Sunday. Yesterday made six weeks since my life changed forever. There are days I want to write… I open up a new post… and then I walk away. I am still struggling fitting into a new normal and stubbornly I don’t even want a new normal.
I want everything back the way it was.
I miss writing. I miss reviewing. I want to do something besides sitting in my house trying to escape this new reality but having no idea how. I do read. I do get out a little. I am signed up for BEA (Book Expo America) on May 26 – 29 in New York but even now I go back and forth on if that is what I can do. I want to… I am nervous to… I am giving myself until this Tuesday to fully fully decide.
I am doing a little. This past Tuesday we had book club and we skyped with the author, Susan Gloss. Her book Vintage inspired us to dress up and since that was what we had planned to do when we originally discussed this book in March, we stuck with it. These little outings while probably good for me to do, are exhausting.
This past Friday a group of friends met at a cabin on a lake and we sat around and talked around a camp fire, grilled good food, and were just together. It was both sweet and also hard to do but I am glad I did it.
Below are the books and audio that have come in the last 6 weeks since I posted. I have picked away at a few of them finding that while I am unable to watch TV I am able to read a bit to take my mind off things.
Today is another rainy day in Central Minnesota. The last week + has been cold and rainy and while it fits my mood…it is getting old. After I post this I will probably try to read a bit before I lay down for a nap. I do have reviews to write, today I hope to start writing reviews and posting them but I have also learned these past 6 weeks that nothing happens on my schedule any more as it takes me forever to do the simplest tasks.
Until I write again. Thank you for reading whatever I am saying and thank you for being the amazing people on the other side of my posts.
