This week was a blur. Except for the hours spent at work which seemed to drag on forever. It seems that is how life goes these days. This week was busier than normal at our house. My husband celebrated his birthday on Monday and my oldest daughter turned 27 on Thursday (HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?). We met some family for dinner out Monday night to celebrate which was really nice. Plus I didn’t have to cook that night which is always a bonus!
My younger daughter went back to college on Friday. I spent a lot of time this week making sure the laundry stayed caught up and just making sure that she would be ready when it was time to go. I made an effort to spend some extra time with her in the evenings since it may be weeks or even months before we see her again.
I tried to keep up with reviews but I was otherwise horrible when it came to the blog this week. I just didn’t have a lot of time to sit down with my computer and blog hop for return comments. I can do Instagram on my phone so I can work that into my workday. Since I use my laptop to comment on blogs, I need time to actually sit down and do those things. Hopefully, I can get back to my routine now that we are truly past the holidays. Once again, thank you for hanging in there with me.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I was able to finish 3 books this week which was honestly a bit of a miracle. I spent much of Sunday reading Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano and found this sequel to be just as much fun as the first book. I have been putting off starting the audiobook of The Outlaw Demon Wails by Kim Harrison for months because the narrator is different than the rest of the series. She wasn’t the worst narrator but I will be glad to get back to Marguerite Gavin for the rest of the series. I read most of The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlain yesterday and absolutely loved it. How have not read her work before now?!?
I have listened to 27% of Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti. This is a re-read for me but I honestly don’t remember anything from the first time I read this book. I haven’t started it just yet but by the time you are reading this post, I should have read just a bit of The Best Men by Sarina Bowen & Lauren Blakely. I have high hopes for this book!
