Weekly Round Up [33]

That's a Wrap Weekly

Happy Sunday! Welcome to my Weekly Round Up. Don’t forget, you’ll find this mashup of Stacking the Shelves and Sunday Post each week right here. 🙂

Not a whole lot of new things to report from last week. It was a short week, work-wise, because of my long weekend in Pennsylvania. Of course, I had an unexpected work from home day on Wednesday when the Metro system in DC shut down and, in an effort to make things easier for staff, my office opted to close. It was wonderful and much appreciated, even though I don’t use Metro to get to work. Those 700,000+ people who use the system daily would’ve been clogging the roads and it would’ve been a mess. I’m glad I didn’t have to worry about it. The commute to my couch was quite lovely. Plus I got to do laundry while I was at home. Adulting bonus!

I’m still trying to get my life – and more specifically, my apartment – back together after my trip last weekend. I’ve unpacked, so that’s something. I watched some basketball Thursday and Friday. Even though it’s not my favorite sport to watch, there’s something about March Madness that makes me want to pay attention. Of course, my Mountaineers choked in the first round AND Michigan State royally effed my brackets, but it was just for fun anyhow. I’ve read a bit this week and now I need to spend Sunday writing some reviews… hopefully! It’s going to be cold and rainy with a chance of snow, so it’s not like I’m going to be out running around.

My FitReaders Challenge is still going… between work chaos and fighting my allergies, I’ve not felt like doing a whole lot. I hope to do more this coming week. *fingers crossed*

Things of Interest

Just a few of the things I’ve found interesting from the blogosphere (and maybe even the internet in general) over the last few days.
  • I’ve got nothing this week. One thing I didn’t do was make time to visit other blogs. Womp womp.


let's chat

How was your week?
Any exciting new books?

  1. Being able to do chores at home WHILE working is certainly something I miss about working from home. Having said that I only work part-time so really can’t complain anyway…

    I hope you’ve been able to spend your Sunday catching up on your reviews….

      It’s such a nice feeling to be able to do stuff like that at home while working. I felt so productive! Our office doesn’t have an official work from home policy, but they’re working on it. We’re certainly set up to do it, technology-wise at least. And goodness knows I can do 3/4 of my job from my couch as easily as I can from the office. Hopefully we continue moving that direction. I mean, one day a week alone would be amazing…

      Have a great week!

      Oof. I’m glad you told me about that. I don’t mind an emotional read, but I don’t always enjoy being blindsided by it! Now I just need to catch up on the other books in the series before I read this one. Oops. 🙂

      I love the cover for The Natural History of Us! Rachel’s books are so “cute,” I just can’t wait to read this one.

      Aw, I’m bummed I won’t get to meet you, too! It’s sad not to go to BEA after two years of going, but it’s also probably a much-needed break. You’re going to have an AMAZING time!

  2. It’s nice that your office closed when the metro wasn’t working, Kim! I’m sure the roads were crazy. And you got to do some other things at home while still getting work done, double win!
    Your new books look great, I’m so curious about the ‘Pucked’ series, and The Natural History of Us looks really sweet.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.
