The Sunday Post #63 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you to Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

This was the last week of classes for me, both when it comes to teaching, and when it comes to being a student. I am off from Uni for a long while, if we don’t count those pesky papers I have to write (four!) and one written exam (6 hours!) that are due in January next year. On Wednesday, we are leaving for Norway, to celebrate Christmas with my family, and we’re all really excited about it. We have a huge surprise for the children for Christmas – one I will share with you next Sunday.

I will only have a few posts up next week, as I’m not going to be around much. I don’t want to spend my family time online, but I do have three reviews plus my WoW post ready to go. After that, the blog will be more or less empty until January 2nd, apart from my Sunday posts.

I wish you all a happy holiday, and whatever it is you are celebrating, I hope you’ll get to do it surrounded by people you love, and that you enjoy spending time with.

  1. I hope you have an awesome christmas and I am really curious about the surprise you planned for your kids. Enjoy your time off from uni and have a great holiday!

  2. Have a wonderful time with your family! Safe Trip!
    Enjoy your time off, I wasn’t able to take any time off this year since I ran out of days at work but I am hoping to figure something out next year so I can take the week of Christmas off.

    Love Surprises can’t wait to hear what it is!!!

    Have a very Merry Christmas, Lexxie! Happy Reading! ox

    How thrilling to be able to spend time with family in Norway and we can’t wait to hear the news about the surprise! Glad you get to have some time for you for a little while! Hugs…RO

  4. You’ll get those pesky papers done in no time. Yay for traveling and family! And surprises! I can’t wait to hear about the suprise. *wiggles in chair* Safe travels and Merry Christmas. 🙂

  5. Oooo a Christmas surprise! I wonder what it will be. I hope you and your family have a great Christmas, and see you back online in the New year 🙂

  6. Your holiday in Norway sounds wonderful! I have always wanted to visit Scandinavian countries, since my grandparents were born and lived to adulthood in Sweden. My grandmother’s stories were the best. (And I know that Swedes and Norwegians are at odds, but I still think of them all as being part of a wonderful region).

    Enjoy! Can’t wait to learn more after your holiday about the Christmas surprise.


  7. Happy holidays to you too Lexxie! <3
    Also, best of luck on those exams and papers. T o T I can totally understand – last week was the worst for me (getting ~two hours of sleep each night was NOT healthy). Either way, holiday time is the best time so that's something to look forward to.
    Hope you have the BEST time at Norway! *sends all the cheer*

  8. You’re such a tease! I can’t wait to hear your surprise! I bet it’s a vacation, right? And do you know how weird it sounds to me when you write things like, “oh, we’re going to Norway to visit family,” like it’s just a quick flight, no biggie. Which I’m sure it is, but it’s weird for me to phantom how close all the countries are to each other over there. It’s a huge deal for me to cross the border to Canada! I can’t even do it right now b/c I don’t have credentials. I’d get locked out of my country!

    Jeez… I’m babbling… Merry Christmas to you and your family! Safe travels!!!

    • LOL Kristin. I guess I am a tease, and it isn’t a vacation…
      The flight from Geneva to Oslo is only about 2.5 hours, so yeah, it’s just a quick flight. Europe is very different from the US – it would be more like you were going to another state, not to another country.
      Thanks for stopping by, Kristin, and Happy Holidays to you, too.

  9. That is a lot of work to do over the holiday break, if you have a break from Uni! I’m not even your kid and I’m excited to know what the surprise is. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the holidays in Norway! I can’t imagine what all goes into the travel. Just driving a few hours (3-4 on average in TX between MAJOR cities) is an undertaking.

  10. A holiday in Norway sounds so fun, and I am sure it will be a wonderful time for you and your family! However your papers and a 6 hour exam just sounds like way too much work. Good luck with that! Merry Christmas to you and yours as well as a Happy New Year!
