Weekly Recap #71: Week of 9/16-9/22


It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

Well, it has been a pretty difficult week here.  My grandmother passed away on Saturday after nearly a week in hospice care.  Thankfully I was able to make the trip home this week to see her one last time, but it’s still sad to think that she’s no longer with us.

It was also a bit awkward because she died on my son’s birthday.  At first we were going to postpone his party, but I finally decided that we could all use the distraction, so as I’m sitting here typing, I have 4 pre-teen boys running around my house acting like lunatics.  Their silliness is infectious, so I’m glad we decided to go ahead and have them over.

Needless to say though, I haven’t gotten much reading or blogging done this week.  I had some pre-scheduled posts that went up last week, but it will probably be pretty quiet here until after the funeral.  I will get back on a regular schedule as far as posting and visiting as soon as I feel up to it.

Thanks for your understanding and I hope everyone else has a great week.

    ((HUGS)) So sorry to hear about your grandmother, but how lucky you were to have her in your life so long, and that your son had the privilege of meeting his great-grandmother. I have a hold for Wildcard right now. I am going to try the audio, because I think I could do that book on audio. I heard chapter 31 is really emotional, and I need to read it myself.

      Thanks, yes we were very fortunate to have her as long as we did. She was a sweet lady so I’m glad my son got to know her.

      Hope we both enjoy Wildcard!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your grandma Suzanne! I actually just got back from the hospital visiting my gma. It’s so hard to see these strong women suffer.

    I started listening to Sadie a few weeks ago but I wasn’t in the right mood. I hope to get to it sooner than later.

      Thank you and yes, it really is hard to see them suffer. I’m glad that I was able to make it to the nursing home and see her one last time, but at the same time, I just hated seeing her that way.

    Dear Suzanne, I’m so sorry for your loss, and know it’s so rough for your family. I’m keeping you guys in prayer. I remember when my son used to have his friends over, and they used to eat everything in the house or stay up until the wee hours of the morning talking about and practicing football plays. (lol) Nothing like all that noise to keep your mind off of stuff for sure. I did make it through because he’s 35 now.(lol) Get back into the blogging thing when you feel like it. My parents and grandparents are all deceased, and the pain eases in time, but those precious memories stay with us forever. Hang in There and sending some cyber hugs your way. RO
