🙂
      Revenge times… SO YOU ARE WRITING??? Guess who is gonna be nagging about it and bugging you to talk aout it now ;-P xoxo

      • Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight

        I’m very secretive about my ideas for some reason lol. But actually, I could maybe use your help with a bit of idea bouncing. You might be the perfect person to help with one problem I’m having in particular. Not that I’ll ever end up writing the book anyway because I’m hopeless and seriously idk how anyone writes with brain fog -_-

  • Di @ Book Reviews by Di

    We’re into Autumn here for us southern hemispherians and I’m relieved at the cooler weather along with the promise of a cool winter. The end of our sever rainy season is also welcome! I was considering investing in a canoe…

    That rundown of your one day has me exhausted!! Ha ha. Momming is never easy! (I loved Adulthood is a Myth by the way!)

    Your ARC pile makes me shudder a little! 😉 But so does mine… The books you’re reading look exciting and I hope that you have a good week! Wishing you loads of luck keeping on top of everything! Well done for drafting ahead!

    • Dragonfly @ Our Familiarium

      I don’t think I have told you this but I love you Australian dudes! I’m dying to visit 🙂 A canoe trip sounds good 🙂
      Oh WHAT ARC pile??? ohhh THAT ONE??? I just added about six more books to it!
      Someone please shut down NetGalley until May so I can write please 😀 Thanks Di! good luck to you too 🙂

  • sjhigbee

    Very best of luck with your Springedden writing blitz! I’m fascinated at your multi-book approach to reading – and more than a little awed. I’m the ultimate monotasker in that I can ONLY do one thing reasonably well at a time! As for my writing projects – I’m still stuck in editland, proofing my last rewriting effort and am ACHING to writing a first draft of something! But later in the year, I think. In the meantime, I, too, am preparing. Have a great week – and see if you can insert a few slices of time JUST for you:)).

  • Samantha

    Just reading about your day rushing the kids around made me tired!!! I come home from work and have 3 hours by myself before my husband comes home so I can read, blog, binge watch Investigation discovery….So, yeah, there isn’t really any springgedon issues for me! Good luck with camp nanowrimo!

  • chucklesthescot

    Those sound like some very manic car journeys and a lot of driving them around! (I’m so glad I don’t have kids, just stuffed monkeys…) Spring for me is going to be much more laid back, getting my blog back to full speed, continuing my reading frenzy, maybe fitting in a few films if I’m REALLY lucky and buying more books! Yes that is the only excitement I need! I’m trying to decide on what I’ll be reading next month instead of leaving it to the last minute as usual. Planning is good for Chuckles sanity!

  • Stephanie Faris

    You can do it!!! I need to kick my own writing butt into gear. I have a book to write, after all! I wonder why they do all the writing marathons during good-weather months. They should be in January, when it’s too cold to go outdoors, and August, when the heat is unbearable. (Although August would be a problem for a lot of people…)

  • Maureen Beatrice

    Wow.. Your life sounds hectic!! Whahaha.. I can’t imagine how you pull that of week in week out. You definitely should be named super mom! 😉
    And reading 7 books at the same time? How do you manage that?
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  • Tamara Narayan

    I love Hyperbole and a Half as well. I was so bummed to hear the sequel was shelved indefinitely. I wish I was prepared for Springgeddon, but my to-do list is so long it feels hopeless. Time to go hug a cat.

  • Kathy Martin

    I got tired just reading your post. Nearing retirement means slowing my pace of life which was never all that fast anyway. You have some interesting books on your stack. Come see my reading week here. Happy reading!

  • Jane the Raincity Librarian

    ADULTING IS HARD! When I was a kid I always just assumed that grownups had everything figured out, had everything under control, had nothing but freedom, with no one telling them what to do.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh, how wrong I was….

    Keep your head up, and just keep swimming, swimming, swimming!

  • Kathryn Trask

    Oh my just exhausted reading all that let alone doing it. Great to have such good neighbors, a treasure for sure. Like how you have prepared ahead, well done, hope it helps. All the best for NaNoWriMo! May the words flow.

  • La La in the Library

    A mother after my own heart, except I only had one child! Ha ha. You go girl! Sending good energies your way because you are raising stellar human beings. 💜 I hope you love The Hate U Give as much as I did. Good luck with Camp NaNo. It sounds like you are thoroughly prepped this year. Here’s to a fruitful spring season. ⛅🌱🐣
