*wipes brow* Whew!  Survived a rough week and came out the other side still smiling, still functional, still getting my feet back under me from the stomach flu that ran rampant through my family.  I feel like singing “I Will Survive” quite loudly.  🙂

I’ve decided to add my own weekly wrap up to everyone else’s over at Caffeinated Reviewer.  Kimberly has created such a welcoming feature/meme with the Sunday Post that this is the perfect way to keep me accountable by also posting over there.  The link is up above, so go visit if you haven’t already discovered this pretty amazing woman’s site.  I always (always) come away with more book ideas, end up spending book money (I’m sure Amazon loves when I go visit a Sunday Post offering) and discover lovely blogs.  So you should check it out, soon.

How in the world did it get to be December 1st?  I mean – really, how?  I’ve accomplished some of what I’ve got written in that cute planner of mine, but certainly not all that I had intended.  And… I need to map out the changes and plans for my two blogs for 2020 (like now) so I can start the scheduling of posts for 2020.

Do you hold over unfulfilled plans from the previous year… or rework them into something different… or just scrap them?  I kinda do a combination of all of that.  Some things that sounded like the greatest idea ever – weren’t, so those get scrapped.  Then I usually rework the things that didn’t get done but still really need to be accomplished in maybe a different format or plan.  If it couldn’t get my attention last year then I have to change it up to work next year – or at least that’s my thinking on unfulfilled blog goals.

I’ve managed to get almost caught up from the 7-10 days when I could barely sit at the computer for more than half an hour – still have 4 reviews that need up today so they’ll be in that “publication week” deadline.  Life happens to all of us, but I try very hard when that happens to at least get reviews that I’ve committed to up and online before the start of the next “publication week” for the next round of releases.  Sometimes I win that battle, sometimes I lose depending on how hard “life” hit that time.  But I’m feeling good that I’ll be caught up and able to get to work on scheduled posts as well as current ones in the next day or so.  Not bad really, not after coming back looking like a “Walking Dead” extra with really bad zombie makeup.  🙂

Okay, I think that’s gonna wrap it up.  I will start listing the reviews done and the ones scheduled at some point, probably nearer to the New Year.  I truly want to be a bit more organized before I start that so I need another week or so to pull that schedule together.

I hope your week is awesome and full of really, really good books!

I have loved visiting the blogs that follow The Sunday Post and decided that it’s time to join up myself.  Hey, you can never have enough book-friends, right?


Away from the Keyboard News –

For the last month, I’ve been sorta quiet and there have been a few reasons for that.  One reason is simply amazing – the other sucked sour pickle juice.  My amazing news is that I finally got brave and had cataracts removed from both eyes, about 2 weeks or so apart.  I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful the world truly is when you can actually see it.  My final appt. is this coming week for the last checkup and glasses for distance.  Now here is something I never knew, you actually have a choice to be near-sighted or far-sighted after this surgery because the lens is removed (that’s what the cataract is growing on) and basically, a grounded pair of glasses in the form of the new lens is the replacement.  Really, I had no clue, and of course, I said let me see up close again without glasses!  *huge grin*  I’ll need glasses to see distance and that is part of what this week’s appointment is about.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer.  It’s a place where we can share news, showoff that book haul or just get caught up on what’s happening on our blogs and/or our lives… we do have a life away from the keyboard, right?  Just checking, sometimes I wonder about myself.  🙂
