#WeekendCoffeeShare (January 4, 2020)

Even though I don’t join in nearly every week, I really missed the #WeekendCoffeeShare crowd over the holidays. I’m so glad the linky is back, so I’m joining in today. Grab a cup of your favorite hot or even cold beverage and let’s catch up.

If we were having coffee, I’d say that I prefer water or green tea today, as I’m sick with a nasty cold or mild case of the flu. I can still drink coffee, but it doesn’t taste as good as does water or green tea.

My father-in-law was sick with the flu over the Christmas break. He ended up needing to go into hospital on the 27th for dehydration. Thankfully, he’s back home and slowly recovering. Then over New Year’s, my husband got sick. I seem to have caught it from either of them, but my mother-in-law says it’s a “men’s flu”, in that women don’t get it nearly as bad as men do. I’m hoping she’s right, although of course I hope my husband and father-in-law make a speedy recovery too.

If we were having coffee, I’d share that despite the flu going round my family, we had a good New Year’s. My husband and I went to his parents. One of my sisters-in-law joined us after dinner. I spent the evening mostly reading, while still sitting in the same room as everyone else, so that occasionally I could socialize.

If we were having coffee, I’d say that my 2020 is off to a pretty good start. I came back to the care facility early Wednesday afternoon, because my husband needed to drive me back. I relaxed some over Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, although on Thursday and Friday I did have day activities.

If we were having coffee, I’d share that I’m feeling productive in regards to finding a solution for getting to my husband by public transportation. I had a bit of a crying fit last night because I thought we wouldn’t find a solution and I would struggle to see my husband regularly. My support coordinator E-mailed the behavior specialist though to help us think out a solution.

If we were having coffee, I’d want to share all about the books I’m looking forward to reading. I didn’t read at all today, but over the holiday break, have truly been enjoying reading. Of course, my virtual shelves are still stacked much fuller than my slow reading pace can follow, but so what? I’m a collector at heart, after all.

How have you been this past week and over the holidays?

  1. We, my husband and I, have enjoyed a quiet New Year’s Day week, thanks in part to getting sidelined by winter storms, off and on, that canceled most of our commitments. (We skipped the rest of them!) I also have been reading a lot, this week. I found a recent book written by one of my college professors; I took a class from him in 1967, actually.

    I hope that you don’t get the flu and that the transportation logistics become clear, so you can comfortably make the trip to be with your husband. Best wishes!

  2. Hi Astrid.
    I’ve missed you and hope this (late) note finds you recovered from that bug.
    I too have a too-long want to read list, but part of my problem is that I really like a certain genre of stories that are like the old dime store novels. There are thousands and they are like literary cola to me. I can read and enjoy them all day long so I rarely get to the more thoughtful and significant books.
    Oh well, this is supposed to be what I do for relaxation.
    I’m glad you stopped by and glad that I finally remembered to circle back for those who posted their shares after me. Now I have to catch up.
    Best wishes for a wonderful 2020 for you and your family.
