Welcome to my weekly recap where I share what happened last week
While my daughter was at her ballet class, I escaped from my prison, ran to my favorite café [which doesn’t have internet connection DARN IT!!!] to write this post and tell you how much I missed you all and how much I missed blogging!!!
OMG the last two weeks have been SCARY!!!!
Real Life captured me and imprisoned me behind the veil in the Real World 🙁
I had a HUGE project due last week and on top of that I took YET ANOTHER job [that’s makes one full-time job and two part-time jobs!] and my kids had trainings, practices, games, tournaments, rehearsals… so there I was…
Trapped! Behind the Veil!
And all I could do was watch my kid blogger friends have fun at the kid blogger playground and sigh!
I was there, in Real Life, running [literally speeding and getting speed tickets!] like a headless chicken from one place to another. In between practices, and games, and work meetings, I would check my iPhone and read your awesome comments and posts wishing I had one minute to comment. Is ONE MINUTE too much to ask???? But as soon as I clicked in “reply” or “comment” I was already late for another “event” 🙁
There were two reviews on the blog these last two weeks JUST because I had scheduled them the first week of May as part of my blog ahead challenge (in which I miserably failed of course!). 🙁
But, though I have NO updates whatsoever, today I wanted to…
- Thank you all my wonderful kid blogger friends for visiting my blog even though I was MIA. You guys are fantastic!!! I’ll make sure to visit you and totally “spam” your blogs [as my dear friend Annika would say 🙂 ] as is proper! 🙂
- Tell you about all my good intentions for the next weeks! Because if there is something Daniela always has is PLENTY of good intentions. That’s how I never say no to anything and get completely overbooked 🙂 So here they are…
My kid writers friends… his Friday Jun 3rd don’t miss my interview with Thomas E. Sniegoski awesome best seller author of one of my favorite books EVER, The Fallen and The Demonists and other great urban fantasies
This week I’m also hoping to catch up with A Book Genesis. I’ll be redesigning the feature so it is more flexible and writers can choose whatever topic they want to post about.
What about you my writers friends? What did you write last week?
Of course I also fell behind with my favorite feature which is my Blogger Interviews! 🙁
Since now I get home around 9 pm and crash exhausted shortly after making dinner, doing laundry and checking homework, etc. I haven’t read one single page or written a single review! My GR “Currently Reading” report is exactly the same as it was two weeks ago 🙁
I still have pretty much the same ARCs to read I had two weeks ago, but at least I didn’t have the time or energy to request more ARCs 😉
I’m hoping to get some reading done today and tomorrow (which is a holiday here in the US) and maybe a little during the week but, unfortunately, my reading bookshelf will continue to be neglected for a few days because after all tournaments and recitals are over, then come my kids’ competitive tryouts and I have another big project due mid June! 🙁
So right after I finish that project I hope to get through as many as those pending ARCs as possible because…
IT’S COMING… I CAN FEEL IT…
Chilly, dreadful, seeping into my bones… another reading slump!!! Everything is a DNF now! My Goodreads “Abandoned ARCs” shelf is almost as big as the pending ARCs 🙁
BUT I HAVE A PLAN PEOPLE! I DO!
I have no idea if it’s going to work but… Remember is all about the good intentions! 🙂
First I created a “Want to Finish” Goodreads shelf because I KNOW there are good books that I haven’t finished just because I haven’t been “in the mood”, like these…
And second…I’m playing the helpless female card! Yes. I, the ultimate feminist… I’m declaring myself a damsel in distress!
I’M CALLING ALL THE HEROES!
You know.. the brave, the proud, the strong… The infamous SHIRTLESS guys!
The Alpha Males!
ALL OF THEM! The SEALs, The Shifters, The Vampires [the ones that don’t sparkle of course!]
Because when I’m done with my big project at work and summer starts…
I’M READING ROMANCE!
Yes I’m yelling! No more whispering! Screw the dark edgy reader reputation! 🙂
I AM looking forward to lazy summer days at the beach, reading tons of shameful, sinful books with “shirtless” guys on the covers! 😉
I CANNOT WAIT FOR SUMMER!!
What about you? How was your week? What are you reading now?
What ARCs do you have pending? What are you reviewing next?
Leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
