The Sunday Post (2)
The Sunday Post is a new weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news, recap your week, showcase books and things we have received and talk about what is upcoming on our blog.
This week was pretty boring for me, which was a much welcomed change from the normal. Work is still crazy. Little Man is two and having tantrums ALL. THE. TIME. Which, of course, makes for some pretty stressful days. But then he does stuff that is so funny that I can't help but laugh. The other day, I was changing his diaper and he started giggling, so I asked him what he was laughing at and he informed me he was going to "tinkle on me." He's also been walking around after his bath, before he gets dressed, and pointing to his chest and saying "i have no boobies." I'm not sure where that came from. But probably my favorite thing he's done lately is yesterday, he piled up all his "vroom-vrooms" (cars, motorcycles, dirtbikes, basically anything that goes vroom), squatted down next to them, started tapping his chin, and saying "hmmm" until he found one that he wanted to use. I was cracking up.
Today is also mother's day, so I want to give a huge shoutout to my Mom (if she's being a creeper today. She does that every so often) and tell her thank you for being the best Mom I could have. Sure, there are times we fight, there are times you embarrass me when you're singing and dancing around the kitchen, and there are times when I'm grateful that we live 11 hours away from each other so we can't strangle one another. But there are even more times that you make me laugh, that you listen to me when I'm upset, and that you help me figure my life out when I think everything is falling apart. I don't know what I would do without you Mom, and I'm sorry if I don't say it enough. I love you Mamadukes<3.
On the blog :
This week I had a busy week! On Monday, I had a guest post by Toni Aleo. Tuesday I had a review for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. Wednesday, of course, was my Waiting on Wednesday, which was Undeadly by Michele Vail. Bout of Books starts tomorrow, so I did my goal post on Thursday. Friday I took the day off, but on Saturday I posted a review of The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.
Like I mentioned, Bout of Books starts tomorrow and goes throughout the week, so you can expect to see lots of posts relating to that in the coming week!
Books received :
None! Yay! I finally went a week without getting ANY books at all, not even from the library. Success! I think I'm going to instate a new policy for myself though. Read three books, buy one. I think that seems fair, and will hopefully help me to start reading some of the books I already own instead of buying more.
Well, I think that's it for this edition of The Sunday Post! Hope you all had a great week.
