Weekend Reading 5.11.24

By Kate Riley May 11, 2024

My mom was in the hospital for emergency surgery on Monday and it had us all very worried, there was a chance she wouldn’t make it but thankfully she came out of surgery. She’s alright and now in the process of healing and I’m thankful I’ll be here with her on Mother’s Day.

I flew to Las Vegas to console my Dad and assist around the house, that’s the reason it was quiet on the blog this week but I’ll be flying back home Monday and back to regular content when I return. :)
