WIR vectorstock_43821-1-1Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Real Life & Blog News:


IMG_3145On Wednesday I got to pick up my baby and they said he was doing great! He is just like my Ryan, he still has some outbursts, a little impulsive with what he says and he is easily annoyed but this is all normal behavior for Ryan that will be worked on through therapy and the home service we will be getting in a couple weeks. I was so happy to have him home, my daughter has been over the moon since we surprised her on Wednesday with his homecoming she had no idea, so when she came home from school she walked into his room to find him sitting there, she squeezed him and they haven’t left each others side since. She is happy to have her brother and BFF home again. We are aware that we still have a long way to go but have so much faith that it will all work out for him and the family. YAY! My Baby is home!!!!

Blogging is back in 100% mode, I am ready to start getting those posts out and setting some stuff up. I am also looking forward to visiting again, I did a few people this week and plan to do more this week and weekend.

Speaking of this weekend, it’s BLOGGIESTA, it’s only two days and I had hoped to start early on Friday but the day got busy and I didn’t have a chance but I spend most of Saturday and most of Sunday organizing my books into a spreadsheets like I have been trying to do for the last 3 months. 🙂

This weekend is WWE Money in the Bank, so Ryan came home at the perfect time since he missed one two weeks ago. He is very excited, as am I, it’s my favorite kind of SUNDAY!

COYER is also starting soon! You still have time to join us!

  1. Welcome home, Ryan! 😀

    I am madly in love with the cover of Serafina and the Black Cloak! So pretty!

    Hooray for getting into the acknowledgements! That’s so exciting! When I got mentioned, I was flailing around the house and shoving my Kindle in my mom’s face so she could see. LoL

  2. Hi Michelle, first time here! cute blog! Mirrorland series seems interesting! we seem to like the same genres so I’ll visit often. Following your blog now everywhere. Glad to see you so happy with your baby back at home. Have a great week 🙂

  3. YAY so very happy that Ryan is back home with you !! I’d like to be more organised, I picked up the pace with reading but I’ve got behind again with blogging and reviewing *sigh* … hard to keep all the balls in the air lol. Enjoy your week, I’m sure you will now your beautiful boy is home and happy reading 🙂

    • Thank you Teddyree, I know, I am so excited and he is doing ok, just needs to settle back into his old routine.

      My spreadsheets are awesome for my books but the blogging and review not so much. I am really trying to get my butt in order otherwise I wont have anything to post…ever 🙂

  4. Yay that Ryan got to come home!! I’m so happy for you guys 😀
    How as Serafina and the Black Cloak? I’ve had my eye on it for a while but been putting it off.
    I put my books in a spreadsheet this week too! I did have a handwritten list of my review pile, but I’ve been getting a lot more recently and it was getting out of hand. It’s nice to be organized even though I know mine won’t stay that way 😉
    Hope you have a great week!

    • Serafina was different, it was fast paced or slow just a interesting read. I actually really enjoyed it and thought serafina was adorable, the end was weird but it was good.

      I usually write the review as soon as I am finished reading the book but lately I have been finished the book really late and it’s to late to write the review so I just write notes so I don’t forget the next day. Now I just keep forgetting to write the actual review 🙂

  5. YAY for Ryan being home!! *doing the happy dance*

    I wish you smooth sailing and good luck getting the blog ahead. I’m hoping to get some things done on mine this coming week. Um, Tuesday’s Task sounds suspiciously like me. hehehehe

    Wow. Ashley Nixon seems pretty awesome! Congrats!

  6. I am SO happy for all of you that Ryan is finally back home again, Michelle! The picture of both your kids together is so precious, and is shows that they’re happy to be together again, too.
    I’m glad you’re feeling more like blogging again, and spreadsheeting, and just feeling more energetic all over 🙂
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading!

  7. So glad that Ryan is home, I hope the meds help him and some sort of normal can happen. 🙂 I can’t believe COYER is this Saturday!!!! Panic time…lol. All that last minute prepping..I still never did a goal post…aaaahhh. Maybe I will just put it in my kick off post…lol. 🙂

    Nice haul, enjoy your books. 🙂

  8. This is great that Ryan is home now. He looks good and I hope everything works out well. Good luck on the Bloggiesta. I would love to do this one day but so far work gets in the way. Have a great week!

    • Oh Kathy! Bloggiesta is fantastic, even just joining a little is totally worth it, If they do a week one again you totally should jump on, the twitter parties are fantastic and you learn so much with the mini challenges they have.

      Thank You, he is doing very good. Just trying to readjust to being home. We are just so happy he is finally home!
