I was up until 4:30 am last night to get caught up on everything, so I need to figure out a better way to balance my school/parenting/home/workload. I’m kind of just flying by the seat of my pants right now.

I have a morning ritual of drinking coffee and going through all of my favourite consignment websites for new listings. With consignment shops, you have to make sure that you stay on your toes because things go really, really quickly.

I scored a pair of white and black patent leather Chanel kitten heels for $140 minus 10% winter sale. They look so vintage, although they aren’t, and they are in great condition.

Even better, when they arrived they were in their original box, dust bags, and had their paperwork. They are super cute.

It pays to be vigilant.

Weekly Reads and Some Videos:

I don’t do reality tv shows, but I would do this one.

‘Maus’ author reacts to his book being banned. I highly recommend this book to anyone with kids…or anyone, actually. It is a Pulitzer Prize winner for a reason. It is actually two books, Maus I, and Maus II. You can also buy it together.

I love how the banning of this book in a school district in Tennessee has pushed it to the top of the Amazon charts. This restores my faith in people a bit.

How you could survive (and prosper) in the Middle Ages. I’ll take note of this for when I finally get to time travel.

A Fun, Animated History of the Reformation and the Man Who Started It All. I love when people take a usually boring history topic and sum it up in an educational yet fun way. It may inspire someone who would normally steer away, to read more about the subject.

I watched Deadly Class on Netflix. I should know better, by now, than to watch a series that was cancelled after the first year. I always love it, and it always pisses me off that there will be no more.

Anyway, it’s good if you like something dark and weird. It’s based on a graphic novel that takes place in the 80s.
