My Week in Review 2018 #2

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:

This week has been a struggle. And that just pretty much sums everything up. It hasn’t been bad, just really stressful and exhausting and I think my brain is just too full right now and needs a break. I have been so focused on taking care of things at work and trying to unpack everything at the apartment that I’ve forgotten to take care of myself. This is a huge no-no for me, because it’s partly through self-care that I manage my depression and anxiety. Thankfully I caught it early, I think, so I can adjust and get back on track where I need to be.

That being said, reading did not happen this week… so I am already way behind for the year, but I think I can catch up as soon as I get this apartment done. At this point I think I’d settle for one completed room! The bathroom and kitchen are really close to done, but I need to purchase things to finish both of them. The bedroom is about half-way, but the living room, office, dining room area is no where close to done. I need to purchase things for those rooms too. Thankfully most of what I need to buy is not too expensive, but I still need to budget for them right now. I can’t decide which bigger piece I should get first though… a microwave for the kitchen, a curio cabinet for the livingroom {I have 4 small boxes to be unpacked of things to go in there}, or a fourth bookcase for the bedroom {right now the books are stacked in front of the books on one of my other bookcases}. The only other higher priced item I need is a new comforter and sheets, but I can make do with what I have for now.
