Not much to say about this week. I spent a lot of it recovering from the fatigue of pneumonia, and I’m getting better every day. The kids, unfortunately, got a lot of TV time as a result, but I got a lot of reading done, so…..I added a lot more books to the pile of “currently reading,” probably because I have been feeling so stir crazy and wanted some control over my life while stuck in bed.
We had a serious talk with M and he said that he wanted to go to brick and mortar school after all. I’m glad that was his decision, as he really needs to develop his socialization skills, and the choice gave him empowerment in a time when he feels very helpless about what’s going on in his life.
Next week, I already have two posts scheduled: Chapters 2 and 3 of How to Read the Bible, and I hope to finally finish Don Quixote and review that as well.
Yeah, that’s a lot of books, but I get restless when I’m sitting in bed, and I have a short attention span, lol.
I’m also working through a few of the Great Courses, which is how I chose some of the books I’m reading:
In my own twisted way, I feel that these courses, and my reading of the Bible, all fit in together quite well. But like I said, I’m getting a bit stir-crazy with all the bed-rest.
I’ve always wanted to learn a little more about philosophy, and as soon as I finish this course, I will start the Eastern Philosophy course. The Coppleston books were borrowed from my dad, as they are rather expensive.
I plan to spend a lot of this weekend reading, and hopefully next week I will be up and about a little more. At least enough to wash the dishes and pay my bills.
