Taking a moment to remember
It’s hard to believe it’s 15 years since 9-11. So much has happened around the world since then. Take a moment to remember these past 15 years and all the people who’ve lost their lives or had their lives changed because of terrorism or war.
And lets hope for a better future.
This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!
I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.
Last week–home and blog
We’re leaving on a road trip next week and we plan to be gone for almost a month.
I didn’t get a Sunday Post done last week since we had no wireless internet for most of the week. It stopped working suddenly and then started again suddenly. No idea why it stopped or started again. Tech support didn’t help, but our internet is finally working again. It was very frustrating to pick up my computer and then realize I couldn’t get the info I needed, because there was no internet.
This week my frustration was that my allergies were acting up. It was hard to do too much when my sinuses, eyes and nose hurt. I went through boxes of Kleenex. And since we’re trying to get ready for our trip. . . .
We’re going to be away from most TV for the next month so we will miss premieres of most of the new TV shows. We’ll have to catch up when we get back home.
I managed a few posts. Some were prescheduled which helped when the internet wasn’t working. I also got quite a bit of reading done.
