How in the world are we already in the middle of August? I keep putting off posting on the blog because I’ve been so busy; but now it’s the 13th and I’ve already read nine books. Oops.
Things that have happened recently:
- I had a first (yay!) and second (YAY!!) interview for a position I’m really excited about. After seven months of being out of a job (can’t believe it’s already been that long), I am so ready to start. Fingers are crossed.
- My purse was stolen. Bagnapped. This happened yesterday while I was at my favorite coffee shop. I got up to leave and lo and behold–bag was gone. I had to file a police report and cancel everything and it was pretty awful. My keys and my address are in the bag, so I hope the purse snatcher doesn’t want to add to his/her list of crime.
- Our toilet clogged and we didn’t have a plunger. This also happened yesterday, which was just a wonderful addition to a no good, awful day. As of now, it’s still not fixed. The boyfriend used every clean towel in the house. Fingers are crossed about this one, too.
- My baby brother is turning the big 13 this Saturday so E asnd I are driving down for his birthday party. I can’t believe he’s so grown up! When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said, “I’ll make this simple. Skinny Jeans.” Skinny jeans??? I was expecting a video game or a toy of some kind, but no, he wants skinny jeans. (Coincidently, do you have any idea how difficult it is to find skinny jeans for a boy who is, in fact, very skinny??? If not, I’ll tell you: it’s difficult.)
So that’s about all the exciting news thats happening at Casa de Cass. Hoping things start to look up. I’ll be writing some reviews soon.
PS. Can I just say how happy I am that I kept reading the Sookie Stackhouse series even after the terrible third book? It’s so, so good. Even the ridiculous love triangle/quadrangle/whatever five angles is is done in a way that’s enjoyable. Thanks, Charlaine! I’ve read four of the books this month already, which means I’m all caught up–except for the newest one, which I might just have to get on audiobook because the line is so much shorter. Or maybe I’ll suck it up and buy it. We’ll see.
I have the next book in the Aurora Teagarden series waiting for me at the library, and I’m a little wary. Hopefully it’ll be wonderful, but I won’t hold my breath.
