Just being lazy & a Birthday! ~WIR & TSP

Posted February 8, 2015 by Michelle in The Sunday Post, WIReadview / 29 Comments

WIR vectorstock_43821-1-1Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Real Life & Blog News:

On Monday I will be the proud parent of a 10 year old πŸ™‚ Ryan’s birthday is Monday but on Saturday we went to the Diner to celebrate his birthday with the family. I can’t believe my little baby is going to be 10 years old. They really do grow up so fast but he is turning into an amazing little man and I am super proud of him πŸ™‚ He was super excited about his gifts and since Monday is a regular day of work and school we thought we would give him his gifts early. Said it was the best birthday every! We plan to get him a bike also but he will pick it out himself on Friday since I’m not sure what size he needs, in the last few weeks he seems to have grown a lot.

I was ultra lazy this week and maybe it’s because I got so ahead on my post but I can’t let that set in to long since I am a productive type person and need to be always doing something otherwise I get in a rut that is really hard to get out of. So Friday I set up a few posts and fixed my calendar. Next week I am joining The Geeky Blogger with a feature/meme she has called Task It Tuesday. I am super excited about it and I think it will really keep my blog and home life more organized. I am adding my real life into it since I think it’s a great idea giving you a week to handle that one or two tasks that you might have been putting off.

I wont be around much today until later so if you stop by to comment don’t worry I will be by your blog at some point today πŸ™‚

  1. Happy Birthday Ryan! My youngest is turning 12 this year and they grow up so fast. That’s a nice surprise for him to celebrate a couple days before his real birthday. I’ll have to check out Task It Tuesday. I was doing good with writing up my posts early but then I got behind again. It gets hard when I have to work on the weekends so maybe this meme will help me stay focus. I hope you are having a great week!

    • Thank you Kathy πŸ™‚ He really loved it plus we made his actual birthday very special with yummy cupcakes and lots of singing lol

      Yes check it out. It’s such a great idea, I am starting on my task tonight and I am looking forward to seeing how much I can get done πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by!

    • I hope so, I still have a while to go but I have no problem being 40 I feel like it’s the start of some awesome times with my little people.

      I’m not sure if it’s available still but if I see it at that price again I will let you know!

  2. Happy birthday Ryan! Sounds like he had a fantastic birthday. Good luck finding the perfect bike! I’m curious about Tear You Apart. I’ve been seeing it everywhere lately but I don’t think I’ve yet to hear what people actually think of it. Have a great week!

  6. Happy Birthday Ryan!!!! They grow so fast πŸ™ we all need a lazy week from time to time, I’m going to try for one soon πŸ˜‰

    We both have Tear You Apart! How’d we end up with so many of the same NetGalley books? I think I must have copied you lol. Talk soon!

  7. Happy Birthday Ryan! They definitely do grow up fast – we have several important b-days in my family this year – my youngest will turn 10, 3rd will become a teenager, 2nd is turning 18, and my oldest 20 :O I can’t believe I’ve been a mom for almost 20 years already!!

    Being lazy is nice every now and then, but like you I have trouble getting back to being productive if I stay ‘idle’ too long. I’m glad you’ve organized things to make sure you’re on top of everything, Michelle.

    Have a fantastic week and happy reading πŸ™‚

    • That’s awesome πŸ™‚ my youngest is 7 so I have a while for them to get to teens and in the 20s but I am sure it will be here before I know it and OH NO!!! lol

      It’s amazing how I can go and go and then when I say I think I will just rest for a day and BAM I’m in lazy mode. lol

      Thanks for stopping by Lexxie πŸ™‚

  8. Happy birthday, Ryan ! My youngest is 11, so I know what you mean, kids are growing up so fast ! Task tuesday sounds good, but I would need the same incentive for home, not for blogging πŸ˜‰ Have a great week !

  9. Congrtas with Ryan’s birthday! He really looks happy in that picture. I hope he had an amazing day. I can still remember how mcuh I lvoed birthdays when I was a kid and then when you’re grown up it just isn’t that much fun anymore.
    Oh I am looking forward to the Task it Tuesday feature, it sounds fun.

    You did much better this week than me with acquiring new books. I got 5 new review books this week. I like the cover of the Witch’s Boy. I hope it is as good as it looks.

    Have a great week Michelle!

    • He is a very happy boy! and I don’t mind my birthday as an adult, I try to spend it with my family doing little thinks makes it worth not getting all those awesome gifts anymore πŸ™‚
      I love task it tuesday and I realized how ahead I can really be, so excited lol

      The cover is what got me, plus I have seen a few people talk about it and I couldn’t pass it up!

      Thanks for stopping by Lola!
