Alriiiiight, I’m at work and I only have 15.5 hours left! I agreed to take on a 16-hour shift today, cause you know. Overtime. And let’s face it, I could use the extra reading time. Yesterday during my work shift, I watched Oz The Great and Powerful. It was bad. I’m glad I never went to the theaters to see it even though I was so excited about it. Damn. Have you guys seen it?
This week has basically been a big blur of children and books. I watched my nephew Josh and niece Emma on Monday- Josh totally punked me by playing with his iPod in his room and hiding it whenever I checked on him. Sneaky 8 year-old, he wasn’t supposed to be playing with electronics until his mom got home. I can’t believe I fell for it. Anyways, that was a distracting morning, but then I got to go in my sis’s pool that afternoon. FINALLY got to use my bathing suit I bought like 3 months ago. And then I watched my nephew DB on Wednesday, which wasn’t too bad but kind of exhausting, as always. 2 year-olds suck. Like I love him, but dude I can’t wait till he’s older. He does say “meeno” for Nemo (for Finding Nemo) which is pretty darn cute.
And other than that, I pretty much ignored cleaning and packing in favor and laying around the house reading and blogging and tweeting in the spirit of Bout of Books. Even the honeyman read with me, because he found a new book he’s really into. Correction: I found a book I thought he’d like, and he’s really into it (Going Home by A. American – what a silly alias, but it’s a survivalist novel). I also ate a whole ton this week and only went to the gym twice. But Los Gallos and Red Robin are both delicious and I have no regrets! In fact I think we’re going to Los Gallos again in a few days with friends and I’m still psyched. You guys do not even understand how delicious it is. So yeah, baby-sitting, reading, and eating – there’s my week.
Of course, I’m now at the point where we’re moving in less than a week and a little part of me is spazzing at the amount of packing still left, which I’m sure just seems like a lot in my head but really isn’t that bad. Either way, this week is going to be crazy busy and my only real internet or reading time will be when I’m at work later in the week. But I’m excited to move, at least just to have it over with. Moving sucks.
Bookish update: So this week I finished Rules of Civility by Amor Towles, The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig, Relish by Lucy Knisley, and True Grit by Charles Portis. I’m almost done with Self-Inflicted Wounds by Aisha Tyler, and then I’m debating what to start next. It’s between The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch, Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff, and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. I guess it’ll depend on how much time I have left in my shift today. But… I’m leaning towards Stormdancer. Japanese steampunk! Color me intrigued.
Alright ya’ll, I guess that’s it. How has your week been?
