Sunday Post ~ Oh, the Exhaustion

0abf9b9e-b7ac-4d59-b451-7eb7c64ea1b9_zps47hi5hueThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.

How do you guys like my new section header? Last week’s Sunday Post was the first I featured them in, and I’m thinking of also redesigning the section headers for my review.

unnamedI am ecstatic that we have sold 94 yearbooks already! Last school year I took over in January, and we hadn’t sold this many books even by March 1, so I and the kids are celebrating like crazy.

This week consisted of several late nights. Friday after school the new committee I was asked to be a part of met, and I have what appears to be the heaviest workload of all the roles. Pretty sure that’s not going to work out well with everything else I have going on. There isn’t enough time to go around already when I am at school until 7 and 8 each evening.

I had my doctors appointments on Tuesday and my PCP is sending me to a second ENT. He wasn’t very pleased with what I told him about my visit with the first one. I’m also getting a sleep study! He thinks this might solve a lot of my issues, and help me lose weight. My other doctor, though, kind of pissed me off. I told the nurse I wanted to know what my next step of care would be, and within two minutes my doctor was in the room and asking questions…concerned that I was going to see another doctor. Which I am going to do. As much as I love her bedside manner, I’m tired of waiting to address the issue. One good test out of 18 in the last 6 years does not mean the condition is getting better.

November brings the Texas Book Festival to Austin, and I think this year I’m going to go. It’s a two-day event, and I think I’m going to rope a friend into going with me!

2505949213516846I am still trying to trudge through these two and finish them. It’s a time issue. I hope this week I can at least finish one of them.

I really have got to get at least one finished or I’m going to drive myself crazy.

my official haul from Texas Teen Book Festival



This is a feature I am adding to my Sunday Posts. After being asked by a coworker – in all seriousness – if I had a life, I decided to join disc jockey Bobby Bones of Kase 101 in doing one human thing each week.

How does it work?

In order to not lose what little sanity I have left and in order to not become enslaved to the Texas Education Agency via my school district, I will…

  • leave school within an hour of dismissal once a week
  • go do one human thing with another human
  • talk about my human thing on the blog each week

I met the buyers of my house on Wednesday. Let’s just say they travel in very different social circles and did not want to share anything about themselves or the improvements or repairs they will be doing. All I know is that there is electrical, plumbing, and roof work to be done. Oh, and my rent is jacking up $300.


Saturday I spent the entire day with my work peeps at Texas Teen Book Festival at St. Edward’s University. I had a blast, although there did not seem to be as much offering as there was last year: a limited amount and variety in books for sale, fewer signings, fewer panels, and six of the seven panels overlapped. One of my mom’s students (pictured below) was a co-moderator for a panel and got to sit with the authors. I started getting very tired and sat out the keynote closing to wait in the signing line with my friend. We wanted to take naps in the parking lot line.

Then we went to see Miss Peregrine’s House of Peculiar Children. I haven’t read the book – quite honestly, the covers scare me. After seeing the movie, I think rightly so. However, I did enjoy the movie very much. My librarian said they did not stay very true to the book in certain parts, but the cinematography was excellent.

  1. I hope seeing a new doctor will get things straightened out for you, Charlie. It’s so frustrating when your doctor won’t help you get better. Grrr! Congrats on the year book sales. That’s fantastic and I know and your committee are pleased. It looks like you had a great time at the Texas Teen Book Festival. I hope the Texas Book Festival is just as much fun for you!
    Hope you’re having a great week! 😀
