Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

The Sunday Salon -- Jan 24, 2010

Phew!! I'm only just getting to blog and browse online. It's been so hectic, I'm glad today is over! Of course, half of my "hectic" day went into reading. *wink* But that's reasonable! Is what I would say!

I got some good reading done last week, having read Daddy-Long-Legs and Her Fearful Symmetry. I LOVED both!! Her Fearful Symmetry is not at all like The Time Traveler's Wife, but it was a good book in its own right. Daddy-Long-Legs was a wonderful classic! Thanks to Aarti for recommending it!

I was planning to write both reviews out by tonight, but somehow that doesn't look like it will happen.

The disappointing news this week was that the audio book copy of Say you're one of them that I was listening to, contained only the 3 short stories! :-( Luckily, I picked this book last week from the library, so that's real lucky. I was expecting it to be one of those 14-day books, but it's not!

I'm still reading The Hobbit, as part of the LOTR Readalong. I'm in no particular hurry to finish it as Bilbo's adventures are definitely very engrossing to read! Next on my plate are City of Bones (finally I'll be starting on the Mortal Instruments series) and the remaining two novellas of Say you're one of them.

I also wanted to mention this award I got today from J.Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog. I'm guessing you are subscribed to her blog. If not, you should follow! She has an awesome blog out there, definitely worthy of the Your Blog is soooooo Kewl! award!!



I'm passing this on to a few really kewl blogs I came across lately!
  1. A Bookish Way of Life
  2. Hotchpot Cafe
  3. Tales of Whimsy...
  4. Tea Time with Marce
Back to school again tomorrow. ::groan:: I sure don't expect to get much reading done before the next Sunday Salon post. Probably just 1 more book, in addition to the two books that I am half-way through.

Read other Sunday Salon posts.
