The Sunday Salon (24)
Last night, we had a party at the house with my family and a bunch of family friends. I enjoyed, had a fantastic time and had a little too much to drink, but I was at home, so it was fine. I didn't feel too hot this morning, but i'm slowly recovering. I have a book club meeting tonight, so I hope that I feel good enough to go.
On to a more serious matter. Last week, my grandmother was at home and suddenly realized that she couldn't see and one side of her face was tingling. She couldn't call 911. A neighbor came to visit her, and they got her to a hospital and ran some tests. We've been waiting to see what the results were. This morning, we found out. She has an artery in the beck of her neck that is 80% blocked. Because of where it is, it is inoperable. They're going to try different medications to see if they can get the blockage to deteriorate, but its like a time bomb just waiting to happen. We're devastated. She was supposed to be flying down in December to come to my graduation and we don't know if that will be possible or what will happen between now and then. Keep my family in your prayers. The more the better. This is going to be pretty rough.
Enough talk about the depressing things.
October TBR vlog you can see some of them there. Anyway, I've been on a book buying ban. I went into BAM to just look, but I saw 3 of the books that I didn't have and they were the last ones, so I HAD to get them. So I did. I broke my ban, but the end result was this beautiful pile of books that you see here. I got to thinking about it, and I started to wonder how many total were in the set, and I looked. I'm still missing 13 of them :[ If my BAM has them in stock, I can get them for $5 a piece, but anywhere else online, then run between $9-$12. I think I might see if I can find any used ones at 2nd and Charles next time I get to go. But I REALLY want to get them all. That picture is pretty, but imagine how gorgeous it will be when I have all of them?!
That's about all I have for today. Going to be making the rounds to everyone else soon. I hope you all have had a good weekend!
