I'm back for another week! I'm alive! Can't say it was a pleasurable week, but it is done. My son got through this procedures and the doctor seems to think he is suffering from severe food allergies, exact offending foods TBD. We will have an appointment next week and will learn our fate. In the meantime, we have cut out dairy (he had dairy issues as a child) and he seems to be feeling better. Let's just all say a little prayer it isn't gluten. All he eats is gluten.
A close friend of mine lost her father this week to Alzheimer's. As I lost my grandmother. Horrible disease. My thoughts were with her.
I'm not an allergic person. I can hang with cats, dogs, guinea pigs, shellfish and peanuts. But good LORD I had my issues this week. I cannot breathe, and my head feels like it will explode! It made me just want to nap and hide, and slog through the week.
I've been continuing my TV series binging. Finished HBO's first season of True Detective (this is one of the best series I've seen, right behind Breaking Bad). I'm close to catching up on The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Someone highly recommended The Wire. I feel like I need to put a few of these others to rest first!
We've also been glued to The Masters. Someday I'd love to go. I suspect that is all we will be doing tomorrow, as it is the final day.
Our spring break is late this year. It starts this coming Thursday, and we are going to Savannah and a little place called Sea Island. It can't come soon enough. I'm just marking time until then.
I really don't read much any more. I don't comment much on blogs any more either...I'm just distracted. I'll get back to my routine soon hopefully. I did finish "The Troop" by Nick Cutter, finally. What should have been a two day read was about two weeks. The book was gross and fast-paced, truly a double dog dare for those that like that kind of challenge. Now I'm back to "The Expats" again. I'm determined to finish it. Someday.
Audio is a little better. I jumped into Wally Lamb's newest release "We Are Water" for book club next month. I'd heard this was not up to his usual excellence, but from my point of view (I only have one more disc left out of 19) this is an incredible novel. It has about 40 discussion topics which is...AMBITIOUS to say the least, but from an audio perspective, it is amazing. Some of the best narration I've heard in recent times.
My daughter and I did our animal shelter duties yesterday (our offsite adoption event placed three dogs in homes - yay!), so today should be fairly uneventful. Church, grocery shopping and The Masters. Maybe a quick episode of something, maybe a little reading if I can focus! Hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing Sunday.
