Week in READview:
Real life & Blogging:
Soooo…my Aunt passed away and since my cousin is a complete asshole we didn’t find out until a week after she passed. How fucked up is that? My aunt had three kids and two of them are fighting with the only nice one. Guess what….They didn’t tell him either. So his mom passed and they didn’t tell him. Could you believe someone could be that heartless. Oh and in the obituary…they left his name out. Like WTF. However, everyone that nows him will feel more for him than the other two so basically they made themselves look like complete assholes. I never thought people could actually do that and I was totally proven wrong…. I am so over this year.
The weather was stupid hot but the weekend turned out gorgeous. The morning had the most amazing breeze, a fall breeze, I can’t wait for fall. I am counting down the days until the weather doesn’t make me sweat.
I have opted to keep my kids home for the fall. I feel the virus was not handled properly and don’t want to put my family, my friends or teachers at risk, so I will keep both of my kids home until December. In December, I will reevaluate my decision and consider sending them back in Jan however I have no problem keeping them home. Our Town allows kids to return to school at any point but it is a 3 weeks transition period. I am still waiting for more info on my sons school but with kids like him, he will not do well if he doesn’t have a solid schedule. He did awesome at the end of last school year at home so I have a feeling he will do great.
Kitten picture….Poppy Von Schweetz is officially here a month and good gravy is she a handful but hilarious. She found these little balls with like glitter strands in them in the toy bin and she is loves them. She walks around the house with them in her mouth and if you try and take them away she growls. lol If you throw them she fetches it, she fetches better than the dog. I wanted a house of chaos and with her, we have one. lol
I plan to spend most of today blogging and getting some stuff organized. This weekend has been busy getting stuff cleaned in the house. I am looking forward to a nice productive day.
I am still currently reading Ghostland and it’s not bad but it’s taking forever to get through. I am enjoying it but notice a lot of information really wasn’t needed. After I am done I plan to jump into a few review books I received from Shadow Mountain publishing since I am in the mood for some romantic clean reads. 🙂
What I grabbed:
I loved Laura Lam’s Goldilock and I love the sound of Seven Devils plus that cover.
It came from the Sky looked like such a cute book, I am looking forward to this one also. I really just can’t stop buying books. I really not sorry either. lol Books make me so happy! I need happy since this year sucks! 🙂
