The 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: Suday Post Meme.
Cera has been a bad dog this week. She chewed up the man’s work shoes, chewed completely through a laptop cord, got into my IKEA bag of wall hangings and destroyed my funeral program from my aunt’s funeral as well as a photo of my cousin, shredded one of my plants outside, destroyed the case of one of my favorite movies, and she chewed on the cord of a vacuum in addition to her normal pooping in Baby’s room. The man ordered a gate to keep her in the kitchen, but I honestly don’t know how well that will work. He does not want to crate her at all, and I think she should at night and when we are gone. It’s very frustrating. I welcome input.
On the work front I am so stressed. My yearbook kids meet for two hours on Monday evenings to work, and they are not being very productive because they aren’t doing the non-computer work during the week and coming back on Monday ready to put that on their pages. I already foresee me finishing the entire rest of the book.

Late Tuesday night I finished Crows & Cards. It had a spectacular ending, I will say. Since it was so late I didn’t update my WWW post for Wednesday. I have now finished three audiobooks this year! That’s half of my goal!
I’m currently working on the next book in the Darling, VT series. Somebody’s Baby isn’t quite what I expected. I just read a scene that was interesting and odd. I’m looking forward to finishing it, although I have had a hard time with writing my reviews lately. They are starting to pile up, and honestly, I don’t feel like writing them. I just want to read. So I am going to lay off on starting another audiobook for a while. My students and I finished chapter 10 of The Phantom Tollbooth. We are about halfway through.
I started this feature as part of my Sunday Posts in the fall. 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
On Friday a couple of work friends and I ran out quickly to have a sit-down early dinner before the Valentine’s Dance started. It was nice to catch up for just a moment. They are two of my favorite people. They are both quite older than me, and one reminds me very much of my own mother. She is eccentric and compassionate and I adore her. It was nice to have that hour to ourselves. I feel so disconnected this year and quality time with my coworkers is much needed.
