Week in READview:
Real life & Blogging:
Last weekend when I posted my Sunday post I wasn’t feeling all that great. By Sunday morning it felt like I was swallowing razor blades and then my daughter tells me she isn’t feeling good either so both of the girls in this house took a trip to the doctor on Monday. Sunday we basically slept all day and Monday I took a half day to go to the doctor and kept my daughter home so my mom could take her. She had strep throat and I had a viral infection with strep throat. So we both got some pretty good meds and are feeling so much better now. I feel like once we got home from vacation we all fell apart. Which is usually what happens, right?
I sort of feel off the planet for the week since I wasn’t feeling well. My Mother’s day was ok, I fell asleep for most of it but my family got me some pretty awesome books (4 books actually) and two bottles of wine (which I wasn’t able to drink because I was sick) You can see the books I got below! 🙂
While I was at the doctor I also spoke to him about my anxiety and he gave me something that he thinks will help. I am familiar with the meds since my son was on them. Once I am done with the antibiotics, I will start the medicine for anxiety. It is a low dose and I am hoping that will be enough to help get my head in a better place. The last few weeks have been rough with some crazy triggers but I will get there.
Next weekend will be our first weekend going to the shore. I am not sure how excited I am about it, sadly. As much as I love going it is such a hassle to pack everyone up and get a sitter for the kittens and go away but that might be the anxiety talking. We have decided that this year we wont be going down as often since we are trying to save up money and get ahead and that means we need to cut back on some stuff. This world isn’t getting any cheaper and we need to adjust our spending, which sucks because 2019 has a lot of great books coming out that I need!!!! 😉
The blog has been quiet and I apologize for that. I haven’t been commenting or visiting again. I will be spend today writing posts and organizing my next few weeks, like actually making a schedule and I am hoping the meds will help when I start them, fingers crossed it will make my head less chaotic.
Challenges and Readathons:
What I am watching:
I can’t get enough of Rizzoli and Isles, I forgot how great this show was. I am currently on season 4 and have 3 more seasons to go. The last 4 seasons where longer so I am hoping to be finished with it before the weekend but I think I will need another week before I am done. I am really enjoying watching these.
I am doing ok with my reading, I was able to finish two books this week but the audio for my TBR Winning Killing November was NOT working for me at all. I HATED the narrator, like she talked too fast and her voices all sounded the same. I was going to get the ebook but I didn’t want to spend $10 for an ebook. Instead I returned the audio book and got the second winner on the list in Audio, One of Us is Lying, so far that is better but I realize, audio just isn’t for me. I just don’t get the voices people make, some don’t sound different and when it’s multi narrators the voices are all over the place but I am trying just might not do it that often or for a TBR again.
