The Sunday Post #33


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.

Life:

This week was a busy one. I had to work six days, and on my one free day I went to a symposium with one of my colleagues. I definitely didn’t have a lot of ‘me’ time this week. But still this felt like a good week. The only down part was that I have been standing in a traffic jam almost every single night when I wanted to go home after work. So frustrating! I was really thankful to have an audiobook with me.

I still managed to get some wedding planning done this week. And tonight we’re are going to start with some new wedding planning stuff.. It’s a surprise so I can’t tell you guys what I’m doing! ;) I’m so excited.

Books & Blogging:

Although I had to work a lot, I was still able to read at least one hour every day. So that was definitely a good thing since I honestly didn’t think I would be able too. I didn’t get a lot of sleep though.. but well I figured I’ll sleep when I’m old. LOL!!

I was also able to get a view blog posts done. So.. Happy me! Tomorrow, Monday, I have one free day and I’m going to make some blog posts for the upcoming weeks. So far I’m managing this work, book blogging, reading, wedding planning thing pretty good if I do say so myself.

I’ve also been thinking about some new things for my blog in the new year. I think I have a fun feature in my head, but I will need to work on it a little longer. But I’m thrilled to have at least an idea.

  1. Time always seems to be a struggle with blogging! Sounds like you're juggling it all pretty well though. An hour a day is pretty good- my week wasn't so great for reading unfortunately, but maybe this week will be better.

    Hope yours is a good one!

  2. Yeah, books are definitely better than sleeping. I'm sorry you had to get through traffic jams at the end of your days last week - hopefully you won't have to deal with that next week.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. It really is. I can get so mad and frustrated from all those traffic jams. It's such a waste of time.

    1. Thanks Kristen. I'm really a crazy control freak. Sometimes it really comes in handy.. Especially if it gives me more time to do stuff. :D
