Sunday Cup of... (#2)

So what is this Sunday Cup of... that you are posting? Well it's a mash up of
The Sunday Post Hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?  Hosted by: Book Journey
Mailbox Monday Located at: Mailbox Monday
Rambling Monday Hosted by: The Realm of Books

Basically it's a weekly post where I talk about books, bloggy things, and possibly not so bloggy things. It'll be a weekly wrap up / news bulletin type deal. Sound good? If you want to link to your own weekly posts in the comments feel free.

In the News-

It's been a stressful week to say the least, we (as in me and my co-workers) got a talking to at work. My daughter's b-day was Tuesday and I had to make Poke-ball cupcakes for my daughter's class. Which turned out so-so, I never claimed to be a baker...
My son's dentist called Thursday afternoon to tell us he is finally scheduled for the surgery I've been trying to get him for over a year. Down side to this is it's Monday and he needed a pre-op physical. It was insane, getting him to the Dr Friday then trying to get them to get their stuff together to get the paperwork to the dentist who had to send it to the hospital. Can you say headache? Because I was ready for a stiff drink after everything was said and done. We did manage to get it all straightened out and he will be getting his teeth fixed on Monday. Yay? No he's going to be miserable.
We're hoping we can get my daughter in for her MRI and Chest X-ray that day too. She was complaining of chest pains, so we told the Dr. I got the orders in Dec, they are walk-in paper that we could do when we had time (ha), but with the weather, her being sick, work, the Holidays, the move, and etc. I haven't been able to get her up there yet. Thankfully she hasn't had any problems since we moved here, I think it might have been an allergy to something at our old place. Anyway fingers crossed we'll be able to get everything done and it won't be horrible.
