Weekly Check-in: almost time to say goodbye to October already?

weekly check-in

It’s time for a weekly check-in!

life update

How the hell is October almost over?! I did not give this month permission to go by so quickly. 😭 I’m excited that Halloween is in a few short days, though, and November is usually a much quieter month in my home than October or December, so I’m hoping to get some downtime to relax at home and watch movies and read lots of books. 😅 This week was quieter than the rest of the month, but I still don’t think I’ve fully recuperated from the non-stop family outings. Also, yesterday was my and my spouse’s wedding anniversary, so we went out for a date night and an underground cave ghost tour earlier this week that was SO much fun!

just finishedFinally, a week of mostly enjoyable reading! 🥳 This was the best reading week I’ve had all month as far as star ratings go.

📚 current reads 📚

Hey, I’m back down to 6 current reads! 🥳 I’m hoping to finish Partying with Pixies and All Hallows today, and then I REALLY want to finish all 4 of the others by this time next week. 😬

and everything else We’re a few days behind on our “31 days of horror” list for the month because we’ve been so busy, but we did watch some pretty memorable ones over the past week — some were memorable in a good way, like The Boogeyman, while others were memorable in a… not so good way, like Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. 😂

Feel free to friend me on Letterboxd if you wanna see my movie mini reviews!

What are you reading right now, or what did you recently finish? Is anything exciting happening in your life? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Happy anniversary! I also felt like October flew by…what the heck. I’m kind of sad Halloween season is almost over; I feel like I haven’t been able to fully settle into it yet. Glad you had a great week of reading and hope that streak continues!

      1. Thank you! I’m sad about October going by so fast, too. I got my fill of Halloween festivities so I can’t really complain, but it’s just so much fun I’m always sad to see it end 😅

    1. Happy Anniversary! Mine was the 24th😁 Although we didn’t do anything half as exciting as you.

    1. I have been enjoying your 31 days of Horror because so many of our watches have accidentally lined up and it’s like we accidentally buddy watched.

Say hello! ♥
