Sunday Post #82 (6/8/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It’s official, school is out and now my son is a senior. This makes me incredibly sad. I want this year to eitherΒ  go by super slow or just stop all together.

Apparently I’ve been drinking too many sodas, which for me is more than one a week. Now my kidney (singular) is paying for it. I seriously hate feeling sick when it’s 100+ degrees outside. I love being outside all day in the heat, but when I feel like this, I try to stay inside where it’s cool. Sucks.

While my son will be at a Zombie Mud Run (#Jealous), I will stay home and rest while watching the X Games and the Belmont Stakes!
1. I want Ken Block to win the rally car races.
2. I want California Chrome to win so bad, but I know the odds are against him in this race.

What I’m Listening To

Have you watched this? I’ve watched Peter’s Epic Rap Battles since the beginning, but some are definitely better than others. This Stephen King vs. Edgar Allan Poe battle is pretty funny. πŸ™‚


Have a great week!

      Yay, lots of us are turning 3. I keep hearing about The Killing Woods, so I think I’ll pick it up soon.

  1. I totally know how it feels to be sick when it’s so hot outside. I feel like I’m in a microwave. Congrats on your 3rd blog birthday! πŸ™‚ I wish you many more. You’ve got some amazing books and I really hope you’ll enjoy The Killing Woods! Great post πŸ™‚

      lol – I don’t mind not drink sodas or drinking them sparingly, it’s just that the Cherry Cokes my brother brought over were so damn good. πŸ˜€

  2. I’m still in the library queue for Sixth Grave. Gah! Excellent book haul! My daughter has one week of school left, but I have no doubts she will be a Senior next year. I will also have a Sophomore and my youngest is leaving Middle School and will be a Freshman. Wah! Of course, my oldest is nearly 29 now, but it’s been awhile since we had a graduate in the house. Time flies and it’s not fair! Have a wonderful week!

      Dang library, they need to get more copies! -sigh- I know, time needs to slow down. I only have one child, so I’m trying to get use to it and absorb it now so it won’t be so shocking next year. πŸ™

  3. Sorry you aren’t feeling well. Take care of yourself!! I know what you mean about your son getting older, I feel the same way about my girls, they are getting way too big way too fast. πŸ™

    Okay, seriously love that rap! How have I missed seeing these before? Now I need to google them all!

      Same here, I haven’t read anything by her yet, so hopefully this is good. And thanks πŸ™‚

    Oh, you got Better Homes and Hauntings! I’m not jealous, nope, not one bit. Okay, that’s a lie. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait for your review.

    You must have been disappointed in the outcome of the Belmont; I was. πŸ™ I hope the weather cools off for you and congrats to your son on being a senior!

      lol – It’s be my first book by Harper, so it better be damn good. πŸ˜€

      Yeah, it was disappointing, everyone around here was hoping the local boy would win the Triple Crown. But I knew he probably wouldn’t.

    • Christy

      Thanks, Anna. I hate feeling like crap, period. As if anyone enjoys it. lol

      I hoe it’s good since it the first book by her I’ll read.

  5. I hope you get to feeling better soon. I don’t really like sodas, and they make my kidneys hurt, but I can’t imagine how you must feel.
    I’m really excited to start How to Handle a Heartbreaker. I’m thinking Flynn and Abbi’s story will be so good.
    I hope you enjoy your books, Christi!

      Thanks, Andrea. Yeah, you’d think I’d stay away from them permanently since they’re pretty much the cause of death for my left kidney.

  6. The rap battle is hilarious! I’ve never seen it before. My daughter’s a senior now to so I completely understand. I’m staying focused on how I’m going to redecorate her room once she finishes college and has her own place. I’ve decided to turn it into a reading room and thinking about that cheers me up considerably! Better Homes and Hauntings looks fun and I look forward to your review. Hope you’re feeling better and have a great week!

    I wanna do a zombie mud run, too! I’m actually doing “normal” mud run soon, but things with zombies are always way more fun!
    I’m glad you ended up liking The Troublemaker Next Door despite some issues, I’m such a sucker for neigbour romances haha. Hope you have an awesome week!
