Sunday News #12

Sunday Post and Sunday Salon are blog news memes hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer and Reader Buzz, respectively. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and other things.

I’m feeling really good about most things right now. My health continues to improve. My procedures on Monday went well. I’m just waiting for the results from the biopsies. I did find out that I have inflammation in my stomach lining and that’s what caused me to vomit blood. It’s not an ulcer yet. My doctors have increased the dosage of my heartburn/acid reflux medication to help calm the irritation down.

I also got caught up in my math class this week. I was behind because of being so sick. I’m working on getting caught up in my Japanese class. Hopefully, I’ll be caught up by the end of this coming week.


This week on the blog:


I barely finished THE SILVER CHAIR by CS Lewis on March 31 so I could count it as a March read. I’m finally going to start reading my February Book of the Month pick today–A RIVER ENCHANTED by Rebecca Ross. I’m excited to read it!


In honor of Corey and I finishing binge-watching How I Met Your Mother, I thought I’d share “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by the Proclaimers even though everyone knows this song. If you’ve ever seen HIMYM, then you know why. If you don’t like this song, just keep on listening. It’ll come around.


As I said above, Corey and I finished binge-watching How I Met Your Mother this week. It was LEGEN-wait-for-it-DARY! Now, we’re going to watch the first season of How I Met Your Father and see if we like it at all.

I also found another cooking competition on Netflix that’s really fun. It’s called Baking Impossible. It teams up a pastry chef with an engineer and they have to bake/build these really awesome feats. They’ve had to build a sailboat, robot, chain reaction machine, costume, mini golf course, skyscraper, vehicle, and bridge. All of them edible and all of them have to pass stress tests. For example, the sailboat had to sail across a small waterway within 45 seconds to not fail. I only have one episode left and it’s been really fun.


I love how the bookmark I made for my IRL book club turned out. I unveiled it this week and I was so excited to share it in my Upcoming Book Club Picks post (link above).


I want the 19th to get here quickly because it’s my birthday and I love celebrating my birthday, lol.


I need the weather to quit being bipolar and pick spring instead of winter. It’s time for the sun and warmer weather all the time or most of the time!

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

    We finally got around to watching How I Met Your Mother long after it had gone off the air. It’s one of the best series I ever watched. Let us know what you think about the sequel series.

    I finished The Silver Chair but I haven’t started the April book for Narniathon yet.

    I am so sorry to hear that your stomach has been causing you problems but glad it isn’t an ulcer. Take care of yourself. I’ve been plagued by a cold which seems o get worse every day. Sigh.

    I am glad to hear things are going well for you! I hope the test results come back in your favor. The wait can be nerve wracking sometimes. I have only seen a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother, but I’ve enjoyed what I saw. Someday perhaps I will watch the entire series. I am a fan of Neil Patrick Harris. My daughter has really gotten into Baking Impossible. She loves those cooking shows. She’s watching Nailed It for the umpteenth time now. I hope you have a happy birthday!

      Thank you! I did find out the biopsies are negative so that’s good news. 🙂 If you’re a fan of NPH, then I think you’d like HIMYM. He’s so awesome in his role as Barney Stinson. That’s cool about your daughter. She and I are kindred spirits. Although, I haven’t watched Nailed It yet. Maybe I should.
