Good morning everybody!

So this past week flew by – I only had 3 days off and they went by way too quickly. I did a ton of cleaning and laundry, which actually felt kind of good because I was so busy with work before that everything was a mess and it was nice just to have everything neat and organized again. We also told our apartment complex this week that we’re not resigning our lease, so we’re going to be moving at the end of August.  So now I have to start going through what we need to get rid of, what to put in storage (we’ll be moving to a one-bedroom instead of a two-bedrom), and sometime soon we’ll have to start apartment hunting. Man I hate moving. On the plus side, it gives me an excuse to re-catalog my books eventually – and yeah, that’s exciting to me. Because I’m a huge, huge nerd. 

Anyways, other than that nothing very eventful happened this week. My order from Printstagram came and I love the teeny photos. I want to order the Minibook next, which is two tiny photobooks with 50 photos each for only $12. I may be a little obsessed right now, but it’s so fun to be able to print my Instagram pics! I’ve also been watching a lot of tv this week – we finished Dexter season 7 (holy crap, cannot wait till season 8 comes out on DVD next year), and I’ve been catching up on The Mindy Project, which is suprisingly funny. The honeyman ordered me season 1 of Happy Endings and that came this week, and I’m going to try to watch some of it today. Gabby has been really sweet and weird this week, and everytime I’m at home and I have some down time to lay down and read, she hops up on my lap and goes to sleep. It is the sweetest. And then there’s times like last night, when I’m getting ready to leave for work and she runs out of the bedroom, jumps up and kicks off of my back, and runs into the kitchen because she’s feeling all playful and hyper. Weirdo 🙂

Bookish update: Not a whole lot. I read 2 books this week; The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke, and Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. Both were surprisingly good. And even though I’m trying to restrain my book buying habits right now because I know we’re moving, I splurged and bought Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries by Neil deGrasse Tyson.

I’m not sure what I’m going to start next… either You by Austin Grossman, or Ex-Patriots by Patrick Clines. Hmmmm…

So how have you guys been? Anything exciting planned for this week?

  1. Know what? I adore these Sarah Sunday posts. Know what else? I wish there was a day of the week that started with a J because I would rip you off so fast your head would spin, ha!

    Moving can blow. But it’s also super fun to set up a new place. And yes, you can reorganize your books, yay! Good luck on the apartment hunting 🙂

    1. I just sat here for several minutes trying to think of a “J” name for a meme… You could make up your own day and call your posts “Jenniday Updates” or something! That would be funny 🙂 If you say Jenniday enough times, it starts to sound like a real word.

    1. Thank ya 🙂 It’s one of the times my neat-freak side of me comes out and has fun, because as I pack the books I write/type down what’s going into each box (I number them so I know which is which) and when I unpack, I catalog them as I shelve them.

      It’s a wonder the honeyman puts up with me, lol.

  2. Haha Gabby 😀 Cats are the weirdest (and the bestest). Man I wish you a lot of strength for the moving, I’ve moved quite a lot in the recent decade and it’s always so stressful. But yes, good thing is it gives you the perfect opportunity to catalogue books and get rid of the clutter in general!

    1. Cats ARE the weirdest, but man I love that little furball.

      I am going to be getting rid of SO much clutter! Especially because the honeyman is a BIT of a hoarder, so moving always gives me a good chance to throw out random junk that we’ve accumulated.

  3. Good luck with your move because, seriously, moving SUCKS. (Please pronounce “sucks” like Penny from Happy Endings, as that is how I said it in my head once you mentioned the DVD.)

    1. LOL. Yes it does suck. Ugh.

      Buuuuut hopefully after living in a smaller, cheaper apartment for a year or so, we’ll be about ready to buy a house! That’s the plan, anyways. Just gotta keep my eye on the prize.

  4. Aw, I love your apartment, I’m sad you’re moving. Unless you move closer to me. Than I’m cool with that. 🙂

    You know you can print instagram prints right to walgreens and pick them up in an hour? They print them 4×4. I’ve done it before and it’s awesome. You know, instant gratification.;o)

    1. LOL, no we’ll probably still be in Greece sis. I’m sad about moving too, I’m gonna miss our apartment a lot.

      I did NOT know about printing Instagram pics to Walgreens! How does that even work? I’ve ordered Shutterfly pics before and picked them up at Walgreens…

      1. So you download the Walgreens app, click Photo, Click “Print from Instagram” and BAM. It’s sweet. You can also print from facebook the same way.

  5. I love re-cataloguing my books, too. It’s fun to organize them! On the shelf and in spreadsheets. 🙂

    Oh, and I love The Mindy Project! It’s such a cute show!

    Like

    1. Yes! Even purging my books, while kind of sad, is fun because it’s giving me an excuse to look through them all and re-arrange them 🙂

      The Mindy Project is surprisingly funny! Even the honeyman likes it, and he doesn’t take to sitcoms as easily as I do.
