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 PeaceΒ 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 EffectΒ 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 finishΒ 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?

  1. This week we start our baby classes at the hospital! I’m kind of dreading and looking forward to it at the same time. Our schedule for the next two weeks is crazy, but I know I’ll feel more ready once we get through it.

    And (speaking of babies) yeah, I definitely get not loving a sequel because it just doesn’t go in a direction you can get on board with. Some books, it’s better to imagine them as stand-alones.

  2. I’m glad you heard from your honey. πŸ™‚ Kudos to you for starting War and Peace; I’m so intimidated by the size of that book, I run scared. I’m looking forward to a potential snow day this coming Friday! (crosses fingers, toes, arms, & legs) πŸ˜‰

  3. Awesome you got a letter and a call!

    I hope you get a temp soon so you can enjoy downtime and reading time!

    Don’t force yourself to keep reading the book. So not worth it when you have other great books to read. I’ve had to learn that lesson over the years.

    1. ME TOO. We interviewed someone who seems okay, hopefully we’ll start him this week. Fingers crossed that fifth time is the charm…

      And yeah, I DNF-ed for now. It’s due at the library anyways, I’ll pick it up again sometime later.

  4. Aww, a letter! That’s so lovely! πŸ™‚ And I’m happy for you that you actually got to talk to each other on the phone!
    Also, I read the Rosie Effect and it just wasn’t as amazing as The Rosie Project, I really started disliking Rosie.. But Don is still awesome.

    1. Thanks πŸ™‚

      So ****SPOILER ALERT FOR ANYONE WHO HASN’T READ THE ROSIE EFFECT YET****

      So it bugged me that she got pregnant accidentally-on-purpose. And without even talking to Don. I would’ve felt better if their birth control had just failed, but that she decided to kind of mess around with it without even discussing it really annoyed me.

  5. Aw, so glad y’all got to talk, even if only briefly! And I hope there are many more letters to come.

    Shoes shopping is indeed terrible. Boots especially, because they tend to be so expensive, and also SO picked over at the store. The only way I get myself through it, when I have to do it, is to remind myself that at least I am not shopping for jeans (the true worst thing to shop for).

      Shopping for jeans is pretty rough too. And they’re so annoyingly expensive! I try to go to Goodwill and try on like 30 pairs and just hope a couple work. It’s a pain in the ass though.
