I managed to post a few things this week, only because of scheduled posts. It was a pleasant surprise to see my reviews of Gold, The Wrath and the Dawn, and Kitchens of the Great Midwest show up, since I had forgotten about writing and scheduling them!
What have I been reading lately? Well, I read Drew Barrymore's Wildflower while sitting up with a feverish kid, and then read Felicity and 2 A.M. at the Cat's Pajamas.
My plan for this week is to read The Hours Count, historical fiction about a neighbor to the Rosenbergs, and Making It Home.
What are you reading this week?
Yes that definitely counts as a new level when that happens. At least you can joe about it ha ha. Hope everyone feels better this week!!ReplyDelete
You have to joke about it, right? Parenting is a crazy gig!Delete
Oh gosh. Your sick story reminds me of the story I am reading where 5 year old twins throw up in the car! Hope you are all better soon.ReplyDelete
It's not for the faint of heart or stomach, that's for sure. Thank you!! :)Delete
When my son was two, he contracted a stomach bug (that we subsequently all got) and threw up all over me. I think it's a parenting badge, or something. I hope everyone is feeling better, and your week improves!ReplyDelete
Thank you. It can only get better, right??Delete
Oh no, all that sickness sounds terrible! I hope everyone starts to feel better soon and you end up with a great reading week.ReplyDelete
I hope the kids are all better soon :-( how miserable is that for everyone. I really like Drew B, wonder if I would enjoy the book.ReplyDelete
Thanks Marce! I am a big fan too. I thought it was ok, but I'm not sure her speaking style translates that well to writing.Delete
Feel better soon! And I hope you enjoy your books this week.ReplyDelete
My It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.
Thank you, Majanka!Delete
Sick kids are the ultimate test, aren't they? I'll never forget the time when I had a toddler and an infant, and the toddler and I were both sick, but we spread out a big blanket on the floor so the infant could crawl around. I was lucky the baby didn't get sick!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week; I loved Wildflower. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
That is lucky! It seems like the harder you try to keep them apart, the more often they share things back and forth.Delete
Hope the little ones bounce back soon! I have grown children now...who don't get sick in front of me anymore :) but I still have cats and dogs who do, sigh...ReplyDelete
Wildflower looks like just a fun read and I do love Mary Oliver poems, having discovered her last year. Here's to a better week!
Haha...will I miss the sick kids or not so much?Delete
Mary Oliver writes such beautiful poems. Which collections have you read?
Oh gosh, it sounds like you've had quite the week, Lindsey! I hope this week improves, and your two children feel better soon!!ReplyDelete
Reading With Jade
Thank you, Jade.Delete
I hope everyone is better soon.ReplyDelete
Looks like some good books for you.
The Hours Count looks good to me.
My It's Monday, What Are You Reading
Thanks Elizabeth! It was definitely an interesting read.Delete
I do hope your kids feel better soon - winter must be unforgiving where you are at the moment. Felicity was my first book read in 2016 - I just finished reading A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver as well - both exquisite books.ReplyDelete
What a lovely way to start off 2016! Oliver writes such great poems.Delete
Vomit down the back? I think you get best mom bragging rights forever. Hope everyone's feeling better!ReplyDelete
Haha, thank you!Delete
Haha, I'm so impressed that you posted your reviews enough in advance for them to surprise you when they showed up! I hope both of your kids feel better at the same time soon :)ReplyDelete
It will probably never happen again...haha.Delete
