This month has been very trying. I bought a new car since I totaled my other one at the end of June. Our financial situation has been really tight and stressful due to my husband’s job shutting down for 2 weeks for inventory and July 4th holiday. About two weeks, Tupperware announced that they are closing Beauticontrol which was where my side income was coming from. They are technically still open until August 31st but it has made it difficult to sell anything due to a lot of products already being sold out. The past week and a half have been really hard but I know if we can just make it through this next week that we will be back on track financially.
As far as reading goes, I participated in the #24in48 Readathon the weekend of July 22-23. It was a lot of fun even though I only read for around 6 hours and finished 1 book. Since I have been so stressed out lately, I feel that I have read more. Reading helps me to escape. Here’s to hoping August is a better month.
