LOL - this is pretty much how I spent my weekend - napping.
Well, the second week of work/school is over. It was actually the first full week of work, the first week was only a two day week. I like starting off with only two days, it's not such a shock to the system.
My grandson, who spends the weekends with us since his daddy lives with us - told me last Saturday: "oh no, Gramma! I forgot to go to school today!".
I explained how school goes from Monday to Friday, and that he and his teacher gets two days off every week. Boy was he relieved. ;)
My granddaughter now - my son in law said that one day my daughter came home with a very worried look on her face. Apparently Liliana had told her that first grade was very hard. So of course, my daughter started worrying that Liliana was having a hard time with the classwork. When her daddy talked to her, he asked her what was so hard about it. "It's very hard to find time to play with all my friends. They all want me to play with them at the same time, but they don't all want to play with each other."
That's tough - and at the same time it was a relief that it wasn't the school work that was hard, but the social juggling.
Be glad you have friend, little one - be glad.
It's Book Time...
Hosted by Sheila of Book Journey, this is the meme where we get together and see what everyone has been reading - and where we tend to add to our wish lists....
Anyway - here's the thing...I didn't get a whole lot of reading done. Work, grandkids, tired, the dog, you name it. It all came first....and then of course the stupid farmville 2, which I've become obsessed with. Used to be Castleville, but now whenever I try to play it, the game crashes - every three minutes. So Farmville 2.
The one novel I managed to finish reading was...
Life on the Preservation
A very strange and interesting SciFi novel.
Inside this dome, people are reliving October 5, 2013 over and over.....or are they?
Outside the dome, people are dying a slow death by disease. Sounds like a depressing novel, doesn't it? But it isn't as depressing as it sounds, it was interesting and different.
I am still reading
Velva Jean Learns to Drive
about a young girl growing up in the mountains in the 1930 and 1940's. It's interesting, and told in first person from the pov of first the young girl, and then the young woman as she grows.
I have so many other books that I've started through out the year, that when I finish Velva Jean, I'm going to try to focus on one of them. It's just that sometimes you're in the mood for a specific writing style, and sometimes you're not. My mind cannot seem to settle on anything lately - I blame it on my age, or aging....or that period of peri-menopause. sometimes I just want to close my eyes and listen to music, only I don't have a good music system in my house.... I need some speakers. Some good ones, some that make my ears bleed and my chest pound! Know what I mean? I want to FEEL the music. :)
