Sarah update: For once I’m actually typing this up at home instead of at work! In all fairness I do still have to work today, but it’ll be to 2 pm to 2 am shift instead of my usual 2 am to 2 pm. Why, you ask? Because we’re training the temp still. Hopefully after this week he’ll be ready to be on his own, because I have a lot of plans for the following week – I took next Sunday off because next Saturday is my girl’s night with my friend Doni and we plan on drinking A LOT. (But no tequila, we’re still mad at it.) It’s been over 3 years at least since we had a girl’s night, and we’ve been planning it for over a month now. Woo hoo! Also, I plan to have Wednesday (4th of July) off because I would normally have it off anyways and since it’s the ONLY holiday the honeyman actually likes, we’re gonna go do stuff. So yeah, I’m not really willing to do much OT after this week and there’s not many other people to do it, so hopefully the temp learns real quick.
Annoyingly, I believe they have him coming in for his first 12-hour night shift today – great to get him used to the hours, but stupid since Sundays are insanely slow. I’ve thought up some stuff I can have him practice, but otherwise it’s going to be hours of making polite conversation while wishing I could read instead. *sigh*
Anyways, this week has been interesting… I suppose I should share it with you now, so I can complain and stuff later. My dad is in jail (again) and probably going to be there for a few years. I’ll save my whole dad-story for another day, but obviously he’s kind of a crap person (talk about understatements) but you know, he’s my dad so I love him by default, even when I wish I hated him cause it would make my life so much easier. Anyways, he did some real stupid shit earlier in the week and yeah… he fucked up. Dumbass. Anyways, I’m actually kind of… not unhappy about him being put away for a few years. I’ll visit him every so often and when he’s locked up he actually reads and watches movies (which he never ever does normally) so it’s kind of nice, cause we’ll have stuff to talk about. He was in jail once before and it was kind of the best relationship I’d ever had with my dad – he’d read books and tell me about them, I could suggest books, he would joke and laugh, etc. Also, it’s so ridiculous that he’s screwed up in such a major way that it’s actually kind of funny.
So that was my big drama of the week. Let me point out that my dad is the bad apple of the family – all the rest of us are normal people who aren’t drunks. He’s a shit person, and I’ve kind of accepted that he’s never really going to change. So you know… I guess I’m trying to say don’t judge me on his actions, please? Although if you choose to, then okay screw you and bye. The only reason I’m mentioning this all now is so that I can randomly mention it in my Sarah Sunday posts or tweet about the situation and you guys won’t be totally clueless. And I don’t like censoring myself on such a big drama-ish event.
Oh, the other big drama of the week was that Gabby ran across my face in my sleep and left a big scratch on my forehead.
Hmmmm… what else happened this week? I got to hang out with my mom – the honeyman and I went to a bar with her for dinner on Monday, which was fun since I never go to bars. And they made good amaretto sours. And then on Tuesday I ran some errands with her and we shopped at Lane Bryant. It’s nice, I feel like I hardly get to really chill with my mom lately, cause she’s been busy and I’m also busy as well as a homebody.
Bookish update: I finished two books this week, Blackout by Mira Grant and The Bungalow by Sarah Jio. I’ve started reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and I’m only two chapters in, but it’s kind of funny so far. And I’m going to read something else too for those moments when I just can’t focus on a big classic, either A Wrinkle in Time or Jurassic Park. Not sure which yet.
Also, starting this week there’s an adult reading thing going on at my library – you sign up online, and then you log the books you read and I think each one you read is an entry for the weekly prize, which is gift cards to Subway, Wegmans, Best Buy, Hess, etc. Anyways it sounds very cool and I’m excited to sign up.
OK and now I shall stop rambling because the honeyman and I are going to go out for breakfast before I have to get ready for work. Expect lots of tweets from me tonight while I combat my boredom.
Hope everyone has a great week!
