The Sunday Post # 66: Work Work Work



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its a chance to share news ~ A Post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Life:

This week has been a crazy busy one. On Monday morning I finished my last nightshift. I spend the day cleaning up our home and trying to get back in my normal rhythm. On Tuesday my best girlfriend came by. We did some very necessary catching up, had a nice homemade lunch and then we watched wedding pictures. She hadn’t seen them all yet, and it was nice to finally be able to show them to her.

Wednesday and Thursday I had to work again. Thursday after work I had a dinner date with another girlfriend. We hadn’t seen each other in a view months so it was very nice to catch up. We had dinner in this nice café/restaurant we’ve never been at before. The food was very tasty, and not very expensive and I’ll definitely be going there again someday.

Friday was another busy day at work. And this weekend, well… I had the weekend off but we were really understaffed so I’m working this weekend too. Not the whole shift, only till 1 pm since I also have to work Monday and Tuesday. But it will be a pretty long week. Working 7 days is just too much. But I’ll get through it!

Books & Blogging:

I didn’t get a lot of reading time in this week. Between working, spending time with my girlfriends, and spending some quality time with my husband, life has been pretty damn busy. Blogging wise I did make some posts. But my Blog Ahead Challenge isn’t going very well! Hopefully this week will be better.

Maureen’s Books Promotions is celebrating! There’s a giveaway going on since starting my new business is definitely worth a little party I think!! So don’t forget to enter ;)

  9. I wish my schedule aligned with my friends in such a way that we could have lunch together in the middle of the week. That must be nice to have that time to do that, or do something else you want! Those days do sound tiring, though. Some well deserved rest and relaxation is just what the doctor ordered. :)

    1. It definitely has its perks being able to see friends during the week. I would love to be able to spend every weekend and holiday with my family though.
