Welcome back to Write On for another Weekend Coffee Share! I hope you had a productive week last week and a lovely, relaxing weekend! Before I forget, a very Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads out there! I hope you had a lovely, relaxing day being spoiled by those you love and that love you. ☺️
If we were having coffee I would tell you that this weekend was okay for the most part. I got an enormous amount of reading done, which made me extremely happy! I started and finished four (4!!!) books on my Kindle app, which not only surprised me but made me extremely happy as well! It seems that it’s been too long since I’ve really taken time out to read and I quite enjoyed doing it this weekend. I read Buried by C.J. Carmichael, The Goodbye Storm by Danielle Stewart, Follow You Home by Mark Edwards, and Scraps of Paper by Kathryn Meyer Griffith. These were all really good books and if you like suspenseful and/or mystery type stories I highly recommend the second two books!
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I didn’t get nearly as much done this weekend as I hoped to. I was still fairly productive, but not nearly as much as I would have liked to be. It seemed that every time I turned around there was one more thing for me to clean. It was exhausting. There’s never enough hours in the day for me and I oftentimes find myself overwhelmed. I’ll be glad when the school year starts again and the kids are back in school. It seems the school year is far more relaxing than summer is for me somehow.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that my stepmother, whom I have never been particularly close to and don’t particularly care for, texted me yesterday and asked me why she hadn’t heard from me in awhile. I told her what she should already know- I’m an adult who has three children, a significant other, a puppy and a job. Last time I checked I didn’t see her calling or messaging me at all either. She’s one of those who thinks the world revolves around her. 🙄 She put me in quite the nasty mood, a bad enough mood that I was so anxious about having to speak to her if I called my Dad to wish him a happy Father’s Day so I just didn’t call. I’m horrible person, I know. And I’m going to leave that situation at that before I say a lot of nasty stuff about this woman.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the mosquitos here are freaking horrible. I have no idea how to get rid of them but they’re everywhere. Mosquitos are my arch nemesis and I have quite the phobia of them. I don’t know how they get in the house, I swear they’re breeding indoors. I spend 98% of my time at home killing the little buggers and they make my anxiety skyrocket. Why can’t I have a normal phobia like heights or elevators? Why does it have to be mosquitos? I hate them… 😧 (Also if anyone has any tips on how to kill them indoors, please feel free to share them. I’m two seconds from a panic attack. I can feel it.)
If we were having coffee I would tell you that’s really all that’s been new lately. I haven’t really written much because I’ve been so absorbed in my reading and in family life. I’ll try to catch up on everyone’s Coffee Shares this week. I do hope all you Dad’s had a lovely Father’s Day and I hope everyone has a lovely upcoming week! Until next time!
