Day 6 and 7 update

I combined day six and seven. Because both were busy and short at the same time. I’ve been feeling off this week, not sure why, other than maybe my depression is sneaking up on me. But let’s get to the update.

Day six I worked most of the day. But when I got home I did some laundry of my own. I also spent most of my evening doodling. Then I ended my night watching Fire Country with my boyfriend.

Day seven was a little better than the last few days. I felt like my spirit was up a little bit. I got grocery shopping done, more cleaning and I knit a winter hat for my boyfriend. I kept myself busy. Because today the urge to read was not going away no matter what. So, keeping my myself busy was the best way to keep myself from picking up a book.

Also, today was the last day of no reading. Finally the day is here. I can’t believe tomorrow I can finally read a book. I can already tell you now, that tomorrow will be an all day reading day. I seriously can not wait till tomorrow. It’s going to be the best day of my life.

Note: later today I will post an overall update of how week four went for me.

Thank you for reading! Have you ever went a week without reading? How did it go for you?
