Weekend Stuff

Well, I was sort of putting off updating because I was waiting for some information, but since I still haven't gotten it I'll just post anyway. I know, it's after 10:00 and I normally am in bed by now, but we're starting to get some of that nasty snow, and Jim's stuck at a friend's house waiting on a cab to get home, so I'm kind of staying awake until I at least know that he's gotten his ride. He's been waiting for over an hour.

One week from today I'll be in Florida! Given this sudden weather change, I think the timing couldn't possibly be better. yes, it's only a couple of days, but it's still a change from ice, cold, and snow. I even hate writing that word here. It's one of those 4-letter S words that I absolutely hate to say. SMILE!

Yesterday I had planned to go shopping in the morning for new clothes. Unfortunately, (or maybe it was fortunate, I still don't know), I kind of got really involved in a Sudoku game and couldn't put it down. So, I didn't get out of here until the afternoon. The entire day just flew by, and I couldn't believe how fast it went. I ended up going to Kohls which is kind of like a really upscale Wal-Mart. I had great cab service on the way there, and I got some great help in the store itself. I picked up some new clothes for work, so now I guess I'm going to have to wear them. SMILE! I still refuse to wear skirts, so everything I got I can wear with nice pants. Skirts and dresses are most definitely not me.

Today I finally found a book to read on Overdrive and since I only get 7 days for each book I check out, I've pretty much spent the day reading that. I picked True Believer by Nicholas Sparks. This is the same guy who wrote The Notebook, which I started reading and have never gotten around to finishing. But, I've heard that everything he writes is good, so I thought I'd give it a try. I got caught up in the book from the first paragraph, and it's been a good read. it really helps that the guy narrating has a decent voice. I know it probably sounds crazy, but if I don't like the narrator of a book, I can't read the book, and I don't care how good a book it is. I can't listen to books at twice their normal speed like some people, so the narrator is important to me. There's a sequel to True Believer called At First Sight, and I think I'm going to have to go and put a reserve on the book.

Speaking of putting a reserve on the books, here's a really weird thing. The books are downloadable from the Internet. So, you'd think that it wouldn't matter how many people had the book at the same time, especially since they're set to time out after a week anyway. So why then, do they only allow one or two people to download the book at any one time? It makes absolutely no sense to me. I guess that's why I'm not working in a library. SMILE!

Well, I have more to write about, but A, I'm getting tired, and B, I'd really like to wait until tomorrow to write about my next thing. So, I guess that's it for tonight.
