I have no idea what to write here! ~ WIR & TSP

Posted October 11, 2015 by Michelle in The Sunday Post, WIReadview / 29 Comments

WIR&TSPWeek 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 @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

On the Blog & Real Life:

Monday I celebrated my 13th anniversary with my husband and we went to my favorite place to eat, Spuntinos. The food is so yummy they serve small appetizer portions of food and you order as you go. My favorite is the Prosciutto, Gorgonzola and Fig Jam Pizza it is just so good. They have a gourmet selection of food that are just orgasmic. My husband doesn’t like it that much but he went for me since he knows I love it. We drank lots of Sangria and then went to Target to get a few things we needed. It was a nice night out while the kids stayed home.

This week was rather slow and just a little unproductive, I did spend a lot of time organizing my calendar and writing what posts go where, however I didn’t really get to do a lot of post stuff until Friday. I still have a very long list of things to do but they will get done. This weekend we have a party to go to and a cousin from Italy is here for a visit so we will be stopping by to say hello, I haven’t seen her since I was 14 so it will be nice to see her again. Today we are going Pumpkin Picking in the morning so please excuse my absence I will visit you all later in the day.

I am hoping to get a lot of blogging stuff done this weekend and this week. Plus next Saturday is the 24 hour Dewey Read-a-thon and I am so excited. I plan to donate to charity this time and found a great place to donate too. It’s for Type 1 Diabetes in honor of a 15 year old girl in town that has it. My dad is also diabetic so I thought this would be a perfect to donate too.

Ryan has some difficulty with his mood but it was easily manageable and didn’t last as long as it usually does. He has been making such great improvement but just need to get a handle on his frustration levels. I had a meeting with Julia’s school because she is having trouble with Reading and Math. It’s not a surprise really since I also had difficulty in school with both of them. She is going to get extra help and hopefully we can help her more at home. She really wants to be able to read better and it breaks my heart to see her struggle but I keep telling her to be patient it will get easier with time.

Otherwise that is pretty much it for this week, next week is a busy blog week and as I said I have tons to do. I am hoping to make HUGE dent in my list this week so fingers crossed for me. 🙂

  1. It’s funny that the behind-the-scenes preparatory and organising work can take so much time (and have so little to show for it) but it ultimately helps, doesn’t it?

    I hope you had a nice visit with your cousin.

    Oh and that pizza sounds divine!

  2. Happy anniversary! That sounds like just the kind of place I would like (and that my husband would tolerate). The pizza especially sounds good. That’s tough about Julia. Watching kids struggle with the same things we struggled with is tough but it sounds like it’s being addressed so hopefully she’ll get the boost she needs. Have a great week!

  3. Happy anniversary and I love your Halloween header!! I hate the new math they are teaching the kids now. My daughter was having a hard time with it and I also couldn’t understand it. But it is good you are getting help for her. All your new books look really good and I have Thrones & Bones. I’ve been wanting to read it for a long time. I hope you have a great week!

    • Thank you and Thank you! I wasn’t sure I was going to make one and I thought why not. I hated not to have the blog decorated for Halloween. That is my problem too, I can’t understand what they ask and since I am not very good in math to begin with it’s all kinds of confusing for me to even try and explain it.

    Aaw, happy anniversary! Sounds like you had a nice dinner. I hope you enjoy your time with your cousin. At my dad’s funeral I saw some cousins that I hadn’t seen in 2 or more decades; it was really nice. Good luck with your productivity this week and hopefully everything settles down for Ryan and Julia. It’s wonderful you are so on top of what’s happening with them at school.

  5. Hubby and I have a lunch date every other Friday. It’s nice to do something that’s just us occasionally. Of course, now that the kids are older we could go out more but then that requires money, so lunch it is. lol Happy Anniversary and that place sounds like one I’d love to give a whirl. And look at the pretty pretty books. *drools on book bib*

    • No we has some mood issues that landed him in the hospital for 3 weeks to figure out meds. They are doing very well at keeping his mood in order but every so often he has a meltdown that is borderline manic. He just needs to learn how to control his frustration, if we can figure out how to do that. 🙂

  6. That’s nice you got an evening out at a good restaurant without the kids. The food sounds good, we have some sushi and tapas restaurants here where you can order in rounds and you basically order multiple small portions till you’re full.

    Organizing your calendar does sound handy! I hope you can get some more posts written next week. I had a good productive week and got mroe posts written than I expected.

    I am sorry to hear both Ryan and Julia had some small issues. I am glad you could help Ryan and it didn’t last as long as usual. And it’s always hard when you’re doing less good in some subjects. Languages were always my weak point and it’s so frustrating when you have to do so much extra effort to get it.

    Those Stitch head books you got all look so pretty and I hope you’ll enjoy them! btw I love your halloween banner and the pumpkin lines in the post! I hope you have a great week.

    • That is the word Tapas, I couldn’t think of it when I was writing the post. I love the little portions and its fun to eat till your full lol
      I need to get my butt moving, the calendar is filling up fast and now I need to start getting stuff written.

      Math was never my strong subject so I can understand her frustration.

      They are so cute, I am hoping to read them soon with Ryan. He was very excited to get them 🙂

  7. Pumpkins, woot! Can’t believe it’s that time already, but glad it is. I need to do a bit of pumpkin shopping I guess… Happy anniversary, that pizza sounds kinda good. Course any pizza is good basically LOL. Enjoy your weekend and good luck blogging ahead!

  8. I hope you’ll find a way to help Julia, Michelle! Have you checked if she might be dyslexic? My two youngest kids are, and they are doing a lot better with the right help.
    Have fun pumpkin-picking today 🙂 And please share pics of your jack-o-lanterns when they’re ready 😉

    • Last year I asked her teacher if she thought she was and now that she is still struggling I can ask this teacher since she seems more proactive. I will bring it up when I see her this week. Thank you, it’s really the apples I go to get Of course I will share pictures, last year they did such a good job carving them out themselves.
