It’s been a rough two weeks. I missed posting a Weekly Wrap Up last week because of how I was feeling. I had been dealing with Covid all week and was just wiped out. My symptoms were considered mild but I still felt horrible. The worst sore throat that kept me from sleeping, fever, chills, and aches were what filled my week. I work for a very small company and I had to handle orders from home regardless of how bad I felt because the owner was in another state and there was nobody else that knew how to do it. Just as I felt good enough to go to work Monday morning, my husband’s symptoms started. His symptoms were much milder and resembled a head cold with some fever more than anything.
We had some work scheduled on the house and they decided to move forward with the job this week even though my husband was home with Covid. He stayed away from them as much as possible so hopefully, he didn’t spread it. We are having a backsplash installed and they are almost done. It has taken a lot longer than I expected. I have a saw taking up most of my counter space and their stuff all over. Cooking dinner has been a challenge and since my family has Celiac disease ordering in isn’t really an option.
I have been incredibly tired this past week. I am sure that it is from being sick for 7 days straight. I am usually awake for around 2 hours before I need to start getting ready for work but this week, I just took that time to sleep. Needless to say, my reading, blogging, and ability to engage on other blogs have suffered as a result. It was hard to focus with the things going on in the world and I have to admit that I am probably angrier than I have ever been over politics. I hope to get my mind in a better place next week.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I really enjoyed For the Throne by Hannah Whitten and was satisfied by how the duology wrapped up. Down Comes the Night by Allison Saft was different than I thought it would be but definitely worth the read. I absolutely loved Juniper & Thorn by Ava Reid but would warn others that it is very dark. Stealing Infinity by Alyson Noel was a very entertaining time-travel story and I look forward to seeing where the series will go from here. The Legacy by Elle Kennedy was my least favorite book of the series but still an entertaining read. I made it halfway through Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and decided to mark it as a dnf since I didn’t care how things would work out. I have enjoyed all of Karen Grey’s work that I have read so far and You Get What You Give continued that trend.
I haven’t read much of December ’41 by William Martin but hope to this week. I have listened to more than half of Man of War by T.J. London and am enjoying it.
