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.
This week I was on a district walk at campuses, and it was actually enjoyable. There were just some logistical issues that they now know for next time. In the process, I got to see my old partner whom I started teaching with! She went down to elementary for this school year, and The French Fry Queen made an appearance. THEN I saw my kindergarten teacher! I was off on Friday, so I was only in the classroom 3 days this week. It was nice.
There wasn’t a lot of time left over this week. I did go on Monday night to get my nails done since time ran out last weekend. I went to a place near my house (usually I go to a place near The Man’s house) and I LOVED it. The best salon I have ever been to, and the guy working on me was not afraid to dig around at my toes – which is the #1 reason why I go get pedicures. I think I might make this my go-to place…even after I move. I also spent one entire night updating all the official stuff for jobs. I started looking and applying to about a dozen new jobs. The one I found during spring break that I was really interested in had already closed, but I’m moving forward with this.
The Man’s parents came in for the week. They flew in on Monday and they flew out late afternoon yesterday. Then they’re flight was delayed until 8pm last night. It was snowing back home, and it was 80s all week here. They went to The Alamo and the River Walk one day, to the rodeo the next day, and to the outlet malls (which they don’t have back home). I was nervous meeting The Man’s stepmom, but after I initially arrived things were off to a great start. She looks like a little pixie and she cracks me up. She LOVED Baby and Cera, and they loved her. We went to a classic car museum (my idea) and it was awesome! The Man even bought me a car!
The bedroom furniture is also FINALLY being delivered this week. The Man and I have been living out of suitcases with clothes strewn all over the place for weeks. He purchased the furniture two months ago and it is finally being
The week started going really well with my Instagram goal (of increasing my followers). By midweek I was up 30-something followers…and then all of a sudden I had more unfollowing than following and those numbers started going down. I think the Crowdfire app is also sucking my battery. I don’t know if it’s worth it. I guess I’ll keep using it for a while and examine the results.
This week I didn’t do much work around the blog (again). My goal this week was to get all my reviews for the year cross-posted, but that is decidedly not going to happen. Maybe next weekend when The Man is sleeping and at work.
Hopefully this coming week I am able to get around to visiting and commenting. There was no extra time for me to get around to it this week. I only got a few more chapters into The Piper’s Price. I hope I get a little farther today.

My students and I finished The Phantom Tollbooth on Monday. Hoooraaay! We’ve only been reading it since the beginning of December.
I also finished To Move the World and started reading The Piper’s Price. I’m still not very far into it yet (less than 10 chapters), but I already have ideas swirling around about what is going to happen. After finishing up this one, I’ll be moving back to my NetGalley list of books.
