Send good thoughts Clayton’s way. The poor little man is having serious tummy troubles and is under doctor’s care. We have been on vacation this week. The first half was a staycation. I took care of Clayton since he wasn’t able to attend preschool. Then Sophia got sick with a high fever and scary cough, so she had a rapid test on Thursday. Oh boy, did she put up a fight! It was negative, but she missed school for two days. Our oldest daughter (breastfeeding momma of Hazel) was exposed to Covid, so she was sent home from work Thursday afternoon. She can return Wednesday after a rapid test on Tuesday. So far, she and Hazel are fine. The second half of our vacation, Mr. Caffeinated and I traveled to Kansas. We explored outdoor gardens, visited historic sites and relaxed. We will travel home today.

During the month of August, I read/listened to 16 books. I am at 139/200 for Goodreads Challenge and 85/100 for the Audiobook Challenge. Elbow hugs! Stay Caffeinated.

    Sending good vibes Clayton, Hazel, and Hazel’s mom’s way. I hope Clayton’s tummy troubles are resolving and that Covid is staying away. The 2nd half of your vacation sounds wonderful! I hope you are having a wonderful week!

  2. Tyler H. Jolley

    Oh man, what a week for your kids and grandkids. Sending them all good thoughts. Glad you had a nice trip! Our long weekend was nice. My second oldest leaves for his mission today. Lots of emotions for sure!

  3. Lorna

    Sorry to hear both of the royals are sick. I hope they are better now! I am so jealous you got Dannika’s new book! Audio? I think I might want to listen as well.

    Hallo, Hallo,….

    What I would give to take a holiday!! It has been such an adversely hard Summer here that I could use a road trip elsewhere to reset my spirits. Yours sounded divine – as that is the kind of trip I’d enjoy myself. I’ve never been to Kansas but have heard good things! 🙂 I’ve taken stock of July & August this time round, whilst giving a nod to the joy of writing an essay for Austen in August wherein I spoke about my pursuit of Austen on Audio! (big grins) I also took a look at my September reads… however, I wanted to thank you for the advance notices for your October & November readathons! I sometimes forget when those begin and now I can keep a note to remind me!! Blessed.

    Oh- Praying for Clayton and the rest of your family.
    I hope you enjoyed your time in Kansas. I think you needed a bit of a break. 🙂
    Cloudy has a fun title. Enjoy all of your books!

  6. Sophie

    I am so sorry that Clayton and Sophia were sick Kimberly! And I hope your daughter and little Hazel will test negative! It’s hard because nowadays when someone is sick we immediately think the worst of it! Anyway I hope that you enjoyed your vacation in Kansas!

  7. Lover of Romance

    oh no those poor kiddies…..I feel for children through this, they don’t really understand it. Hope this week is much better for you all. Hope you get to enjoy the rest of your vacay.

  8. Lisa Mandina

    Ugh! So sorry that everyone seems to be dealing with all the illnesses. Hope that you guys get to enjoy just vacation time!

    Sorry to hear that the Royals have become sick. I am glad that both tests were negative. We have one last week of vacation next week and a partly heated discussion going on about digital equipment, new air conditions (most schools don´t have them) and how to handle the new covid situation with the Delta mutation and fall/winter coming up. It is crazy. Glad you had a wonderful vacation. I made a note about the upcoming readathons. Glad they will happen again this year. Happy reading and have a great new week ahead.

  10. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Oh no! Sorry to hear about every get sick. I don’t blame Sophia for having a hard time with the rapid test. Seeing those makes me cringe and I’d rather not take one myself either. Glad you were able to enjoy some of your vacation though! I miss getting away from it all!

    Nice new reads! I find myself hesitant with Kristoff’s book. I guess since last time around when I gave Nevernight a try after all the early buzz I couldn’t get into it. But this one does have vampires, soooo I might have to try it at some point!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    I hope Clayton feels better soon. And what a scare with Sophia being sick, luckily the covid test was negative. I hope your oldest daughter will be okay. Sounds like you had a decent vacation. I hope you’ll have a great week.

  12. Louise Hallett

    We worry at each cough and sniffle now. Is it only a couple of years ago we would have told them they were fine and sent them off to school – now we all panic and worry until we have a test!

    I wish I could get on with audio books – I’d manage to get through so much more of my TBR list!

  13. jessicabookworm

    Sorry to hear about the illness in your family – I hope everyone will feel better soon ? – but glad you were still able to enjoy the second half of your vacation exploring gardens, visiting historic places and relaxing. Sounds perfect! ?

  14. Greg

    Safe travels home! And I hope everyone stays healthy feels better soon. So scary now when anyone gets sick you always wonder if it’s Covid…

    Be well!

    Fraterfest and HoHoHo are both going on the calendar. 🙂
