Welcome to the 77th Edition of My 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.

This past week was pretty intense, both good and bad. I don’t want to talk about the bad – I think it’s settled anyway. It just left me feeling really emotionally exhausted. The good though, is GREAT. I have finally worked out the details with my grad adviser and they are no longer going to practically hold my Master’s degree hostage by insisting that I do the PhD that I do not want to do. So I’ll be wrapping up my Masters in August and I will have full funding – including my living stipend until then. What a relief! Just lots and lots of studying to do between my teacher certification exams and my Master exams!
I also finished another knitting project 🙂 One of my very good friends is having a baby in April and yesterday was the shower. This being my first blanket, I sorely underestimated how long it would take me to finish. So after hours and hours of knitting the past few days, I finished pretty much 1 hour before the shower. Yeah. Cut it close. But I’m so proud of the finished product. Pretty good for my first blanket, right?
I had to do all four triangles separately and then sew them together – the longest rows have 99 stitches, so that’s where it took a lot of time. And it also involves crochet work around the edges, and I’m not a fan of the crochet hook :/ But I learned a lot with this one and I really am happy with it.
COYER is over 🙁 I’m so happy with how the event went and I’m already super excited for summer! If you participated, please head over to the wrap up post to take the survey so we can keep improving COYER!
On another note, I’m exhausted. Life has been throwing my some curve balls and I have a lot on my plate. So I’m taking a blog break. I plan to stop in on Sundays for a little bit and if I have any post commitments, those will still go up. But you won’t see a lot of me until the end of the month. Just a break though, I’ll be back 🙂 And you’ll probably get some comment replies from me over that time since I will still be working on the blog – trying to do some catch up work and such.
As I stand on my treadmill desk right now, I’m actually putting all my weight on the right foot because I think I’ve pushed too much this week 🙁 The stress fracture (I assume that’s what’s up) isn’t quite better and I just am so anxious to be up and about. I’m going to try and balance a bit better this week and focus on icing – I’ve been negligent with that this week. I started doing blogilates 30 day thigh challenge and 30 day abs challenge this week – I finished day 5 today and I’m actually less sore than I was on day 2. Does that mean I’m getting stronger already?
