Good morning, fellow booksters!
You guys, I feel like I’ve been on autopilot this week. I worked 52 hours last week, watched my niece Emma and took her to school 3 mornings, had game night, etc. Soooo sleep became a major priority, and most days I was just really too lazy to go online at all.
This coming week is about the same – I’m supposed to work about 64 hours, have to watch Emma for 2 more mornings, and PLUS it’s Armchair BEA this week. I debated not doing it – that’s a LOT of internet time to commit to, and part of me would rather try to focus on reading. But looking at my schedule, I think I can manage if I just schedule a few posts ahead of time. Armchair BEA is usually SO fun, and the topics this year look really great. I think I’m just gonna suck it up and do it. Yay!
Also, don’t think I sound too complain-y: It’s been a lot of fun hanging out with Emma, and the overtime pay at work will be nice. I hoping to use part of it towards getting my dear Gabby fixed, because her going in and out of heat is driving me nuts. Poor girl seems so miserable. I’m also hoping to just a bit of clothes shopping, because I really need stuff. Losing weight was great and all, but I had to get rid of basically ALL of my clothes from last year and I need to restock.
My workouts have taken a definite hit this week – I think I only went to the gym once or twice. I’m going to try to go at least twice this coming week, but I’m not going to stress about it. I’m busy, and I can get back into my routine once next week is over.
Bookish update: Well, I finished one book this week – Mockingbird, but Chuck Wendig. And then when I went to write the review I realized I’m a dummy and that Mockingbird is actually the sequel to Blackbirds, which I haven’t read yet. I’m gonna go try and buy Blackbirds today, and then maybe I’ll do a double-review later.
I’m still reading The Case for Mars by Robert Zubrin, which is slow going because it is super information and detail heavy. I’m going to try to finish it within the next couple days. I am determined to cross it off on my Monthly TBR list for May.
Alrighty, so that’s my excitement for the week. What’s going on with you guys? How’s your week been? Any fun things planned for next week?
