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.

Our students spent one day this week taking the benchmark, which was last year’s released state standardized test. They did better than all the complaining and griping we’ve heard all year long from admin. My group was amazing, even after they were all finished – which is the hard part!
I’ve been in the feels lately, reflecting on life and thinking about things. I think The Man’s parents coming down sparked some if it, and working with one particular student who’s a little different keeps bringing my cousin to mind.
I am also starting to heavily stress about the announcement I have to wait to tell you guys about. I never really was one good at patience.
I spent Saturday driving nearly three hours away to see a sweet friend. She has lived in Australia for the last 7 years, and I first met her when I was about 11 or 12. She was one of the counselors at the STEM camp at IBM and I thought she was the coolest thing ever. She had pink and then later teal streaks in her hair, a nose ring, and this unassuming confidence and just zen nature that I love. I wanted to be just like her, and I still do. She’s an amazing person and I was so glad I got to see her while she was visiting the States. The last time I saw her I was 13 – over half of my life ago!
I was pretty quiet this week on Instagram. I was too focused on other things, I guess.
This was my view yesterday. Visiting an old and dear friend who made the trek from Australia. Outside all day long in the sunshine and shade, watching kids run around and getting a waterballoon or two. An old obstacle course and zip line and a paddock out back. #simplelife #friendship #green #outdoors #nature
I did get a lot of reading done this week! In fact, I finished 3 books this week!! All f a sudden, I
got into craved these stories and people. I really identified with some aspects of several of the characters I read about, especially those in the Sanctuary Islands series. I think I might go buy the rest of the series because I loved two of the books so much.
I didn’t do much work on the blog all this week, which isn’t going to help me get any ahead, but I tried to get caught up and stay current with visits and comments. Thank you for not abandoning me totally. I will say given the nature of my mood and what I know I have going on, I probably won’t be around much this week. I will try, but there are no guarantees.
