Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.  See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

On Friday as I put this post together, I realized three of next weeks posts were in draft. I have listened to them and made notes but hadn’t written my reviews. Never have I ever felt so unorganized. I can report that I am feeling better. The illnesses have left me rather tired and looking a tad pale, but plenty of rest has helped. I visited everyone who stopped by again this week.  Between work and watching the Royals I have been taking the weekends off.  I am hoping now that I am feeling more like me, I will get to visit all the Sunday Posters during the upcoming week.  It has been bitter cold and I plan to spend the weekend catching up on reviews and after some napping I hope to listen to Wild Country by Anne Bishop. Stay warm, spring is coming…   Stay Caffeinated.

    Hey, so glad you getting better. I haven’t been as faithful to you as normal (saved heaps of money though?) I haven’t been the best and only doing what I need and work is my priority, pays for the books. So hello, stay well and I am going to catch up.

  2. Lindsi

    I’m sorry you’ve been feeling bad! It’s going around here as well. One of the twins was sick earlier this week, and then my husband, and now the son… ugh. It’s down to me and the other twin, but she was pointing to her stomach before bed and saying, “ow”, so I’m not going to hold my breath. Hopefully it skips me, because taking care of sick kids while you’re sick is the worst. I can’t just lay in bed all day, haha. Parenting is hard! 😉

    I’m sure you’ll get organized in no time!

    I’m glad you’re feeling better though that recover period can take awhile. I hope you keep getting plenty of rest even when you start feeling better. I can relate to the disorganization! I’m still struggling with getting back on track for being sick for all of November and December! Have a great week!

  4. Brandee @ (un)Conventional Bookworms

    I hope you can get well and stay well, lady. I’m sending healing vibes your way. I’m with you on the cold. It’s 9 here this morning. My kids had a “snow” day last week and not because we had too much snow. (that’d have to be like 3 ft) It was because it was negative 13 and the buses apparently don’t like to run when it’s that cold. Ha! I can commiserate with you on the disorganization, my dear. That’s kinda my constant state and I don’t see it getting better until after May when my kids graduate. :O I still can’t believe that’s happening. But I’ll do my best to stay on top of things…and get back to being a better blog visitor. <3

    I’m thrilled you hear you’re on the upswing. I hope you got lots of naps this weekend. I know I sure could use one right about now! Happy reading, Kimba. And don’t feel too bad or unorganized. You are too hard on yourself.

  6. Angel's Guilty Pleasures

    That’s great news that you are feeling better. The sickness made it into our house and we all had some type of cold. It’s almost gone, but still just a little of hit hanging around. Great new arrivals. Hope you enjoy Wild Country. Have a great week!

  7. Anne - Books of My Heart

    Continue to take care of yourself! I think for me the short, dark days mean I am just tired. This past week was better sunny and warmer here which did help. I managed to write 3 of 5 reviews. Hopefully I can manage the rest tomorrow night.

    I also want to read Wild Country soon! I’ve been hanging on to it since December.! I’m sort of caught up finally. Have a great week!

    I am glad that you are feeling better. Let’s hope you continue to get plenty of rest.
    February is moving along well. I’ve been surprised how fast the days are lengthening for us. It is nice to not have to rush out of the office before 5pm when it was getting dark in December.
    I like the cover of The Affair of the Mysterious Letter.
    Happy Reading and Listening!

    I love that random! Glad you are finally better-knock wood. I’m behind on my blog visiting big time. I blame it on finding two more true crime channels to watch so I now I have four. I just tape and watch-constantly. I’m enjoying Wild Country, but thought it was slow going at first.

    I’m glad you’re starting to feel better! Being sick is rough. I haven’t felt that great the last few days, but it’s a bit on and off, so I don’t know what’s going on there.


  11. Lily

    I’m sorry to hear you have not been feeling good Kim. I am glad you are starting to feel better.. Hope you had a great weekend

  12. Mary Kirkland

    I’m glad to hear that you’re feeling better. I used to fall behind on reviews so I started writing them right after I read the book. You might be too busy to do that though.

