Ever since I cracked a bone in my hip, which still isn't fully healed, I've also been having some other health problems, mostly related to my lungs & breathing. That and some family drama has found me thinking a lot about things like life and the past lately. I happened to see an episode of that TV show where people build a new home for a family in some kind of crisis. The only reason I watched it was because the little 9-year old boy in the family has brittle bone disease (Osteogenesis imperfecta). This disease has some similarities to mine but can be much more severe. I thought about my life growing up, what this little boy's life might be like, the obstacles he might encounter and the help he'll hopefully find. I also thought about other children with disabilities growing up with the same thoughts and dreams as kids who aren't disabled. So I started a blog, I'm Amy and I'm Disabled. It doesn't have a shape or real purpose to it, yet! For now I'm posting about things that come to mind. If anyone has any ideas about how to let people know I've started this blog I'd appreciate your help!
I haven't been reading that much with my focus being elsewhere. I have several books that I've just finished or I'm just about to finish as well as several review I still haven't written! Ack! I am finishing up Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather. I always wanted to read this and Molly's The Classic Bribe gave me the reason I needed! I'm in the middle of The Sweetness of Tears by Nafisi Haji and I just finished The Reservoir by John Milliken Thompson. Finally, I plan to start Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman.
What are you reading and enjoying this Sunday?
