Week 2 of quarantine and I am not a happy camper. We are officially canceling my Baby Shower. I know there are worse things out there happening (weddings/loss of money) but I really wanted to celebrate my first baby. I wanted to be showered like everyone else! I cried again last night (this pregnancy makes me cry a lot) because I was sad. I was sad that I won’t get to see family and friends that I don’t see often. I was sad because what my sister and sister n laws have already done for my shower and money is lost. I was sad because I selfishly want cake/cupcakes from my amazing cake lady! I was sad because I wanted to put on a beautiful dress and show off my baby bump. However, with me being sad, I had to be realistic. I can’t have my 93 year old grandmother there getting sick. I can’t have my mom and aunts who are over 65 there getting sick. I can’t even put myself at risk. The smart thing to do is cancel it.
So SCREW you Corona! And people… please stay inside! It sucks but there are people out there having to cancel big milestones because of this. Please just listen and stay inside so this can all be over sooner!
This is our positive. A nice walk, cooking dinner together, and having a good conversation.
What is your positive?
Now it’s Monday and it’s time to work. But before I start, I wanted to share a book that I just finished up.
I wasn’t sure what to read next so I travel to my Book Room and realized there is a book that I haven’t finished from Samantha Christy.
White Lilies by Samantha Christy (Second book in the Mitchell Sister series)
Review: 5 out of 5 stars
What a beautiful book! At first, I didn’t think this book was going to be beautiful. At first, I was silently asking to myself- “Why would Samantha Christy even write something like this?” “What was Samantha thinking when she was writing this book?” FYI, I started reading the first 50 pages back in January. This is a book that I received from Eric for Christmas. I was so mad at first that Samantha would even go this route and write a book like this. So I put the book down. Then because it is written by Samantha, I had to pick it back up again and I am so happy that I did.
I cried! (Damn pregnancy)
I should have known better that Samantha would never write (what I was initially thinking at first) something that awful. No.. she went much further to tear my heart out and make me cry! These Mitchell sisters!!! Here’s to best friends and soul mates!
Check out the synopsis below!
HER SELFLESS ACT.
Her best friend’s husbandS.
A twist of fate.
They wanted her to have their baby.
She was never supposed to fall in love with him
… or was she?
A story about unconditional love, heartbreaking loss, and undying friendship.
Now I sit here on a Monday with work that I need to do and all I can think about is how can I get my hands on the last book in the series- Black Roses?
Stay tuned for what I pick up next.
Remember… in this crazy time to find a positive. I had to really find a positive when we decided to cancel my shower. I know you can find a positive! Tell me all about your positive in the comments below.
Keep on reading!
