I Survive a Rough Week | Sunday Summary #27

The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer, is a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Caution: Her site has sidebar ads that sometimes contain cover images which may be offensive to some.

I have a sister who has been very ill. She has had to drop all her classes for the semester and lost one of her part time jobs. As a family, we have been working together this week to make sure she has enough money for food & rent. If she ends up needing surgery, I will be taking time off work to go take care of her (my other sisters & sisters-in-law all have small children, and it would be awkward for a brother to care for her in this situation).


In addition, I am the supervisor of a small department at work and a personnel issue blew up this week & had to be elevated to my boss. It has been very emotionally distressing, and required a lot of extra documenting & meetings. Which is why I may not have responded to your comments nor commented back yet. And is also why there is no "Exploring Cyberspace" section in this post this week; I just wasn't able to do my usual visiting.


Some things I am grateful for (in honor of Thanksgiving month in the U.S., and to help me stay positive): A family that loves and takes care of each other. / Friends at work who are emotionally supportive / Blogging friends who say nice things about me on Twitter. / Blog Ahead & having some reviews etc stockpiled, so I didn't miss posting anything. / I can be proud of myself for not going on a freebie rampage (my, "don't have any money," version of retail therapy). / And most importantly, a Heavenly Father who loves me & gives me peace when I remember to ask.


"Sci-Fi Month is a month-long blog event, that I [Rinn Reads] hosted for the first time in 2013, created to celebrate everything amazing about science fiction. From TV shows to movies, books to comics, and everything else in between, it was intended to help us share our love and passion for this genre and its many, many fandoms. It was such a success – and I honestly wasn’t expecting that many people to join in – that people were already asking in December whether it would be held again the next year!


Sci-Fi Month has a schedule that all participants can add to, meaning everyone can clearly see what is being posted each day. This also encourages participants to comment on and visit other blogs." You can also follow on Twitter @SciFiMonth and/or #RRSciFiMonth
