three on thursday

Thing One: I think I'm recovering from the past week--the funeral service, the awkward anniversary party, the fire at my sister's apartment building that is now uninhabitable... it was a bit much.

Thing Two: Next Friday my school book group will be meeting to select the slate of new books. I am so excited!

Thing Three: One unusual thing about where I live is that schools begin in August for five weeks and then are released for Potato Harvest Break--which is a two-week break from school. Back in the day, there were so many family farms that relied on manual labor (their own children and other kids) that the family would pull the kids from school to help with the harvest. I am not so sure why we continue having Harvest Break as most kids do not do the manual harvest jobs. It was a rite of passage when I was a kid. Now, not so much. But it's a tradition.

#1 -- What the ever-loving F? I knew about your cousin but what's this anniversary party? And where is your sister now? This is a lot to have plopped on your plate. I hope you're taking care of yourself.
