Off the Blog:
On Friday we had to say goodbye to our baby girl Buttons. We tried so hard to get her better but she just wasn’t making any progress and she was in pain and uncomfortable. We spent the week spoiling her with extra treats, sleeping on the bed and kitten kisses. It has been very hard for us, I have been taking it rather hard. She was my baby for 15 years, I will miss her forever. We did all we could for her and we know we did the right thing. I have no regrets just that I wish it wasn’t so soon. It happened so fast and I don’t even think we had time to process it all. We really had hoped she would get better. She was very much loved and will be missed so much.
On Thursday, My daughter and I were in the kitchen and my son was in the living room. The house started to sway and shake, the door started to rattle rather hard and the dog started to bark. You can hear a slight rumble. It only lasted for a few second and we all stared at each other. I thought a truck went by but I didn’t hear anything. I looked at my daughter and said I think that was an earthquake. We waited and sure enough on the news we saw that they had a 4.1 earthquake in Delaware which is a VERY long way from here so holy crap we felt that rather hard! They said on the news that it was felt all the way into New York. That would be the second earthquake I felt in NJ.
The week’s weather was rather odd, sort of warm but still chilly, it was nice but finally this week coming up we are getting into winter and I can’t wait! I just want the cozy so I can get into a better Christmas mood. Even with the passing of my sweet angel, I still want the holiday to be fun for the kids. It’s our favorite time of year and I want to make sure it isn’t too sad for them. I am almost done xmas shopping and finally brought out the big Xmas Dinner Book. I can’t wait to start planning for the day. Going to keep as busy as possible the next couple of days and might be taking a blogging break at the end of the month. I will let you know for sure as it gets closer. 🙂
Blogging News and Updates:
I wasn’t in the right mind to blog this week but I spend most of Saturday and today trying to get some blogging stuff done for the week. It might be light for a few days and I might be around but not completely around but Berls will have us covered at least for the first half of the week. I am hoping to be all caught up by Wednesday. Lets see if I can accomplish that, it’s been a struggle and my depression just wont seem to lift. I think the break at the end of the month will be good for me. I really think I just need a break from everything. (except work because I can’t get off that week)

Bookish News and What I grabbed
I have a feeling this slump is about to be destroyed! 🙂 Melanie Karsak came at the perfect time. I LOVE her books. I just finished her story in Mistletoes and Mischief and will now move onto Beauty and Beastly since I need to read it by December 6th or a little after. I will then go back to M&M read one story at a time squeezing other stories in as I go. I don’t think I will make my goodreads goal but I might be close.
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
