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.
News at Home – Happy Holidays!
I hope everyone’s enjoying their holidays! My brother has been over since Tuesday, which has been awesome! I’ve seen so little of him this semester, but now I’m seeing lots of him. We – Phil, my mom and I – took the kids – Franky (my step-son), Jesus (his little brother), and Isaac (Franky’s best friend) – to see Star Wars on Tuesday. I’m not really a Star Wars fan *ducks and hides* but it was fun to take them. And I’ve always enjoyed making fun of it; I found this one particularly easy to make fun of. Then my brother came home with us and, since he doesn’t drive and I haven’t taken him home yet, he’s still here. Not sure yet when I’m taking him home. Yes, I’m holding him hostage! Hehehe! It’s just so good to have him here.
Wednesday my brother and I did our holiday baking because we celebrate Christmas with the family on Christmas Eve (which was Thursday)… after I woke up at 7:00 to go take my PPR exam – the last exam I had to take to get my certification at the end of this school year. I think I did good, but we’ll see. Anyway… We made this chocolate peppermint poke cake (so good!!!), Eggnog Pie (tastes like Christmas!!), and Tres Leche Bread Pudding (the BEST!!!). It took us a few hours and was tons of fun. Then on Thursday we went over to Franky’s mom’s (Tequilla) house for Christmas. We had Pasole and our desserts and opened presents and ended up playing an absolutely hilarious game of Cards Against Humanity – Tequilla, Jr (Franky’s older brother), Jose (Jr’s boyfriend), Philip, Kiko, and I. Then we went to Kiko’s sister’s house and had Tamales and chatted for a bit, before going home and opening up a few more gifts and crashing.
Friday and yesterday I’ve been on a personal mission to get this place really clean and organized so that when I return to work in a week – grrr! – things will be better organized. I did my clothes (got rid of lots of things that don’t fit me because of losing so much weight, yay!) and reorganized the computer area. I plan to tackle my book closet today. And then this upcoming week I want to do some work for school – I want to get a homework calendar, new folders setup for the kids, and lessons plans for at least a month setup.
Of course, I plan to relax too. I mean, I’ve been sleeping in really late – the medicine from my surgery makes me sleep. As you may have guessed from all my activity, I’m feeling really well since the surgery and I’m eager for my follow up appointment on the 29th so that I can stop having everyone forbid me to pick things up and telling me to take it easy. I don’t take it easy well. I’m just not good at sitting around!
One of the other things I really want to accomplish with this break is getting January scheduled out. We’ll see if I manage that. I’ve been reading a lot and I have quite a few reviews to write…
Which is great because COYER is off and running! If you haven’t joined yet, you still can and don’t forget to link up those reviews if you have! I have our first COYER update post coming this afternoon 🙂
Don’t forget to sign up for the #2016HW challenge! If you want to be in for January, your post has to be up by January 1st! I haven’t actually done my post yet, so I’ll be doing that last minute along with y’all 🙂
My eating this week was absolute shit. Was anyone’s eating actually good? If yours was, I applaud you. But I feel no guilt at my eating because I didn’t over eat, I just ate things that aren’t exactly good for me. But outside of Christmas, I’ve been eating well like usual and I’m continuing to lose weight. I’m waiting for my appointment on the 29th to get clearance to go back to working out. I’m so ready! I’m really not good at this taking it easy crap!
