Week 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 @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
On the Blog & Real Life:
So I must have never turned off the snow from last year and while looking at comments I noticed it was snowing on my blog. For a second I thought I was going nuts then I remembered during the month of December it snows on your blog. 🙂 At least it’s snowing someplace because the weather here has been so stupid I want to cry. I want cold and snow, not sun and warm, if I wanted that I would move to Florida!!! 🙂
I did almost all of my Christmas Shopping and I am almost done, BUT my kids wanted to get a hamster. Well they wanted two hamsters but they usually end up fighting as they get older and I don’t want two cages, I already have that for the hermit crabs. SO I found these little buggers called Robo Hamsters or Roborovski Hamsters. They are SO CUTE but they are fast little guys, they can be tamed but it takes a bit of time and they are social so you can have more then one. I thought problem solved, but nope now we are fighting over which kind we want, two boys or two girls. Still also trying to figure out when to get them, if I should just buy the cage and wait until after Christmas to get the Hamsters or get the cage and Hamster but I have no place to put them until Christmas Eve. Well I might be able to find a place but I have a little bit of time to think it over yet. Have any of you had Roborovski Hamsters?
OH and I found my Christmas lights, these don’t burn your cornea. They were the same as the old ones I had. I told my husband and he said “don’t take down the tree, that is ridiculous, just leave it how it is, use them next year”. He will be at the Jets game today, guess what I will be doing. 😉 Next year my ass, my eyeballs are killing me!!!
Also got a new client for Limabean Designs, it’s an up and coming You Tuber. I got an email from my son (who has his own channel) asking if I could make his logo for him. Don’t ask me why he emailed me since we live in the same house. 😉 I told him I would but it would cost him money or a clean room. Believe it or not he told me no to both. LOL I will still do it but I will work on the clean room payment.
This week I really didn’t get as much blogging done as I would have liked since I had to work late a couple of days due to one of my co-workers being out. Looks like next week I might be working late also because he might not be back for a while (he’s sick). I am hoping by the time this posts I will have a made a large dent in my to-do list. I have quite a few posts to get up for next week but they are pretty easy since they are guest posts from some of you lovely people! 🙂
I think I might be in a reading slump, this couldn’t have come at a worse time. I am at 93 books read this year, I was hoping to get to 100, but I can’t seem to find a book I want to read, HOWEVER, just on a whim I picked up Ready Player One and I got the swirly butterflies in my tummy saying that I might really like this book. So fingers crossed for me since I might have stopped a slump before it even started.
If you are still here after this really long post, believe it or not when I started this post I had nothing to write, you are the best 🙂
