Why do short work weeks feel so long? I felt like this 4 day work week would never end. I really need my weekends these days. Last weekend my neck was hurting so bad that I couldn’t move without pain or sleep well. It was feeling a bit better by the start of the work week but not by a lot. I didn’t feel up to being on the computer a lot outside of work so I fell behind with comments once again.
There really wasn’t much happening this week. I went to work, walked the dogs, pulled too many weeds, made dinner, and tried to keep my head above water with the blog. We did get up and go to a few yard sales in my neighborhood Saturday morning. I had hoped to find books (of course) but instead, we came home with a new bed for my daughter. I just couldn’t pass up the gorgeous queen-size bed that someone was selling since my daughter reminds us that she needs a bigger bed at least weekly. Of course, I need to get a mattress before she can actually sleep on it.
What I’m Reading
I finished three books this week. I had a little bit of time last Sunday to read and finished Switch by A.S. King. I liked the book but thought that it was a little too abstract for my taste. I was able to finish The Last Secret You’ll Ever Keep by Laurie Faria Stolarz and wasn’t too much a fan of the story in the end. I didn’t get a lot of reading time during the week but was able to finish reading Falling by T.J. Newman Friday night which I found to be a very entertaining read.
I am about three-quarters of the way through Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid and am starting to understand why everyone seems to love this author as much as they do. I just started reading The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid yesterday and hope to finish it later today. I am loving it so far.
