The Sunday Post #4


http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Another week has flown by. It was a crazy busy week for me. I had to work from Tuesday till Friday and it was really busy at work and I didn’t get a lot of sleep. But what else is new.. LOL!!

On Tuesday I went to my friend for dinner. We made Macaroni Carbonara and then we went to the musical the Bodyguard. I was looking forward to this musical for weeks so I was super excited. I loved the movie the Bodyguard and I also really love Whitney Houston’s music, so my expectations were really high. But fortunately the musical was also really great. The music, the actors and the singers were amazing and the dancing was also very good. We loved it and it ended way too fast.
Of course I was home way too late, so after a view hours of sleep I had to get to work again. Wednesday after work I spent much of my evening cooking, because Thursday after work we had dinner with friends. We all made one course, and I made Mediterranean zucchini soup with smoked chicken. It all tasted very good and it was a fun night.

I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week so I was a little stressed yesterday morning because I felt like I was way too behind on my reading schedule.. Today I feel a lot better. I just decided to do what I can and not to stress too much. Reading is for fun right?! And it also helps that I spend my whole Saturday reading. Crazy what reading can do for me.. One day of reading and I feel like myself again.

  1. I'm glad the musical lived up to your expectations Maureen... nothing worse than really looking forward to something which lets you down. It sounds like a busy week and a bit of a social one as well. Hopefully work isn't quite as full-on next week and hope you sleep a bit better!

    1. Thank you Deborah. It really was a great musical. I've been listining to the music every since! :D

  2. Reading is for fun, hell yes! I think when you book blog it's too easy for it to become a chore and I have to remind myself over and over that reading is my time out and to only do what I feel like doing.
    The musical sounds fun! I love going to them, they are always such an entertaining evening and you leave in a great mood.

    1. I really have to remind myself too at times. I think it's part of being a perfectionist. LOL!!
      Musicals really are great. It had been a while for me, so it was extra special :D

  5. What a busy week! Don't worry about being "behind" on reading because, yes, reading is for fun! Sometimes I forget that because of having a blog, but I hate to force myself to read when I don't want to or I'm tired. Just have fun :)

    Here is my Sunday Post!

    1. I definitely need to remember the reading is for fun part. It's still fun but especially when I'm really busy it gets more of a chore.. and that's definitely not what I want it to be.

  6. I hear ya on the reading. I get cranky and out of sorts when I go too long without reading *something*. I gotta get my fix even if it's just a short story or a quick graphic novel. :) I've never been to a musical since I'm not really a fan. The are only 2 musicals I've really enjoyed and those were Buffy's Once More with Feeling and the Psych episode Psych the Musical. lol

  7. Reading is definitely fun and it can sometimes be the most calming thing for me though I do sometimes get stressed and start feeling like I'm behind. Too many books I want to read I guess. I love the idea of The Bodyguard as a muscial and that's great that they did a good job! Have a great week and enjoy the rest of your break.

    1. The Bodyguard definitely was a great musical. I was honestly a little surprised that it hadn’t become a musical earlier on. And that music... Sigh!!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I'm glad you enjoyed the musical! The song Run to You from The Bodyguard is one of my favorite Whitney Houston songs.
