Sunday Post #78


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Okay, okay, okay. I'm up but a bit sluggish today. It's been a few late nights this weekend, and I haven't minded at all. I stayed at my mom's Friday night watching over my grandma and came home when they returned, then last night I went out for a few drinks. It was nice to kick back and enjoy music and talk.

Other than that the weeks been a boring one. I feel like I'm getting a lot done in books as I'm finishing up two jobs this weekend. And got an audiobook under my belt.

I've been trying a new commenting system. See, I was having troubles with Blogger's commenting system as comments were disappearing and not showing up in my emails and all sorts of things. Not to mention the hundreds (I'm not kidding) of spam comments I get without the verification on. It's terrible. So I tried the new one I have going now, InteseDebate. And I'm not happy with it either. First, I lost all my Sunday Post comments on the blog last week. I have the email and record on InteseDebate, but they are not on the blog. And it reverted back to Bloggers comment system for that one post. Grrr. I also am the spoiled type in that I like to use the link that is with the name to find my commenters and visit them back.

So, I guess after my current giveaway is over, I'll switch back to blogger. Anyone else have an idea on any commenting systems that can be used in blogger?

The Fit Booker:

Goal:  Workout in any form of exercise (or on Wii Fit) 2x's a week. (to feel better and hope to drop a few pants sizes)

How did I do last week... I did it! I got my two days in on the treadmill. I was hoping for a third day, but kiddo has places to be and kaboshed that day for me. But I'm happy with the two days. And something else I'm noticing, I sleep better on the nights that I workout. So now I want to do it more.

Review & Review Consideration:
Phantom's Dance by Lesa Howard (in audiobook)
Goodreads Synopsis:
Christine Dadey's family uprooted their lives and moved to Houston for her to attend the prestigious Rousseau Academy of Dance. Now, two years later, Christine struggles to compete among the Academy's finest dancers, her parents are on the brink of divorce, and she's told no one about her debilitating performance anxiety and what she's willing to do to cope with it. Erik was a ballet prodigy, a savant, destined to be a star on the world's stage, but a suspicious fire left Erik's face horribly disfigured. Now, a lonely phantom forced to keep his scars hidden, he spends his nights haunting the theater halls, mourning all he's lost. Then, from behind the curtain he sees the lovely Christine. The moldable, malleable Christine. Drawn in by Erik's unwavering confidence, Christine allows herself to believe Erik's declarations that he can transform her into the dancer she longs to be. But Christine's hope of achieving her dreams may be her undoing when she learns Erik is not everything he claims. And before long, Erik's shadowy past jeopardizes Christine's unstable present as his obsession with her becomes hopelessly entangled with his plans for revenge.
