Weekly Writing & Reading Recap: April 10 - April 16

by - 8:00 PM

It took a little while to get back on track, but I'm excited to announce that the Weekly Writing & Reading Recaps are back on!

Well guys, it looks like my inspiration streak has come to a halt. I've been feeling a little off lately and I'm not sure if I'm getting sick or if it's something else. Either way though, I will be seeing the chiropractor and the lab for blood work tomorrow! Hopefully nothing crazy is going on, fingers crossed. Nevertheless, I'm still trying my best to be productive and luckily my nap earlier really helped. So I've been able to shoot off a few emails, finish a couple blog posts, and read some more of my new book :)

Today started off okay. I went to the chiropractor as usual and then made my way over to the Rheumatologist's office for some blood work. Unfortunately, the loss of blood plus the fasting quickly turned into a raging migraine. So while I really wanted to get some work done, all I could do was find a comfy spot in bed and read until my eyes couldn't take it anymore. Of course, I squeezed a couple episodes of Charmed in too, so I wasn't going to bed at 5pm like a weirdo :)

Guys, if I had to tell you how many phone calls I had to make today, you honestly wouldn't believe me. Luckily though, I got everything all sorted out and I'm incredibly excited for what's to come, both in my personal and professional life! And in regards to my writing, I have to admit that I'm pretty disappointed in myself. I know that I shouldn't feel guilty about not writing, since I'm pretty far ahead of schedule, but I still can't help it. I was making such amazing progress, so to see those repeating zeros is really taking a toll of me. Hopefully though, it will pass quickly and I'll be able to pick up right where I left off! Until then, I'm going to catch up on my reading!

Today was an absolute disaster and it was pretty obvious that God was testing me. I already knew that  the day would probably start off poorly since I had to see one of my specialists that normally has me waiting an hour and a half after my appointment time to be seen; but this appointment when far worse than expected. After that monstrosity, I then drove to 5 more doctors offices and the courthouse twice.  I ended up spending less than two hours at home between 8 am and 7 pm. Needless to say, I was exhausted, but I pushed through the pain and read until I fell asleep :)

Even though yesterday was rough, I was determined to start today off better than ever! So, I got up, went to Target, enjoyed some donuts, treated myself to Starbucks, and ended my trip at the bookstore! And after some thorough searching, I managed to pick up quite a few books on my TBR list. Once all that was done and over with, I proceeded to clear out all of my inboxes and respond to any of the left over inquires. Not only that, but I managed to format a couple of blog posts and get some reading time in too! To bad it doesn't count towards my usual page count though!

So, I don't know what's going on with me, but something is definitely up! I've had a lingering migraine for the last week and a half and I've just felt very weak in general. I've really been wanting to get ahead in my work, but it feels like I'm constantly falling behind. Nevertheless, I am trying to think positive! Maybe I just worked to hard recently and I need a good nights sleep. So, that's what I'm aiming for tonight!

Happy Easter! Gosh, today has been pretty amazing! I took the day off to relax and spend time with my husband and we even managed to have a fancy feast for two! We started the day off with cinnamon rolls and ended it with honey glazed ham, loaded mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and biscuits! And of course, we couldn't forget desert, so we had brownies and ice cream! Can you say yum? I think we need to do this once a month :)

Weekly Wrap-up 
Honestly, I'm pretty disappointed in myself this week. I was really hoping that I would feel better and I'd be able to get more work done, but I've seriously been struggling. I've been falling behind on my reading and my writing and I can't help but feel guilty about it. I've got my fingers crossed hoping next week is better, both for my health and for my work! But for now, I'm just going to pretend that I was giving myself an easy week to celebrate Easter :D
