The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
This past week we announced the details for COYER Summer Vacation. It’s going to be a blast – check it out and sign up here. We’ve relaxed the rules for Summer Vacation so pretty much anyone will be able to participate at their own level.
This has been yet another busy week at home too. I’ve been working on editing my book and one of my beta readers has sent their feedback, so I’ll be working on that this upcoming week. My mother in-law also came into town on Thursday and she’s staying with us for a few days – she’ll probably be bouncing around between all the kids. I think she’s great, but there is always a certain amount of stress when family comes to visit. But the big event this week I’m actually in the middle of as I write this and is the reason I will be very delayed in comments until Monday (more delayed than usual). My mom discovered her birth father’s family a couple years ago through Ancestry.com. It was unfortunately after he had passed away, but she’s been talking to her half-siblings. This weekend she’s meeting one of them in person for the first time. My brother and I came along for support – we drove a few hours down to Round Rock, TX where they are visiting their son. So we’re meeting him and his family with her. A bit stressful and kind of cool. I’m happy for my mom to have this opportunity to connect with her family – I know she’s always felt a bit of an emptiness from not knowing her father. It’s a bit strange for me, because I never did feel that emptiness. To me, her stepfather has always been my grandfather, her stepbrothers have been my uncles. But I do know I’m glad that my brother and I came with her – she’s an emotional wreck. They’re sharing stories about when her father left her family and went to his new family and she’s learning about all those years she missed. So you can imagine the emotional roller coaster she’s on.
Anyway – we come back from this trip Sunday evening (today) and then I’ll be back with my mother-in-law for the week. So I’ll have another busy week. That’s it for me – y’all have a great week!!
