This week was hard. To put it plainly, this week kicked my ass. I knew that this week would be tough when I saw my schedule for my part-time job but it was harder than I expected. After working long shifts both Saturday and Sunday last weekend, I was scheduled to work both Tuesday and Wednesday nights. This means that I had two 15-hour workdays in a row. I can handle long work days but I need some quiet time the next day to recover. I was basically worthless after work on both Thursday and Friday. Reviews did not get written, comments didn’t happen, and I didn’t even feel up to reading.
I did have yesterday off from both jobs. My first Saturday off since I started my part-time job. My husband and I had a full day, starting with breakfast at a restaurant that we had never been to before. I spent some time in our hot tub when we got home which felt wonderful. Then we decided to do some mattress shopping and should be getting our new mattress today. I have spent 6 months sleeping on a mattress on the floor and am giddy just thinking about getting back in my bed tonight.
I will do my best to get back to my routines this week.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I read 4 books this week and they were all audiobooks. I can listen to audiobooks while I do my full-time job or this total would probably be zero. I finished Loyalty in Death by J.D. Robb early in the week and really enjoyed it. Seriously, Roarke is the best! Black Sheep by Rachel Harrison kept me glued to my headphones with more than a few surprises. I decided that I was in the book for romance so I picked up Lotus by Jennifer Hartmann which was very well done. Heated Rivalry by Rachel Reid was probably my favorite of the week. Shane and Ilya were wonderful characters and their romance was exactly what I needed at the end of a stressful week.
I have read about 40% of Starter Villain by John Scalzi and love this author’s sense of humor. I needed more of Shane and Ilya so I started listening to The Long Game by Rachel Reid and can’t wait to see how things work out.
