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

A birthday week | Weekly Snapshot

Yikes, sorry about the two-week absence! Both life and work happened, and with that, my reading and blogging disappeared.


We've had a lot going on during the past two weeks. My work got steadily busier over last two weeks and it looks like that will continue for a bit more. And to top it off, both kids got sick last week. It started with the boy getting an ear infection and then the girl got a cold and cough. It's been brutal because it feels like my daughter got much sicker than usual that I actually worried if this might be the dreaded C. Thankfully she tested negative and hopefully she will soon be freed from that nagging cough she still has. 

Needless to say, my brain was shot for much of these two weeks and I haven't been able to read much of anything, whether books or blogs. Sorry everyone - I'm hoping to find some time this week to visit your blogs.

After all those worries, we had a nice fun last night - we had a few of our neighbors, all vaccinated, over for a little get-together - it was a combination of giving a farewell to one family who are moving to a new town and a birthday party for our boy who turned three this week! I was a little disappointed we had so much sickness during a birthday week, but oh well, both kids had fun.

This upcoming week is the last week of school for both of them. From next week onwards through the summer, we'll be doing some daycare and some summer camp. Plus we have our island vacation coming up soon too. 


There's only one book I'm reading and it's The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz - I'm late finishing this in time for its release but I'm enjoying it a lot and do want to share my thoughts. 

I'm not sure what I'll read after this one but I'm going to follow my mood for a while. I'm still pretty tired after the past two weeks.

How are you doing? I hope you have some fun things going.
