Good morning there lovelies! The suckiness of April continues!
Well, I suppose that this week wasn’t ALL bad. I got stuck at work on Monday night until 4 AM because the temp called in for his shift, so that kind of sucked. Tuesday night while flossing one of my fillings came out. I didn’t even know that could happen. Haven’t gone to the dentist yet to get it fixed, but hopefully will soon. It doesn’t really hurt yet, it’s just one more thing costing me money, you know? Oh and on Wednesday my cd player in the kitchen stopped working. I’m clearly on a roll here.
BUT there was lots of good stuff too this week. Wednesday was my friend’s birthday, and we took her and her hubby out to dinner and did presents and cake and stuff. On Thursday I went out and filled out an application for the library (they’re not hiring at the moment, but still) and I also filled out an application for the local B&N who IS hiring right now, so I’m going to try to check in next week and see if they reviewed it. So yeah, wish me luck there! Cause if I’m going to get a second job I’d REALLY prefer it to be a bookish one.
On Saturday I did the Color Vibe 5K with the honeyman, my sister Heather, and her kiddos. (Note the really bad pictures above – just FYI, I had lotsa layers on. There’s no excusing how messy my hair was though…) The weather was TERRIBLE – it was in the 40’s and really windy and it freaking snowed! It was still a lot of fun and the first time I’ve ever done anything like that. After the color run the honeyman and I went home, ate Taco Bell, showered all the color off, took a nice nap, and then went grocery shopping. It ended up being a really nice day. I totally can’t wait for the day when I have weekends off again.
This week looks to be pretty busy, sadly. I only have 3 days off, and on one of those I’m hosting a Premier jewelry party, and on another day we have a lot of errands and appointments and stuff.
Bookish update: I finished 3 books this week – at least my reading has been good this month! I finished Nexus by Ramez Naam, The Disaster Diaries by Sam Sheridan, and The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy.
I’m now reading My Beloved Brontosaurus by Brian Switek, which is interesting so far even though I’m only about 30 pages into it. I’ve been on a non-fiction kick lately. I’m also hoping to start The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller this week.
There are TWO readathons this week, that I’m going to try my hardest to participate in even though this week looks a bit crazy. The first is on Wednesday the 24th, and it’s the Weekday Readathon hosted at Love At First Book. That’s the day I have lots of errands to run, but I’m going to try to read before and after (and maybe during!) all my running around that day. And of course next Saturday is the Dewey Readathon, and I’ll be reading along on that day even though I work all weekend. I need to start assembling my readathon book piles!
Are ya’ll participating in either one? You really should! Even if it’s only for a small part of the day, readathons so fun 🙂
Okay peeps, I’m out. Hope everybody is having a spanking-good weekend!
