Sarah update: The week literally flew by, and left me so exhausted that I was kind of looking forward to work on Friday, just because it meant some alone time and the chance to read a bit. Monday lots of my family came over for dinner and to Amanda and L and that was awesome. Tuesday Amanda & me ran errands and hung out then it was game night. Wednesday Amanda left around noon and then my older sis Heather came over when she got out of work – we made turkey burgers for dinner and watched Crazy Stupid Love. And Thursday I went tipsy-movie-watching with my friend – she made us amaretto sours and put them into water bottles, and we drank them while we watched Magic Mike. So fun!
Obviously all of that was fun and it was nice to be social… mostly. I’m definitely looking forward to more alone time this week, I hope. Monday I’m going to an amusement park with Heather and my niece and nephew (Emma & Josh), and Monday night Amanda and L are coming back into town AGAIN. Those two are going with me to visit Dad on Tuesday morning, and then I think I’m watching L while Amanda goes to get her hair done, and then I have to clean the house for game night and they’ll leave at some point. Wednesday during the day is mine – ALL MINE.
Wednesday through Friday is actually the me and the honeyman’s 5-Year Anniversary together! Yay! He has Thursday & Friday off from work, and this week is my vacation, so we’ll have a whole FOUR DAYS OFF TOGETHER! I’m very excited And obviously I am a very, very lucky girl.
Bookish update: *sigh* Like I said, I didn’t have time to read until freaking Friday. It’s very depressing. I’m still reading Great Expectations, and enjoying it. I’m almost done with a kids / YA book called The Emerald Atlas – I’ll probably finish that today and post a review sometime this week. And I’m still reading The Graveyard Book for the readalong. I bought a few books this week… a romance, a sci-fi / fantasy book that looked fun, and the trade paperback copy of the 6th Outlander book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I’m hoping to read like a fiend within these next 12 days that I have off. While this coming week is looking a little busy already, the week after that I am refusing to make plans with anyone, dammit. I’ll be a hermit, but at least I’ll be reading!
Oh, and I’m working on mini-readathon plans too. If you happen to be reading this and happen to have an opinion, would you rather have 5 mini-challenges spaced 3 hours apart, or 4 spaced 4 hours apart? It’s July 29th, don’t forget!
And that’s about it. I’m going to go on my lunch now and then come back and read and blog for the last 6 hours, and then I’m FREEEEEE! I won’t have to work again until July 27th. THAT IS SO AWESOME.
Hope everyone has a beautiful week!
