Weekly Check-in: a couple of very disappointing reads!

July 28, 2022

weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

This week has been rough, honestly. My work hours were cut in half (Idk yet if it’s temporary or permanent), my mom’s puppy got bitten by some sort of venomous spider or snake and had a terrible reaction (he’s fine now, thankfully, but it was scary!), the kittens got spayed last week and I was a horrible bundle of anxiety, and mental health has been rough going between all of the above plus some chronic illness and chronic pain flare-ups. Needless to say, I’m worn out. 😭 I’m ready to say goodbye to July! Hopefully August will be better, especially since the running joke in our home is that August 1st is “Halloween 1st”. 😂🎃 I need the spooky season, please!

just finished

The good news: I read a decent amount over the past week! The bad news: two of my reads over the last week were highly anticipated books featuring some of my favorite horror tropes, and both of those books bombed. 😂

While I did read a good bit over the past week, almost none of it came from this list. Oops. 😅

and everything else

We needed some calming TV in our house this week, which meant a lot of hours re-watching old episodes of Cutthroat Kitchen! It’s always been one of mine and my spouse’s favorite comfort shows for some reason. Does anyone else have unusual comfort shows? ♥

    1. Aw honey, I’m so sorry everything has been so hard for you lately. I hope next week picks up and things turn around for you. Did your kitties do okay with their surgery? It stinks two anticipated books were so disappointing. I hate that. Here’s hoping you find a great GOOD book soon! 💜

      1. Thank you so much, love 🥺 The kitties did great, thankfully! Ceylon struggled a bit with getting the anesthesia out of her system, but they were both totally back to normal within about two days. ♥

    1. Oh, no!! I’m sorry it’s been a rough week. Also, not cool about your job. 😞 adding two disappointing reads to it all is not great. Hoping your next read will be amazing & your week too! 💜🤗

Say hello! ♥
