Lisa’s Week In Review: 6/7/21 — 6/13/21


TheDescent

Down here in Texas, it’s getting hot.  This week, it hit the 90s for the first time this year.  It’s hard to believe that, less than 4 months ago, we were covered in ice and snow and it was 4 degrees in the afternoon.

As I sit here writing this, I am exhausted.  This week didn’t go the way that I was hoping.  My plan was to watch one hundred movies and write two hundred reviews.  In retrospect, that may have been an unrealistic goal for 7 days but honestly, I think the unrealistic goals are the best ones to have.

Still, I didn’t do anywhere near as much as I was hoping and I wish I could offer up an explanation that’s more profound than my back was hurting and I was tired but …. well, that’s the way it goes.  I’ll make up for it this upcoming week!

Here’s what I watched, read, and listened to this week!
