Here’s all the stuff that we posted this week.

Our Lives This Week

In Asti’s Life…

Wait, it’s been a week already since our last recap? Where has time gone?!

I honestly don’t have much to say this week. I am out of the house from 8am until 7pm, traveling to and from work (and working). The few hours around that that I’m awake is spent prepping tweets for Sci-Fi November and updating the Master Schedule. Literally, that’s all I’ve done this past week. I’m exhausted.

Here’s some book pics to make my week look slightly more interesting.

Add in the fact that I’ve been struggling with massive back pain lately, and woke up Saturday to some sniffles and sickness. Well, I’m a bit of a mess. But hey, at least everyone liked my Sci-Fi YA Periodic Table! So nice to see the work you put into something pay off. Thanks everyone! <3

Hopefully next week will be a better (and more exciting) week…

In Kelley’s Life…

Here’s some bullet points about my week:

  • Text conversations with my brother about weird and ridiculous things.
  • The latest South Park episode about Magic: the Gathering.
  • My new med combination is making me feel weird and also strange.
  • Lots of unknowns with my husband’s work opportunities.
  • I got ALL my holiday shopping done, which feels awesome.
  • I got, like, 50 pages of reading in, which feels un-awesome.

BUT, I am off work all next week, so hopefully I will have plenty of relaxing and recuperating and reading and enjoying myself!

  1. I rarely (never?) comment on these posts but I always read + love them! I always find so many blog posts I would have missed otherwise, so thanks!

    And it always makes me happy seeing one of my posts linked here! THANK YOU!!!

  2. Holy, you’ve had quite the packed week. The back pain sounds absolutely horrendous and sniffles? I wish you all the best. Drink heaps of water, get sleep in between work. Put you first! You’re a superstar with all the amazing posts and the scheduling. I should take a leaf out of your book. I’ve got stuff scheduled to do but now its time to actually implement it. Hopefully I get back on track.

    I hope the med situation works out for the better, Kelley. Feeling weird is not the best but hopefully it’s a sign of success?? AND YOU FINISHED CHRISTMAS SHOPPING? YOU’RE AMAZING OK. I thought I was nearly done and was quite pleased but you’ve put me to shame ;)

    Have a good week you two. I know it’s leading into winter where you are so keep healthy and warm! x

  3. Wow sounds like you had a busy week Asti with all that work and managing the sci-fi month twiter account. I do think you did a great job managing the twitter account and it’s fun to see tweets about everyone’s posts!

    @Kelley, I hope you meds get worked out soon, feeling weird and strange doesn’t sound good. Yay for being done with christmas shopping! I am almost done with christmas as well, only need to buy a christmas present for my mom and her husband.

    Thanks for sharing a link to my post!

  4. Oh, I wish I had all my holiday shopping done. We’ve bought a total of one present so far. I was wanting to get it all done early because the week after Thanksgiving we’re going on vacation, and by the time we get back we’ll pretty much have two weeks to get ready for Christmas… but of course it never happened.

    Also, I really hate gift giving. Which makes me sound like a Scrooge, I know. I’m just so bad at it. I do love when I have that perfect gift I know someone will love and am super excited to give it to them… but that happens so infrequently that the awkwardness way outweighs the excitement.

    As always, thanks for linking to me.
