Saw this image on the Over app and thought it related to my current read! Sweetie is fat. She‘s okay with it. Her mother is not. Thank goodness she‘s got a strong support system in friends and other family.

I managed to make it to the post office today with three pieces of mail. Chipping away at my #jb stack! Hope you‘re all enjoying the weekend.

I've been writing #LitsyLove and #JB replies since 9 am this morning while getting in the Christmas spirit with a cheerful playlist! I'm so sorry for those that are still waiting for replies, as I still have about 15 left after this batch. But I appreciate all the cards and love!!
And to combine this with #BFCr4, another great week! I tried a new workout class which I loved and tried out a couple of work's lunch clubs to get away from my desk!

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 1w
LauraBeth I'm inspired by your great BFCr4! I've had a miserable two weeks 😔 I pledge to get my behind at the gym this week! 1w

Kaylamburson It's so hard when the weather gets colder. I'm really trying to push myself, and I know this upcoming week will be hard. But it might help to have a playlist you're excited about or an audiobook that you can't stop listening to! @LauraBeth 1w
LauraBeth I've paid for a subscription to FitRadio - they have really great playlists. Hopefully, I can just get out the door tomorrow. It's going go be 65 degrees here - I have no excuse! 1w
Kaylamburson That sounds inspiring!! You can do it, @LauraBeth !! 1w

Ok, I'm back. Been gone too long. Surgery didn't go well, I've just been working and not doing much. But I miss Litsy and my friends here. So I am definitely back. This is my current read. I'm also writing #LitsyLove and #jb mail today since it's a rainy day. And I have several recent reviews to add here. Hope you all are having a great Sunday.

Bookwormjillk So glad to see you! Sorry it didn‘t go well. 3w

Some JB mail went out yesterday to these lovely ladies. Is one of them you? #JB

On Being 40(ish) | Lindsey Mead
post image

Finishing up this book today. Also, hi 👋🏻

I had a lot of intentions for the year I turned 40. Climbing Mount TBR. Completing #192019. Being up on birthdays and #jb correspondence. Reader, I failed at all these things.

I still intend on answering my #justbecause mail. I‘ll read what peaks my interest. But I need to not be so hard on myself when I don‘t make goals.

What intention did you miss the mark on this year? What did you learn?

AmyG Every year I try to be more patient. I try to worry less. I did accomplish the “worry less” part a bit....things will be what they will be. And at patience....I do better at some times than others. We all fail as It‘s part of being human. Just keep trying. I‘m doing thr “On Being 60ish”. Just the # is a challenges. Yikes...when the hell did that happen? (edited) 1mo
Librariana I don't think I set any for the year I turned 40 😳🤔 I think I'd just rather be pleasantly delighted/surprised by what I accomplish and grateful for the things that happen. I think I've gotten better at setting realistic goals (when and if I do) rather than setting the bar too high and then being disappointed. Above all, I try to be gentle with myself. I hope you will be, too 😊💗 1mo
marleed Omg, I‘ve missed so many. But I try to pay attention to what I accomplish and not to track what I miss, just let it go. I‘ll add the misses back to 2020 - like getting and using a passport! 1mo

Wow, I am just beyond grateful for all the love and birthday wishes I've received through the kind and generous souls of #LitsyLove and #JB. It's still over a week until my birthday and I've been showered with cards and most unexpected, presents! You are all so wonderful and sweet! I've had a stressful week and coming home to all of this love has just made my week. Thank you all times a million!!! 🥰💜❤🧡💛💚
👇🏼👇🏼 see more...

