i've been home from nashville for a bit & i still miss it! what IS it about that town?? it's just so... i think i love nashville more than chicago. not just the city, but the whole surrounding areas. it's just... idk. i just love it!
i also loved having two days to rest up, because i knew getting back to work was going to be C R A Z Y.
i was not wrong.
i don't want to write a lot about it, because things happen & ppl make mistakes & _I_ make mistakes so i totally get it. i'm not mad, just disappointed. *laugh* anyway, i finally feel like maybe i'm catching up a little. that's right - i was gone from work for a total of 4 work days, and it's taken nearly 7 to feel like i MIGHT be catching up. *groan* *laugh* still, TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!! :D
anyway, last weekend i got to hang out w/ leyton & mom for a bit, so that was fun! : )
why hello there, aunt carrie!
yes, i am 7 and my feet are the same size as yours, aunt carrie!
LOL : )
he set it all up for us to pay yahtzee! : )
hey may have also got gramma in the funny bone...
this ball was cool. you guide it w/ your hand and ... air?
it's like levitation magic. LOL
or science. whatever.
phil's 6'4 or 5" i can't remember
leyton's TALL! *grin*
and this week, i got to SEE mr c three times and ACTUALLY TALK TO HIM twice. seriously, i sometimes go a month w/o seeing anything more than his car or an occasional glimpse as he goes to lunch or gets back when i'm reading in my car. *laugh* so, to see him and actually have two conversations in person two days in a row... yeah, it's worth a paragraph. LOL
anyway, i also WON some books! *bounce* i got swag in the mail from Kylie Scott, i won a release party prize pack from Cambria Hebert, and i won a signed paperback of Sweet Temptation by KC Lynn (check it out, i LOVED this story!!)!!! *bounceclapbeam*
just the Lick stuff - other stuff is on its way to me.
love love love!
btw, angel is still having issues, but she's using the loo properly now, and she's not in any pain or anything. i think she just needs to lose some weight so she can properly clean herself...? idk. i've had to stop letting her sleep w/ me, tho, because even when i wash her, she then pees in the night & then my bed smells like pee, and seriously, that is GROSS & i just can't do it. i can't wash my blankets every day, that's a lot of water! so, i cuddle w/ her a bit & then i have to shut my door & then listen to her scratch at it & talk to me through it. i talk back to her, telling her it's okay & i love her. i know, i know. but short of shaving her butt...
anyway! poor kitty, but i love her!
i think that's it for me for now. next book is Chelle Bliss's Throttle Me. i've been sharing a lot of books w/ sarah lately - she loves Fighting Temptation by KC & i just sent her Sweet Temptation after i finished, so we'll see what she thinks. *grin* i love being able to share & love these books w/ a friend! but also - dang, she reads fast! LOL and i don't have THAT many kindle books! then a break from that genre to read Night's Master by amanda ashley, and then maybe Hook Me ... or Ten Tiny Breaths - not sure yet!
this weekend, i was just ready for a rest! i did meet mom & the boys for lunch at margaritas (yum!) & while there anthony mentioned he had a ticket for rock the district, but jake (his best friend) had to work & so wasn't going to be able to go & he didn't want to go by himself. i said i couldn't afford a ticket or i'd go. mom generously offered to buy my ticket. so! it looked like i was going to see three years hollow & chevelle! woot!
but then anthony called later & said jake got off work early & he still wanted to go to the concert & could we pick him up? i said sure, and - since it's an outdoor concert & as much as i wanted to see both groups & as much as i LOVE live music... i didn't want to stand out in the heat w/ a huge group of ppl for 5 hours. so, since jake was now available, i just picked him up & dropped the boys off in the district & let them hang out. i came back home to read. : ) waiting for the text to go pick them up... : )
next week is another busy one, and i need to relax before it. LOL it'll be fun, too, tho. :D
