Weekly Wrap-Up is a post I share with you guys every Friday, in which I highlight all things bookish that I did in the past week — the books I read, the books I bought, books that I got from the library, and great posts that I found on other people’s blogs.
What’s Happening With Me:
*sigh* I’m not doing that great, guys I’m trying to be okay, but some super serious family and personal stuff is going on and I’ve been feeling really depressed and stressed out lately. Usually reading is a haven that I turn to when I’m not feeling well, but I’ve been feeling so awful that I can barely even bring myself to read at all, which makes me even more sad. I’m hopeful that maybe some switching around with my medications will help stuff out, though, and maybe I’ll be a little better soon.
But, if you’ve been wondering, that’s why I’ve been kind of lackluster around the blogging community in regards to frequency of commenting and reading other people’s posts. I hope you understand 🙂
On a positive note, I am doing really well with my weight loss! The diet I’m on is awesome and I’m so close to having lost a total of 10 pounds so far!
And, on another positive/kind of negative note…the kitten we were supposed to get fell through. We’ve been on the “list” to get a kitten from Brent’s coworker’s pregnant cat for weeks, but apparently there was a big thing and somebody STOLE the pregnant cat and sold the babies (probably for drug money or something?), and now the used-to-be pregnant cat is really sick and stuff. I’m horrified that this happened (but, like, of course this happened this week, on top of everything else !! 😛 ) and so sad that we don’t get our adorable kitten…but we might be able to get a new, different kitten next week! The same animal shelter where we got Ivan (yeah, I know, because that one worked out so well….) has three kittens up for adoption right now, so we’re going on Sunday to visit them and will hopefully be approved for adoption. I know it’s probably wrong to think this, but I’m actually really really excited to get a kitten. I’ve been so down lately that I can’t help but think that something cuddly and fluffy could help me feel better.
So…do you guys want to help pick out the name??
Brent and I thought it might be cute to name the cat after a character from one of our favorite shows (Peggy is from Mad Men and Asha is from Game of Thrones — well, she’s actually called “Osha” in the show, but her real name in the books is “Asha” and Osha is a stupid name either way). The other two names are just ones that we thought were cute and both agreed on.
Here’s a picture of the three kittens up for adoption this weekend (the one all the way on the left is SO CUTE!):
Books That I Finished This Week:
- Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
- The Captain and the Prince (Throne of Glass #0.6) by Sarah J. Maas
Sorry…no weekly links this week. I’m just not up to it But I hope to be back with a better weekly wrap-up next week. At least you got a picture of kittens!
