Goodย afternoon peoples of the blogosphere! This is just going to be a quick update, because I’ve been posted just about every day this week. Sick of me yet? ๐Ÿ™‚

With the exception of having to work an extra shift on Tuesday, not much happened this week. I think that lack of sleep due to that extra shift ran me downย a bit, because I felt like I was getting a cold on Wednesday and Thursday, but I seemed to have successfully fought it off. For now, anyways. So on all my days off I pretty much laid around the house and read and took naps, and eventually forced myself to do some cleaning and laundry, and that was about it. Exciting, I know. OH but we watched the newest episode of Defiance on Monday and that was exciting because two characters that I’ve totally been hoping would hook up finally did and I couldn’t stop smiling! And we watched The Office finale this week and I cried a lot and now I feel like re-watching ALL of The Office. That probably won’t happen anytime soon because I’m watching too many other things, but hopefully I’ll get around to it eventually.

Also this week,ย I ran 2 miles on the treadmill without stopping! (For me, 2 miles = 24 mins right now). So that’s pretty awesome. *high fives myself*

This coming week is busy because I on all of my 3 days off, I’m watching my niece Emma in the mornings and then taking her to school. She’s a cool kid so that’s alright, it just makes my week a bit more cramped. I might even see if she wants to spend the night at my place one night – she’s never slept over anywhere before so it would be fun.

Bookish update: This week thanks mostly to the Bout of Books readathon, I read my ass off and I finishedย 6 books – The Book of Lost Things, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me, The Professor and the Madman, George’s Secret Key to the Universe, Lord of the Flies, and Prey (by Michael Crichton). I have some serious issues with Lord of the Fliesย – when I finished the book I just kind of shrugged, but as I was thinking later and writing down some notes for the review, the more I realized how much I didn’t like it. Yesterday after finishing that damn book, I couldn’t really decide what I felt like reading. I went home and looked at my books and still couldn’t decide… and then when I was about to leave for work I grabbed Prey by Michael Crichton so that’s what I read at work today. It turned out to be the perfect pick, because I practically devoured it and was able to finish it right after I got home from work!

OK I’m gonna go get ready for date night now… I’m soooooo hungry.

Hope you guys are having an awesome weekend! What do you have planned for this week?

  1. 2 miles in 24 minutes is amazing!! I mean, I say this because I can only travel 2 miles in about double that time cause I can only walk, but STILL. I am impressed!

    I am soooo intrigued by your Lord of the Flies thoughts. Because I read it AGES ago, and I still kind of have the feeling of Not Liking it, except that I kind of thought the last couple of pages were amazing? But apart from that… Yeah. No.

  2. 6 books… You are a reading machine, girl! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m glad the readathon was successful for you. I think if I’d also crammed in all the reviews on the read books, I’d be totally a squeezed lemon by now… But I’m kinda looking forward to writing reviews next week (or during next weeks, knowing my pace…) That picture of Gabby and book is nice and reminds me of this http://theoatmeal.com/comics/cat_vs_internet only in your case it’s Cat vs book ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s an all-girls muddy obstacle course in Buffalo, it looks really fun! So you know, if you wanna do it too that’d be cool ๐Ÿ™‚
