Stacking The Shelves and Sunday Post

This meme is hosted by Tynga over at Team Tynga's Reviews, which she describes as follows:

"Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!"

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

The countdown is ON! Ten more work days and then I'm on Christmas Break with my kids for some much-needed down time. It won't exactly be a holiday, because I'll have to be checking my work emails on a daily basis and cannot unplug completely, but I'm going to do my best. It's been a pretty stressful time, and I just really need to take care of me for once! Right now, we're all sick with bad colds and wet coughs and I can't afford to miss any work but it's really tough on the immune system when you're working around the clock and not sleeping well to begin with.

I had to switch out my winter tires with the all seasons on my Grand Am that was written off, and I had to do it before Friday or surrender my nearly new winter tires with the vehicle. I was able to get it done, but I'm still not sure whether they will fit my new Kia Forte. My brother thinks the tire itself is probably okay but I may need to buy a different size of rim. That's the least of my worries right now! At least I have my winter tires back. I'll figure out what to do with them when I have a chance to look up the specs.

Our winter has been amazing so far. The temperatures have been pretty mild, and we're not really getting any big dumps of snow yet.
