Sarah Sunday!

Hoooorraayyyyyy!!! My horrible work week is over! (Well, almost – I have about 5 hours left. But it’s Sunday and really slow and I’m basically just reading and blogging. And re-watching season 2 of Cougar Town… yeah, my job is great on weekends. Too bad the weekdays suck so much.)

Working 64 hours, plus watching my niece for 2 mornings, was rough. I was only getting about 4 hours of sleep a night for most of the week. And I had to spend 31 hours of my work week training the new temp, who is hella weird (see my tweets from those days) but as long as he shows up for his shifts, I don’t really care.Β SeriouslyΒ though, I can’t take working with people who start vomiting their emotions about their recent break-up and their current life path all over the place. For real, don’t do that to people you just met. No one cares. THIS is why I really appreciate the fact that for the most part, I’m alone while I work.

I am SO looking forward to having 3 days off. To getting back to the gym (haven’t had time to go in the past 2 weeks – when I did have free time, I tried to take naps), hanging out with my honeyman, cleaning, chilling with Gabby, and generally not leaving the house unless I have to. I think I should stock up on some wine, too. Oh and tonight is date night! Looking forward to just going out to eat with the honeyman and then maybe relaxing at home. I hope the weather cools down a bit so I can wear one of my skirts.

Bookish update: I finished 3 books this week- The Case for Mars by Robert Zubrin, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself by Jen Kirkman, and the graphic novel The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks by Max Brooks.

Reviews for these will be coming, but I’m not 100% sure when – I’m planning to start the switch to self-hosting at WordPress.org tomorrow, and my blog might be unavailable for a couple days while that’s happening. My url (www.sarahsaysread.com) should remain the same though, so once the switch is made andΒ it’s up and running, my blog should still show up in your readers. I’ll do a “testing” post, and if you see that go up, can you comment on it and let me know that it worked okay? I don’t know if email subscriptions will be affected or not, so if you get emails from my blog, you may want to bookmark my blog or something just in case. Sorry for the disruption, but I think this switch will be really good thing.

On a related note – I got an email to check out the website BookLikes the other day and looked at it. Is it basically a bookish Tumblr with a shelving feature? Cause that sounds kind of awesome. Is anyone else using it? Thoughts?

Okay ya’ll, I’m off to go read for a few hours. How have you guys been? Plans for this week? Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    1. Thanks πŸ™‚

      I’m really nervous about switching to WP.org, mainly b/c I already own my own domain and I’m not looking forward to figuring out how to transfer it by myself. I wish I could pay someone to do it for me, but it’s $130+ and I just don’t want to spend that kind of money. I’m sure once it’s all sorted out I’ll like it fine, but I’ll do a pros and cons type of post later in the month to let everyone know!

  1. So glad you’re workweek from hell is over!! 64 hours is brutal and though your niece is really cute, I can imagine is not being the most convenient week for watching her πŸ˜‰
    And lol, I totally loved your tweets about the new temp! πŸ˜€ You’re absolutely right, you just don’t start telling people all of that personal stuff, it’s really weird… But very funny for me πŸ™‚
    I hadn’t heard of BookLikes before, it sounds kinda fun though!

    1. Thanks for tweeting with me that day, Daisy. Sharing it with Twitter was the one way I kept from laughing right at him, and from being super bored.

      I hope you join BookLikes! It’s definitely a fun site, and I’m hoping me talking about it more will get more people to be a part of it.
