Welcome to the 47th Edition of the Sunday Post! 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.
Someday I’m going to write a Sunday Post and not start off by saying how incredibly busy and behind I’ve been. This week is unfortunately not that week. I will say, it was a very good week – but I feel so bad by how behind I am on replies to comments. And I’m behind on reading too. I’m hoping that I will have finished the book I was supposed to review on Friday by time this post goes live. Fingers crossed!!
So I was super busy this week because it was the event that I volunteer for on Friday and Saturday. But since I’m the testing coordinator, I was busy all week. I’m giving you the full story.. feel free to skip ahead to where I wrote “So that’s what I did all week! LOL 🙂
I finished writing all the tests and associated materials on Monday. Then I spent pretty much all day Tuesday at the school printing out all the test copies. Y’all I printed 2,881 pages! Which, I might point out, means I had written 167 pages of material! So guess what I did all day Wednesday? Organized those 2,881 pages (double sided whenever I could!) into testing envelopes – there were like 50 different envelopes I had to organize everything into and put seals and labels on (because they would be invalid if seal was broken). Then Thursday I setup the binders that all those papers would have to be organized into after the event (1 for each program participating). Then Friday was the big day! I have to say, I’m so excited because this was my second year doing this and I managed to iron out ALL the hiccups. Literally NOTHING went wrong and everything was so smooth. And so much easier than last year for absolutely everyone involved. But I was at the school from 10am until 7pm. Then I came home and proceeded to start organizing all those papers by program and event, type up all the scores (I’m the only one who knows who won until the award ceremony), and everything. I finished that at 1:30 am, because I was just two tired. I woke up at 10am Saturday and put everything I’d organized into neat piles into the binders – that only took me an hour. Now it’s all packed up and ready to go to the school.
So that’s what I did all week! I’m looking forward to things slowing down a bit this week – just regular work instead of extra projects, but I’m really thrilled I got to support Upward Bound again this year and I hope to do it for many more years.
COYER is going strong – I have a separate update for that coming this afternoon. If you haven’t signed up please do here, we’re having a lot of fun! Also my June is Audiobook Month giveaway ends on Monday, so be sure to check out this week’s Fun Question for a chance to win. That’s all for me, y’all have a great week!

I LITERALLY squealed when I read this post. Yes, squealed. Nose Graze is working on some coding projects and one of them is going to make my life so much easier. If you have UBB you should totally read this post!
I’ve really enjoyed The Book Nympho’s many audiboook related posts this month and there were two more that really caught my eye this week. “The Bookaholic Cat Likes Them Long and Complex” and “What the Feck (WTF): Audio Apps. What’s out there and how to use them”
