Monday Morning Check-In: Dealing…

Monday Morning Check-In

Good Monday morning everyone.  Not a lot of reading or blogging went on last week and the aftermath of losing my best friend still continues to plague me.  In case you didn’t read my last post I woke up to find my cat Tilla had an embolism early Tuesday morning and we had to put her to sleep. Tilla was my favorite and the loss hit me quite hard especially since I was still recovering from re-homing my horse.  It took me four days to even pick up a book again and I decided to set aside my current review book and read a tried and true author.  The review book doesn’t come out until Nov 1st and with the current state of my emotional state I didn’t feel it was fair to review something for a publisher right now.

I’m feeling better but still not myself.  Today I am going to just indulge myself and do what ever the mood takes me.  I have two peacocks going to a new home, good thing, and this blog post to accomplish and that is it.  No wait I have a book talk at my library but that isn’t until this afternoon.  I might read, I might paint my nails, I might just play with kittens and watch tv.  The goal is de-stressing because the trauma has been manifesting physically in the form of panic attacks.

I know this is probably TMI but I might not get many reviews posted over the next couple weeks and I thought I should share why.  I need to find some world to get lost in and forget my pain but I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for now. I’m going to stick to favorite authors and nothing too heavy and hope that my reading interest picks up.  I have been listening to audio books as I fall asleep, non-fiction mainly, and that seems to help keep my head clear.  The only problem is I fall asleep and have to keep going back and re-listening to what I missed…

I hope you all have a great week and I will try to get a Top Ten Tuesday for you all tomorrow.  Happy Reading…
