The Sunday Post #42: February Already

Life:

And it’s February! Wow!! I don’t even know what to say about that.

Monday I was supposed to try on my wedding dress again, but unfortunately the lady who will be making the last fittings on my dress was sick. I was really disappointed because I was waiting for this day for months. But we rescheduled it for this Wednesday! I can’t wait.

On Tuesday I had a going away dinner for two colleague’s. It was a fun evening but it was also a little sad to say goodbye. When I wanted to go home I had to wait on the train for a long time, and I had to get out in another station and wait again which was really frustrating. I was home very late and was only able to sleep six hours before I had to get to work. Sigh..

Wednesday and Thursday I had to work the dayshift. And now, Saturday, I’m working the night shift. Three nights, and although I used to be really good in working nights, I’m feeling super tired right now and can’t wait for it to be Monday morning.

What was really exciting this week was that we received our wedding invitations. They look so pretty and we’re really happy with them. I can’t wait to send them out in a view weeks. My Husband-To-Be also got his suit in this week. I can’t wait to see him in it!  

Books & Blogging: 

I’ve had a pretty slow reading week. I was feeling really tired and the time just went by too fast. But I plan to catch up when I’m done with my nightshifts.

I did get two new books I’m excited about. Can’t wait to read them.

  3. Working at night is something I once did, way back in the day, and I still recall how surreal it seemed to be sleeping when others were awake, and trying to stay away during the work hours.

    Have fun planning the wedding, and enjoy! And enjoy your books. I love the cover of Ignite.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

    1. Nightshifts definitely feel very surreal. Especially when people think I must have nothing to do since everybody sleep at night.. Guess what.. Nightshifts are crazy on the ward I work. LOL!
      Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

  4. Sorry to hear your wedding dress fitting had to be delayed, but I hope it goes well this week.

    It's also Monday here in Oz now, so probably nearly Monday there and I hope you get some rest!

  5. I hope your fitting goes spectacular this week! I can understand the disappointment of having to wait. I hope you are able to catch up on sleep and rest. The man works nights, so I try to match his schedule a little bit when we are together and it throws me all off when I travel back for the work week.

  6. I hope your fitting goes well, Maureen. It can be so frustrating when you are looking forward to something and then have to wait even longer. Ugh. Wedding invitations! I bet they are lovely. I hope you have a great week and are able to fit in more reading.
