The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It is a weekly news post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase the books and other goodies you’ve received, and share news about upcoming events on your blog. Be creative and personalize it! To get in on the Sunday fun day, see the rules here: Suday Post Meme.
This week was a breeze. Monday my students were in the library. Tuesday I was off and had to settle up with my ticket and an appointment, and I had so much time in between I was able to get my eye exam (six months late). I ordered new glasses that I LOVED on my face. I always have issues finding frames that fit my apparently super wide face. It is an ugly battle and I get upset every year trying on dozens and dozens of cute frames that won’t fit. All in, exam and glasses, was less than $175. The best I’ve ever made out with new glasses.
I ended up spending the day waiting around for an appointment I didn’t need – and the doctor ended up canceling. It was a follow-up set up before test results came in, so I was peeved I waited around and didn’t need it. BUT I had something to celebrate by it being canceled – I have had my tests come back for two consecutive years with good results. That means no more annual biopsies. No more three trips a year to be monitored. That’s been my life for the past five years, and now I only have to do my one annual appointment. I kicked cancer to the curb! Hi-cha!
Wednesday morning I was out of my classroom but on campus planning a big project for my students. I did this last year, too, around this time with my partner. I was overwhelmed when my SPED co-teacher, both instructional specialists for my campus and my principal were all there asking a million questions. The whole point was that we were planning it! They needed to come back in an hour or so after we got rolling and had ideas and materials pulled so we had something to show them and get input. Thursday was an easy day with our lesson and we had no school on Friday.
It felt like eons for me to finish Christmas at Two Love Lane. It is one of my NetGalley books. Every time I would pick this up to read I would get interrupted or fall asleep. I thought I was going to love this book based on the premise. A matchmaking service made up of three young, single ladies and their older widowed friend. Set in Charleston, the MC living on Battery Street. Christmas season in full swing. I wanted to fall in love with this book, but I found some of the scenarios and at times the MC annoying and unrealistic. I predict there will be books about each of the other matchmakers as well.
I worked on a few blog posts throughout the week, so I feel I am going to stay above water for the rest of the month. Then I can start working on posts further out and keep up with an actual schedule. I participated in my first ever Instagram challenge. See my photos for #HoHoHoRAT below.
I started reading a new book. I think this was an Amazon freebie, Chocolate Kisses and Love Filled Wishes.

This girl slept with me all night! She would not leave my side, even when Richard and Cera crawled in bed. She has not done this for the past three years. We try every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night to get her to stay with me. She will until Richard walks out of the room and then she's gone. But not last night. Cera came and went all night, Richard came in and then went back to the couch. And Baby stayed. #nobodyputsbabyinthecorner #mamasgirl #mamababy #ourtime #snuggles #cuddles #doggysnores #mybaby #dogmom #doglife #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinsta
