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

What happened this week?

This was a full week and I just feel so tired from dealing with everything. I’ve been ramping up my work again the past few weeks as I thought I was doing better, but this week proved that my energy levels are still pretty low and I had too much on my plate. I managed to move a few small things and distribute a few things over more days, but it was a tough week. So I am trying to take it slower again the next few weeks. I closed my sign up form for tours again and hope to focus on assistant work and the events I already agreed to for the next few weeks.

I had a doctor visit early this week. It actually went pretty well, but I am always anxious and get dissociated when visiting the doctor, which is not nice and takes some time to recover from. I had a weird black spot on a toenail that the doctor said will grow out on it’s own, so that was a relief it’s not something bad. And I have an issue with weird dents in my fingernails, which the doctor thought might be due to not enough calcium. I don’t eat or drink a lot of dairy so that would make sense I might not get enough calcium. So I am taking calcium supplements now to see if that works.

That got me wondering if part of my tiredness might be from B12 shortage. As a vegetarian that’s always something to be careful of. In the past half year or so some of the vegetarian meat substitution products I liked changed and I stopped eating some of them which has resulted in me eating less of these vegetarian products that have B12 added. I figured taking some extra B12 might help, so I am trying that now.

Then later in the week we suddenly found water in the cabinet below our kitchen sink and found out another spot is leaking. Almost the whole stuff and pipes below the kitchen sink got replaced last year when it was leaking, but the only part that didn’t get replaced is leaking now. That was not something I wanted to have to deal with this week, but we made an appointment for next week to get it fixed.

Work wise I had a lot of formatting work to do, which was fun. I formatted 3 new books and made changes to 4 others, all for the same author. A lot of work, but fun to do. I also had a tour stating this week that I had organized, some work for future tours, email replies and checking sign up forms.

I’ve also been doing some thinking about my business and had a good idea to simplify my tour offerings to make it easier for me and the authors and bloggers.

  1. Now that was a roller coaster of a week you had. Hopefully the calcium and B12 supplements help regulate those health issues and that is super that you found a way to streamline your tour work to make it better for you and the authors. Woohoo getting your book formatting done and reading a nice stack this week.

    Have a good week, Lola!

    • It sure was a rollercoaster of a week. I hope the calcium and B12 will help. I still have the implement the changes to my tour work, most did some thinking about it this week, hopefully next week or so I can update my website and such with it. The formatting work was fun to do. I was surprised I still got so many books read this week.

    • It will probably take a few weeks before I notice any changed from the supplements, but I hope they help. It’s a pain when things in your house break.

  2. I think starting B12 is a good thing! I take it and I do eat meat, because I know my levels are still lower than they should be. I hope the things you’re trying will start helping! I get that you have to kind of take a step back and make sure things are not causing you more stress. I hope this week goes better for you, and I need to check out more of your reviews. I’m not getting to comment much other than the weekends, so I’m behind! But I will be checking out Violet Moon for sure!

    • I didn’t realize even some people who do eat meat need more B12. The first few years after I became a vegetarian they checked my B12 yearly and it was never a problem. I haven’t let it get tested in a while now and my eating habits changed, so taking some extra seems like a good idea to try.

      I was trying to do some more work, but clearly I wasn’t able to handle that yet. It is hard to fit in time to comment, I struggle with that as well.

  3. Hope the supplements help my hubby just got on calcium and he takes vitamin d as well. I hope your able to reduce the stress and able to make things more manageable so your not feeling so worn out. Hope you have a great reading week.

    • The new calcium pills have vitamin d in them as well, before that I took another vitamin d pill. I hope they help. I am trying to take it more easy for a while and hopefully that helps.

    • Same here, I really dislike it when something breaks and I have to figure out how to fix it or wait till someone can come and fix it. It’s always disrupting. Luckily it got resolved this week.

  4. Hopefully the B12 will help as well as some calcium supplements. I have to take Folic Acid and Vitamin D supplements because mine are so low. My doctor comes to me because I hate going to the doctors office too.

    • I hope the supplements will help. I also take vitamin D supplements as it’s in the calcium pills, before this I took a separate one. That’s nice the doctor comes to you.
