About last week...

Since the flu hit our family hard last week, we spent most of our time doing nothing but the absolute necessary.  We took medicine, drank lots of fluids, ate kådun månnok (Chamorro chicken soup), and shuffled around from couch to couch to bed bundled up in blankets.

Needless to say, I didn't do anything productive last week.  No crafting, no sewing, and obviously not much blogging either.  I even took an actual sick day, where I was actually sick.  I don't even remember the last time I had to call in because I was the one who was sick.  Usually, no matter how I'm feeling I still manage to haul my ass to work.

To make it seem like the week wasn't a total waste, here's a list of what I did do:

1. Binge watch Fuller House.  Didn't think I'd love it as much as I did and now I can't wait for the next season.  I got my sister hooked on it too.

2.  Cross off another three books on my ABC Reads list.  I finished The Guardians of History, Fangirl, and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry.  I just downloaded the next few books in the lineup and I can't wait to get home and do nothing but read.

3.  Plan the hell out of March.  It's always a busy month for us and this year it's extremely so.  I haven't had the time to sit down and take photos of my full updated planner spread yet, but I'll try to do that this weekend.

4.  Spend wayyyy too much money shopping.  Like, really.  I don't even want to talk about it.

5.  Waste time playing with my phone.  I finally upgraded my iPhone 5c (which was broken thanks to Joey and Trace) to an iPhone 6s so I've been downloading apps and trying out all the new features that my old phone didn't have.

This week hasn't been very productive so far either, but with Chloe's birthday right around the corner, you can be sure that this weekend will be pure party planning madness.

What have you been up to?


  1. So sorry your family was sick. Gosh I'm impressed with your planner.

  2. Oh man... the flu. I keep hearing that its really spreading right now - which is crazy - I thought it was more of a 'winter' thing & with Spring virtually here, I'm amazed that its big news. Hopefully everyone is on the upswing.

    I was the same way about Fuller House - thought I'd check it out but LOVED it!

  3. blech the flu. kayla is going through it right now although i think she's starting to feel better.

    i haven't been able to plan as much either with work and kayla being sick. here's to next week being better for both of us!

  4. A lot people here have the flu too!
    I've catched a cold :(

  5. Sorry about the family flu. I know that I'm always unproductive during sickness and then a few weeks afterward too. Glad you got to watch Fuller House. Everyone keeps talking about it so I should watch an episode. Feel better this weekend!

  6. The Flu is the worst!!! Hope you guys are all better! I loved Fuller House!!! What did you think of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry? It was on my top 10 list from last year, I just adored it!

  7. Do you have any idea how pretty that picture is?! God, my planner obsession is out of control. I watched 2 episodes of Fuller House and hated both of them. That show just isn't for me.
