Carnegie's Maid: A Novel | Marie Benedict

#Onward to the next journey. This seems a bit out of my wheelhouse but it may be a #blameitonLitsy. I'm not sure why I tagged it on #Libby, but it may have something to do with The Dollhouse.

What Happened | Hillary Rodham Clinton

Woof. This was a tough read for me. It‘s infuriating in much the same way the year leading up to the election was. How did we get here? I appreciated the time spent reflecting on that question while reading. The book‘s conclusion brings up many of the themes of another book I‘m “sort of” reading at the moment, Brene Brown‘s Braving the Wilderness. We have so, so far to go. #onward

Cinfhen I‘m waiting to speak with surgeon, my youngest got injured on his teen trip and needed emergency surgery on his hand 😥😥😥I feel terrible as I‘m 5000 miles away and worried sick. All I know is he‘s out of surgery & still in the recovery room. @Kalalalatja @TrishB sometimes being a parent is too stressful 1y
Kalalalatja Oh no! I hope he‘s okay, everything considered, and that you get some answers soon 💕 1y
TrishB Oh know, fully agree, most stressful job ever. Sending hugs, hope you get some news soon ❤️ xx 1y
MicheleinPhilly Oh no! I‘m sure he will recover swiftly. Kids are resilient like that. Keep us posted please! 😘 1y
Cinfhen Thank you, friends...still have not spoken to surgeon its 12:30am in NZ and I‘ve reached the nurses station who would only say he‘s resting comfortably and surgery went well. Haven‘t spoken with my son as he is still groggy and a bit out of it @MicheleinPhilly @TrishB @Kalalalatja #WaitingSucks 1y
emilyhaldi Sorry to hear about your son, I‘m sure the waiting is unbearable!!! Best wishes to him and your fam! ❤️❤️❤️ 1y
Jas16 I am so sorry about your son and wishing him a speedy recovery. It is so difficult to be far from loved ones at times like this. 1y
Nerdgirl_Ms_Sorrells oh dear, hold on Mom! ❤️❤️ 1y
Cinfhen Thank you!!! STILL NOT spoken to dr or my son - it‘s now 4am in NZ , nurse told me Dr. would be making rounds between 7-8am but I did speak to the staff member who was with my son during surgery and he said “Zach was in good spirits & a real trooper.” He also said he‘s pretty annoyed that he‘s missing days and just wants to get back to his friends @emilyhaldi @Jas16 @Nerdgirl_Ms_Sorrells so I‘m taking all that as a good sign 😃 1y
robinb Hope all is well! Hang in there, Mom! 🤗 Best wishes to him on a full/speedy recovery. 1y

RachelO I'm so sorry Cindy. Hope you've managed to catch up with the surgeon AND your son, and grab a few hours of sleep - that sounds like a horribly long stressful day. Love & hugs 🤗 1y
robinb Just checking in...hope your son is doing well. 1y
arubabookwoman I hope you‘ve been able to talk to the surgeon by now and that you are reassured that your son is doing well. I‘m sorry it‘s all so stressful for you so far away from him. 1y
Cinfhen Thank you all!! I did speak to dr & son. Surgery went well, next 48 hrs are very important ( need to make sure blood flow & mobility has been restored to injured hand) for now he׳s in good spirits and yea some pain meds (🤪) He‘s looking forward to rejoining his group tomorrow night (Saturday) hand is in a cast and limited activity but Thank God it could have been much worse!! I truly appreciated all the #LitsyLove 1y

Cinfhen Thanks sooooo much @Centique He had surgery in Invercargill. Now he‘s back in Queenstown. He flys tomorrow evening to Melbourne to join the others.

I appreciate your kind offer, Jo!! 😘 💜 1y

I've been reading my current Book Club selection for about 2 weeks now and find myself just 20% in...it makes me sleepy every time I pick it up. Does Jahren's narrative pick up (??) and, if so, does it happen before the midpoint? My Magic 8 Ball outlook is "not so good" ?.

Sace I turn off all the progress options. I'm such a slow reader and I don't want kindle to remind me of that. 😕 2y
Cathythoughts I also turn off the "reading Progress " option until I'm at least half way through a book. Even if I'm loving the book I find it distracting ? (edited) 2y
JackOBotts @RestlessFickleBookSlut & @Cathythoughts - thanks for the suggestion...I may have to do that on this one. My friend gave me some hope that things will come together, but it's definitely an uphill battle for me. #onward 2y
Sace @JackOBotts reading progress is fun when the book as awesome and you can't stop reading. It's torture when you aren't quite into the book. 2y
