Week in READview:

Real life & Blogging:

The kids had their first week of school. It went great (rolls eyes) They had plenty of time to figure this out and of course no information was given about remote until that day school started. It was a MESS. By the end of the week things started to settle down but it still seems like they don’t have it completely worked out. I feel like the hybrid idea was easy to do and remote need more information and needed to be worked out more. since it’s something no one has done before, but I feel we had plenty of time to figure out a bunch of different options before school started again. The kids do seem to like their teachers and I think they will do well this year.

The weather has been GORGEOUS in the morning and I am loving it. I can’t wait for it to get cooler and I can open the windows.

I didn’t have a lot of posts this week because I had a set back with my meds and did something stupid. I am now back on them and getting back to feeling more in control. Sometimes the medicine makes you feel so much better you tell yourself you don’t need them anymore. I told myself to stop letting myself that because it’s not helping. 😉

My daughters competition cheerleading started officially this week, so can we say SUPER busy. She has practice two days a week for an hour and a half. She will also have a few Saturday practices that will last 3 hours. Comp Cheer is no joke and they work hard, I know she will be taking on a lot and she really wanted to do this but I know she will be amazing and I can’t wait to see her perform.

I have been busy with a bunch of fun design jobs and also been working on other design stuff. I am so happy to be busy and if anyone is interested this is still happening and I can also do blog redo if you are looking to update your blog header for the new year. 🙂 Just send me an email and I can send you a quote!

The Shadow of What Was Lost is a chunky book, so I am going to read my TBR Book at the same time. My reading this week was slow because school started but I am hoping to do catch up on Monday and back to reading for at least an hour or more when everyone goes to bed.


What I grabbed:

Give me a HIGH FIVE! I was a good girl this week but I do have my eye on a few new releases that will probably ruin me in the next two week! 🙂

  1. I hope things get better with the remote rollout! I totally get what you’re saying, I feel like this pandemic has been going on for months and still no one prepares at all. Everyone (well not everyone) just acts like it’s no big deal! And yes we knew school was gonna have to be, to some extent, remote and why weren’t schools more prepared? Anyway I hope your situation there gets better soon!

    We’ve been opening our windows here as it has really cooled down.

    Good luck with the cheerleading! It’s nice that the kids can still have things like that. I think it’s good for them to find something and really go after it. Hope your week is a good one Michelle and take care!!

  2. I am just so glad my daughter is in college taking classes that they do online regularly even without COVID. She’s very responsible and I don’t have to do much. We have finally been in the 80s instead of the 90s and this week looks like mostly 70s which is just great. Thanks for hanging with me during this crazy week.

  3. I’m sorry the week was so rough school wise. We had been warned ahead of time that the first week or two would be spent getting everyone acclimated and not to expect any “real” academics to be taken on. So, at least as a parent I expected it, but I really felt for the teachers. Most didn’t know if they would be hybrid or strictly virtual, what grade, or even what classes–for those who teach middle school and high school– they would be teaching until like four days before kids started back to school. So, yeah, most of the planning done came in a rush and meant two weeks of “fluff” as my teacher friends like to call it. There was a lot of figuring out what worked and what wouldn’t. I am sure there will be more adjustments made as we go. I hope it does get better for your kids. I am glad they like their teachers! My daughter really misses being in school and seeing her friends. Remote learning has had its challenges–she’s easily distracted and gets bored quickly. We won’t talk about how she sings while the teacher is talking. It’s been an experience, that’s for sure.

    I wish your daughter the best this competition season! What a great experience for her! I hope she enjoys it. It’s a lot of hard work, but I am sure well worth it.

    I am glad you are doing better, Michelle. I hope you have a great week! Enjoy your reading!

  4. In the state where I live school starts Monday. I am absolutely curious how things will work out but from what I heard already our schools didn´t have enough time either to prepare for the new school year properly because they got the information last minute. It is far from being perfect but I have the hope that things will improve when they see what works and what not. Have a wonderful new week and happy reading.

  5. I hope virtual school goes well for the kids. It’s never easy to be in the midst of a radical change, but that’s where we all are for now. I really feel for the teachers, parents, and students having to navigate new ways of teaching and learning.

    We’ve had so much rain, and when it isn’t raining, it has been both muggy and buggy, so I haven’t been out much. That will change as we move into fall. I’m looking forward to getting out for walks again!

  6. I have done the same thing with medication before: felt better so I assumed I didn’t need it. My anxiety bitch slapped me back into reality and I won’t try that again!
    I think everyone who started back to school digitally this week has said there were issues. Tech issues, internet issues, communication issues. I can’t even imagine!

  7. I’ve noticed that the majority of the schools left everything for last minute. I definitely should be thankful I work at a school that prepared for every possible outcome since July and warned the parents beforehand of everything we would do. If only other schools would do the same. This is already stressful enough. Good luck to your daughter with cheerleading!

  8. Your a busy bee! I agree if they were going to go the route of remote learning they knew that well in advance to be more organized. Hope next week is better!

    The two book you are reading are so opposite each other it made me chuckle…lol. 🙂

    Have a great week and happy reading!!

  9. *High five* Yay for not adding to the TBR pile! I added one keeper copy myself, plus 2 review books I couldn’t say no to! I was weak! Lol. And yet, I’m on another TBR kick and trying to find the right spooky read for my giveaway next month! My current read is shaping out to be a perfect contender for it! Lol.

    Glad to hear your weather is nicer! I’m still waiting on that myself. In truth though, the temperatures are under the 90s, but I’m wanting more 60s than upper 70s. It could be worse though. Lol. Hope you enjoy reading your books for this week!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!
