Good morning everyone!
Sarah update: I had a pretty lovely week. Monday I relaxed, did some laundry, and ran some errands. My sis Amanda and baby L came into town Monday night, which was exciting but they got there so late that we kind of all went to sleep soon after. Tuesday I went and had lunch with some girls from LB while Amanda borrowed my car so that she could go car shopping for herself, and by the time she picked me up she had bought a car and was just waiting to go pick it up. Which we then did, and we drove her new car (a black 2001 Honda Civic, in case anyone cares) to The Olive Garden and had a great dinner of soup and salad. And then we did a small bit of shopping before she had to head back home. I stayed at home all day Wednesday and did nothing (I took like two naps) and then my older sister Heather came over for dinner, and we went shopping because we had coupons to use at LB. Plus I bought 5 really cute henley tee shirts at Old Navy, because that store is evil and they were so cheap and adorable. And Thursday guess what I did? Nothing. I read a little bit, I cleaned out the linen closet, and that was about it.
After work on Friday I went to see my father – an event in of itself only because he hasn’t spoken to me or my siblings in like two and a half months. I’m too lazy to go into the whole story, but we talked some stuff out. Nothing’s really better… he’s still an asshole, but I made the decision a long time ago that I want to stay in contact with all of my family, so that I have no regrets later on. So you know, I guess that’s okay.
This coming week is going to be a lot less fun, because it’s the week that the temp co-worker is quitting and we’re going to start training a new temp. Unfortunately until this new temp is trained and we’re sure he can be on his own, it means some 60+ hour work weeks for me. I’m hoping that he’s all trained and we’re happy with his progress within a month, because I scheduled my vacation for later next month and there’s no way I’m changing that. Oh well… at least this’ll be a few really good paychecks, right?
Bookish update: Well, first off I feel like I was a very lazy blogger this week. I didn’t post a lot, and while I scrolled through my Google Reader I was really lazy about commenting. And I was hardly on Twitter. I suppose I was going through an internet-detox after ABEA, lol. So you know, sorry if you missed me
In other news, I finished Feed in the beginning of last week and holy crap was it fantastic. And then I finished Deadline, the second book of the trilogy, yesterday and it was also fantastic, and I’m going to start the last book, Blackout, today. I have been DYING to talk to people about these books.
And then it came to me in a dream. Actually, it came to me at The Distillery, but anyways – I had an idea. And if you guys seem into it, then let’s do it. I’m thinking about hosting my first ever readalong of Feed. My review seems to have gotten a few people excited and wanting to read it, and if I hosted a readalong for it then we could all read it at the same time (re-read for me, obviously) and more importantly we could talk about it! Cause that’s what readalongs are for! It would be pretty laid back but SO MUCH FUN.
If you’re interested in a Feed readalong then leave me a comment saying so, and please mention what month you’d prefer it in – July or August. If let’s say at least… 5 people are willing to join then it’s ON! I’m more in favor of July because I’m impatient, but I understand if you guys already have readalongs or something planned for next month. So you know… let me know!
