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 & Real Life:
So as most of you know at the moment I have 3 Hermit Crabs. Two in one cage, Spiderman and Leonardo, and one in his own cage Meanie. Meanie at the moment is in my son’s room keeping him company. The other day I noticed him not in his cereal box house that I made him so I was a little concerned that something might be wrong with him. A few weeks ago I thought we were going to lose Leonardo since two of his legs fell off but apparently that happens and they will grow back, Who knew! ANYWAY, I went to check on Meanie on Wednesday and when I looked in the cage he had fallen out of his shell and was all dried up and gross. So with a heavy heart I walked into the living room and announced that Meanie had in fact passed away. My daughter went HYSTERICAL! I took the cage out in the hallway so they didn’t have to see him and figured I would clean the cage out after dinner. BTW it’s cold in the hallway but he’s dead so he wont feel it. My daughter cried all through dinner. After dinner I went into the hall to clean out the cage and put him in a plastic bag so my husband could “bury” him. I scooped up the icky dead crab and pushed it in the bag and saw a bit of him still stuck to the shell. So with my hand in the bag I tried to pull it off, it wouldn’t come off the shell. I really didn’t want to touch it with my hand so I turned the shell over to give it a good pull…THE LITTLE SHIT MOLTED and was tucked in the shell. GOSH, DAMN IT, I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD! I then took the entire cage back in the house and announced to the family that Meanie was in fact not dead but alive and molting. I made my daughter CRY!!!! These fucking things are going to kill me! So I now had him in the cold hallway for like an hour, which I was informed by my son was probably not a good thing to do, so I had to get him warmed up. I put him back in his little cereal box and covered the cage with dish towels to keep it dark and hopefully warm until his new outer shell hardens and he can safely move around. It will take a couple of days before he comes out to eat and drink but good gravy these thinks are killing me. My daughter was PISSED at me for making her cry. This would be the second time I thought one of these damn things died and they only molted. Thank god I’m not a doctor, the morgue would be fulled with very alive people.
I had one sick little boy this week, it started last weekend and sadly he missed the shitty breakfast with Santa. I took off of work on Monday to stay home with him and took him to the doctor. He had an ear Infection in his left ear, Sinusitis, Laryngitis and wheezing in his chest. I took him back to the doctor on Friday and he was cleared but still need to take the meds since it’s not 100% gone just enough to make him feel like himself. I never had him this sick and to the point that he barely moved all day. I have my fingers crossed the rest of us are going to be ok, I Lysoled the CRAP out of this house so maybe we will be ok and the house smells lovely.
My Christmas madness started on Friday, the next couple of days I will be in operation get shit done mode. I have a TON, I mean a TON, of stuff to do and get ready. I wasn’t really feeling very Christmas-y this last couple of weeks but for some reason on Saturday it hit me and I am feeling all the magic Christmas brings. I am so excited to see the kids on Christmas morning and I can’t wait to spend time with my family. I might have a ton to do but I am really excited about it all!
So the last few weeks I have been a VERY good girl when it comes to getting books so this week I really don’t feel bad about how many I grabbed since I felt like I deserved it for being such a good girl 😉 Plus my slump is over, I am extremely happy I got my reading groove back!
