Happy Sunday, everyone! If I seem a bit distracted today, it is because my beloved Packers are playing the hated Chicago Bears as I type. It is a vicious rivalry, made all the worse because I grew up in the Chicago suburbs but remained true to my Wisconsin roots with my love of the Green and Gold. Attending one of these games is definitely on my bucket list. For now, I will remain content with watching them on the television.
Thanks for all the well wishes last week! I am definitely feeling better. I am not certain if it was exhaustion or if it was something more serious but all the sleep I got last weekend seemed to make a difference.
On the work front, the sales and purchase agreement between Cargill and Kerry was officially signed on Wednesday. They now have twenty days to present us with our formal offers for employment, and the sale should be final sometime in December. I have my good days and bad days about this entire scenario. I have noticed that as I get closer to finding out what the company has in store for me, I get more nervous and more despondent. Thankfully, the waiting game is almost over. I will definitely keep everyone posted!
It was back to basics on the blog this week with reviews, reviews and more reviews. Here they are if you missed them the first time:
- Once Upon a River by Bonnie Jo Campbell

- The Very Thought of You by Rosie Alison
- The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson
- Becoming Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey
I would normally share with you what I finished this week, but the Pack is getting ready to score again. I need to cheer them on. Have a great week, everyone! Happy reading!
Glad to hear that you're feeling better. I hope all works out with work!
Thanks, Lisa! What's worse is that friends of ours, who happen to be higher up in the food chain, know more than they can tell us. It is so frustrating that some people have the full scoop while the rest of us peons are left to wonder and worry. It really is not a great place to work right now because everyone is on tenterhooks. Oh well. The Packers' victory over the Bears is definitely a great way to start the week!
Hope everything turns out well at work! I hate the upheaval that happens when changes occur in a company. For some reason, employers don't seem to grasp how hard all of the waiting is on employees. At least the Packers won!
Thanks, Natasha! It is frustrating, nerve-wracking, and somewhat depressing too. Thankfully, the waiting is almost over.
I hope everything at works turns out in your favor. I know waiting to see what's going to happen is frustrating. I can't wait to read your reviews from this week. Go Packers Go! 🙂
