This week in slow recovery

We left off last week as I was hurting and swollen and this week, here we are and I’m still a little swollen and pained.  I consider it a plus that this is the first day I haven’t taken any type of painkiller.

Best part of my week Being well enough (barely) to volunteer at Gage’s school for their Librarian Challenge party.  The librarian throws a big party at the end of every year for kids who double their reading goal in any quarter.  She has book themed food, crafts and a library scavenger hunt.  I was in charge of the s’more station (as in s’more reading).  This was for the older kids and the younger kids will have a party next week.  I love that the librarian goes all out and the kids feel like they’ve worked hard to earn it.

Worst part of my week  We’ve lived in the Cleveland are for 19 years and have never been to the esteemed Severance Hall to hear the Cleveland Pops.  Friends were going out of town and gave us their tickets for tonight.  Unfortunately, today I’ve been sick and we had to skip it.  I’m sad about it because I was really looking forward to it.

Reading  Very little.  I read a bit on A Ladder to the Sky, but I’ve not been in the mood.  Hopefully, tonight before bed I can read again because it’s a good book!

Listening  I gave up on the audio from last week and started another that I like much better, Michael Koryta’s How I Happened.  I’m halfway through and eager to finish.

Watching on the small screen  Somehow Jason convinced to watch Game of Thrones with him from the beginning.  I’ve watched some of the later seasons so I agreed.  We did Season 1 a month ago and started Season 2 this week.

Plans for the weekend  The next two days are weather dependent because it is supposed to rain but we’d like to go to the Blossom Festival in the next town over.  There are rides, a parade, hot air balloons, etc.   If it rains we’ll all go see Aladdin.  We leave for a short trip to Columbus on Monday that I’ve got to get us ready for.

    Gee that has been a long time with tooth/mouth pain. Hope you are 100% better by next week. Great pic of Gage and friends. We are going to my son’s for a cookout tomorrow and today we delivered flowers to a few area cemeteries. Hope you can have some fun.

    I’m so sorry you are feeling poorly. When one is in pain, it feels like the pain will never end. I hope you get some relief soon.

    A school celebration for reading is wonderful. I’m glad you were able to participate. Congratulations to your son!

    Let’s hope you can get back to reading Ladder soon. Audios are good, too.

    The picture of your son is marvelous. Children give me such hope.

    When I first visit a blog (or after a long time of not being here – I now see your username “Stacybuckeye” and know I’ve been here before, probably even with Sunday Salon), I look to see where the person is from, and naturally, I see you’re from the Cleveland area. <– This before I read this blog post. And you mention Cleveland here too. *facepalm* My sister-in-law and her husband live near Cleveland. She works for Sherwin-Williams.

    With that out of the way, I'm sorry to hear about your continuing pain with your tooth and missing the Cleveland Pops. We've had rain here too, although yesterday morning was good and this morning is good, but later today…blech.

    Sorry you’re stil in pain. That sounds like a great thing to do for the kids at school. I’m going with my two sons and daughter in law today to see Aladdin.

    I’m so sorry you’ve been sick. I had a major sinus infection over the last two weeks and sadly I didn’t get much done or what I needed to anyway. So kudos to you for getting on and posting. I hope you are feeling better!
