OFF THE BLOG…

This week has been an unexpected week for my family. My step-daughter has come back to live with us after 3 years. This has been a complete shock for everyone, so this week has been turned upside down a bit. We are happy to have her home, but it has been a swirl of emotions. With that being said, most of my week has been taken up by moving things around and finding out who was going to sleep where.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. We spent it sitting on hard metal benches watching our children during there Annual Cadet Review. I’m proud that they are in something they enjoy, but for us parents, it is not very exciting until your kid’s name gets called.

Not the best picture…but the poor kids stand in one spot for hours. I still try to figure out what is fun about it. Must be all the camping trips.

  1. Oh, what an interesting week for you. Having an unexpected move-in is a familiar theme for me, from the years when my kids were grown, but not quite ready…we called it the revolving door, as they were in and out.

    Rearranging things can be fun….but challenging. Enjoy your time, and also your reading. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Exciting and emotional week for sure! I’m sure you guys are happy to have your step-daughter home though. How did you enjoy These Vicious Masks? It looks like it would be amazing 🙂 Hope you have a great week and enjoy your new reads!

  3. Hope all goes well with the changes! I imagine it can be challenging but rewarding to have someone move back in. Best of luck and hope you get some reading time this week. 🙂

    That Game of Thrones readalong looks fun…

  4. Ooh what a busy week at home, hope things get settled in quickly with your step daughter living there now. Great job batch writing. I sometimes do that on weekends – get it all done for a few weeks out, and then take a step back.

  5. I hope your step-daughter settles in well and that things return to some semblance of normal for you all soon. I’ve never had to sit through an Annual Cadet Review, but I can imagine. Haha! What a proud moment for your children, even if not the most fun event to sit through.

    These Vicious Masks is one I’ve had my eye on. I’ll be curious to know what you thought of it when you post your review. I need to figure out where I left off with Supernatural. I got pretty far into the series, but then time got away from me. I would like to get back into it at some point.

    I hope you have a great week!
