BLOG PAUSE + update

So you all know how I am on a sorta kinda BLOG PAUSE.
It has become rather ... extended.
On July 11th, we decided to move. We found a nice house, and we really want out of these townhouses, and out of this area.
So from now until AUG 1st I will be moving. I had to reschedule my test for the middle of AUG.
This is a good thing, not the NOT resting part, but moving on. Making moves, hoping for the best.
Stay with me. Things around Between The Pages, will be here of course. Just maybe NO every day!
LOVE YOU ALL, and thank you all for your kind words!!

Yes, this is me right now. 
And it has to stop for a little while.
As you all know I am in the middle of studying for my BIG test. 
Finally the time is here, and even tough I have been staying on the studying here and there, I need to take these next few weeks and 
I have so much I need to refresh on, and some new drugs that have been added to the national drug lists this year to learn, just in CASE they are on this test. 
I have been trying to keep up on the reading, and as that has been a good thing I AM 14 REVIEWS behind. Not from reading, from writing. I have to get them typed up. Soon. I am taking one day to write them, get them scheduled, and get some more things for throughout JULY scheduled. Then I am walking away.
Yes, things for you to read will still be on the blog, and I will be in and out on Twitter. BUT I AM DOING nothing else. 
I need to concentrate on this. 
Although I love blogging, RIGHT NOW, I cannot. I feel like I am in 100000 places at one time... and I do not need to feel like that, ever. 
But, right now... this is the time FOR ME. To complete something I have worked so HARD for.
I have over come a lot in my life, taken a lot of steps to BECOME SOMETHING
NOT because I feel if you are not "something" other then a mother you are NOTHING!
HELL NO. I do not think this. 
I love being a stay at home mom. But I want more for ME.
Even if I do not work, it feels good knowing I can. I could. 
And I would not have to do retail. or something like that, you know. 
This is a personal accomplishment. 
One I never thought I could do.
But you know what. Sometimes I get distracted.
By this lovely blog.
By FEELING AS IF I am letting YOU all down, if I am not "blogging" or "reading"
What about how I feel?
I hope that within this month or so hiatus you are still here. 
I know some of you will be. 
And that means a lot. 
So right now I am hitting it.
For July:
I will not have BIG TBR.
I will be reading but possibly WAY less then ever.
1-3 books. 1 will be for a Tour.
I will finish all of my planned tours, and the rest of the month read-a-long
I will have The Verse Challenge post
And regular MEME's and REVIEWS are scheduled, for the most part. I have a little more to do.
After my test at the END of JULY- VERY EARLY AUG, I will be back. REGULARLY. 
But if there are DAYS where there is no post, please be patient and know I am sitting at my desk learning drugs that are (___________________________) this long and pharmacy law, that is the MOST CRAZIEST jumble of words ;)
I would like to be reading about paranormal creatures, sexy men, kick ass heroins. But, alas I will be reading more about drugs, laws, doing pharmacy math, and all that interesting stuff!!

Thank you to ALL OF YOU. I hope you are still here while I am gone....
Starting in