    Glad you are feeling better. I have yet to read a Colleen Hoover book. I see her books around a lot, May have to give Verity a try.

  14. Sophia Rose

    We had a day in the 20s and I thought it was a heat wave. LOL
    Glad you are feeling more the thing and are getting your feet back under you with posts, visits, health, and probably everything else you had to drop to get your rest.

    I got Wild Country, too, but I’ve got a few others that I have to finish up before that treat.
    Enjoy your week, Kimberly!

  15. Melissa (My words and pages)

    Sometimes things get left in draft when you are sick. It’s okay. At least you have the drafts to touch up. Glad you are feeling better! Take care.

  16. tonyalee

    Bummer you still aren’t feeling like yourself! I hope you continue on the round to recovery.

    I saw the Anne Bishop book was available for review and was debating on getting it. 🙂

  17. Rita @ View From the Books

    G;ad you’re feeling a bit this week– what a winter you’ve had! I’m very excited to read Wild Country and Watcher in the Woods, 2 of my fave series in that genre type. Give the Royals a hug from us!

  18. A Voracious Reader

    I’m so glad to hear you’re feeling better. Yay! So many people underestimate how much resting helps to get better. Not saying you do, just in general. It really does work miracles. Well, along with meds and shit like that, but you know, rest is important, too. lol

  19. Lola

    Good you spotted it in time that those posts were still in draft and you could still finish them in time. Glad to hear you’re finally feeling better. I hope it stays that way. Have a great week!

  20. Melanie Simmons

    I’m listening to Wild Country now. I’m about half way through and loving it (as if you’re surprised). Our temps have been a bit warmer, but we’re getting a ton of rain. We are already in the top 10 wettest Feb on record and I heard that on the 8th. **sigh** I’m going to build an arc now for me, my dogs and horses.

    I’m so glad that you are finally feeling better! The trick will be to pace yourself until your battered immune system is fully restored:)). I hope you continue to enjoy all those audio books you’ve been tucking into and have a really enjoyable week, Kimberly – you’re owned one!

  22. Sophie

    I am happy to hear that you are finally feeling better Kimberly! And I was rushing like mad to fine tune draft reviews too! Happy Sunday 😉

  23. Ruby @ Ruby's Books

    I’m so glad you’re feeling better, Kimberly! Hopefully you’ll feel more like yourself in the next few days and the weather will get warmer! Have a great week and happy reading!

    I’m so happy you’re finally feeling better, Kim! Here’s to that continuing, and you being back to 100% as soon as possible!
    I have so many posts in draft mode too, these days. I also don’t always feel like reviewing everything anymore. I just want to pick up the next good book 😉
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading and listening!

  25. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    I’m glad you’re feeling better. Please take it easy and give yourself time to recovery fully. We all want to see you healthy and happy again!

    I’m usually pretty patient with winter, but I admit I am starting to long for spring’s warmer temperatures and colorful flowers. My daffodils (or possibly narcissus) are poking their leaves up already, but only a few inches. I don’t think winter’s done with us yet, even here in Virginia. Stay warm, and snuggle into a good book!

    Glad to hear you’re feeling a little better! Naps sound good, so does listening to Wild Country! I have a copy but not the audio. I’ll probably add it later on when it releases because I love the audio of The Others. 🙂

  27. Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

    I am glad to hear you are feeling better! That’s great news. Hopefully, you will be more energized this week coming. I am super busy and trying to make some visits today myself. Have a wonderful week Kim!


  28. Laura Thomas

    It’s so good to hear you’re finally feeling better, Kimberly! I was looking at my draft posts and have seven that still need reviews written. I need to get back to blogging ahead. LOL Have a lovely Sunday and enjoy Wild Country.

    Spring can’t come too soon! Glad you’re feeling better though Kimba. Hope your weekend is nice and relaxing. 🙂
