#SundayRoundup of #Books #Week #23!!!

Welcome to the #SundayRoundup #23

Hope you are doing wonderful. A little teary this week as I was talking to my friend about my sister. We are having a memorial for her, around her birthday, since my brother was in the hospital and we just didn't want to do it without him. He is recovering and we are really hoping that he will be well soon. A lot of family will be coming of course and I really do look forward to that. School is going great and Mid-terms went well (exhales). Still have 7 more weeks to go and well, thesis to do and tests to pass. Overall, even in the midst of my sister passing, my brother being hospitalized, and my Aunt coming to stay with us to recover from surgery, it has been a good start to school. I have had these 3 bucket lists/goals/dreams - whatever you want to call them - I have done one already. Getting my BSN was my second. I will only have one left to go! I will have to make some more goals/dreams/bucket lists up! 

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!!

Song of the Week: The Police!

  1. I had a pretty successful book buying time on holiday. I also bought a few this week but they will be on my post next Friday. I'm still reading short stories to catch up on a few new authors and then it'll be back to the books! With grief there are good weeks and bad weeks but I hope you find the strength to get through it with those you love.

  2. Yay for completing items on your bucket list!

    I hope being able to talk about your sister will help you.

  3. Sorry to hear about your sisters passing.

    Hope your brother is coming better soon and your aunt as well.

  4. That's awesome that you are checking things off your bucket list. Alas, I have done none. I hope all your loved ones get well soon, and ((HUGS)) while you plan your sister's memorial.

  5. Wow I am sorry to hear about your sister and I hope your brother is well again soon. Glad you have such a wonderfully supportive family. I'm jealous of your pool! Have a good week!

  6. So sorry about your sister...and your brother's hospitalization. Time with family will be a good thing.

    Thanks for sharing The Police...I love that song!

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. So sorry about your sister. I hope your brother recovers soon and all will be together to remember her. Your pool looks refreshing. I plan to enjoy mine later today. Got some thunder rumbling in the distance so I'm waiting for it to pass by.
