The two week update | Weekly Snapshot

Oh yikes, this once-in-two-week blogging routine better not be a habit. I hope it's just an indication of how busy July can get with planning for a birthday and doing different summer things. Life The girl had her birthday party today with friends from school and she had a fun day! It was nice seeing the kids have fun outside of school and take over the bouncy event place like they knew every corner of it. I was grateful for everyone who were brave enough to come to a party despite recent rises in case count. Thankfully most or all of us were vaccinated so that made the decision-making easier. Now that the party is behind me, I have a ton of things to get back to. I am hoping for a quieter week ahead and a chance to catch up on a few things. Reading I honestly haven't read much in the last two weeks. Well, at least not prose. Instead, I've been reading Marvel Comics. Don't ask. So far, I've read Thor: Son of Asgard and Wolverine's Origin stories. Loved all of th

Wrapping up January | Weekly Snapshot

Last week went much better than I dared hope it would be. I managed to catch some parts of the Presidential Inauguration and the evening program, and just the realization that the administration is really, truly, definitively changing has just sunk in, I think. I haven't spent more than about 5 minutes each day on the news (didn't feel the need to) and I hope to keep it that way for as long as possible.



Life

Yep, another busy work week. I know I hoped for a lighter work week, but who am I kidding. Work has been a different kind of busy each week this whole month and it will be nothing different this coming week. I just hope to figure out how to get my lunch hour freed up and use it to recharge. Not much happened in life this week - kids are loving being back at school, and I am loving my uninterrupted time, something that was only a luxury for much of last year. 


Reading

Even if life was busy this week, I did read quite a bit. I'm slowly reading So You Want To Talk About Race but I had started and finished All Systems Red by Martha Wells this week. It didn't quite live up to its hype but I did like it enough to want to continue with the series.



Just yesterday, I started reading Syed Masood's The Bad Muslim Discount (to be published on Feb 2). I'm not sure what to expect yet but so far, I am enjoying it tremendously. 


Watching

After months of watching Star Trek TNG and then Discovery, this week has been very quiet in TV for me. That first evening felt very weird but I survived. Though last evening, I started watching DS9. I may be resuming that same routine again with this show but the quiet week did feel good. Friday night, we watched Ratatouille with the kids and I had forgotten how lovely this movie was.

Is it just me or does it feel like January is whizzing by?
