One of those weeks.

Illustration by Katie Evans, hello hello design, for Matchbook Magazine.

My scorecard for the past seven days:

  • Allergic reactions: 2
  • Visits to quick care facility: 1
  • Visits to doctor: 1
  • Flat tires: 1
  • Days leaving work early or coming in late due to previously mentioned incidents: 3 (did I mention I started a new job 2 weeks ago?)
  • Days feeling like my body has been slammed against a wall a few times thanks to pollen hurricane called Spring: 7

The cure for such a week? Spending every free moment snuggled under the covers reading and/or catching up on DVR. Which is what I did.

Weapons of choice:

  • Friday Night Bites by Chloe Neill
  • Glee
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • Harry Potter Weekend (don’t ask me why I watch on ABC Family when I own all the DVDs)
  • Big Love (yup, mind still blown from the finale)
  • Lots of pillows
  • One of the quilts my grandma made me.

I feel almost back to normal. But I may indulge a little longer. Don’t judge.

    Mostly, I get cuddles from our dog and cat. They love to congregate when I rest somewhere, and it feels really nice that they do. Makes me feel loved. :)

More about me

By the way: I really love to share. Just bought something awesome? I want to tell you all about it. Sometimes I receive affiliate payments for your click or purchase — which is really just icing on the cake for me, because I'd be happy to tell you about it anyway. Also? I really love to give advice from my own experiences in blogging, business, and design. But your situation may be totally different than mine, and I have no control over that. So, my advice doesn't come with guarantees, and the information provided here is for educational and informational purposes only. Let's keep things friendly, ok?
