What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
Well, these last few weeks have been a rollercoaster for me. I know I haven’t been posting a lot but that is because I have a ton going on. And the next three upcoming weeks are going to be just as busy.
The kids are doing fine. They all had dentist appointments a couple of weeks ago. Miss B and Miss R have cavities. Miss R also has to go in for cleanings every three months instead of every six months. The reason: Her gums are growing over her braces. Of course, insurance only covers the every 6 months visits. The other visits are being paid out of pocket. Mr. Z had no cavities and has taken delight in rubbing them in his sisters’ faces.
Miss B is taking her actual driving lessons this week. They were supposed to be 4-8, 4-8, and 8-12. But, I got a text yesterday cancelling her 4-8 (it rescheduled for Sunday 1-5) and this morning, I got a text asking if we could move her lesson to 12-4. She’s super nervous but I told her just to listen to the instructor and pay attention.
I know I have mentioned taking Jesper in. What I haven’t mentioned is that we also took his brother in (and we’rekeeping him). Jesper is a tuxedo and he’s going to be a big boy (huge paws and he’s already 4.4 pounds at 10 weeksold). His brother, who we named Loki, is a long-haired dark grey tabby, who is also going to be a big boy (bigger pawsthan Jesper and 3.8 pounds at 10 weeks old). His mom left him under our house for 5 days. I was afraid he was going to get eaten (coyotes, owls, snakes, and hawks are huge here). So, we ended up trapping him under the house. He’s a little timid (the kids scare him but he loves BK and me). They both had a vet visit on Tuesday and they are 100% healthy. No fleas and most importantly, no worms. They had their first kitten shots and go back in 3 weeks.
Their mom is still around. She showed up on Friday (we trapped Loki on Thursday) and hasn’t left our back deck. I was lost with what to do with her until I talked to my vet. Now, I am working with a local dog rescue (go figure….lol). They have a rescue who will pay for her spay and first vet visit. After she recovers, she’s going up to New Jersey to find a home. I should have mentioned that I believe that she is a Lynx Point Siamese that someone dumped (along with the kittens)…smh. She is one of the friendliest cats that I have ever met and she is gorgeous. I have a friend who will be keeping her in the house until the transport can take her up to New Jersey.
So, that’s what I have been doing these past weeks and why I haven’t been posting my daily stuff. Hopefully, once I get Mama (that’s what I call her) taken care of, I can relax a bit and post more.
I have been reading a ton, despite being busy. I am averaging finishing 4-5 books a week. Plus, I am reading paperbacks (which I have to add to my Goodreads Currently Reading). I am reading Siege and Storm (BK bought the entire series and the Six of Crows series) and The Night She Disappeared (won that in a giveaway).
I haven’t done anything with the blog besides changing my theme. I do plan on editing past posts but I think I am going to do that after my kids go back to school (August 23rd!!)
Right now, it is all about the Olympics. BK and I watch it at night from 8pm to about 930/10pm and I watch a recap in the morning. Before the Olympics, we were watching Westworld and I started watching Cold Case when BK traveled.
I love to read. My favorite genres are women's fiction, romance, psychological thrillers, fantasy, young adult, steampunk, dystopian, LGBTQIA, and paranormal. I am also a busy mom of 3 kids and 5 cats
