My {Filofax} Week 7

Paper Lovestory's My Week

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day and a great week. Keep reading for a glimpse into mine.

Here’s my week:

Filofax Week 7

And for a quick recap of what happened {in case you aren’t at all interested in reading about my life}:

  • Not much happened.
  • I failed miserably at the photo-a-day challenge.
  • I caught up on a lot of YouTube and TV shows.
  • I worked out a LOT.
  • My blog is coming along well {I think.}
  • I helped bring my mother into the 21st century a little bit more.
  • and Zoey terrified us again on Sunday.

And for the longer version {for those of you who like to read or are just nosy :)}:

  • This week was fairly boring. I just didn’t have much to do.
  • I didn’t take ONE picture last week for the photo-a-day challenge. I really did keep meaning to take a picture of the entrance to my work, but I keep forgetting and I think that’s what’s holding me back.
  • I am in front of a computer 40 hours a week at work. The internet is pretty much my life to say the least. I regularly read a LOT of blogs. I also subscribe to a lot of Youtube channels. It’s easy to read things at work, but watching videos… not so much. I feel REALLY guilty watching videos, so I usually save them to my “Watch Later” playlist. Normally my Saturday mornings consist of a cup of coffee {or two}, my iPad, and a lot of Youtube and the lovely Webfinds over at Philofaxy. Lately, though, the videos and articles have been piling up, so I tried to tackle the list this week. It’s down to 93 videos right now… most of them over 10 minutes long… so I have a LONNNGGG way to go. I also caught up on the Walking Dead, and tried to clear some things off my DVR and Netflix Queue.
  • I don’t know what it is about the Tone It Up Girls, but I’ve really enjoyed their workouts. I managed to get 4/5 workouts in. {Considering I usually work out once a month, that’s saying something.} Towards the end of the week though, my enthusiasm did die off. I’m thinking that I may start waking up a bit earlier to fit a workout in before work, but as of now, I don’t know if I want to give up sleep.
  • Last week was my first real week of actively blogging. {Over 800 views this past week.} So far, I love it. I think this blog is here to stay. 2013 Goal accomplished!

Samsung TV

  • My mother has been using my old 26″ Samsung TV in the living room for several months now. It was one of the early HD, widescreen televisions but wasn’t a flat panel, so it’s huge and awkward. I got it when I was in high school, so it was probably almost 10 years old and dying a miserable, high pitched squealing death, so I finally bit the bullet and picked her out a nice 47″ smart TV to replace it. She now has access to Netflix which she hasn’t stopped talking about, and by tomorrow, she will also be the proud new owner of a BluRay player so she can take advantage of my BluRay subscriptions with Netflix and Blockbuster. I also talked her into giving me a bit of money for my old Logitech Harmony 880 remote so that I could upgrade mine to a newer model.
  • Sunday, Zoey, the dog who’d been sick last week started throwing up again. {2 days before her follow up visit to the vet…} We talked to the vet and she  recommended we not give her any food for a couple hours and prescribed her some medication for motion sickness. All is well with her at the moment.

As I mentioned earlier it wasn’t too interesting of a week, but this week seems to be looking better.

How did your week go?
