The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
All right, so SHOCK and awe. I’m discovering that it’s awfully difficult to find time to work full-time, be a mom to a 3-month-old, and blog. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. Mostly because Natalie usually decides that she must be the center of attention and that NO distractions are allowed.
Last night Natalie spent the night with her grandparents (I’m anxious to pick her up and see how she did). It was some much-needed baby-free time. But in all honesty, I would have preferred to use that time sitting at the computer catching up on things. Instead we had friends over and we drank a bit, watched Deadpool (which contributed to the drinking; if you’ve never plaid that as a drinking game, don’t), and played Cards Against Humanity. It was fun, but I definitely don’t feel recharged. My husband needed it though.
I totally get why my mom overpacks for everything though. I was gathering stuff to leave with my in-laws, and I fully acknowledge that I packed WAY more than was needed. But I kept getting a bunch of “what-if” running through my head, and more stuff ended up in the bag. Mom, I’ll try not to make fun of you for overpacking as much. It won’t go away entirely, but maybe I’ll tone it down a bit. 🙂
I’m participating in two Read-A-Thons:
- #ReadThemAllThon — see my announcement post for my goals
- 2016 ARC August — I’m hoping to finish 8 ARCs between August and September, so splitting the difference puts 4 in August 🙂
- Same as last week: I’ve finished 3.5 so far. One of them, I guess I technically ended up finishing in July (though hadn’t expected to).
#ReadThemAllThon points earned so far:
- Last week’s balance: 348CP
- Badges Earned: 2 * 20CP = 40CP
- Pages Read: 67 rollover + [835 + (352+357)] * 0.1CP = 160CP (11 pages to roll over to next week)
- Reviews Posted: 2 * 20CP = 80CP
- Tweets: 2 * 2CP = 4CP
- Second Evolution @50CP: 50CP

I don’t have much scheduled yet 🙁 I’ll definitely have a review for Ink and Bone and Paper and Fire. I’m also almost done with a discussion post, but we’ll see if I manage to actually get that finished up today. I’ll likely also have a review of Withered + Sere and Feverborn if all goes well.
Back to work + baby in the evenings has made posting rather difficult (for some strange reason).
This Week I Enjoyed:
I haven’t had much time to keep up with other blogs this week. I’ve browsed quite a bit on my phone, but that mostly entails marking posts to read later. Hopefully I’ll get some quality internet time today and will be able to catch up a bit.
