Is it ok if life is just ordinary? I think so! I just want our lives to run smoothly for as long as possible. If something unusual happens Den and I can get really excitable. When my 21 year old Lucy seems to run into things…I worry. When she sits in the center of our room…I try not to freak out. If she doesn’t eat her breakfast…we watch her for hours or try another food. I guess I just want her to be at peace until her time comes. Can you ever prepare yourself for the death of a beloved pet? If things seem off even sweet Roxie seems to watch Lucy closely. We are all on edge until our normal envelopes us again. We breathe a big sigh and pray for just a tiny bit more of our togetherness. Sigh!
I am still reading this book. But it makes me nervous. Something bad is going to happen to this big lovely Irish family! Each chapter is filled with the thought that something awful is about to happen. I literally have to stop after each chapter just to get a grip! The writing is lovely. The characters…other than the really bad guys…delightful! But…the secrets…OMG.
I actually started this one thinking it would be a fun escape from Jane Street. But I was wrong. It’s so sad and now I can’t stop reading it, either!
I hope you are having a happier reading week than I am in store for…
