The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Last week was insane! Last Friday (the 27th) I started feeling a little under the weather with a sore throat and as the week progressed I started waking up every day feeling a little bit worse – cough, chest congestion, runny nose, dizzy spells – until I finally decided enough was enough and went to the doctor Friday morning. I’m someone who hates to go to the doctor and feels silly going for what seems little more than a simple cold, so I put it off. But I just was getting so behind with everything because I felt like shit, so I went. And I’m glad I did. The doctor immediately concluded that I had bronchitis, but she also wanted to have a nurse walk me to test my oxygen levels and then take a chest xray. The result? I also have pneumonia. Yep – I went just in time! The pneumonia is only in my right lung, so with my meds I should be better by the end of the week. But the meds are making me so drowsy. I slept all afternoon Friday and most the day Saturday. Which means – yep, you guessed it – I’m even further behind!
That being said, I managed to keep my blog running, thanks mainly to scheduled posts and mostly written posts. This week was the start of the Something Wicked Blog Hop (running all month) and also the Fraterfest Read-a-thon running through the 8th (and I’m hosting a challenge!). I did not however get any posts for next week written (I’m writing this at 11:41 Saturday night, which is very late for me) so I don’t really know what next week’s going to look like. I’ll post my planned schedule, but bear with me as I try to recover. Hope everyone’s had a wonderful start to October!
Oh and I almost forgot!! On the 9th – so Wednesday – my blog will be 3 months old! I may have said that it was 3 months old last month (I thought it was) but I realized that I started my 3rd month in September, not finished it!! LOL so for reals this time. So can I just share some stats that have me feeling incredibly excited?

Needless to say that’s so much more support than I ever dreamed I’d find! I started this blog thinking it would be fun and if I was lucky my mom and brother would read it from time to time. Instead I’ve met so many great people and become a total blog addict. Thank you all for being so welcoming! Looking forward to many more months (and years!) getting to know everyone better!

Due to not feeling well I’m cutting this post a little short – there were great posts I’d love to share and I still added tons of books to my shelves this week, but I’m ready to pass out again. The meds have me sleeping non-stop!
