I have a good excuse…

I know I haven’t been around lately. No reading. No posting. I’m barely even commenting. I am really sorry. I’m working on building my buffer back up now that I’m getting some energy back. However, I have a pretty good excuse…

Tough Mudder - Next ChallengeTough Mudder - Baby on BoardShane and I are expecting our first baby the first week of December!

We completed the Chicago Tough Mudder this past Saturday and used our after pictures as the announcement. I obviously had to skip a few of the obstacles. Since I was working out regularly before and knew my limits, we weren’t worried about me deciding to still do the challenge.

I’m 11 and half weeks and just starting to get my energy back. While I’ve been very lucky and haven’t been super sick, I have been tired ALL the time. As in falling asleep as soon as I start to read.

So while I’m not 100% back yet… I’m working on it and hope to be back very soon!

{Tattoo Tuesday} I doubted if I should ever come back.

Do you have a literary tattoo? I’d love to feature it!

 Just send me an email with a picture and story behind it.

From Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken“. I’ve always had a sense of wanderlust (growing up as a navy brat only helped fuel it) and I’ve always been uncomfortable staying in one place.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

{Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge} 04.29.13

Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Amanda @ On a Book Bender and I shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week.

25 Hour Books Recap

I hadn’t planned on taking a break… but I used up my buffer and I’ve had too much going on to catch up. Focus for this coming week is to catch up on blog reading/commenting. I still plan on posting Tattoo Tuesday, but unless by some miracle I finally finish Serpent’s Kiss, I don’t foresee other posts this week.

Meanwhile, in Tara’s World

It’s been a crazy busy week (including feeling under the weather), but nothing worth posting on Instagram. Apparently I’m slacking all around :)

{Tattoo Tuesday} Gravitation

Do you have a literary tattoo? I’d love to feature it!

 Just send me an email with a picture and story behind it.

Einstein was brilliant.

This belongs to Rachel.
This is a tattoo I got [March 14th], on Einstein’s birthday, of my favorite Einstein quote: “Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
I’d heard it before as “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love”, but by researching it a bit I found that this was the actual quote. I love it!

It was a busy week, but that doesn’t really explain the not reading. Mostly I was just exhausted. The hubs will be home at night this week, but I’m hoping I can still sneak in a few chapters here and there.
