Sarah update: Overall, not a very eventful week, at least until the end.
Well, first off as of Tuesday I’m no longer visiting my dad or taking his calls, at least until he gets sentenced and transferred elsewhere (I don’t know if I clarified before, but he’s currently in jail pending a trial – mainly for a domestic dispute – because he’s an idiot and didn’t take the 3-year deal that was offered to him.) In a nutshell, he called me twice this week, and both times tried to argue with me and hung up on me both fucking times. So, that’s that. I’m not putting more money on my phone to take his stupid collect calls so he can try to ask me to do stuff he should be doing (like contacting his lawyers), and then he hangs up on me? Screw that. I’m done. I just do not need this crap. So, I told him to write to me when he knows where he’ll be getting transferred. I’m still really angry, but part of me is glad that he pushed it to point where I could say fuck it and just stop talking to him. He’s just too annoying to deal with, at least while this trial is hanging over his head.
ANYHOO. So that was the main event of this week, which made me all stabby but has also made me life easier and freed up some more of my time every week. Other than that things were pretty slow up until yesterday. After I got out of work the honeyman and I went out to Petco & Target to do some shopping. We finally got a collar & little tag for Gabby, because if she ever manages to get out of the apartment again somehow, I don’t want people to think she’s a stray. And hopefully they’d be nice enough to call us, since our numbers are on the back of her tag. She HATES it. Poor thing, there’s a little bell so she makes a lot of noise while she runs around and she can’t be all sneaky. (We’re keeping the bell on it for now, because it’ll alert us to when she’s jumping up places where she’s not supposed to be.) She spent most of the night attacking her own neck and succeeded in getting it off twice. Hoping she just gets used to it. But until then seeing her get all angry and fight with herself is hilarious. Poor thing.
And finally, after 4 freaking months of working on it my brother-in-law finally finished fixing the honeyman’s car. Hooray! Of course there’s always the chance that something may go wrong with it again, but it’s running for now and that’s all that matters. We have to take it to get inspected this week and hopefully it passes. We’re still going to try to get him a new car in the next couple months, but at least he has his car back again to drive until then, and hopefully he’ll be able to sell it to at least make back the money we spent on parts.
So you know, good news.
Bookish update: Well, I finished reading Three Roads to Quantum Gravity this week and that was interesting but not the best. And now I’ve started White Raven, a book I’m reading for a TLC blog tour on this coming Thursday. It’s interesting so far, but I hate the pressure of reviewing books this way. I think I’m going to take a break from tour books for a while, not that I do a ton anyways.
Most exciting is that the Bout of Books weeklong readathon starts tomorrow! My work schedule is a little wonky this week, but I should manage to squeeze in a good amount of reading time. I’m going to do my goal post tonight.
So, that’s it for me this week! How are you guys doing?
Have a lovely week
