I continue to be exhausted by my work’s move. I finally was able to get my desk set up in my office on Thursday which should be much better than the table in the warehouse that I have had to deal with for the past 2 weeks. Not only is the new workplace further from my house, but there is also a ton of road construction. Before the move, my commute was 10 minutes if I hit all of the lights. Now, my commute has been roughly 45 minutes. I am using a lot more gas every week in addition to the extra time. I am not sure if I want to do this long-term.
It is usually more than enough for us to just go to work during the week. We are old and get tired if we have to do too much…lol. This week we also had to take one of the dogs to the vet and coordinate getting our truck to the shop to repair the exhaust that had rusted through. On Saturday, we run a couple of errands and finally did a second coat of paint in our living room. We plan to start working on the kitchen/dining/hallway area next week. I do not enjoy painting but it really needs to be done.
Today, I am planning to have my mom, oldest daughter, and my sister with her family get together for a meal. I haven’t seen my sister or her family for some time. They came to help celebrate my youngest daughter’s 21st birthday and then my 7 year old nephew was diagnosed with Covid. His twin sister was negative but had to stay in quarantine for a couple of weeks, delaying her start of school. Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things blogwise this week.
What I’m Reading
I only finished 2 books this week. I had a couple of days that it was impossible to listen to audiobooks at work (which is where I do most of my listening) but things got back on track at the end of the week. I listened to The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward early in the week and enjoyed all of the twists and turns. I started reading Look What You Made Me Do by Elaine Murphy and just could not stop. I had a lot of fun with it and plan to post my review next week.
I have only read a bit of The Origins of Iris by Beth Lewis but I am eager to dedicate a bit more time to it this week. I am at the 60% mark on The Huntress by Kate Quinn so I should definitely be able to finish it this week. This is one of the 4 books that I have left to review on Edelweiss and I am eager to knock it off my list. And it has been really good so far! I just started reading Chasing the Boogeyman by Richard Chizmar and I cannot wait for the chance to sit down and read some more.
