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

Kicking off the Fall Catch-Up Readathon


Just got back at home, and I'm itching to read for a change. During this time, I usually pick my laptop and spend hours browsing, and before I know it, *chime, chime*, it's time to sleep! I already have my posts for tomorrow ready. So the only distraction I'm going to have today and the rest of this week is my busy Google Reader, which is fine by me. I need a distraction anyways.

If you want to join in, you can still do, as this runs all week. Just go to The True Book Addict here to sign up or here to put up your starting post. Since I'll be getting just around 4 hours each day, I'm not going to get too ambitious. I'll just read what suits me. I'm going to pick The Passage by Justin Cronin and alternate it with Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser. Some time this week, I'll probably start Ulysses by James Joyce and Moloka'i by Alan Brennert. So there!

I'm always impressed with everyone that is able to do these readathons! Good luck!!
Glad you're joining us! I have The Passage, but haven't had time to reading it yet so I loaned it to my dad. I'm keeping a chunkster on the sidelines myself, Under the Dome, just in case...to break up the monotony. Hope you have fun reading this week!

Coffee and a Book Chick, I usually don't do readathons, because I can't mess up my sleep. But this time I'm going in because 1. I don't have to NOT sleep, and 2. I need to spruce up my reading.

Michelle, Under the Dome is another chunkster I need to read, umm, maybe next year?
