The Sunday Post #67: Sleep Isn't Overrated



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its a chance to share news ~ A Post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Life:

Another week has flown by and I’ve been really tired. I worked a lot and haven’t been able to sleep as much as a human being probably should. LOL!! But I have a long weekend off from work to fix that. 

Other than work there hasn’t been a lot going on. It’s definitely one of those weeks where I wish I could work less and have more of life. But hopefully thinks will slow down a little. 

Books & Blogging:

Blogging wise I’ve been trying to make some posts for November for the Blog Ahead Challenge. It’s been going pretty good, not that I’ve got a lot of posts finished yet. But I have the outlines for several posts ready and I feel pretty good about that.

My Maureen's Books Promotions Celebration Party Giveaway ended this week. The winners has been notified. Thanks to everyone who joined me in the celebrations. I'm super excited about this new step in my blogger career.

I also joined the #HoHoHo Read-A-Thon in November as a host, which is really exciting and I can’t wait for it to be November! 

Reading wise I’ve been having some troubles. I can’t seem to concentrate on my reading as much lately. Not for any particular reason. At least not a reason I’m aware off. But I hope to catch some reading hours this Sunday.

  1. Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend! The HoHoHo readathon is always fun- I'm looking forward to that one as well.

    Breath of Fire looks like a lot of fun too.

  3. I have been there with lack of sleep. They say that you can't really ever catch up on what you've lost but as a woman who has slept long and late the last few weeks and now feels pretty good I would definitely disagree. Hope you get some shut eye soon.

  4. Oh yes, sleep is definitely very important. I hope you get more sleep next week? I've been having trouble falling asleep lately, not because of time, but just insomnia, I guess.

    1. Thanks Evelina. So far I've been able to sleep a little more this weekend. I hope next week will be a little better too. Sorry to hear about your insomnia. That sounds hard!

  5. I hate not getting enough sleep. If I can't get around 7 hours I'm a grump. And I wish constantly that I could slow down with work - but I need the money too, so it's a circle I just can't break.:D

    Amanda Bouchet is one of my favorite authors and Breath of Heart was ONE epic ending of an amazing series!!!

  8. This is how I've been feeling ever since mid-September. I think my Plexus masks the tired. I literally sleep most of the weekend away. I hope you're able to catch up and recharge.

    1. Blegh.. I don't know how you deal with that. I hate feeling so tired, and I just can't sleep that long anymore. I wake up early, and just can't get back to sleep. But I did manage to catch a little more sleep this weekend. So I'm feeling much better!
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  9. I've heard good things about Hailey Edwards and Amanda Bouchet. I hope you enjoy your new books!
    I'm not getting much sleep lately either, but I'm no more tired than usual. I guess I've just adapted to it because I've been doing it for so long, and I'm used to restless sleep when I do get it because I have sleep apnea. Anyway, I hope you feel better soon.

  11. On the off chance that this is the manner by which sleep apnea impacts your health, you should search for treatment immediately.try soclean CPAP
