The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~
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.
It has been hot here! Like in the high 90's low 100's hot and while I love summer, I so can not deal with that kind of heat. I feel like the Wicked Witch in Wizard of Oz...I'm melting, I'm meeeellllting!
This past week was terrible book reading wise. With company in town I got a big whooping 1 book read. One. Book.
I can't even begin to tell you how often that does not happen around here. To be honest, I am slightly panicking over that number. I will have a lot of catching up to do this coming week if I am ever going to get any of the books I planned to read this summer read.
But that is okay..right? Right? Seriously. Trying not to panic over here.
Good news though, my dad was here and it was wonderful to see him. My girls had a blast seeing their grandpa and it was nice just to hang out and relax and not worry too much about my blog or my reading. I actually think I needed the break.
Also good news, I ordered a new laptop and it should be here sometime this week. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this. My laptop now is, are you ready for this? It's slightly horrifying...four years old. In the computer world, that is pretty ancient! Actually, it isn't that it is old so much as that it just doesn't do everything I want it to anymore and the screen is going out so sometimes trying to see on it is great fun and requires some nudging and sometimes even banging to get it to come back, if it does at all. It freezes a lot of the time and it about as temperamental as a cranky chihuahua. Needless to say this purchase is long overdue.
It comes with windows 8.1 so, yeah, it might take me awhile to get it all straightened out since I have no experience whatsoever with it. Wish me luck blogsphere, I may need it!
This past week on my blog it was way calmer than the previous week, which was nice because the week before was insane.
