The Weekly Update: 6/11/17

I feel like my blog used to be a much more fun place, whereas now it seems like it's been all book reviews and unhappy weekly updates :-/ It's just that my tennis elbow has been really bad. Even reading hurts because I have to hold a book or kindle and flip the pages. I don't want to give up blogging because it makes me happy, but I may have to take a break for a while. Or only post once a...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/4/17

So I created a new Sims household recently full of supernaturals---I had never played with supernaturals in TS3---and man, I should've done this sooner because this game is turning out to be so much fun. Like, I didn't even have a plan when I created it. Didn't know what jobs they'd have, what I wanted them to accomplish, etc., I just threw 'em all in a house together and was gonna see what...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/21/17

I didn't do a Weekly Update last week, so I'm doubling up on this one so that none of the books I received or reviewed would get neglected. Unfortunately, *sigh* I've not had a great week. I feel like my body is falling apart. As if I didn't have enough health problems already, I think I may have nerve damage or something because the shin/ankle area in one leg has been numb-ish all week. I...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/14/17

I've been extra tired lately and feel like I haven't done anything productive all week because I haven't been able to concentrate, so this is just a post to let you all know that I won't be doing a weekly update or participating in the Sunday Post linkup or visiting many blogs today. Don't worry though, I'm fine! I just need a break today. I'll share all the books I've received and read this past...
 

The Weekly Update: 5/7/17

Why is it still sporadically reaching lows of 62 in May in a place where we don't even get winter? And who thought 9 in the morning on a Saturday was a good time to feed a whole tree through a wood chipper right outside my window? These are the burning questions I have this week. Other than that, I ain't got no real life news. Doing lots of different things for my tennis elbow and trying to...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/30/17

Blog/Bookish Updates: My Amazon wishlists, which is how I keep track of books I’m interested in, will no longer allow me to filter by price drop or sort by price. It’s also an infinite scroll now instead of pages. I’m not happy about either of these things. My wishlist has nearly 1000 books, so I...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/23/17

My tennis elbow is hurting too much to ignore and I've actually been trying to rest it the past couple days, so I don't know how much commenting I'll be able to do today. I might have to leave a quick, generic comment sometimes just to let you know I stopped by or only comment every other Sunday or something because Sundays are the hardest on my arm, but I don't want you all to think I don't care...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/16/17

Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating, and Happy Sunday to everyone who is not :-) I have no idea if other people will be around blogging today, but I'm here anyway! Oh, and of course the guys across the hall have an Easter door decoration lol. Also, remember I showed you all the picture of the cat that loves belly rubs? Well I was talking to the woman downstairs who takes care of most of...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/9/17

I only posted three posts this week and didn't do a ton of blog hopping because I've felt kinda meh and my tennis elbow has gotten bad again. I keep rubbing arnica cream onto it. I have no idea if it's helping. It's a lot easier than soaking in epsom salt though. Honestly I think they both do help some, it's just that I still keep using my arm and making it hurt more. In other random news, I...
 

The Weekly Update: 4/2/17

Good news! The headaches were in fact caused by the granola things I was eating! So I have had a blissfully headache-free week! Well, not entirely since I got a headache from fatigue one day, but that one went away after a night's rest, so close enough. Kristen's life tip of the week: If you start feeling dehydrated despite drinking lots of water and can't figure out why, make sure you're not...
