I am tired today, you guys. That’s what happens when you stay up until 2:30 in the morning binge-watching Jericho with your boyfriend, and then get up at 6:30 to go to the gym/clean/grocery shop all before coming to work for a 13+ hour shift. Woo hoo. But I AM liking Jericho – I’m really late to the party since it’s been cancelled for a long while now, but it’s on Netflix and it’s kind of addictive.
Anyways, blur of a week, as usual. Worked a bunch, didn’t get to read or go online enough, visited my dad, etc. Fun story – it’s like a 45 minute drive to visit my dad and I’ve been there at least 8 times in the last year, but yesterday when my sister was driving and I was navigating, we somehow missed the turn. By 18 miles. We were chatting until I was like “Hmmm we should be there by now…” and brought up the GPS on my phone and realized we needed to do a u-turn. My punishment was having to watch Devil Baby for a couple hours so my sis could go to the gym. Oops.
Visiting with my dad didn’t go great, mainly because we’re trying to come to some sort of agreement with my grandma’s will and it’s all very complicated, and I’m at the point where I want to just step away from it all. I told our lawyer this week that I want nothing to do with any of it, I don’t want anything, and I don’t want to be involved. It’s not like my family’s squabbling over a fortune – it’s basically deciding when/if a house gets sold and how it’s split when it does, and it’s really not worth the stress. I couldn’t care less what happens with the house or any money from it, and I don’t want the responsibility of selling it (which, as the oldest grandchild, that would fall to me). BLAH. Of course, the lawyer is currently telling me to just wait and see how the current negotiations play out, but I’m pretty decided. SO yeah. That was my main stress of the week, but now that I’ve made the decision to cut myself out of the picture, I’m feeling pretty okay about it. And this is probably just TMI, so I’m gonna stop now.
Book stuff! I finished The Corrections already, and I’m so happy to be done with it. I finished Red Seas Under Red Skies (that second Locke Lamora book I won’t stop talking about) and MAN it was soooo good. The third book, The Republic of Thieves, is out now in hardcover and I should be getting my copy from B&N early this week. I can’t wait to start it. I also read Amped by Daniel H. Wilson, which was underwhelming. Aaaand now I’m reading Horns by Joe Hill, and still making my way through The Woman in White.
I’m behind in writing posts and I haven’t even looked at Bloglovin since Friday (because THINGS), so I’m going to spend more of my shift today doing that. How’s your weekend going?
