I wish I had something really awesome to write about for today’s 30 day blogging challenge topic … But I don’t. Not really. I’m going to try to make it work anyway.
This week’s topic: The Best Thing That Happened To Me This Week
Like I said, I wish I had a great story to share. It would be awesome to be able to say, “My life is really exciting, so great things happen all the time!” But … That’s not real life. At least not mine.
This week has actually been particularly shitty because I’ve been sick. I had a cough for about a week that was mostly just annoying. Then, suddenly, I was sick. Last Friday I started feeling worse, and the weekend basically consisted of me laying around on the couch, reading and watching TV (and coughing and blowing my nose). I also had a fever on and off for four days. Ugh. I’m still sick, though I’m slowly starting to come out of my funk. Very slowly.
Anyway, since I’ve been sick, I really haven’t done much. I go to work, I come home, I read, I watch TV with Eric, I update my blog … And that’s about it. I just haven’t had the energy to do anything else. And since I haven’t done much, well … There’s nothing too exciting to share.
I realize this has turned into a rant about being sick. I also realize no one really wants to read something like that. So … Sorry.
Instead of making this entire post about how shitty it is to be sick, though, I’m going to end by sharing a few positive things (however small some might be).
I finished my fourth book of the year. I still have a ton of catching up to do if I want to hit my goal of 50 this year, but it’s still progress!
Eric and I tried a new recipe on Saturday night. Even though I felt like crap that day, I had fun cooking with my husband. (Oh, and the recipe also turned out well. I’ll be sharing it soon!)
And finally, the biggest piece of news. I mentioned it in last Saturday’s post, but I’ll mention it again because it’s definitely the best thing that has happened in the recent past. I was offered a new position within my current company last week! I won’t start until later this month, but it’s a move I’m really looking forward to. My new position comes with added responsibilities and a slight pay bump, which is always nice. While I love my current coworkers and boss, I really felt like it was time for me to make a move in order to further my career. I can’t wait to get started!
