Sunday Update – May 23, 2021


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 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 was a long week of knitting and softball for me every night but Friday. We had two away games and two home games, and I handled all four of them. I also spent almost every day running errands or picking up kids and dropping them off places. It was busy and by the time Saturday rolled around, I felt like I had been run over by a truck. I got up early on Saturday too, to do my Peloton 60-min Power Zone ride for the challenge and then chaperone a window painting event for my youngest daughter. I came home from that, ate something much earlier than I usually do, and then passed out in bed with landscapers outside (that's how tired I was). I'm so glad I got to sleep in a little today.

I seem to be having a crisis of confidence this week brought on by making the audiobooks for the Flyght Series. You know, I really loved writing that series. The stakes were high and the world was unique and new. Vivian came to me out of nowhere and she was so much fun to write. All the men I chose for her network were interesting too, in their own ways. It's been amazing reading and listening to these books again, BUT it's making me wonder if I'll ever get that same magic again. I'm writing Skylar's series now, and I'm hoping I can make it work. The stakes are high for her too, but she's lived a different life than Vivian. I need to figure this out before I go any further. I'm feeling a little lost right now, honestly. Maybe it's the lack of writing time I've had and the busy home life? I don't know. All I know is that I'm worried and I need to figure out how to stop worrying and just write.

There were more of these photos this week, but you get the picture. Lots of knitting and softball.

It rained at the away game this past Monday but produced a double rainbow!

I hit 250 rides this week on Peloton! I had no idea I was that close to the milestone or I would have saved it for a class where I got some high-fives. Instead, I took it as a scenic ride. Oops.

All of my exercise clothes are big and baggy on me now, and I look pretty silly going out for walks with Lulu.

I turned the shelves next to me on the couch into a desk area where I can keep all my stuff.

Among all the things I did this week was get my oil changed and my car washed.

I worked outside quite a bit while the weather was nice.

I chaperoned a window painting outing on Saturday morning. The girls did a great job!

I ate dinner in my car quite a few times.

I had my first ever poké bowl from a local sushi place that just opened up. It was awesome!

I'm so beat. I really need a vacation. I hope the craziness in life lets up soon.

Have a great week everyone! Stay safe and healthy.
