Crap this week went by kind of fast. Slow down, October.
Whenever I have 4 days off (from my regular job), I think that I’ll be able to relax and get a ton of reading and blogging done, and somehow it never works out that way. I worked extra hours at Second Job this week, I visited friends, I went to a Premier Designs jewelry thingy with my older sister (she really wants me to sign up to be a jewelry seller, and annoyingly, I’m considering it… maybe in the next year, not right now), I hung out with my younger sister and watched 2 Broke Girls, I shopped, and yesterday we went to Stephanie’s wedding & reception (which was beautiful and fun and Steph & Jerry are an adorable couple). PHEW. Also I got to wear some of the skinny jeans I bought the week before, and you can see the patterned ones up above – aren’t they cute? Yes, yes they are. AND I got a lovely note and Walden from Laura this week. Well, actually it turns out it arrived like over a week ago but no one at my mom’s house told me, but still, yay! It put a big smile on my face 🙂 Thank youuuu Laura!
Also, I didn’t talk about it too much online because you know, creepers, but the honeyman was away for 5 days for job training, and that sucked a lot. Besides being busier than I would’ve liked, that’s another reason I wasn’t online that much. I was being a bit sulky. Home just isn’t the same when he’s not sleeping next to me every night. I missed him like crazy. (Also, isn’t that picture of him and Gabby the best? My new fave.)
This coming week is going to be kind of crazy – I’m supposed to work about 60 hours at my regular job, 4 at the second job, and have a Girl Day with a friend of mine eating jalapeno poppers, drinking wine, and watching Cougar Town in our pj’s. Actually, that last part sounds pretty awesome though. Somewhere in there I need to fit in a couple of trips to the gym, because I only went once this week and I feel like crap about it. The only plus side to this crazy week is that hopefully I’ll get a lot of reading done at work. Hopefully.
Bookish update: I only managed to re-read You Suck by Christopher Moore, which I read mostly in a day and haven’t reviewed yet. I’m now reading The Returned by Jason Mott, which ideally I’ll be able to finish today at work, and I’m also hoping to start The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen – readalong, woot woot! – and Six Easy Pieces by Richard Feynman today (yeeeeea 16-hour shift today).
Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is this Saturday! And I’m doing it, and planning to read SO HARD. I got some short books & graphic novels from the library, but I’ll probably focus mostly on my October TBR pile / RIP reads. I’m excited. Readathons are always a good time.
Aaaand I’m out! How was your week? Are you doing the readathon?
