Two of the best things happened this week: On Tuesday, I got my first letter from the honeyman. I sat on the stool that I keep next to the stove and read it, and then read it out loud to Gabby (and then maybe read it a couple more times before bed). It was just a short quick letter, but it was exciting and wonderful. And THEN, on Wednesday, the honeyman got to call! We spoke for less than two minutes, but it was just the best thing ever to hear his voice. He said he’s sending me his actual address now, so as soon as I get it I can start mailing him the letters I’ve been writing.
What else… we got a bunch of snow early in the week, so we left work early on Monday and I got to come home and play Borderlands for a couple hours. Of course, I haven’t gotten around to playing since, which sucks. My sis came over Wednesday night and we ate and watched Friends and played games. I came home Thursday night and was REALLY tired, so I ate food and started catching up on The Flash, which is pretty exciting. Hulu removed some of the episodes I hadn’t seen (so annoying that they do that now), but I just jumped back in at episode 8 and it was fine.
I started War and Peace early in the week for the readalong, but now it’s time for the first week update and I’m not even close to finishing the first section. Ugh. I started The Rosie Effect and I’m a little more than halfway through it… and I’m thinking of DNF-ing. Maybe I’ll pick it up again some day, but I’m just not feeling it right now. Maybe it’s because it’s about them having a baby, which is not a topic I love, and there are a couple things that have bugged me a bit… I don’t want to keep reading and ruin the characters for myself. Maybe I’ll just not finish it and The Rosie Project will live forever in my head as a great book.
This week went by too fast, and I feel like I got hardly any reading and relaxing time in. I picked my nephew up yesterday, ran a whole bunch of errands with me, and he slept over. I’ll drop him off this afternoon, then I have to go to the honeyman’s mom’s house, and then I really, really should go shopping for boots to wear to work, because mine are literally falling apart. I HATE shoe shopping. And I’d really just rather hang out at home with Gabby, ya know?
Anyways, here’s to hoping that we get a new temp started this week at work, that I get more letters from the honeyman, and that my nights are laid-back and quiet so I can catch up on my stack of books. Anything you’re looking forward to this week?
