Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 1/31/16

January 31, 2016 Sunday Post 14

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):

Okay, my daughter’s big gymnastics meet is coming up next weekend, and the stress of getting everything done for hospitality, plus getting all of my papers graded for my homeschool co-op, plus working on editing projects is kind of drowning me at this moment. I hate that I get overwhelmed so easily and just start to shut down – I can feel it happening even as I’m typing this. Ugh! Plus, the cold weather has made my internet kind of wonky, which is so frustrating!

On a happier note, I didn’t fall TOO behind this week on the blog (though I still didn’t get that author event recap written – I’m just not even going to pretend I know when I’ll manage that – sigh.)

Here’s what you may have missed last week:

Next week on FYFA:

  • A blogoversary giveaway!!
  • January Wrap-Up
  • February Discussion Challenge Link-Up and Giveaway

    I am getting overwhelmed just reading some of the things you have to do, so I can only imagine how you must feel. And wonky Internet is the worst since 99% of the things you have to do involve the Internet! I just got the ARC for Into the Dim too. It looks really interesting!

    Happy blogversary!

    I love that you link to other interesting posts you found because now I have some more new blogs to check out. I’m so terrible about finding time to visit more blogs so this is an easy way for me to click on a few links and check them out 🙂

    Happy Blogoversary!!! yay! I’m sorry you are feeling overwhelmed. I’d offer to help somehow, but I’m not sure what I could do from over the internet, but hey, let me know if you think of something! 🙂 At least the hospitality will soon be over and you have some help with that, right? That’s a plus!

    I totally shut down when I have too much to do too! I have drag myself out of the pit and make lists of things to get done each and every day or I’m toast. I hope the gymnastics meet goes well, and with that being done, hopefully you’ll feel a huge weight’s been lifted off your shoulders! <3

    I go into fast forward mode when I get overwhelmed. It’s weird how we all work differently. I have been in this reading slump all month and now it is starting to show in my upcoming posts. I’ve got to get over it! I hope things start evening out for you this week.
