Stacking the Shelves #109


I am really excited to participate in Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality.

My Life
This week was busy!  I knew that the calm wouldn't last forever.  Wednesday night we went to my daughters band concert which was nice but it took up the entire evening.  On Friday, my daughter performed at the local solo and ensemble festival.  My daughter earned a 1 which is the highest score for her trombone solo and her brass trio.  She also filled in at the last minute for a trombone quartet that had a sick member.  She didn't get a chance to warm up or even run through the music before the performace and that group earned a 2 so I was impressed. 

My duaghter has talked me into taking her shopping for her prom dress this weekend which should prove to be an adventure.  Wish me luck!

Books for Review

Sirens by Joseph Knox (Blogging for Books)

I am really looking forward to this book.  It looks like a great one to work in the next time I am in the mood for a thriller.

  11. Does sound like a hectic week but it also sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you have fun prom shopping with your daughter. I remember senior prom shopping with my mother and it was a nightmare. I'm sure the two of you will fare much better!

    1. My youngest daughter is such a calm and easy going kid so shopping was a pretty easy experience. My oldest daughter thought I was evil when she was this age and would have fought me every step of the way in terms of choosing a dress. I don't like shopping so I am just glad that we now have the dress.

  15. I have to get my hands on this book by Lisa Kleypas! I am riding out the storm that took out our power at a friends. So surreal looking at all the downed trees and power lines cut in half. They say we won't have power to our area till Wednesday!! Have a good Sunday!

  16. I always enjoyed going to my kid's music concerts. Sure a good way to get a dose of classical music ;-)

    1. I like the concerts but they have become way to long at my daughter's school. You have to be in a seat at 6:30 if you want a chair and it isn't over until 9:30. It ends up being a 4 hour event which is just too long for me. They do sound good though.

  17. Congrats to you daughter. I hope you have a great week.
