August 13th: Ready To Be Back

Ugh. I’ve been sick. I’ve had allergies. But AT LAST, I finally feel better. And it’s wonderful to not have a Kleenex shoved up my nose 24/7. Last week I did not get a lot of reading done due to being sick and sleeping. Then over the weekend, I went to the Iowa State Fair for the first time ever which was a fun weekend adventure to get away from everything. I saw the cutest baby cow (pictured below), ate a bunch of fried food, and saw lots of animals.

I got sucked back into Magnus Chase, which I’m enjoying at the moment. According to Goodreads, I’m only 34% complete with this book. This is a frustrating spot where I don’t want to be in for this month since it is the NEWTS readathon and I’m trying to get a lot of reading accomplished. But my plan for the rest of the week is to take care of myself, cook lots of homemade meals, exercise, and read to stay healthy and not fall back into a week of misery again! Below is the progress so far for this month. August 13

August 8th: Under the Weather

And then I got sick. Bleh. Since Tuesday the 6th, I have been coming home from work taking a nap, being awake enough to eat dinner, and go back to sleep for the rest of the night in prep for the next day. After a few days, I’m finally getting back to feeling a bit better and more like myself. Right now my body doesn’t feel completely exhausted but now I have this wonderful cough and sore throat. 😦 But on the bright side, I should be back to reading today! I am feeling a bit better, I no longer have a headache, and I’m starting to clean to make sure whatever I have doesn’t spread to anyone else or my boyfriend. Expect a reading update later today for today’s progress before the weekend begins!
