Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer . 

In my private life

Happy Sunday!

The big news this week is that I slept eight hours four nights in a row from Thursday night to today!

That seems underwhelming right?

Well no if you followed my previous weekly Sunday posts! You probably know that my dog had problems and drank way too much, waking me up to 6 times a night for a month!
I was so exhausted that I am not ashamed to say that at past 50, I called my 82 years old mom to the rescue!
I just wanted one night of good uninterrupted sleep!

And my mom took my dog for one night.
It was bliss for me! And my pup woke my mom only once!!! Frustrating and yet I was relieved because I didn’t feel guilty LOL

Since that moment, my dog seems to wake up only once a night (I hope I won’t jinx anything up writing this!).

This was my main news.

I worked a lot this week, even on Wednesday who usually is my day off and I was so exhausted that I didn’t catch up with comments! That’s what I’ll do right now after posting!

Last, some of you follow me on Instagram and maybe saw this reel yesterday. I am just so disheartened about Instagram determined to become TikTok and hiding our pictures that I just had to make a satire!

I hope you’ll enjoy!

Also I can’t wait to see the movie inspired by Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens next month!
I am leaving the trailer for you here below.

On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)

I have read three books and reviewed two. One of them is by the amazing Fredrik Backman and if you have read Beartown and You Against Us, you’ll want to read The Winners too!

Thanks for reading!

  1. When I first saw the title I thought it was going to be another story about you rescuing your daughter, and then what an awesome surprise to see that it was you who called your mom for help 😀 That makes me so happy, to know that my girls stil might need me too when they are 50 😀

  2. I’m glad to hear you got some good sleep (and didn’t have to feel guilty too much either ;)) and fingers crossed it’ll stay at maximum getting up once a night. I’m also so excited for the Where The Crawdads Sing movie, I adored the book and the trailer looks amazing already.

  3. Lol! I’m 50 too and call my mum to help me when things are tough. She says, “once a mum always a mum!” Glad that you’re getting your sleep now, Sophie.

  4. I’m hating social media nowadays. They’re utterly exhausting and constantly trying to be each other! Like, have some originality! There’s a market for one that focuses mostly on words, one on short videos, one on pictures etc… There’s plenty of people and people will have more than one! But they’re all obsessed with being the biggest and only that they’re losing the very thing that made people enjoy them! Grrrrrr. (Rant over.)

    Glad you’re well Sophie and that you managed to get some good sleep!! 🙂

  5. Oh the blessing of a good night’s sleep! How wonderful! Where the Crawdads Sing was one of my favorite reads! Though I am culling my home library, I did add this one to my shelves. I’ve read the first of the Beartown series and a few of Backman’s books. He is one of the few authors I am backreading with joy!

  6. I’m glad you’re finally getting some sleep I have not read Where the Crawdads Sing yet, but I have a copy and I must read it before I see the movie!

  7. I’m sooooooooooo jealous of your blissful sleep! I have a cat that wakes up before 5am wanting to breakfast and then to go out to the patio to finish her sleep.

    So glad your doggie is doing better now and yay for Mom taking the dog for one night.

  8. Well, your mom’s a star. That was so nice of her to mind your dog so you could get a good nights sleep. Wait, you’re off every Wed? So, you work a 4-day week? If that is so, that’s amazing! There are some areas of my business that do 4-day work week, but they have to work 10 hour days. I couldn’t do it.

  9. Gigi usually wakes me up too once a night and when she’s at my mom’s house when I’m away she doesn’t it it. Smh 😛

  10. I didn’t know Wednesdays are your day off, that’s my day off too! Why didn’t I know this?!!! Glad you were able to get some sleep. I actually posted on TT this weekend but not sure if I’ll keep it up or not!!

  11. I’m glad you were able to get some sleep! Unfortunately, it seems like Pinterest is also becoming TikTok. Only my video pins have been getting views recently. I hate it. If I want to see TikTok videos, I’ll go on TikTok! I want Pinterest to be itself. 🙁
