Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 4/22/18

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Husband was off work Monday through Thursday of this week and boy was it nice to have him home. Of course the kids, especially Little Girl, loved having him here. But I certainly enjoyed it too. I mean aside from the help he gives me around the house and with the kids, I actually enjoy spending time with him. We're coming up on our 9th anniversary next month and I can still say he's my favorite person. That being said we had some difficult parenting aspects this week. Little Girl is firmly in the stage of "I can do it myself" and "no I don't want to" and meal times have especially become a chore as she doesn't want to eat ANYTHING you put in front of her. I don't know how but at some point early this week she hurt her foot. We took her to the doctor Wednesday morning because she wasn't bearing weight on it. He says it's a sprain of some short and should heal quickly. We know that signs to look out for if it doesn't seem to be getting better. Poor Husband had a list of chores he wanted to do while off and even though he did get several of them done he is just realizing that his days off from work simply won't be work at home days for him anymore. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. It just means his expectations have to adjust a bit.

Goodreads description--Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend, Sebastian, know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be one of opportunities and chances.

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.

Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian could never forgive her for what happened.

For what she let happen.

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!

  1. I loved how you said after 9 years he is still your favorite person. That is how I feel about my own after 18 years. =) Happy Almost Anniversary. Have a great week of reading!

  2. I should really join that Enders challenge as I have sooooo many series I need to finish. I had to take a two year break from pleasure reading while I was getting a second masters in literature and now I barely remember which series I was even reading. Trying to get reorganized has been eye-opening. :)

    Happy Anniversary to you and your husband!

    Your not alone in the struggles of a child, my 3 year old son has been similar...turned off food and is pretty much forced to eat his meals. I've cut down his snacks so he'll be more hungry at meal times. He's normal a good eater, but the last 3 months he's just not been interested in eating; always wanting to play and watch tv. I've also tried to have TV off half hour before meals so he's not being dragged from it. Good luck!

    Enjoy your Jennifer Armentrout book, she's a great Author!

  7. Thank you Angelica! Good to know we're not alone. Thankfully our daughter always has been a good eater and I think mostly her dissatisfaction with meals has ceased...even if only temporarily. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
