Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore 2/1/15

February 1, 2015 Sunday Post 18

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

This week was crazy, as predicted (in last week’s Sunday Post). I ran hospitality for my daughter’s home gymnastics meet, feeding probably 200 people over the weekend. Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I am not an organized person. How I ever let myself get roped into this job, I will never know (I actually did it last year too, but I co-chaired with someone who was very organized and did half the work – this year, I ended up doing about 90% of the work because my co-chair just wasn’t available to do much). Oh, and the drama! There were so many people who just wanted to complain about things. (Oh, they just have fried chicken? Why is there so much pasta? There are so many cakes. There’s no more cream cheese for the bagels? Why don’t they have someone monitoring the volunteer room at all times?) I honestly wanted to pull my hair out by the end and yell, “Anyone who wants this job can totally have it! Feel free to jump right in!!” Ugh! The judges and coaches were all very wonderful and gracious, though (it was a bunch of the other volunteers who just wanted to complain). And since I’m a total people pleaser (as you just found out from my post on Thursday), this made the whole experience stressful and miserable. Anyway, I needed somewhere to vent, so you guys get to read about my personal drama this week.  I’m sure you’re thrilled!

Here on the blog, I didn’t get quite as many posts up, but I’m sure you can figure out why from my little rant up there. Things should be getting back to normal soon, though! I didn’t get to my month end round-up or my review of Red Queen. Those should be coming next week!

Here’s what you may have missed this past week:

Next week on FYFA:

      Unfortunately, we’re hosting another big meet at the end of March that I know they’re going to try to rope me into. My mom and husband keep reminding me I have to learn to say NO! 🙂

      I actually kind of liked my job in customer service. I can deal with aggravation from strangers more easily than from people I “know.”

      I cheated and peeked at Goodreads. We were opposite – which seems to be holding true for this book. People either love it or hate it! It’s kind of fun to read everyone’s reasons why, though!
