What a crazy and busy week this has been! First, I mentioned that I was going to Ikea last weekend – well, I found two beds that fit my criteria of aesthetically pleasing, good quality, and reasonably priced. We also picked out two platform mattresses and scheduled everything to be delivered on Saturday. What started out fairly easy became a comedy of errors as the week progressed. At one point, I even had 4 mattresses and no beds scheduled to be delivered. Currently, I have the correct number of mattresses and beds (well, almost – I actually have 3 beds ordered with a pending cancellation of one of those beds) on their way and they should get here soon. One mattress is scheduled for Monday or Tuesday. Whew!
I spent the entire week moving around both girls’ bedrooms, and I had to clean out my younger girls’ room of an unreal amount of clutter – every surface and every drawer was crammed packed full. She is a huge packrat. My grandmother was like that too to the point where even the trunk of her car was completely filled – always. So much stuff and so much dust – it’s no wonder she suffered from post-nasal drip constantly since she (like me) has a dust mite allergy. I’m almost done but took me all week – every day. Like my post title says, what a busy week!

My sinfully and shockingly decadent watch this week was the reboot of Gossip Girl. Do I miss Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and Penn Badgley? Oh, definitely, but who wouldn’t? But this new group doesn’t even try to be like the original cast, though, and I’m glad. Also, Gossip Girl is revived by the teachers of their private school to keep these entitled brats in check, and I love that we know that up front, that the teachers took it on, and that they are using Instagram this time around because blogs are a thing of the early 2000s. Yes, I’m clearing my throat at that last bit but I do agree that Instagram is the perfect platform for Gossip Girl.
I watched The Tomorrow War with Chris Pratt last night and, wow! If you like sci-fy action flicks especially of the alien and time travel variety, you must watch this movie today or tonight on Amazon Prime. You will thank me! There was only one part that bothered me because I felt like if I knew something the main character should too, but he didn’t. When you feel that way yourself, just go with it. It’s too good not to. ❤️

This week is going to be unusual because all of the books I reviewed have a big historical fiction component to the stories, and I rarely do historical fiction. It just kind of happened that way. Hope you enjoy this unique week because I go back to normal next week.
