Another weekend … another update!
In my life:
Where did the past week go? It seems like just yesterday, Anne and I were talking about me coming down to visit her in Ohio and now it’s coming up SO FAST! I feel like I’m finally prepared, but mainly because I made myself get prepared these last few days (instead of watching Lost reruns), so this week can happen and then I am off!
I worked a LOT this past week, which was awesome. I’m loving the new library facility and can’t wait for the renovations on the other 60% of it to be finished. It does kind of suck working during the day in the week because all you can hear is construction. It can get LOUD! But I mostly work evenings or weekends, so that’s rare.
I got my car back! FINALLY! I hadn’t driven it for eleven days and for ten of those days it was in the shop. I got so used to driving my husband’s very big truck that I forgot where my gear shift was in my car. But that’s okay because today I drove it ALL THE PLACES and was happy to have my car and my music back — as well as a vehicle where I didn’t have to hoist myself up real high to get in.
I finally visited the new Target! I think we got 5 of them in the city and it’s alright. I think the ones in the states are better — at least the ones that I’ve visited in the past (last one was in Florida). It’s kind of like Wal-Mart, though I found that Target has more clothes (I scored two awesome dresses!), but less of a food section. I’m torn on if I like it or not.
In reading (& blogging):
SO you know how this week was Bout of Books? Well, I kind of sucked at it. I did finish reading Wedding Night, by Sophie Kinsella, which was awesome, and I’m still working on finishing my second book, Chasing Perfect, by Susan Mallery. I’m loving it and only have a few pages left to go, so I do plan to finish it by the end of today! Although, my initial goal was to read 5 books this week and I only read two, but that’s okay. I still had fun! I missed the chats because I was spending time with hubs, but I guess that’s why I left myself lots of moving room for the week and the read-a-thon. Since I’ll be airplane-bound soon, I plan to get some reading done then ALTHOUGH I did buy a few game books because I like those.
I was hoping to get more deck reading done this week but the mosquitos have come back with a VENGEANCE and it’s hard to go outside without getting swarmed. So, we’ve been housebound. I guess that’s okay, but I wish I could be outside in the sunshine!
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
