Sunday Update – May 22, 2016

Between the full moon and planets in retrograde, I'm not surprised I stubbed my toe and bled all over the bedroom and bathroom this morning. That's just what I expect from this time! Lol. But the good news is that the full moon is waning now and Mercury Retrograde ends tomorrow. We should be right back on track this coming week.

Lots of things happened this week. I had a regular, routine doctor checkup on Monday, hit the gym on Tuesday, and then the rest of the week was swallowed up by the end of the kitchen renovation. On Thursday, my temporary kitchen was taken down and I was without a stove and sink. So I had a salad for lunch and a bagel with peanut butter for dinner. Lol. It was a very “healthy” day. I took the kids to their annual school carnival where they ate pizza and cotton candy for dinner. I became “the best mommy on the planet” for a few hours. ;)

On Friday, a cleaning crew came, and even though there are a few more things to be done in the kitchen, WE COULD MOVE BACK IN! All afternoon, I moved food back into the kitchen refrigerator and whatever else I could carry back up the stairs. Then I took the kids to a rock climbing birthday party. We returned home to my husband and some fantastic job news for him! Can't say what it is except to say that it's AWESOME. :)

So it was quite a fun and busy week! The weather was pretty good. I got to walk outside twice and I saw goslings in the park. I didn't do any writing BUT I did finish up edits on THE DAYDREAMER DETECTIVE BRAVES THE WINTER! I plan to get out ARCs this coming week. Now I have a few new projects I need to work on and I plan to get started on those this week along with planning out my teasers for THE DAYDREAMER DETECTIVE BRAVES THE WINTER.

What else happened this week?

Hopefully this is the last week of me doing dishes by hand. I miss my dishwasher. #kitchenremodel

My days of doing all the dishes by hand are over!

There was a scary moment today when my MacBook did not want to boot up. No clue why. I nearly had a heart attack and had Apple on the phone when it finally came back. So glad for my Time Capsule! #ig2016 #365days #dailyphoto

I had a scary moment this past week when my computer did not want to boot up. I was sweating and worried but it finally came around. I hope that never happens again.

Guys! Spring is officially here!!! #ig2016 #365days #dailyphoto #goslings

The goslings are back in the park! This is the first batch of them I've seen this year, and compared to last year, these are small. I think they all hatched later this year. Probably has to do with our colder spring.

Guess what I'm doing? Moving back into the kitchen!!! #dailyphoto #365days #ig2016 #kitchenremodel

Here I am moving into the kitchen! WOOOOOOO!!

Bad news, friends. Remember that I'm allergic to avocado and cantaloupe? Watermelon was in the same allergen family and I thought I was fine with it. But no. I am not. I am IN PAIN. WATERMELON, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME? #dailyphoto #365days #ig2016

And I found out yesterday that I'm allergic to watermelon, like I'm allergic to other melons and avocado. It was a painful afternoon and I'm really sad about this development. I love watermelon! :( :(

Coming up this week on the blog: My Love/Hate Relationship With New York City and My Top 10 Yoga Poses. Possibly something else too, we'll see!
