Good morning and happy Sunday 🙂
Holy frick, you guys – I know that I was complaining about being busy before, but I feel like lately it’s been EVEN busier. I’m now doing 10 to 12 hour-long days at work, and it just leaves pretty much no time for anything else. And I haven’t had downtime at work in weeks. BUT I really like the stuff that I’m learning how to do at work, so at least I’m not miserable at work. I’m just exhausted when I get home. So, once again – sorry for not being around. I have posts in my Bloglovin reader that are like 2 weeks old, and I’m slowly going through and reading posts. I’ll probably be apologizing for this on a weekly basis, until we get a temp to replace me at work and train him/her.
But ANYWAYS, let’s bullet-point a few things:
I learned how to do my first Excel formula this week. I realize this probably isn’t very cool or exciting, but I’m a nerd and I love making spreadsheets and learning different ways to use them.
- I’m disappointed in the newest (fifth) season of Cougar Town so far. Really, the two first seasons were the best and funniest – once the seasons got cut from like 25 episodes to 15, things were rushed, and there’s not as much continuity (seriously, some guest characters just disappeared without it ever really being explained), and the characters have become caricatures of themselves, in a weird way. And I LOATHE the Travis-Laurie storyline and hope that ends. I still love it and will watch all the new episodes they ever make, but yeah. Disappointing.
- I drank a LOT of wine this weekend. It was game night on Friday (and drinking was probably a poor choice, because I had been up since 5:30 and drinking makes me sleepy so I was definitely trying to doze whenever it wasn’t my turn), and then my friend came over yesterday to watch some Cougar Town and OBVIOUSLY that called for wine.
- I went to my sister’s Birthday / Premier Designs party on Thursday (Happy Birthday again sis!) and I said the saddest. thing. ever. Someone asked me what I was currently reading and I said “nothing”. I finished a book on Monday or Tuesday and then it just wasn’t worth starting anything else because things were so hectic and I just didn’t have the focus.
- I got my first big overtime check this week, and a large chunk of that went to buying books… I ordered Saga Vol. 2, Chew Vol. 3, and Dr. Horrible and Other Horrible Stories from Amazon and those should be here on Tuesday. And then I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday and bought The Martian by Andy Weir, Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb, and Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell. I’m a big believer in treating yourself for working a lot.
And that kind of brings me to my main exciting thing – I only have to work 3 days this week because then it’s my birthday and I took time off so I’ll have a 4-day weekend! And I know exactly what I want to do on my birthday – I want to read all day.
So, if you’re around on Thursday and feel like reading, you can totally join me in my birthday readathon. It’s not a formal thing – I might not even do a blog post, because let’s face it – I’m lazy. But I WILL be reading and eating snacks and tweeting and Instagramming with the hashtag of #bdayreadathon, so feel free to jump in at any time.
And now I’m going to do laundry and jump into The Martian, which I hope it as awesome as I’ve been hearing so that it sucks me in and I end up reading the whole damn thing today. Hope everyone’s having a good weekend!
