I am starting this post with sad news. One of our friends from the book blogging community passed this week.This week Tiffany from A_TiffyFit’s Reading Corner passed away, she was battling Stage 4 colon cancer but when she went in for a chemo treatment something happened and she slipped into a coma last friday, I followed her father’s post on Facebook and I am sad to have learned she passed on Tuesday. Tiffany was a very good friend, I never met her in person but always considered her a friend even if only through the internet. She was a very compassionate, loving, caring, funny and just all around wonderful person. I will miss her a lot as I know all of her family and friends will too. I really had hoped she would have beaten cancer and I really thought she was. I admire her spirit from the time she found out she had cancer up until her final day. The cancer did not beat her! She was an amazing person, she will be missed. <3
I was able to finish the Kingdom and honestly LOVED it. So different, I was originally going to give it 4.5 stars but I think I will just leave it at 5. I really did like it.
The kids graduated to the next great so of course that means I deserved books! 😉

Real life & Blogging:
I had a three day work week this week. The beginning of the week was busy at work and I spend time helping my dad with the apartment and cleaning up out house. On Thursday was my son’s 8th grade graduation, I can’t believe he will be in the 9th grade next year! I found out a couple weeks ago that the school asked my son if he would sing the Star Spangled Banner at the graduation. He, of course, said yes. I CRIED! For such a hard song and for someone that isn’t a professional signer he killed it! I am so very proud of him and so honored to be his mom! I also had no idea he could sing! lol
On Friday my nephew graduated high school! Why is everyone getting so old?!?! Thank goodness I am staying the same. 😉 Yesterday we had his graduation party, so very proud of him too. Got some pretty awesome kids in my family.
My daughter is officially out of school and my sons school ends on Wednesday. Glad the school year is over, the kids are looking forward to the summer. I still have to work but I am hoping to get a few days to spend with them and maybe even a couple of days in August to do some day trips.
Going to try and get some blogging done today but I have a feeling it will be a very slow summer.
What I am watching:
Still watching Bones but I am looking forward to the third Season and Glow that comes out August 9th. I am also looking forward to Dark Crystal prequel that is also coming out soon. I am looking forward to binge watching some shows this summer.
What I am playing:
The Sims 4 has taken up a LOT of my time! I honestly don’t care because I am having such a good time. I also started building houses again and forgot how much fun it is and also how much time I spend on making them.
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
