Last week was rough. One of my daughter’s volleyball teammates lost her father in the Las Vegas shooting. Her brother was also shot, but is stable. A few years prior, she lost her mother so this particular loss is especially difficult. If you feel at all compelled to give a few dollars, you can find the GoFundMe here.
According to the news reports, there are seven others from our town who were shot as well. This hits very close to home.
We are sitting here watching the news and it amazes me how quickly we move from one topic to another these days. Such a tragedy and the news has already moved on.
This week should be a little less busy. I have a couple of appointments but nothing big. I was asked to submit my vacation plans for the holidays and I was more than happy to do that even though it forced me to consider just how fast the holidays are approaching.
I finished my book club book just in time for the meeting so now I am back to Sleeping Beauties for the read along (#sleepingbeautiesRAL).
We sat down to watch Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and we really enjoyed it. I wasn’t aware that it was a Time Burton movie. Makes me want to read the book now.
Still watching Fear the Walking Dead and it’s good. I think there are only a couple of episodes left since The Walking Dead starts soon.
American Horror Story – Cult continues to entertain me. It’s a little twisted and bloody but the story is coming together nicely. I can’t really tell where it will go from here but I am expecting a complete turnaround for one of the main characters, Ally.
We had pizzas one night. Breakfast for dinner, one night. Cheese stuffed chicken breasts with broccoli. I resorted to chicken tenders and tator tots one night out of desperation. I also baked a cake for the birthday girl.
My family. We work hard and some days I feel as if we are always waving to each other as we come and go but for the most part, we still make time to be together and that’s really what’s important.
How are you doing after the events of last week? Even if you didn’t know anyone involved, it still weighs heavily on you, doesn’t it?
