Hello, meine Liebchen! It’s been a musical week at the Shannon household. Not only did we have a band concert on Monday, Connor had a piano competition on Saturday. We are still waiting for results, but based on what we heard from behind closed doors, he did really well.
Honestly, there is really nothing else going on. Our lives remain on hold until Kerry can get its act together and figure out when Jim and I will be going up to Beloit for interviews. For some inexplicable reason, they want to send us both up at the same time, even though we are interviewing with completely different people. The chances of getting twelve upper managers in the same building at the same time and making it conducive to our schedule is proving impossible, and yet they are still doing it. Go figure.
On the blog, here’s what I reviewed this week:
- My Lost Daughter by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg
- The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice
- The Healing by Jonathan Odell
- I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Thanks, Jenny! He did really well on the competition. The interviews? We shall see!
life is going on baby! I totally get that. Fingers crossed on both the competition and the job interview. Good luck to all and have a good week 🙂
My recent post Fitness Friday: Improvisation is a good thing
Thanks. There may be some movement this week, like a very sudden, last-minute trip to HQ for those interviews. It is STILL up in the air even though they want me to fly out on Wednesday the last I heard anything. Stupid.
I can't believe they are still holding out on giving you definitely answers. Good luck with it.
My recent post Review: In Our Control by Laura Eldridge
Thanks, Carrie! Yes, some days are definitely beyond busy and others are just spent hoping the phone is going to ring. One of these days, this will all be over.
Anna Funder's All That I Am, an excellent book about the Weimar revolutionaries from 1919 and how they tried to prevent Hitler from going to war.
That was completely unintentional on my part, I promise. 😀
Since you asked, I finished Anna Funder's All That I Am today. I also have another sixty pages to read in Lady Chatterley's Lover.
Sounds like you're walking a fine line between hectic and waiting! I hope the interviews go smoothly with no aggravations!

I was wondering the same thing as Bryan, Michelle. What are you reading today? 🙂
My recent post TSS: Paris, My Sweet by Amy Thomas
I love how you say that "there is nothing else going on" and then proceed to tell us everything else that is going on. 🙂 I just hope it works out with a smile in the end for you.
Also what are you reading today, chickadee? 😉
