After a horrible day dealing with my mom being suddenly discharged from her nursing rehabilitation facility, I'm taking a moment in my community garden with a book and a slush puppy.

I'm so completely worn out from driving to see my mom in rehab for her hip every day and staying on top of her care. On top of which I've thrown out by back, again, and, as usual, there isn't anything the doctora can do. Paused for a moment at a park near where she is today.

I've been trying to read this one for a while. It's been a stressful few days. My mother fell and broke her hip and is in the hospital. Probably going to be a
long road to recovery. I'm an only child and everything falls to me. Dealing with it alone is hard.

LiteraryinLawrence Oh no! I‘m so sorry your mom is hurt and you‘re shouldering it all. 💗 1mo
Texreader My sympathies! My mom fell recently (gratefully no broken bones), but it was the first time I had to step into caregiver shoes and so I can deeply understand what you‘re going through. My heart goes out to you and your mom for a quicker recovery than you anticipate 1mo

MilesnMelodies The seem to have her on too many pain meds as she can barely stay awake. I haven't seen a nurse since she was put into a room. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Sending you lots of positive thoughts and hugs! I hope she recovers quickly! 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks How are things? 3w
MilesnMelodies @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Thanks for asking. It's been hard traveling to see her everyday and staying on top of her care on top of my own chronic illness. Tomorrow she has a follow-up appointment with her surgeon at the crack of dawn and she has to dragged out of her facility to the doctor's office when she can barely walk. It's crazy the doctor won't come to see her, especially because her facility is in the same health care network. 3w
MilesnMelodies @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I think she's progressing as to be expected, it's a slow process and she lives in a third floor walkup so it's still unknown of she'll be able to go back there. It's going to be a long summer and I'm trying to take care of myself and get out and do things before the six months of winter we have here comes back. Sorry to vent lol. 3w

LiteraryinLawrence I love that too! It‘s one reason why even though I‘m grateful that the library is open at all these days, I don‘t like curbside pickup as much as going into the stacks myself. 5mo

My library just started giving out a spice of the month. Last month was clove, which I used to make poached pears with red wine and mulled wine for New Year's. This month I made the recipe they provided for rosemary red potatoes.

Every year, in early September, I read something about 9/11 and this new book is a great timeline of events. It's so sad how young people will never really get the impact of September 11.

"This is my spot"

Unfortunately, watching the movie is almost a waste without reading the book first. There is so much symbolism that references the book but is unexplained in the movie. It's kind of unfortunate how much they left out, including everything relating to the San Clemente Syndrome which is the entire point of the book. The movie ends up just being a nice little ode to this book which is actually intellectual and profound.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I've seen the movie without reading the book. By the time I read it, it'll be time to rewatch the film. 10mo
MilesnMelodies @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I watched the movie again after reading the book.. Although I enjoyed it the first time, it was definitely better after reading the book. 10mo
littlebunny19 I hated that fact too like many scenes that symbols ellio and Oliver in the san clement syndrom were deleted 7mo
