Sunday Post - 10/15/23

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.

Baby Boy came home from school Friday coughing. Saturday afternoon, he woke up from nap with a fever. His breathing got really scary during the night Sunday night. Thankfully, we had albuterol and a nebulizer and his breathing evened out enough for me to feel like I could sleep. It wasn't a peaceful night. Monday I took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with RSV. Monday was a scheduled day off of school so that was nice that no one missed any. They wanted to see us again Tuesday to check his breathing so we went back. His breathing was still rough but you could tell he was feeling a little better than Monday. Tuesday was also Husband's birthday, and it was a stressful day for me with the kids. I helped Little Girl bake a birthday cake for him, but she was so impatient to put on the birthday candles that she didn't wait for the cake to cool and the candles melted inside the cake. We thankfully just cut around those pieces. Wednesday, Little Girl started feeling bad. Her throat hurt, nose was stopped up and she started running a fever. Baby Boy started complaining about his ears hurting. So Thursday we packed up for our third trip to the doctor's office in one week (so far a record for us that I never hope to beat). Baby Boy ended up with a double ear infection on top of RSV. Little Girl wasn't infected yet and thankfully she seemed to recover quickly. Friday, Husband and Little Boy ended up getting hit. Husband just has congestion and a sore throat. Little Boy developed a bad cough and ended up running fever Friday night. We did get in on the Krispy Kreme $0.13 donuts for Friday the 13th. We'd hoped to go to the pumpkin patch on Saturday, but with Little Boy running a fever Friday night and then he ended up running a fever almost all day Saturday it just wasn't going to happen. It did end up being a beautiful day Saturday so we got outside for a walk, and I got to read on the front porch in one of my fairly new rocking chairs for a little while.

My annual "All Things Halloween" event is starting. This is my month-long event where I feature reviews from Halloween-y genres (fantasy, paranormal, supernatural, sci-fi, horror, mystery, thriller, and suspense). Over the last few years I've had mostly fantasy books as I just haven't been in the mood for much horror, but still...these are books that can get you in the mood for Halloween.
