It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Last week the stress of being short staffed at work got to me. I barely slept at all a couple of nights and felt utterly nauseous every time I thought about work. By Thursday I was just flat out exhausted and took a mental health day so that I could rest, regroup, and spend some quality time with my pup. I had a good talk with my supervisor about the whole situation when I went back to work on Friday though and am really hoping that things will improve moving forward We’re bringing in a temp who can at least handle the more basic administrative tasks so that the rest of us can focus our attention on all of the deliverables that we have in progress and that need to go out the door soon. It’s not an ideal scenario but I’ll take whatever help we can get at this point.
When I wasn’t stressing out and having mini meltdowns about work, I was helping get my son ready for soccer tryouts for his school team, which are in a couple of weeks. Paperwork, concussion training, conditioning, etc. I also took him for his sports physical and learned what I had been suspecting for a while now — my baby boy is now as tall as I am and will soon be taller than me. That’s such a weird feeling, lol. Thankfully he’s also in exceptionally good health so it’s full steam ahead with tryouts. He didn’t make the team last year but he’s been playing on a travel team since October so hopefully his chances will be better this time around. Fingers crossed for him!
Anyway, needless to say, with all of that going on, I wasn’t around here much and didn’t really get much reading done either. I finished an audiobook of Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver and I read a couple of my February ARCs. I still have a couple of February ARCs to knock out so I’m really hoping I’ll have more time for books next week.
Oh well, I think that’s pretty much it for me. Have a great week, everyone!
