My life has been a whirl of emotion and chaos. My ma had her brain surgery on one side, but she has a second surgery for the other side scheduled for the beginning of October. I went with for the first surgery, but I'll be staying home for the coming surgery. In the meantime, my mentally ill father has not been doing well at all, in part because of the anxiety of my ma's situation. I try to be patient, but I become more and more angry instead. You may not know it, but anger is extremely draining. The devastation of having your father tell you horrible things is draining too, though.
On a happier note, my nephew turned 5 this past week.
In any case, I haven't gotten much reading or blogging done over the past couple weeks. Most of the reading I have done has been children's books.

I'm not a huge fan of poetry, but so far this children's collection of poems is very entertaining.
The Wicked Wager by Anya Wylde
The author requested I read this romantic cozy ebook, but what with everything that has been going on I haven't gotten as far along as I'd like.
Upcoming Reading Possibilities:
I'm not going to bother trying to list anything here. I just can't predict anything in regards to my reading these days...
