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

Teaser Tuesdays -- Jan 19, 2010



Teaser Tuesdays

Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.


Jack knew this much about the letters because he paid a detective to follow his wife. The detective had reported no meetings, phone calls or email; no suspicious activity at all, except the letters. The detective did not report that Edie had taken to staring at him as she burned the letters, then grinding the ashes into the pavement with her shoe. Once she'd given him the Nazi salute. He had begun to dread following her.

~ Pg. 5, Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger.

Michelle, Amy, Ash, Diane, thanks! :)

Lisa, I agree!

MarceJ, sorry you wouldn't read another by her, I did like TTTW, but I'll reserve my judgment for this one.

Kaye, I agree, this book starts off well.

Susan, I hope to enjoy it too, though so far I am yet to see any of the TTTW's magic

I've wanted to read Her Fearful Symmetry for so long! I bought it, but I haven't opened it yet due to my commitments to reviews I've already made. Soon, though, I hope. I was crazy about The Time Traveler's Wife.
Athira said…
dolcebelleza, I was crazy about TTTW too, and for that reason I am reading this, in spite of the not-so-good comments. I really want to see how I'll find it.
