Week in READview:
It never fails, around this time every year I start getting that awful pain in my ear and wind up with an ear infection or some sort of bacterial infection in my face. Well on Sunday, my ear was hurting and by Monday morning I was in so much pain I took a day off and a trip to the doctors. With everything going on I figured I need to get this taken care of before it turns into something else. I had an ear infection and sinus infection. The doctor put me on antibiotics and I took an extra day off on Tuesday just to rest and let the meds kick in. By Friday, I was feeling much better, thank goodness.
Since I was out of work on Monday and Tuesday, I had a lot of catching up to do and on Thursday I had my sons virtual open house. It was 45 minutes of watching videos of how each class will be and they also had Q&A session but since I was watching the videos I missed them. He is in 10th grade so I know the deal and even with virtual he is doing pretty good
I was told it was ok to do this and since I am a very proud momma I thought I would share. While I know a lot of people have different views on this, I am going to share it anyway. Last week my daughter (12) came out to us as Gay and Non-Binary. We are super proud of her. Yes, I still use her since she is ok with She/Her/They/Them. I ask her before I use a term just to make sure I am not making her uncomfortable. We are happy for her and just want her to be happy, in our family, you are who you are and you love who you love. We are a no judgement family. We love her no matter what. No matter who she loves or how she identifies she is still my baby and I love her just the same. Plus for 12, I am proud that she knows herself so well, while she can change her mind at anytime, we really just love her no matter what. So I am a proud parent and love her/them to pieces!
October 23 Poppy Von Schweetz will be 7 months of pure terror but absolutely adorable. We have decided she is a sour patch kid, sometimes sweet and sometimes sour but so much fun. She plays fetch with these little balls that have glitter strands on them. She loses them all the time. I found them on Amazon and bought a few more. Probably should have looked at how many came in the package, I thought it said 20 but apparently we are getting 200. lol oops.
Had a good reading week and I think I am going to continue with the books I had for my TBR List as my next read for the FraterFest and the Halloween Readathon in the COYER Group. I am so obsessed with horror/slasher books at the moment! I was also in the mood for love so I grabbed Insatiable on KU i didn’t realize it was a book 3 but it’s cute so far so I don’t want to stop and it’s listed as a stand alone so I hope I don’t get confused, I hate reading books out of order.
I might grab Kill River 2 but I am not sure if I want to spend the money or wait for it to go on sale since I had issues with the first one, however the last few days it has been stuck in my head so I might want to read the next one….maybe.
What I grabbed:
