Sunday Update – May 22, 2022

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.

Hmmm, I don't have a lot to say about this week. It was pretty regular and routine in regards to all family stuff. My husband went into the city twice for work and the cleaning ladies came. I took my oldest daughter to get her second ear piercing. My youngest daughter went back to school after staying home the previous week with covid. She tested negative last Sunday. All in all, covid was just a cold for her, so I'm grateful she wasn't too sick. She was mainly bored, just like I was when I got it.

I have been feeling blue and foggy since getting covid, though, and I wonder if this is the “brain fog” that people talk about. Being creative is a real struggle. I'm barely writing. I'm worried I won't be able to write this book, but I'm going to give it time and hope that with the nicer weather coming, I'll snap back. We have Memorial Day weekend coming up and we're planning a trip to the beach house. I'm sure that will make me feel a lot better. I'm also spending less and less time on social media, and believe it or not, I think a lot of my blues are from that. We all know that social media is addictive and gives us heightened oxytocin and serotonin levels. So I think that has a lot to do with it as well.

In other news, I published An Unforgiving Desert and made that free. If you've read it, PLEASE PLEASE leave a review. I can't buy ads for it until it's gotten some review love.

Since I haven't felt creative, I've been doing a lot of knitting and watching TV, especially instead of being on social media.

Been spending some time outside with Lulu (as allergies permit) looking at the lovely flowers and going for walks.

I've also been wearing all my geeky t-shirts and I've purchased more of them for myself. I think it's time for me to embrace my geek (and comfort) side.

And that's about it for this week! Stay safe and healthy everyone!
