It’s Monday! is a weekly meme originally hosted over at Book Journey that allows bloggers to post a sort of wrap-up of the past week while also looking to the week ahead. Without further ado…
Last Week: Adulting lesson of the week – when someone has helped you move in the past, you reciprocate. Which means that I spent Saturday helping my roommate’s sister move into a new apartment. Promised help from a group of her husband’s friends didn’t pan out, so the four of us tackled everything. By the end of the day, my mantra was “I’m strong and independent, I’m strong and independent”, which I kept repeating for strength as I dragged ottomans/heavy boxes/mattress and box springs up to the second floor. We got it all done in great time, then went out for a nice dinner. Thankfully, Sunday was much better, as I hosted my life group for a night of playing Concept!
The reading was pretty good this week. What I am finding is that even though I thought I’d have more reading time after my switch to day shift, the opposite is true. My time in the evening is spent watching TV or playing games with the roomies, doing adult things like shopping and chores, or just lolling around on the couch staring into space. Plus, no one told me that I would want to go to bed so early! Curses on early mornings!

Looking Ahead: Because we missed July’s, Katie and I are tentatively planning for a reading challenge in September. What that means for me is that I am trying to get through all the stuff I have checked out, some challenge stuff, a review copy or two…any loose ends that could trip me up later. It’s a race with time, one I’m not entirely certain that I can win!
Right now, all I want to do is curl up for a nap on this rainy day! Have a good week, everyone!
