My Week in Review 2018 #1

This is my week in review, where I update you on my life~ reading, blogging and general. I will also be linking up with some amazing blogs.

Sunday Post

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, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Life Happenings:

I hope everyone’s 2018 has gotten off to a great start!

Personally, I have been drowning in boxes! It’s been a week and I feel like I am no where near unpacked yet! The important things are done {kitchen, bathroom, clothes, books}, but I just have so much stuff… it’s ridiculous and I’ll be talking about it soon. Meanwhile I continue working on unpacking more everyday after work. And I use my days off for the bigger projects. Little by little it will all get done.

In addition to all of the unpacking, I’ve also added about a million new blogs to my reader, so the process of sorting them out has begun as well. Not every blog that I added will be a good fit for me, but I don’t know until I try them out for a while. And because I am slightly OCD and have systems and routines that I need to follow for certain things… it’s kind of a long elimination process. {Maybe this ties into why I have so much stuff!}

Now that the craze of the holidays are over, focus at work has shifted to cleaning and getting back to the basics. Especially since I received very big news this week that indirectly affects my position and my store. {Nothing bad, just change} The next few months will be interesting and potentially challenging.

Because my focus has been elsewhere, I didn’t get a lot done reading-wise, so I feel like I’m already behind for the year. I’m trying not to stress over it, because that takes the fun away from reading! And I also know that once I get everything sorted, I’ll have so much more time to read than I’ve had in the last year, so I’ll catch up… it just might not be until February that it happens.
