Life Update

Friday, February 22, 2019

After spending the first week or so of January sick, I wanted to focus on getting completely better and preparing for my trip to India in February. Life had other plans because it was like the flip of a coin: I was sick one week and I was perfectly fine the next. Last week, however, things really took a turn when I got the flu. 

I had to go to the doctor, get diagnosed, and take medication which was great because I felt like I'd been hit by a truck the first two days. Every year for as long as I can remember I've gotten the flu shot and the first year I didn't get the shot, I got the flu. Over the years I developed a cough and congestion but it was normal for the seasons changing. 

Next week I'll be heading back to the motherland after nine years. I won't have as much access to the internet there as I do here so there won't be any posts going up. I had every intention of scheduling several posts per week during the time I was gone but life had other things in store for me. I will do the best I can before I leave to write up a few I had plans but if there aren't a lot of posts going up, that's why.

On My Screen Lately (1)

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

I love watching shows. Like, I *really* enjoy watching shows. I keep up with the newest shows that are premiering either on television or a streaming service and usually give them a chance or two. There's something about telling stories on the small screen that just appeals to me. But I'm also an avid re-watcher which is both good and bad. It's good because it allows me to delve into a world I love and really enjoy myself if nothing new catches my eye. It's bad because I will spend far too much time re-watching shows instead of finding new ones. So here are a few of the shows I've been watching lately, new and old.

Review Round Up (2): The Hathaways Have Arrived

Monday, February 4, 2019

I have been a big fan of Lisa Kleypas for years. Her Wallflowers series is one of my all time favorites and I re-read the books often. While I've read several of the books that mention the Hathaways, my library just got all five of the books so I knew it was time to dive in. Little did I know that I would fall endlessly in love with the Hathaway siblings and their love stories. I read all five books in about forty-eight hours. If there was one thing that shines through all of these books it is the family dynamics of the Hathaways. I would recommend these books for the Hathaway family alone but their love stories are just as great!
