Sunday Post #129: TGIF!

Posted February 4, 2018 in Meme / 30 Comments

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.

 

Thank God it’s February, right?! 

We got a ton of snow last Monday so we didn’t go to my son’s field trip to the Henry Ford museum on Tuesday; the roads up where we live were just too bad. I was bummed because my son’s online school has great field trips, you just have to drive pretty far to them. You’d think living in Michigan the county would be on top of plowing the roads. Nope. They wait until the snow ends to start plowing. Seriously.

 

Nothing much else going on. I installed a new internet router on Friday. I made my hubs go out and buy a Google Wifi system and I highly recommend it. I don’t care if they track everything I do or say (I have a couple of Google Homes, too). I’ve got nothing to hide so no biggie. Eh.. Totally worth it for super speedy internet that doesn’t drop 😉

  1. Our plowing has been less than ideal over here too, the roads have been terrible this winter. and then when they do plow they take out half the mailboxes in the county lol.

    Google wifi huh? I’ll have t look into it since my Comcast service sucks!

    Love that Jake the dog piece. 🙂

    • Well, I have Comcast so…. Google wifi is just my router for my 1 story ranch with a finished basement. If your router isn’t making it to the ends of your house, then check this out. It won’t help the Comcast coming in, tho 🙁

      OMG! YES, the mailboxes!!! So stupid!! I thought they could see them!!

    I think the Henry Ford Museum is awesome. So it stinks that you didn’t get to go.

    You got another follower

    • Awww, thanks!! And you must be local so doubly thanks!!! And yes!! We did Greenfield Village a few years back but I was soooo hoping to get inside this year 🙁

    • I remember your mom was up here! Is she still or did get smart and finally move south?? 🙂 Trust me, I’m outta here as soon as my hubs retires!!!!!

  3. Really, they don’t plow the roads in the morning before people have to go to work, and then again during the day if the snow continues? I thought there were mostly Scandinavians in Michigan? (I have family in Michigan, and they are originally from Sweden…) Sorry you had to miss a fun field trip!
    Your new books are definitely shiny! It’s just impossible to resist review books, even if my TBR overflows too.
    Have a wonderful week ahead, Kristin. I hope there will be no more snow.

    • Ya know, Michiganders are mostly polish and french, believe it or not. Settlers came in from French Canada. And then there’s a HUGE Greek and middle eastern population down in Detroit. Scandinavians went to Minnesota, where my mom’s family is from (and what I’m about 1/4 of, believe or not). My momma is blond hair, blue eyes and tall (or used to be). And I have this weird love of door harps (hahahahaha). Wow… I can babble today!!!

    • In the US, online schools are just now becoming accepted. Basically, the tax money that would have gone to the local public school for my son instead goes to the school district where his online school is located (which is about 2 hours away from us). The teachers are in a building in cubicles but there’s no overhead for janitors, lunchroom, paper, pencils. blah, blah, blah… It’s not for everyone but it’s great for my son 🙂 He’s high functioning autistic and he doesn’t need the pressure of his disability with bullying and fitting in because of his speech. Ahhh, I’m really on a role today with my babbling!!!

    • Franklin and Delaware county have their act together on just about anything compared to Michigan. I really don’t need to explain that one, right???? 😀 And four hours… from personal experience 🙂

  4. Hi Kristin I live in MI too, Sterling Heights. LOL about snow plowing the roads so true. I have a Fire Station on my street so our road is always plowed and my hubby is very anal about his driveway being cleared so I never can use the excuse of snowed in for work. Bummer your son did not get to go on his fieldtrip. My son did in elementary school and liked it. I have yet to make it there. Hopefully one day I can take my grandson. Love your blog. I am now following and look forward to chatting books with you. I look forward to your review of Moonlight Sins. I should have mine up this week too.

    Happy Reading

    • I had no clue you were local!!! I’m in Port Huron so when I want to shop for “real”, I make the trip down there 🙂 Your area always confuses me b/c I never know if I’m in Chesterfield, Sterling Hts, Utica, or Macomb Twp!! Thank goodness for GPS when you’re trying to find a store 🙂

    • Sadly, it was probably me who was more disappointed. He got to stay home and play games after he finished his school work *eye roll* I’m thinking time limits again… 🙂

  5. Wasn’t Brooklynaire such a good one? I’m looking forward to reading your review on that one. Nate and Becca are couple goals! 🙂

    I’m very curious about the Google internet because I’m hearing such good things about it. I don’t care that they track me either but I have to wait for them to offer it here in Los Angeles. Hopefully soon. Fingers crossed.

    Have a great week, Kristin!

  6. I dont miss living in snow country. They don’t ever plow our neighborhood streets here in Portland, we don’t get that much snow, and when we do, they only plow the main roads, so if you are on a big, steep hill like we are, we can get stuck for several days. luckily it only happens maybe once or twice a year. It has been so mild this year, it feels like spring already. I am loving it.
