I’m feeling excited and frustrated. The excitement comes from closing on our place and finding a place to move. The frustration comes from the buyers needing to change timelines at the last minute so we’re now not moving until next weekend. I’ll get over it, though, because it gives us more time to pack and prepare.
This week on the blog:
I finished reading both EVERY SUMMER AFTER by Carley Fortune and SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA by Becky Albertalli this week. I loved both of them so much. I’ll be posting reviews next week.
I also read THE MAGICIAN’S NEPHEW by CS Lewis and finished it last night. I have officially met my yearly goal upon finishing it! I can’t believe I’ve read so much already this year. I’ll start THE LAST BATTLE today and finish my reread of the Narniad in the next couple of days. It’s been a fun experience.
I’ll also pick WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING by Delia Owens back up. (I’d put it on the back burner so I could read the three books I finished this week.)
I’ve been listening to some 80s songs this week. I love the music from the 80s, but I don’t listen to it very much unless the songs are covered by a more recent band, like Weezer and their Teal Album.
One of my favorite 80s songs is “Take on Me” by A-Ha. Even though the music video seems a bit cheesy forty years later, I still think the concept is cool.
I also really love Weezer’s cover of “Take on Me.” If you haven’t heard it, I highly recommend listening to it. I included the MV in this post for your viewing pleasure.
I watched the season finale of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR and I’m really happy with the winner. I think the top three kids absolutely deserved to be in the positions they were in.
I also got caught up on the current season of MASTERCHEF. I think I want Fred to win. I loved him in his original season and I love him still. I also can’t believe Alejandro did what he did in this last episode.

We also started watching the new season of MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM. We really like this show. The story’s interesting and the characters are great. This season seems like it’s going to be awesome.
I love that I came off the medication that I did. The withdrawal symptoms have pretty much disappeared AND I’m so much more clear-headed than I used to be.
I want to move now. The buyers are being so annoying, even though we have a lease to stay in our property until next Saturday. They’ve been so hard to work with, changing dates and asking for extensions. And, now that we’ve closed, it’s like they don’t want to hold up their end of the bargain. Sorry. I’ll just be glad when this is all over.
I need to start packing the rest of our stuff. Because of the changing dates and extensions, Corey and I haven’t really been able to make plans. Because of that, we didn’t want to start packing since we need a lot of our stuff until we actually move. Now that everything’s settled, other than dealing with the buyers, we can actually make hard plans. Wish us luck.
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
