Monday Update, Stacking the Shelves, Sunday Post

My Week in Review 2017 #47

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:

First, the big news… I found an apartment!!!! Finally! I don’t move in until sometime next week, but just knowing I’ve got it is a huge relief! It’s less than 10 miles from work, which means my commute will only be about 15 minutes one-way, depending on traffic. After the long commutes I’ve had, I’m pretty excited by this!

Work-wise, this week was insane. Anyone who lives in the US knows of the phenomenon which is Black Friday, the day which starts the season of getting retailers out of the red and into the black in profit and sales for the year {this is where the name comes from, if you didn’t know}. The start of the week was full of preparation, then at 6pm on Thursday night we took off with a bang and are still going!

I spent the holiday here in Washington with the friend that I’m staying with and her family. It was really nice. My family doesn’t make a huge deal over Thanksgiving, so I didn’t feel adrift at all.

Book-wise, I got a lot of audio reading done this week, though not a lot of physical reading. I have a feeling this will be the norm through the rest of the year as I move and get settled in. Plus it’s my busiest time of year at work, so that means less reading time as well.

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to post an update next week, as I’m not sure when my internet will be hooked up, but I’ll post an update as soon as I am able. In the meantime, would anyone be interested in an apartment tour once I get moved in? I plan on doing a bookshelf tour when I get my book cases set up and organized, but if you’d like to see more, I’ll be happy to do a full tour. Let me know in the comments.

  1. Congratulations on finding an apartment. I’d love a tour. I’m glad your Thanksgiving was nice. With a brother working in retail, I hear stories about how crazy things are Black Friday and after. I don’t contribute to the chaos though. I didn’t leave the house. Come see my week here. Have a great week!
