This Week in Our New Normal - Week 945 (or maybe 6)

 It's Sunday Post time!  This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.


This was not the best of weeks.  Nothing particularly bad happened just long days at the hospital.  He's feeling really well and more like himself then he has since the diagnosis at the end of June. I'm feeling exhausted.  I think the last month or so has finally caught up with me.  We've been in a don't stop mode since he was diagnosed.  If you stop you think and thinking isn't the best thing to do right now.  It's better to just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

We've been the okay to have close family visit with precautions and are so excited to see family. From a distance with masks on of course. 

Currently:  

ReadingMissing, Presumed by Susie Steiner and The Falcon Always Wings Twice by Donna Andrews

Listening:  Look Both Ways by Carol J. Perry

What are you reading this week?  Have a lovely week!

  1. Glad that you are able to have family visit. I would imagine that will be nice for support. And I can only imagine how tired you must be. Sending lots of supportive thoughts your way- hang in there! Glad Will is feeling well.

    Missing Presumed looks like a good one!

  2. Take care of yourself, it is true it is all most likely catching up on you. It takes its toll something like this. Cheering you all on from afar. Good to have family even from a distance.

  3. I think I'm not surprised that you've hit an extra-tired week. You've been pushing and going non-stop for a long time now. Glad you got to see family and I'm sure that was wonderful. Yes, take good care of yourself and give a little grace to yourself in getting rest and relaxing. I continue to keep all of your in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. That's a good book and I am happy to send you some more if you'd like :-) So good to hear you will be able to have family visits. I'm hugging you from Florida (without our yucky germs!), my friend. I admire the way you and your family are handling all of this - so stressful. Happy to know your son is feeling better now.
