week in review: all work, no play

But seriously, I worked six days last week. Baby Brother says it doesn’t really count, since I only worked 40 hours, but I say it totally counts. I had the exhaustion to prove it. Thank goodness it was fall break for school, or I’d have been a goner.

I don’t have any awesome pictures (or any pictures at all). I’ll work on that. Promise.


  1. I worked 6 days at the new job.
  2. Got in a couple of good writing sessions.
  3. Wrote 7 blog posts, including 2 book reviews (3 posts here, 4 on my writing blog).
  4. Bought almost-last-minute tickets to see the Newsboys and IMAX 3D tickets for Star Wars opening weekend (how sad is it that someone had to remind me to do this because I totally forgot?)
  5. Introduced my new boss to the joy that is local eatery Hutch’s Pie shop.
  6. Got in a couple of workouts.
  7. Also got in a few satisfying naps.  I should probably do more of #6 and less of #7, sigh…
  8. Enjoyed the somewhat torrential rains that pounded North Central Texas because cooler weather y’all.
  9. Ate whatever randomness came my way. Double sigh…
  10. Started this week with a much better eating plan (just having one makes it “much better”). Also currently cooking Southern-style baby lima beans and baked pork chops.  Because I didn’t feel like going to the store, so I foraged in the freezer.  Also perhaps a chocolate fried pie remains for desert. Eating plan? What eating plan?

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets just for fun.

  1. Dude! You wrote seven blog posts on top of working forty hours. I am super impressed. I bow before you.

    Sometimes I totally pick naps over work outs too (cough, this afternoon, cough).

    Happy Monday and thanks for linking up.