Kaylamburson @Jee_HookedOnBookz I am so touched by your very full package of goodies. I cannot wait to read Chalk Man, use my scented pens, stickers, bookmarks, cards, and I adore Starbursts! You truly made my day. It was so unexpected, and as I opened the package, I just kept finding more and more goodies! It was like a Mary Poppins bag!! Haha. Thank youuuuuu 💜💜💜💜 1mo
Kaylamburson @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @TheBookHippie I couldn't wait, so I opened the gift pre-birthday, and I'm so excited!! I've been wanting to read One of Us is Lying forever now!! You guys are amazing 💜💜💜 1mo

Crazeedi I hope my little card made it too!! So glad you have such wonderful surprises!! 1mo
Kaylamburson Thank you to the surprise card from England! (At least I think based on the stamp and postmark). I will have to properly thank you once I know who sent it, but I'm following strict instructions to not open until October 26th! You never want to mess with that birthday magic! 1mo
Kaylamburson @Lovesbooks87 I think I included you in another post, but I'm just so grateful! I love the happy stickers and it's a "whale" of a good bookmark ?. Laughing at my own jokes, haha. Thank you!! 1mo
Kaylamburson @UwannaPublishme , I can't wait to respond to your wonderful card. So sweet of you to send me a birthday card and the goodies inside. I love the mini fortune! "Happiness is not in our circumstance, but in ourselves. It is not something we see, like a rainbow, or feel, like the heat of a fire. Happiness is something we are." John B. Sheerin. That's so true and definitely something I try to live by. Thank youuuu!!! 1mo
Kaylamburson @Jas16 you are wonderful and so so sweet of you to think of me! I'm loving our #LMPBC and so sad it's almost over! 1mo
Kaylamburson Aww thank you, @Crazeedi !! So sweet of you! I don't think I got it yet (unless you're the yellow "not to be opened until 26th October card), but NYC is notoriously slow at delivering. I'm sure it will arrive soon! Did you send it recently? I'll keep an eye out! 1mo
UwannaPublishme Thanks for sharing the great quote. I never get to read them, but I see you received the exact one meant for you. 👍🏻 Keep celebrating and having fun. 😘❤️🎉🎂🎁🎈 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Kaylamburson 🎊🎉🎈❤️ 1mo
Kaylamburson Scrolling on my feed today I came across LitsyLove cards with handwriting just like my special yellow international one. Is it from you @LapReader ?? Thank you so much! I'm excited to open it on my birthday. I'm following instructions! Haha. I also know people hate when you mix-up England and Australia, so so sorry about that! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1mo
LapReader Nope not me but happy birthday anyway. 1mo
Kaylamburson Lol, the handwriting looked so close. Thanks, @LapReader ! Also I love to know there's another pole dancer and reader on here. I also love the fitness activity! 1mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Omg YESSSSSS! It arrived this time! Doing my dance 💃🏽💃🏽Woot woot! Enjoy! ❤️ Have a great birthday, Kayla! 🎉🎂🎊🎈😘 1mo
Kaylamburson Yesss success!!! Thank you so so much!! 🥰🥰🥳 @Jee_HookedOnBookz 1mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Kaylamburson you're so welcome! 1mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz ❤️❤️ 1mo
Kaylamburson I got your card @Crazeedi !! Thank you so much!! I love the quill-like bookmark, and I can't wait to respond to your letter 💜 1mo

“Always shoot
For the sun
and you will shine.”

The poetry, structure,language,rhythm, beat, energy, motion- all combined, make this book an experience in and of itself. Has the 9th grade students reading this book, highly engaged, alive, laughing, sharing, connecting,- taking a wild ride- one of motion, grace, love, family, heartbreak, community, loneliness, loss,genetics, food, and of course “SWISH!”🏀

merelybookish Great review! 1mo

Just a note to say that I'm opting OUT of #JB, but staying IN #LITSYLOVE and #JBUK. However, if you were IN #JB and I've tagged you above I'm keeping your addresses as we've become friends!

It's not that you're not all my friends, I'm just struggling with who is in which group!

I'm keeping the pile of addresses on the right! 🤣🤣🤣

CatLass007 So glad you‘re keeping me! 😘😘😘 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awesome 💗💗 2mo
Chrissyreadit Yay!! I need to leave JB too- I thought I would get cards done, but I‘m overwhelmed by the numbers. I‘m glad you‘re keeping my address handy ❤️😘🥰❤️ 2mo
