Sarah Sunday – Letting you know I’m alive

Gabby, my shorter hair, Sharknado, a pile of books I still haven’t finished…

 

Hi guys!

I haven’t posted in over two weeks, which is just ridiculously insane and sad. I mean, my reasons are valid (so.much.WORK.), but still. I really miss ya’ll. I don’t even want to know what my Bloglovin reader looks like right now. (OK I couldn’t resist – it’s almost at 600 unread posts. Fuck.)

 

Here’s a look at what my weeks have been like, Monday through Friday –

  • Get up around 4, 4:15 AM and get ready for work
  • Get to work around 5:30, 5:45 AM
  • Work all day – trying to get the million things that I need to done, in addition to training two new people
  • Get home around 7:30 or 8 PM
  • Make some sort of food, hang out with the honeyman, and crash around 9:30 or 10 PM
  • Repeat

And weekends are a short blur of grocery shopping, cleaning, doing laundry, and trying to get to the gym at least once. I have at leastΒ 3 more weeks of this. We’re estimating about a month to train the temps completely… which means a lot of 12 to 14 hour days for me. And most days I barely have time to get up and pee, much less hop online or on my phone to do bloggy things. This really sucks… but if all goes well and the temps work out, then in a month I’ll be on more normal human hours and hopefully will be able to get things back on track. I really miss reading, and blogging, and chatting with you guys.

I haven’t really finished an actual book this month, except that I re-read Outlander and now I’m re-reading Dragonfly in Amber. Graphic novels are nice too, but my time has been limited for even that much reading. I DID splurge last night… and ordered myself a Kindle Paperwhite. And 4 graphic novels. I have to reward myself a little for this overtime, right?

The honeyman has been really awesome. He took care of allllll the cleaning this week so that we could host game night on Friday (which consisted of us ordering pizza and watching older episodes of The Walking Dead). He’s been pitching in with laundry when he can, and ordering food when I’m too tired to cook, and just generally been really sweet (though he does hate me working so much… but what are ya gonna do, ya know?)

seen Sharknado

We watched Sharknado last weekend. You guys – it was the best worst thing I’ve ever seen. The graphics, acting, and plot were all TERRIBLE, but so terrible that I couldn’t stop laughing. There’s a part where the storm unhinges a Ferris wheel, and OF COURSE it starts rolling down the street, because why not, and OF COURSE it crushes people, and it was just so so bad. But in a stupidly great way.

Yes.

Yes.

And that’s about all the updating-time I have. I gotta get chicken tacos going in the crockpot before running out and doing things with my sister. I just wanted to let ya’ll know that I haven’t disappeared completely. Hope you’re all doing really well.

  1. OMG, Sharknado! How have I never heard of this? I was literally like, “Haha, she’s kidding, that’s not a thing…” THEN I GOOGLED IT AND IT IS A THING! The trailer made me LOL so much, I think I might have to watch this movie, like, yesterday. Even the title makes me laugh. Sharknadooooo. SEE, HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT WITHOUT LAUGHING?! Ohhhh, my week is made. *wanders off chuckling* *looks out of window cautiously, just in case*

    On a side note, what other films could we make work? KITTENNADO. I’d watch that. FROGNADO. That would be awesome. LIONADO. Sounds like a new fizzy drink. SHEEPNADO. For the particularly stupid viewer. CHIPMUNKNADO. That’d be a kiddie film. Oooh, ooh, and we could have a kind of epic clash movie with SHARKNADO VS DOLPHINNADO. Okay I’m thinking about this way too much.

  2. Yeah, I didn’t see Sharknado when it first aired, but since pretty much the entire world live-tweeted it, so we watched it once it came to Netflix. It’s definitely a movie you have to watch with other people for maximum entertainment value. I think that’s true of any terrible movie.

    Oh, and I have another -nado suggestion, inspired by Ellie’s Frognado…

    HYPNOTOADNADO!!!

    Here’s hoping you make it through the next month! At least you should be done with these crazy days by the time it’s nice enough to do anything outside.

  3. HELLO! I missed your posts.

    Your schedule makes me shudder though – that’s tough. I hope you’ll get more a lot of reading and blogging time once it’s over, congratulations on Kindle! Let us all know what you think of it πŸ™‚

  4. THE INTERNET HAS MISSED YOU ALSO (Or, at least I HAVE!) So thanks for the update and the reassurance you’re not dead. I appreciate that.

    I also completely support your kindle buying because seriously, stuff like that is EXACTLY what overtime is for. God, I love buying awesome things when I’ve made a bit more money in a month… Maybe TOO much haha.

  5. To my inexpressible joy, the Veronica Mars movie included a reference to Sharknado. I still haven’t seen the movie, but I read a lot about it when it happened. It just made the internet so happy!

    Also, poor you with all the work. Sounds so stressful. 😦

  6. Holy crap, Sarah. That kind of schedule is INTENSE. I fervently hope that it takes less time than you think it will to train those temps because you deserve a break after all of that. OT pay is always nice though!

    Hang in there, though, and we’ll see you when you emerge from this crazy work schedule. And yay for having a sweet Honeyman!

  7. I’m glad you’re alive πŸ˜€ Sometimes real life is just TOO MUCH! I totally get it.

    Speaking of dismal reading progress…I just dnf’d a book yesterday that I’d been struggling with for 10 days. What a waste of time. I think it was ME and not so much the book. Or not? I don’t know. I’m babbling.

  8. Your work schedule is CRAZY! I mean WOW! I hope the temps get trained soon and turn out to be good at what they do so you can cut down on your hours, because holy wow, that is insane!
    Are you joining the 24-hour readathon again as well?

  9. Sucks how much you’re having to work – I miss reading your posts! Hope things slow down for you. I know how I get when I am too busy to read…it’s like having withdrawals!

    Are you participating in the Dewey marathon this month?
