This Week – Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon

Fave pic IMG_4046 On Earth Day we spent some time in nature.

Highlights Well, on Wednesday I spent my first day running errands in about 2 months.  A trip to Gage’s school, Whole Foods, local bookstore pickup (they hung my purchase on a hook outside their back door), the metro park with Gage, and a dinner curbside pickup.  I’m not gonna lie, it gave me a little boost of kinda-normal that was nice.

Also, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon.  I went in thinking I was going to try to stay up the whole 24, but decided around hour 18 that I was going to call it a day (around 2 am this morning).  I probably would have made it at least another few hours but I lost my ear buds so I couldn’t move around the house listening to audio books in the wee hours of the night like I usually do.  It was a beautiful day to be outside and read.

Plans for the Weekend Doing some prep work for homeschooling.  We got a little behind this week.  What about your weekend?

      Yes, on Wednesday I was reminded there is still a world outside my property and it’s chugging along. It was nice. Now to go a few more weeks before I can remind myself again 🙂

    I’m so glad you were able to get out for a bit of normal. I am waiting until my cough goes away completely before I get out.

    And, wow, you did the readathon, too. I only read for a couple of hours this time, and that’s not like me. I should have joined in. I wish I had.

    Have a great week!

    I’m very behind this week and need to get some alone time to do some homeschool prep. I have a general template I’ve been following for busy works but desperately need something different or some fun stuff for this week.

    It’s been a long time since I did a proper stay up all night readathon. Last time I did it, it was 10 years ago when I was still in grad school and my roommate joined me. No husband or kids obviously to derail me from such important days. Maybe I’ll get to do it one of these days.

    • stacybuckeye says:

      Yeah, when you’ve got a husband and younger kids it’s more difficult. When it was 2 this morning I thought, if I go to bed now I won’t be nearly as miserable tomorrow. One day maybe I’ll do the 24 again, but I don’t see it happening any time soon.
      Homeschool got as little derailed last week so I need to do better this week, for both of us!

    Our store is open for curbside sales and we’re each working 4, 4 hour days. I think it’s giving us some sense of normal. Some other stores are starting to reopen but we’re not ready to do that yet.

    Psycho is one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen!

    • stacybuckeye says:

      I think curbside is the way to go for awhile, at least for us. I was happy to discover that one of the local independent bookstores is doing bookstore sales. I hope your business can get back to normal soon and safely,
      Psycho is one of those rare, perfect movies.

    It is nice to get out a bit for a few things. Sort of like normal. I’m filling my car up with gas this week! Ha! Nice picture of Gage. Hope your week goes well, Stacy. Take care!

    Love that picture of Gage on Earth Day — it looks like a stream near my son’s house. I only participated in the Readathon twice I think. Too old for all-nighters LOL Take care Stacy.

    Busy week! But glad you were able to get out a bit. I did my shopping trip as well last week. It was a bit scary but I felt safer at Costco. I feel like more people were wearing masks and all of the employees were.

    I love those two movies as well! Fantastic ones to see this week. I’m glad you were able to participate in the readathon. I did not at all. I was planning on it but we ended up doing some spring cleaning and doing some family stuff and one other errand and I never got around to it, unfortunately. I have high hopes for this fall, though.

    I hope school goes well for you and Gage this week and that you all stay healthy and safe!

    Impressive that you made it to hour 18 of a 24 hour read-athon. I would probably only make it to hour 2. I like my sleep too much. It was nice getting out on Earth Day. Beautiful spring days help during these times. Stay well.
