Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Real Life & Blog News:
Did you miss me last week? Did you even notice I wasn’t around? If you did Awww!!! thanks, if you didn’t don’t worry about it I wasn’t really gone for that long 🙂
I was thrown off a bit last week and it took be a gook week to pull myself back together. It started on Thanksgiving, my Nanny is 91 years old and hasn’t been doing that great, we recently had to put her in a nursing home since we were unable to really care for her anymore. She has dementia and congestive heart failure so my mom and her sister were having a hard time caring for her and worried something would happen. The nursing home lets you bring them out to visit if you want, you can take them to lunch whatever so Thanksgiving we figured we would bring her to my cousins to enjoy dinner with the family. All was going very well until she started complaining of a stomachache. So my Cousin and I were helping her to the bathroom, him in front and me walking behind her and something made me grab under her arms and she started to go down and she passed out. This happened about 4 or 5 times in my arms and at one point….I don’t even want to say it…she scared the crap out of me, I never wanted to see her like that…I just couldn’t let her go. The EMT’s came and looked her over they figured she must have had a panic attack since all her vitals were fine. When we took her back to the nursing home the Doctor on call came to look at her, she has a bunch of serious issues and we are just now realized that what happened might have more to do with her heart than panic attacks. I was/am so shaken that it pretty much threw me the rest of the weekend and the week…On top of that my sons eval from school came in since he is being reevaluated for his special services (please cross your fingers for me, it’s a long story but he can’t leave the school he is at, they are helping him, if he goes back to regular education it will be a disaster) and the one eval broke my heart since I knew most of what was in it, it’s just hard to read from someone else. I would go into detail but I just can’t right now.
So with all that I wasn’t feeling up to a Sunday post or any blogging at all. However I did read a lot because like my blog name I just needed an escape from real life for a while cause honestly last week Because Reading WAS better than real life.
I did decorate the house which looks great, I didn’t take pictures of the whole house but here is our tree 🙂
Friday I pushed myself to do a bunch of stuff that needed to get done on the blog and start getting together all my posts for the Out with the Old, In with the New! I have it mostly set up but just need to start researching and get to writing the posts, I am rather excited about them. It was a very productive day and I was able to finish all the COYER read-a-thon logos….speaking of COYER 😉
