Lisa’s Week in Review — 1/22/18 — 1/28/18

Another week has come to a close!  It wasn’t a bad week.  I did my annual “If Lisa Had All The Power” post, which is something that I look forward to doing every year.  On Tuesday, the Oscar nominations were announced with a minimum amount of drama.  The Sundance Film Festival came and went.  I watched and reviewed a lot of good movies.  I cut back on watching all of the true crime stations.  Somehow, I only managed to finish reading one novel this week.  I’m a bit disappointed in myself for that.  Still, tomorrow is another week and, overall, my January has kicked ass!

Here’s what I accomplished this week.
