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 @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
On the Blog, Books & Real Life:
So last weekend I planned on doing a Week in Readview/The Sunday Post but I just didn’t have time and I figured you wont miss me to much, we did a lot of swimming and board-walking which took me away from writing it. 😉
Ok, let me apologize for lack of visits and for been so MIA the last few weeks. Summer isn’t going as I planned and I can’t seem to find the time to do anything plus I am overly stressed due to some things with Ryan. So I have had to take a step back to take care of some real life stuff. We are still working on it but one step at a time. So I am sorry for my disappearance, I will be back full blogger after my date. 😉 (see below)
Tomorrow I will be going on a short hiatus because I have a date with a Mouse on August 6th 🙂 We leave for vacation, DISNEY, on the 6th and return on the 13th so no Sunday post next week and I will try to squeeze one out when I get back for the 14th. I have a lot of cleaning up to do and packing so I thought I will just put the blog aside a week early because why is it so stressful to pack?!?! 🙂 I am really looking forward to it and hope to get a much needed break from all things real life. I also plan to read, so I am stocking up my kindle. I wanted to take the book And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich but I didn’t want to take the book with me, trying to pack light. So thankfully, I was accepted for it on Netgalley and can now read it while I am way. I am actually very excited since that will be my first read of vacation, if I can wait that long. 🙂
So on Friday, Ryan is sitting by the computer, Biscuit is doing her hamster thing, I am in the kitchen. Ryan starts screaming, like terror scream, my name. I run into the living room and look at where he points. In Biscuits cage it has two shelves that lay rather easy on little bars on the ends of the cage for her to climb up on. She can lift it from the bottom, it has always worried me but she never bothered with it. Somehow she stood on her little castle and lift the bar getting her neck trapped between the end of the shelf and the cage wall (that is a very small space). She was hanging by her neck, choking. I screamed in a panic..HOLY SHIT!!! (I may have repeated that the entire time I was trying to help her) I tried to get the top of the cage open but only managed to open it enough to fit my arm in and lift the shelf so she would drop to the bottom of the cage. Poor little girl was so scared. I quickly scooped her up to check to make sure she was ok. She looked fine but so scared, her ears were back letting me know she was freaking out. I comforted her for a bit and put her back in. I have now wired the shelves so they are unable to move for now until I can find a better way of keeping them secure. My son is a hero for saving that little girl. I am so thankful he noticed her but I never want to here him say my name like that again. I knew just by the sound that something was seriously wrong. We love Biscuit and would have been crushed if anything happened to her. So glad Ryan was there at the right time and noticed. Made sure to tell him a bunch of times that he was a superhero. (now he needs a super suit!)
So until August 14th have a great week my friends! I will see you when I get back..I plan to do a vacation post because with us it’s always an adventure! two words…Bat Story! 😉
