Sunday Matters: Here We Are, Almost To The End Of June

Sunday Matters

It’s been quiet on the blog this week. I wasn’t feeling great and had an allergic reaction to some medication after that so although I had things to say, I was feeling too dizzy to actually sit down and say them. Starting to feel a tiny bit better.

June. It’s nearly at its end. Everything is a countdown for me these days with these two kids about to head out.

Right Now:

Just taking it easy and enjoying some coffee. There is so much to do but I gotta take a break.

This Week:

I had to take care of a mound of paperwork for various things last week. Most of it is done but need to finish that up this week because it keeps gnawing at my brain. Between switching the kids over to a new dentist and sending a kid off to college you really fill out a lot of paper. Seems like an antiquated way to do things today.

I hope to get back into my reading saddle and even add a review or two to the blog this week. I’ve been reading all of your blogs and comments though so at least I am up to date there.

Reading:

Diving into Before She Disappeared by Lisa Gardner for 10 Books of Summer.

Before She Disappeared

Watching:

Loki. Kind of getting into it now.

Hollywood by Ryan Murphy of American Horror Story fame. It’s weird to see Hollywood in that light. Actors play screen greats like Rock Hudson, etc. It’s a little humorous and very scandalous. Visually, stunning. Murphy is known for that.

Grateful for:

  • I am grateful that I am still working from home right now. This past week was rough and working from home allowed me to get my work done on a flexible schedule and still take some time to care for myself. It’s really so important and moms tend to always put themselves last.

  1. I’m glad that you are starting to feel better – and that you also are taking a break this morning. Sometimes it’s just good to take a deep breath (or two or three or 10). Hope the rest of your day goes as well.

    1. The day was fine and after I shut all the blinds and made the house a tomb, it was pretty comfortable. I didn’t get any reading done though.

  2. Hope you are back to your old self soon. I’ve been dealing with more knee issues and need to schedule doc /dentist appts. We are having a brief visit from out-of-state family this week as they pass through on business and a birthday coming up for our youngest granddaughter who will be 7.

    I hope you like Before She Disappeared, I really enjoyed it. Have a good week.

  3. Allergic reactions are scary. Glad you’re starting to feel better! I’m having a hard time focusing on writing reviews. Instead of a reading slump, I’m in a review writing slump. Ugh! Have a great week.

    1. That’s the thing with book blogging… I have to READ the books so I can review them. This month just flew by. I am a bit behind.

  4. Yeah working from home is good — wish it could always be that way. My husband has to go back sometime in July. hmm, he’s Not looking forward to it. It appears I will be flying to LA in August and staying at the beach to see my folks for about 10 days. So I’ll gear up for that. My mom is not doing too well. I hope your summer goes smoothly …

  5. I’m sorry you have been feeling well. Allergies have really kicked in around here. It’s all the rain, I think, that has got the mold going.

    Paperwork is ridiculous at times. Every time I have to give blood I have to answer the same questions. Some of them do not need to be asked repeated times…”How many pregnancies have you had?” “What was the date of your last pregnancy?” Blood center folks, I’m 64. There are some things that are not going to change!

    I’m glad you have flexibility right now at work. There are some definite advantages to working at home.

    1. Oh my. I had no idea they asked those questions before donating blood. I can never donate because I am so severely anemic so I never knew!

  6. I’m sorry to hear you weren’t feeling good. I’m so glad you’re taking care of yourself! So few women practice self-care! Thank you for sharing on your blog and I hope you’re 100% soon!

  7. Working from home is the best, especially when you also have overwhelming personal tasks you need to get done. Paperwork is the worst! Especially medical. I remember filling out paperwork when I took my Mom to an ortho check up on her HIP replacement and they wanted to know her complete surgical history? Seriously? Even ones way back in the 1950s and 1960s????

    As for me, I’m trying to file my paperwork as it comes in, but when I don’t I toss it on a to be filed pile and tackle that every quarter. Well, guess what. Q2 ends on Wednesday so I’d better deal with that pile today or tomorrow since I have those days off. lol

  8. I am sorry you had a rough week and hope you have recovered from the reaction to the medicine. That’s scary stuff.

    Enjoy the Lisa Gardner book, I’ve heard good things about it so look forward to seeing what you think.

  9. I hope by now you are feeling much better and the allergic reactions are gone or much reduced.

    I know what you mean about the paperwork. I had to do tons of that last two weeks and I still have one left that I’m trying to delay until it’s really needed.

    We started watching Loki on Sunday and gotta say, I love it! I generally like Loki so it was nice to see more of him but I will be sad if this series is the end of him, esp as he died in the main timeline. Oh who are we kidding, Marvel will find a way to bring him back if they want to.

    1. I do enjoy Loki’s character. I like him more as a villain though.

      I feel almost better. I hesitate to say it because as soon as I say I feel 100% a little bit of nausea hits me. Hard to imagine a drug staying in your system for that long but I’ve always had food allergies so it’s no wonder that a medication can join in on the fun.

  10. It’s hard to believe that June came and went! My husband’s birthday was Sunday, so I’m catching up on blogs. Trying to anyway. I haven’t read much lately either, but I did finish an audiobook, which I reviewed earlier this week. I hope to finish maybe one more for next week. We’ll see how it goes.
