week in review: getting by


Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review.

It’s been a week. On one hand, that says it all. Just a really long week. Like, I’m just tired. There’s been a lot going on.

But, I:

-worked around 45 hours at the day job, in 3.5 days.

-escaped the threatened bad weather when the temps dropped to…about 4 actual degrees on Monday/Tuesday. Side note: that is extremely cold for here. We’re just wusses when it comes to cold weather, ice, and/or snow. Texas, y’all.

-cooked some things:

-survived on minimal carbs and no sugar all week (trying to eliminate unhealthy carbs, so minimal = veggies instead of simple carbs).

-got the plethora of reading done for my first week of classes, and all the homework (minor miracle). After looking at the reading for weeks 2 & 3, have decided to read selectively so I don’t have a nervous breakdown.

-did the filming for my first broadcast assignment. Worth noting: the assignment was to film video for a local piece, then I have to write a 30-second script to go with it. So I shot the beginning and end of a kids’ 1k race at a local health fair. I had extremely limited time to find a local event. I live in a small town. My options were limited.

-de-cluttered my “dining” area/workout area.


It probably still looks a bit cluttered, but all of the stuff on the top shelf is stuff that is not taking up real estate in my tiny kitchen…whose cabinet-tops are basically bare. And that makes me happy.

-got in two workouts this week, and am considering a 25k ultra in April. Considering. As Grand Canyon training. It involves camping, and I am NOT a camper. Glamping, maybe. But not camping.

-Reviewed Anatomy of a Scandal, Intraterrestrial, and This is Not a Love Letter.

-Finished reading O Pioneers!, Intraterrestrial, and White Chrysanthemums (Very powerful, heart-wrenching, sad book, about Korean women forced to be military sex slaves during the Korea/Japan conflict.)

-got some expected yet upsetting news yesterday that knocked me for a loop, so I’m taking the rest of the day and hanging out with the Saint, who’s always there for me, even when she’s feeling sick. Thank you, friend.

  1. I hope everything is OK. Sending happy and hopeful vibes.

    I had a week too last week. I just want to take a long nap for like three days. Maybe I can turn myself into Rip Van Winkle.

    I don’t know how you feel about fantasy books, but I am loving The Assasin’s Apprentice right now.
