Spring Break Reading Challenge Activity 8: Progress Report

Here is a brief summary of what I have done since March 12.
  • I have worked every day. We have April 2 and April 5 for Spring Break this year.
  • I had a meeting with my insurance agent to make sure I'm covered properly.
  • As a result, I have contacted the people at the Driver's Improvement Center to get documentation that I have taken the safe driver course to reduce my insurance rates.
  • I have met with my tax preparer to do this year's taxes.
  • I have contacted one of my financial advisors to get questions answered for tax preparer.*
  • I have met with second financial advisor for annual meeting to assess goals and strategies.*
  • I have contacted my doctor to get a prescription for a new medication since one I currently take is on backorder at pharmacy.
  • I will meet again after school today with my tax preparer to finalize my taxes for this year.
This is what I have read. (My Kindle has been getting a workout.)
  • I finished Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep.
  • I read the eARC of Mouse and Dragon by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
  • I read Claim to Fame by Margaret Peterson Haddix (the only print book this week).
  • I read Local Custom by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
  • I read Wolf Signs: Granite Lake Wolves, Book 1 by Vivian Arend
  • I am currently reading Scandal Sheet by Gemma Halliday.
  • I began reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver; read 48 pages and gave up; I picked it up again and got to page 186 before I abandoned it a second time. It was not holding my attention.

I have participated in all the Spring Break Reading Challenge activities and posted a Teaser Tuesday and Friday 56. I posted reviews of Spider's Bite and Mouse and Dragon on my Inside of a Dog blog. I reviewed Claim to Fame on this blog.

Other than that, it has been a quiet relaxing week. **Insert major sarcasm here.** This weekend should be quieter, I hope. I want some relaxing time to read.

* No I am not "Ms. Megabucks". When I changed school districts, I had to change the company that does my tax deferred annuity because my new district didn't support the old company. Therefore, I have two small annuities to manage
