#SundayPost: Busy Week!

Posted July 19, 2020 in Roundup Tags:

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Post. This feature is brought to you by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, so swing by after you are done here and get the full list of participants!

Who knows! I have nothing scheduled this week. I am hoping to get through a few backlist books though.

Books releasing this week:

Ok, another week with nothing. Now I’m starting to get FOMO….

First off, happy birthday to my dad! His birthday was Friday. I drove up on Thursday and had lunch with him.

This week was pretty busy! I had an appointment with my audiologist on Wednesday (to get the other hearing aids reordered-now I have to wait 2 weeks). Then Thursday I went up to see my dad. Friday, a former coworker had a small get together for me to say goodbye! We sat outside and stayed socially distant. When we went indoors for food or anything, we put on a mask. As teachers, we are really aware and cautious. But I just LOVED seeing everyone and we chatted and snacked for over 5 hours!

Saturday we were suppose to go to the apple store because my husband’s phone broke again. But, he changed his mind and said it seemed to be working okay. Instead we lounged around the house and tried out the new grill. So far, loving the new grill. But, it’s also been over 90 degrees every day and even stepping outside is miserable. Also, our house faces east, so in the afternoon and evening, our deck is getting 100% sun and its scorching. There is no shade around the house/deck and it just bakes all afternoon. Icky.

I’m trying not to stress about COVID-19 and back to school. Its out of my sphere of control and I need to focus on what I can control-my decisions and choices. It’s difficult because I feel so passionately about the virus and the decisions made, but its causing anxiety attacks far too often. Also, it has made me really disappointed in some of my oldest friends who seem to take high offense to being told to wear a mask. I’m super uncomfortable with how angry they are about wearing a mask.

So, that was my week! This week I have some bloodwork on Monday, lunch with friends on Wednesday, and hopefully my hearing aids will come in sometime this week (fingers crossed)!

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. That’s so sweet that they had a little farewell for you. It’s nice to be loved. It’s hard to accept that we cannot control some things, but hopefully your local leadership will make the right choices for your state/city/town. Personally, I feel like we should stay home until we can get a vaccine, but then all the vaccination drama will start. I hate needles and have never gotten a flu shot, but even I will suck it up and get the corona vaccine.

  2. Happy belated Birthday to your dad!! And you can’t indeed have control over the situation just do your best to protect yourself and act smartly like you do Samantha!

  3. You have a lot going on these weeks. I’m glad to see you got some family and friend time. I don’t understand people who won’t do things to protect everyone and get this beat back. Sadly, they don’t take it seriously until someone they knows gets very sick or dies. With no government plan except everyone get back to work and school, it’s going to get a lot worse. Have a lovely week! Stay safe and be kind.

  4. Glad you were able to have a reasonably social week – and congratulations to your Dad on his birthday:)). As for people getting grumpy about wearing masks – I simply cannot wrap my head around that one. No one LIKES wearing the wretched things, but they have been proven to cut down the spread of the disease in areas where we cannot get away from each other – shopping in a supermarket for instance. So why not just get over it – and wear them??? Sorry – rant over. I think you’re right. You cannot change the situation regarding school – just focus on what you can do to keep the situation as safe as possible, which was how we got through the whole thing when my husband was working throughout the height of the pandemic when it was hitting us hard through April, here in the UK. Take care and have a good week.

  5. I am happy that you were able to get that farewell!!! Hearing you say that about the way your house faces…makes me realize how much I do need to make sure when I own a home to make sure it doesn’t face the sun in the evening lol and to make dang sure I have a nice porch ….because I love doing that in the evenings especially in the summertime.

  6. They’re not doing in class learning here in California. With our rising numbers they’ve shut a bunch of things back down. Yeah, I don’t get people with the aversion to wearing masks. It’s strange when I run into someone I know that has issues with it. To me if they do then they should just stay and home and do online shopping and food delivery instead of making their “right” to not wear a mask a danger to others. Sounds like a patio cover would be a good investment for you, or maybe a pool umbrella? Especially if your hubby enjoys using the outdoor grill. Enjoy your summer nights, Samantha! 🙂

    • The only time I was lucky enough to visit London was during an insane heat wave. It was heat like we have here in the States except, England doesn’t have the same love affair with air conditioners that Americans do. It was ROUGH.

  7. Happy Belated Birthday to your Dad, Sam! And that is super sweet that they had a farewell get together for you and I’m glad that you guys practiced safe social distancing. It baffles me that so many people are pissed that they have to wear a mask. Like all of my doctors and the nurses that I talk to are all begging us to wear masks when we’re out in public so why wouldn’t I listen to them? I listen to them about everything else but they don’t know what they’re talking about with this? SMH. Some people man…

    Anyway, I’m glad to see that you’re doing well and I hope your Dad’s phone really works. I almost had to replace my Dad’s iPhone too and I was not happy with him. Haha, but that’s because he left his phone at the golf course. Grrr.

    Have a great week, Sam!

  8. Glad you were able to do a bit of (safe) socializing. That had to be fun. It’s been too hot to grill here in the late afternoon/evenings. Our grill is under cover on the back patio/lanai but even so, it’s just miserable out there. The refusal to wear masks continues to confound me. Even if you don’t think it helps, even if you think it’s not necessary… what does it hurt? Why would you not do it just to accommodate those around you who *are* concerned? It boggles my mind.

  9. It’s lovely that you were able to have a little bit of a goodbye shindig with your work friends! It must have been so strange to finish out your job under covid/lockdown restrictions… I had a socially distance get together with some friends at the weekend and it’s so good for the soul.

    The heat sounds horrible! I often think it’s too hot here then I see the temps you guys are dealing with and am grateful, lol.
