Sunday News #27

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

I’m feeling a little bit depressed right now. I almost didn’t write this post, and I decided to act opposite of my depression urge and still participate.


This week on the blog:


I haven’t read much this week. I’ve been recuperating from the move and unpacking a little here and there. I did start reading SEAN GRISWOLD’S HEAD by Lindsey Leavitt, but I haven’t made much progress. I’m hoping to read more this week.


I’ve been listening to my 80s playlist while I’m in the car. I’ve rediscovered some great songs, and I’ve also discovered some songs that I remember being awesome and aren’t. One of my favorite artists is Michael Jackson. I love his music and I love the way he could dance.


Corey and I finally saw THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER and it was amazing. Natalie Portman as Lady Thor was fantastic. Christian Bale was awesome too.

We also watched the last episode of MS. MARVEL. It was fantastic. That mid-credits scene!

We watched the season finale of STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS this week too. It was so good; I can’t wait for season 2.

We also started watching STRANGER THINGS. We had already seen season 1 and part of season 2. We haven’t watched it, though, since those seasons first came out. We’ve rewatched season 1 already and we’re halfway through season 2. It’s so crazy!


I love my new manicure. I love the shade of purple I chose and I love the flowers. I only did one nail with flowers on my left hand so they’re asymmetrical. I may do this color and design the next time I get a manicure too.


I want the 26th to come quickly because I’m getting LASIK on both my eyes. I’ve so excited!


I’m not sure what I need right now. It’s hard to know when I’m feeling depressed. Hopefully, the depression won’t last long.

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

      Thanks, Nicci! ๐Ÿ˜€ Ms. Marvel will be fun to binge watch. Corey and I thought about putting it off until we could binge it, but we decided to watch one episode at a time. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    I’m sorry you are feeling depressed. I hope posting has helped a bit. I haven’t seen the latest Ms. Marvel yet! One of my kids was off at camp so we’ve been waiting until we could watch with him. Yay for LASIK! That will be wonderful.

    Take care of yourself. I hope a little blogging and reading will lift your spirits a bit. We’ve rewatched Stranger Things from the beginning this summer, and we’re finally on the new season. I’m enjoying the new characters!

      Thanks, Diana! ๐Ÿ˜€ Blogging does definitely help me fight the depression I feel. I love interacting with my readers and other bloggers. How fun that you’re watching season 4 of Stranger Things. I’ve loved season 2 so far.

    MJ’s music is so catch and danceable–not that I can dance very well. That’s exciting about the Lasik; I had two cataract surgeries and can see better but still need glasses. Glad you’re moved in and are unpacking; it does take a while. I too am feeling a bit depressed and have had a constant nagging headache for 4 days which puts me on edge. I’m not prone to headaches so I hate it.

    • Jenni Elyse
      Jenni Elyse says:

      I’m sorry you’re feeling a bit depressed too. Is it because of your daughter moving out? I’m also sorry about the headache. I get headaches all the time so I know how awful they are. I hope it goes away soon. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m glad you were able to join in the Sunday post. It takes awhile to unpack, give yourself time. I just moved some things around in the kitchen and it’s been 6 months since I unpacked there.

    Anne – Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Anne! ๐Ÿ˜€ Me too. I’m trying to be patient with the unpacking. I just want to have everything organized, especially my library and the kitchen. LOL.

    Oh I’m sorry you’re feeling depressed! For what it’s worth, sending you lots of positive vibes and well wishes! I’ve been kinda out of the blogosphere for a few days and am catching up now- sometimes it helps me to dip into this world because it calms me? Maybe? I don’t know, but I hope doing the Sunday Post this week helps.

    Ooh I missed Narnia discussions, I see. I’ll have to catch up to those too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m looking forward to seeing Thor.

    I hope the unpacking is going well. Sorry you are depressed, it is hard to know what we need when that happens. Typically for me, it’s more rest. Love your nails.

    I really hope you feel much better soon. I love Thriller!! That video is so much fun to watch. I love when you said, “discovered some songs that I remember being awesome and arenโ€™t.” That made me laugh out loud, because it’s so true.

    • Jenni Elyse
      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Wendy! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think Thriller is so fun to watch too. I love the dancing especially. I’m glad you laughed at what I said. I thought it was funny when I wrote it, but I wasn’t sure if anyone would say something. Thanks! You made my day, lol.

    I’m sorry you’re feeling depressed right now. There’s a lot going on in the world, and it sounds like in your life as well, with the move. I hope you find some comfort in reading, and that the depression lifts soon.

    • Jenni Elyse
      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Lark! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah, there’s a lot going on right now. I’m sure my depression will lift. It’s just something I have to deal with, not as often as I used to, thankfully.

    Iโ€™m glad you did participate this week ๐Ÿค—. I canโ€™t wait to see Thor. I hear itโ€™s very good. And I loved the finale of Ms. Marvel, too. Enjoy Stranger Things! The latest season is arguably the best season, so far. Rivaled only by the first season. โค๏ธ

    • Jenni Elyse
      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Tessa! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m glad I did too. And, I hope you like Thor as much as I did. And, I’m so excited to see what happens in Stranger Things.

    I’m sorry about the depression. I hope posting helped relieve it even a little bit. I’m glad you posted. Many virtual hugs to you.

    I really enjoyed the season finale of Strange New Worlds. I have to get back to Stranger Things. It can be so crazy at times.

    I hope you have a good week!

      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Yvonne! ๐Ÿ˜€ Posting has helped a little bit. The finale for Strange New World was fantastic. I’m excited to see where they take it from here.

    Hi Jenni,
    Thank you for your comment on Olivia’s photo earlier today – we both wanted to say a big thanks!
    I’m sorry to hear you’ve been feeling down but from reading your comments, I’m happy to hear that posting has helped. Your nails look beautiful. I’m excited for you to get LASIK! I had this done about 2+ years ago and I am so happy that I did. Feel free to ask me any questions if you have them, sending good thoughts your way!
    Sara and Olivia

      Jenni Elyse says:

      You’re welcome, Sara! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for finding my blog and commenting. I’m so glad to hear that LASIK has been awesome for you. I’m hoping it will be for me as well. I’m a bit apprehensive, but I’m sure it will all be okay.

    • Jenni Elyse
      Jenni Elyse says:

      Thanks, Bonnie! ๐Ÿ˜€ I appreciate your well wishes and prayers. I’m sure it will lift soon. It’s just something I have to deal with, luckily not as often as I used to. I hope you enjoy Strange New Worlds as much as I have.

    I’m hoping we get to see Thor next week. I’m only two eps in to Ms. Marvel & sadly, I do not like the new Star Trek. We finished ST when the latest season dropped.

    We’ve been watching Murders in the Building, The Old Man and Halo & like them all.

    LOVE your cute mani!

    Sorry you’re feeling depressed right now. I guess it’s bound to happen but you are handling it in a healthier way so that’s progress! I need to practice what I preach lol and to get back to my CBT workbook.

      Thanks, Karen! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you enjoy Thor. And, I hope you like the rest of Ms. Marvel. Sorry you don’t like the new Star Treks. I love Murders in the Building. It’s so much fun! I haven’t seen The Old Man or Halo.
