It‘s a snowy day here in Michigan‘s thumb coast so spending some time with the a new read, a heated blanket, and a (very large but yet very warm) puppy who decided she HAD to use my chair to watch the snow fall.

@Clwojick my winter games total is only 380 😩 sorry for being a terrible teammate! My son was in the hospital for a bit in December and is just now pulling fully out of being sick so I was reading and watching movies but STRUGGLING to track points/word search words.

TheSpineView So sorry. You poor thing. Hope he makes a few recovery. Sending hugs!💞 2mo
Clwojick No worries at all - just glad you could join in when you had the time. Hope your little one is doing better now. 💕 2mo
PathfinderNicole @TheSpineView @Clwojick thank you for your good thoughts! He‘s doing SO much better now! Basically back to normal outside of getting tired easier than usual 2mo

Not a lot of reading being done today (even though my book club meets tomorrow and I‘m only 2 chapter in 🙃) because ESPN is televising their first EVER regular season wrestling dual! And it‘s Iowa State vs Iowa so of course the ex college wrestler husband and I have to watch. Let‘s go Hawks!

Thanksgiving read while the hubs is at PT. He got cleared to unlock his brace today at his dr appointment so he can bend it and he was happier than a kid on Christmas about it. Honestly though, don‘t blame him at all

mabell A big step! I‘m sure that feels great! 3mo
PathfinderNicole @vonnie862 it really is! The first one takes place at Christmas so I read it a couple years ago for Winter Games and got hooked 😂 3mo
PathfinderNicole @mabell it did!! Until his PT scolded him for doing too much on his feet and told him he had to take it really easy this weekend because the swelling was causing range of motion issues lol 3mo

After a truly awful last 2 weeks of October I‘m back to posting on Litsy! Reading the new Royal Spyness while my husband is in surgery. He‘s having an ACL reconstruction and meniscus tear repaired since he tore them up this summer at some training for his job but since he‘s so used to knee pain he didn‘t think anything about it until it swelled up to grapefruit size.

I have read The Great Pumpkin to my son every year on Halloween night after trick or treating since he was born! He‘s an October baby so it started when he was only a couple weeks old (the only year we did it without trick or treating first). Can‘t believe this is our 12th year doing it. We always watch the movie after too. #sundayfunday

I‘ve been a bit in love with Steve since Ghost Hunters first aired so when I saw he had written a book I knew I had to read it! It did not disappoint! He‘s funny and his love for what he does really shines through. Super fascinating look into ghost hunting, the show, and a bit of Steve‘s background. Now time for a Ghost Hunters rewatch 😂 #31by31 #spookoween #falling4books #TeamCreepinItReal

Hey I‘m back everyone! It‘s been a crazy, no good summer for me after getting back from TX. My paternal grandfather died extremely suddenly at the beginning of July and it triggered a terrible reading slump for me as I‘ve been struggling to deal with the manner of his death and my grief. Here‘s hoping a fun, fluffy book while the kidlet is at swimming lessons will help!

Second book for #JumpStart2023 down! This book was so cute but with some of the best depiction of depression/weight of having to live up to a family name I‘ve ever seen. Honestly gave me a lot of Check, Please vibes! Also covers “a borrowed book” prompt for the #NoBuyChallenge2023 and FOUR prompts for #ReadySetRead2023 (a debut, sports romance, LGBTQ+, author‘s name has initials)

Well, wasn‘t planning on spending my NYE afternoon at the urgent care but here we are. 2 hour wait for my kiddo to be seen for an ear infection. Started complaining around 11 that his ear was a little sore and quickly devolved to nearly in tears pain 3 hours later. Thankfully had this book and another stacked on the island to read tonight so it was an easy grab out the door.
