Happy Labor Day Weekend, everyone! My daughter woke up this morning and bemoaned the fact that tomorrow was another “stay-home” day. Me – all I could think of was THANK GOODNESS tomorrow is another stay-home day. I definitely need the extra day – to study, to write reviews and other blog posts, to do laundry, to go grocery shopping and to try to relax. The best thing about this weekend is that we have absolutely no obligations, nothing scheduled, nowhere we absolutely have to be. It is a wonderful feeling, especially with how busy we’ve been these past few weeks and in the weeks to come.
Surprisingly, I was able to finish two books this week. I wasn’t planning to do so, as I was really hoping to cut down on reading as my test date got closer and closer. So, I was shocked to find myself finished with two books this morning: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and The Shimmer by David Morrell. I’m not certain how it happened, and I’m afraid that I need to lock any books up until after my test so that I’m not so easily distracted this week.
This week seemed to be the week for blogger awards. I received not one but THREE of them – well, actually, two different ones but one from two different people. Ceri at Not in the Pink and Sarbear at My Life is an Effing Fairy Tale both gave me the “From Me to You” award. Sarbear also gave me the “Let’s Be Friends” award. As I mentioned in my post announcing them, I consider both bloggers kindred spirits and adore their blogs.
As for next week, my test is on Saturday, so my focus is going to be on that. In an effort to get some sleep and not dream about ratios, various definitions, and multiple choice questions, I’ll be reading Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill as part of the RIP Challenge. I’ll also be switching to Of Human Bondage by M. Somerset Maugham as the next reading selection for my online book club. Right now, I need to focus on remembering as much about global business, basic economics, financial statement analysis, forecasting, and other accounting topics.
Oh, and I’ll be getting ready for next week’s Book Bloggers Appreciation Week. This is my first experience with it, and I am really looking forward to learning more about my favorite bloggers, meeting new ones and making new friends!
I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of their Sunday and even better Labor Day Monday (for those who celebrate it). Happy reading, everyone!
