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

Books on my nightstand
I had planned to do a readathon this weekend, but that didn't pan out, because I spent most of my time with friends. But I am in the middle of three books right now.

Crazy by Han Nolan: This book is making for interesting reading. The boy protagonist has a bunch of virtual friends, who do actual communications with him. At some point, it isn't hard to believe they exist and become lost in that world. Didn't we all have imaginary friends at some point in our lives?
The Passage by Justin Cronin: This one sure is going exciting. I am not too far into the book, but I have a feeling that I will like this one!
Blankets by Craig Thompson: I surely have to exclaim WOW here! I was initially pensive about reading this one, knowing that it is serious. But one minute into the book, and I couldn't put it down. It was engaging! It IS engaging!

The Passage was amazing, but very long. I actually had to red it in bites. Enjoy!
The Passage and Still Missing are on my wish list!


Have a great reading week ahead!

I'm curious about Blankets...it piqued my interest.

I'm anxious to read The Passage.
I am in part 3 of the audio of The Passage and I am finally starting to put it all together. Glad to hear you are enjoying it too.
