Sunday Post 14

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): It finally seems like my daughter is doing better after her accident. Monday was a horrible night—it ended with her throwing up repeatedly for an hour and a half and then us going to the ER again (on recommendation from our regular doctor). But then she got better and we ended up leaving because the ER was packed and some people said they’d been there for over 5 hours and hadn’t been seen yet! I figured it was better to go home and let her get some sleep and get to our doctor first thing in the morning, which turned out… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): My daughter is recovering, slowly but surely. We found out on Friday that she will need surgery on her ankle after all. (It’s a bit frustrating that we didn’t find that out in the ER when the specialist came to check on her x-rays—apparently she was called away to an emergency, so we never saw her again. She told the nurse that they wouldn’t be doing surgery, but we can only assume now that she meant they wouldn’t be doing it that day.) The biggest issue she’s been facing now is that she’s been nauseated all the time because she has… Read more »

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Another unfortunately eventful week in the Hewitt household. We ended up at the ER for the second time in two weeks (in case you missed it, the first time was when my husband cut his finger with a hatchet). This was a much more serious incident—my daughter was in a car accident. My husband and I were at my son’s floor hockey game when I got a call from a number I didn’t recognize (and of course I just ignored it). A few minutes later, I checked my voicemail and saw the transcript. It said, “Hi ________ my name… Read more »

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): The back yard is officially done!! And it is gorgeous! We’ve already had fires out there a few nights (and all fingers have remained intact, unlike what I reported in my last Sunday Post). Here’s a picture (taken from our upstairs bathroom). I might try to include a few more pics in my month wrap-up as well (since you can’t see everything from this one, but it’s rainy and I can’t take more right now). I sang for the first time on our church’s worship team this weekend. (Which is why this is getting posted a bit late this… Read more »

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead. This past week on FYFA (and in my life): The back yard is looking really great!! It’s still in process, but here are a couple of pics so you can see how it’s going: The first shows the patio mostly finished (there’s upside down decking on that bottom stair, which is why it looks weird). The second two show the landscaping so far (the patio looks strange in these because they put a layer of sand over the patio for while they work—I guess it protects it?). I’ll try to have better pics next week, when hopefully it should be finished! Actually, last night we were so excited… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Sorry I was late with the Discussion Challenge link-up this month! Shannon wrote the post right on time, and I had it all ready to go. Except apparently I didn’t hit the schedule button. And I didn’t even notice until the 4th that it was missing! Yikes! (I blame the fact that we were working on the deck so much this weekend and then I’ve had a cold—my brain’s been fuzzy all week!) Now that we’re done with the deck, the landscaping company that we hired has started on the patio and landscaping. In addition to the patio, we’re… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): As you can see, I decided to go ahead with the change to my blog header. As several people pointed out, the absolute worst thing that can happen is that I end up not loving it and I go back to the blond fox girl. I think I love her this way, though, so I doubt I’ll go back. We’re almost done with the deck! We’ve got basically everything but the fascia up, which we’ll hopefully finish today, assuming it doesn’t rain (there’s a 40% chance of rain, so…). Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I went to go see the musical Come From Away with my mom and mother-in-law last Sunday! The show was fabulous! I knew it was going to totally tug at my heartstrings, but I ended up being really surprised at how funny it also was. I spent a lot more time laughing than crying—a tough balance with a show about 9/11. We’re making headway on the deck! We had about half the new deck done as of yesterday. Some parts of it have been slow going (the old framing isn’t totally square, which has caused some difficulties), but Friday… Read more »

These past two weeks on FYFA (and in my life): I’m back from my hiatus! I spent the last two weeks in LA—first on a family vacation and then at an SCBWI conference. And, surprisingly, I did almost no blogging while I was gone. Okay, I’ll confess that I did write one review that I had scheduled and finished a Sunday Post, but both of those things happened at the very beginning of the vacation while my husband and two younger kids were still stuck traveling (their flight got canceled). Other than that, I didn’t blog, didn’t respond to comments, didn’t even blog hop. There’s a teensy piece of me… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Right now, I’m on vacation in LA! (Thanks, Mom, for taking care of the house and the dogs for us.) Our family is having a little fun in the sun before I go to the West Coast SCBWI conference. I’m especially excited for the conference because I’ll get to meet my agent and some of the other authors from the agency! The vacation got off to a bit of a rocky start because the flight that my husband and two younger kids were supposed to be on got canceled. We had booked me on a separate flight so we… Read more »
