I don’t even know what to say. I had high expectations for the week but things fell apart quickly. My workplace is moving in about 2 weeks so the workweek has been very busy since I am trying to do my job and find the time to go through things and decide what can be tossed before the move. I am not happy about the move since it is going to be a much longer commute. I will give it a go but I might be looking for a new job soon.
I don’t really mention it often on the blog but I have thyroid problems. It’s not usually a big deal but when things get out of whack, I can feel really bad. Sunday and Monday were rough days for me. I kept crawling back to bed on Sunday and felt like I was about to fall asleep at my desk on Monday. I had intended to post a review on Tuesday but just didn’t feel up to it. I had hoped to get around to some blogs on Wednesday night but our internet wasn’t working properly. After it took about 2 hours to get my Books for the Backlog post ready to go I was done with the computer for the rest of the night.
On Thursday night, my daughter and I went to another book fair. It was opening night and we decided to pay the $10 cover fee since the rest of our week would be busy. While we were at the fair, a terrible storm came through the area and the power went out. We pulled out our phones and shopped in the dark using the flashlights on our phones. They eventually made everyone get ready to go when it became obvious that power would not be restored quickly. I paid cash for as many books as I could and they put the rest in a box for us to pick up later. I was soaked by the time I got to the car but my daughter stayed in the building to keep the books dry so all was well. There are no photos of this book hauls since I started putting everything on the shelves before I thought to take one.
My youngest daughter turned 21 yesterday which is somewhat hard to believe. We went with family to Dave & Buster’s then hit the local casino. As I write this, she is meeting some friends to celebrate. She moves back to college on Friday so I am glad that we were able to celebrate together before she left.
I am going to do my best to post and be active next week but I also plan to enjoy the last few days that I will have my daughter home. Please be patient with me for just a little bit longer!
What I’m Reading
I finished two books this week. I finished reading The Book of Accidents by Chuck Wendig on Monday and really enjoyed it. I had planned to listen to something other than White Night by Jim Butcher but I was hooked as soon as I hit play on this audiobook. It is so nice to revisit a favorite series like The Dresden Files.
I am about a third of the way through Feral Creatures by Kira Jane Buxton and I am loving it so far! I have just barely started The Introvert’s Guide to Online Dating by Emma Hart but am hopeful that it will be a fun listen.
This is the haul from last week’s book fair when I actually remembered to take a photo!
