Sunday News #9

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 accomplished. This week was spring break for my university and I used it to get caught up in most of my classes. I’m still not caught up in one class because I had a second bout of the stomach flu this week. Overall, though, I feel great about what I did accomplish and I hope I can catch up in the last class over the next few weeks.

I’m also feeling happy and nostalgic because tomorrow is my 24th wedding anniversary. Sometimes I can’t believe Corey and I’ve been married as long as we have. It’s been hard and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.


This week on the blog:


I finished reading and posted a review of THE SOUND OF STARS by Alechia Dow this week. I want to start reading NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by Liane Moriarty or FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell today. It just depends on if I’m feeling well enough. I’ve stated before that when I’m sick, especially with a stomach bug or major headache, I can’t read. My brain doesn’t let me.


This week I’ve been listening to Star Wars prequel music because the teaser trailer for the new Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ show dropped. I John Williams SOOOOO much. I especially love the Star Wars score and the prequel scores are absolutely beautiful. “Battle of the Heroes” from Revenge of the Sith is one of my favorites from the prequels.


I watched the new Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ teaser trailer and it looks amazing!!! I’m so excited! I love Ewan McGregor. And, I don’t care what people say; I also love Hayden Christensen as Anakin. Here’s the teaser trailer if you haven’t seen it yet:

Corey and I also watched The Adam Project with Ryan Reynolds on Netflix last night. We both really enjoyed it. It was funny, full of action, and very heart-warming. The kid they got to play young Ryan Reynolds was perfect! He acted just like Ryan Reynolds did. If I didn’t know he was his own person, I would’ve thought he was Ryan Reynolds’ younger self. Hmmm, do you think I can say Ryan Reynolds again? Ryan Reynolds…


I’m really loving bingeing How I Met Your Mother with Corey. It’s been a lot of fun. I’m really enjoying watching the whole show since I’ve only seen some of the pivotal episodes. And, I love spending the time with Corey.


I want to get over this flu that I’ve now had twice in the last two weeks. My intestines are still cramping up horribly and I can’t eat much more than rice.


I need to see my doctor because of how sick I’ve been. My husband and I are worried I might have a mild case of C. difficile. I made an appointment, but his soonest opening isn’t until April 18. I also sent him a message through my patient portal, explaining what’s going on. Maybe, he’ll try to squeeze me in next week. Either that or hopefully someone will cancel so I can get in sooner.

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

    I hope you’re feeling better soon, I had a terrible head cold for most of the week so didn’t read much either. Happy Anniversary to you and your husband – I will be celebrating 26 years in a couple of weeks – I’m wondering where those years went! I wouldn’t trade my husband for the world, even though he can annoy me at times.

    Happy anniversary! I want to read nine Perfect too as I’m a big Liane Moriarty fan. And fangirl was fun.

    Obi- Wan looks fabulous. Especially the shots of Tatooine after watching The Mandalorian and Boba Fett. 🙂 I’ll admit I was not a huge fan of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan in the prequels (sacrilege, I know) but I don’t know… he’s older now and seems to fir the part better, if that makes sense, and besides the trailer looks fabulous ha ha!

    The part where’s he watching young Luke too… yes thank you!

      Thank you! 🙂 It’s okay. I understand. It’s hard to replace Sir Alec Guinness. Ewan McGregor had big shoes to fill. I liked him best in Revenge of the Sith.

    Yeah that new Star Wars things looks cool! Congrats on your anniversary! I’ll be starting Nine Perfect Strangers this week too. Hopefully it grabs me and I can get through it fast. 🙂

    Congratulations on 25 years!! Well done! I loved the series How I Met Your Mother, and think it might be time for another binge-watch of the series. I hope you feel better soon and can get an appointment soon with the doctor. They are all so busy here too, so hard to get an appointment.

      Thanks. I’m still having issues. It comes and goes all in a matter of 24 hours, usually. And, I do take something to stop the symptoms. I’m hoping it will resolve soon.
