Welcome to 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.

Sorry for yet another long absence – especially considering that my last update included references to being sick. If I worried you, I’m sorry – I’m alive, just super busy with the job. But things are looking up. This past week I arrived at work a full 30 minutes later than I have been all year. I wasn’t late, I just am no longer feeling the need to be freakishly early. Woot! Does that mean things are going great? Nah. But I’ve figured out that no matter how much work I do, they won’t go great. So I’m not killing myself quite so much. I managed to leave most days by 5:30 or 6 which is another huge improvement. If I can keep this up, I might actually get back to a normal life soon! This upcoming week will be the first week EVER that I haven’t had to pay for copies over the weekend just to have what I need for the week. Yes, I’ve been paying for copies. But not this week! *happy dance* I actually have my shit ready for Monday AND Tuesday already. Hell, I even have some of my copies for Wednesday – Friday! It’s a miracle. *knocks on wood* My goal this week is to continue getting to work on time, but not early and leaving by 5pm. Because seriously, it’s just not worth it.
Now if only I could stop working once I get home. I’m still working on that part, but I’m getting better at it. I’ve only done like 2 hours of work so far this weekend and I don’t plan to do more than like 2 more hours today. That’s a huge improvement from when my whole weekend was working. In fact- here’s what I’ve done this weekend… My brother (who I haven’t seen since school started) came over Friday evening. My brother, me and Kiko went to dinner, then we hung at the apartment having drinks and watching a movie. My brother stayed over and I slept in until 11am. Then we went out for brunch and I dropped him off at home. Then I spent the evening with my step-son, came home, had dinner, watched some tv and blogged (while drinking) for a few hours! Sunday (today I guess now) I plan to get a massage (yep, I’ve decided I need a monthly massage), get a mani & pedi, do 2 hours work, and relax! We’ll see if it works out that way, but that’s the plan.
If by some miracle I can pull this off, you might start seeing a lot more of me around the blogosphere! Yay!!
On a sidenote, I had my appointment with the surgeon this past week. Turns out I need surgery sooner than later or I might end up with some serious complications because of gallstones. Boo! The most frustrating part is that my rapid weight loss probably contributed to my gallbladder getting lazy and developing stones 🙁 Anyway, I’ve scheduled surgery for November 20th. That will require me to miss three days work, which is the best I can pull off. Hopefully they won’t give me any trouble and will allow me to still take days off for BEA (haven’t requested yet… getting nervous that they’ll say no!). Cross your fingers for me that it’s not a challenge.
I have reviews scheduled!!! I spent about 2 hours setting up posts and I’m so excited to have reviews for you all week!!! They aren’t necessarily my best ever, but it just feels good to be getting back into the groove. Hopefuly I’ll be able to start doing some real visting in the days to come too!
I’m really hoping to get back to the gym this week. I miss it and while I’m still losing weight, I think I’ll be much happier if I can get back to my zumba. I’m still eating my diet of granola bar and skim milk for breakfast, ensure for lunch, and something super light for dinner most days – so my diet is good. And teaching kinder easily gets me 10k steps a day during the week!
