Sunday Update: Week 1

Mom and DadUntil recently, I’ve been living with my parents – helping them when they needed it. But now it’s time to move on: I’ve moved in with my fiancé and am slowing transferring my books from their house to his. This week was very productive in working out some details in how my sister and I will keep my parents safe and happy now that they are living alone. It was a good week for getting stuff done. It was also a good week for my step-children-to-be, who have been in Disney World for the week – though my heart goes out to their mom who must be exhausted!

This week I completed:


I acquired no new books.

I am currently reading:

Currently Reading

I’m about 500 pages into the Storm of Swords tome, and will probably take another palate-cleansing break at about page 750. I just started No One Cares About Crazy People as my general nonfiction and Freeing Your Child From Anxiety as my adulting book. I also just started listening to The Shadow Land for my real-life book club, and am studying Don Quixote in my Well Educated Mind project.

  1. I’m reading Don Quixote too with a readalong group on Facebook. If you want to join us, the name of the group is Tilting at Windmills. I could invite you. Just drop me an e-mail…if not, no problem. I still will be interested in hearing your thoughts.

      1. The group is going until March 17, about 200 pages per week, I think. I’ll invite you to the group; you can join and see the reading schedule in the pinned post at the top. In your e-mail, if you just let me know how I can find you on Facebook, I can invite you to the group.


  2. Aw cute pics. 🙂 And Storm of swords- yes that book is huge! Breaks are definitely a good thing! 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying it, it’s probably my favorite of the series, or close.


    1. I AM enjoying it. Long books are just difficult for me and George R. R. Martin’s writing can be so intense that I need to clear my mind with something fluffy every once in a while. I won’t say which is my favorite yet, until I’ve finished reading the ones that are published. 🙂


  3. OH, MY GOD, that baby is so cute. Is that your daughter? Who is she? I’m glad you’ve had a productive week, and I love your book haul! Have a great week!


    1. I have NOT read any of his other books, though there was a lot of discussion comparing this book to Lost City of Z at our book club this Sunday. I want to read Z, though who knows when I’ll find the time. So many books, so little time.
