Not Much Going On…

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…

Patty

    Quiet and ordinary are good! We’re really busy right now, but it’s mostly a good busy.

    I’m reading a non-fiction book about generic drugs so my reading week is disturbing too.

    This sounds like a bad mix of books… I’m sure there must be something a little lighter and more fun in your stack? Quiet and ordinary is definitely under-rated. Sending good vibes for Lucy.

    I lost my cat Ignatius a few months ago, then his wife Snezhana seems to have lost their babies, and now her sister Hilbert brought as a little kitten that looks just like late Ignatius and his grandmother Grozdana The Great, the founder of the dynasty! It seems he sired kids with both sisters before leaving us. Life goes on it seems.

    Hope your reading isn’t too stressful! 🙂 Books can have that effect, for sure.

    As others have said, quiet and ordinary is good. I like quiet and ordinary!

    I love quiet and ordinary. Wish I had more of it.

    I know Lucy is worrying you but she certainly doesn’t want that.

    I haven’t been able to read too much because I have been helping my daughter with these summer classes. College classes for her are no joke and there is just so much reading and she is not a reader.
