Mailbox Monday - Nov 18

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Well, we are 10 days away from Thanksgiving. I think I'll play host this year. Last year we were away at my brother-in-law's place. I'm eager for turkey and all the fixings. How about you?

Last week was filled with appointments and I was elected as an officer of the REALTOR® Association of Pioneer Valley. I also sat on a panel with other longtime members to speak to a group of new REALTORs.

What an exciting career choice this has turned out to be. I never expected to be so in love with what I do, and becoming part of the leadership team has brought with it so many rewards.

With a clean office, I feel more productive. I spent the weekend showing a house or two, mailing out marketing packets, and holding an open house.

The more exciting part of the weekend was the Fall Dance Show at Wilbraham and Monson Academy. The Lil' Princess has been on the dance team since last year. This group of talented teens always puts on an amazing show. During dress rehearsal, one of the team captains injured her ankle, which meant these kids had to learn new parts a day before the show. If the teacher hadn't told us, we never would have known.

In my reading world, I'm trying to catch up on the dozen or so books I still owe reviews on. In my mailbox, I found this little gem to help bring me into the new year and the goals I am setting for myself.

What was in your mailbox? Any seasonal titles this week?
