I'm back and ready to roll

And I really missed blogging! (let me know if I missed any good gossip so I can go rubber neck). I had a horrible day at work today. They are so mean... they actually want me to work. No time to peek at the internet and blog hop. No time for a lunch break so I ate my Lean Cuisine while I continued working. The only thing keeping me going is knowing that starting tomorrow I have 10 days off ... in a row even :) Tummy is under control but it really pisses me off that I have to avoid dairy. I'm in denial still.

So I see I need to update my sidebar and I have reviews to write. I also need to see if I can find a new free template. Getting tired of this one. I was thinking of maybe posting a review a day but that sounds overly ambitious. I have been reading but not as much as normal. Usually I can finish a book in 2 or 3 days but lately it's more like one in 6 or 7 days.

I updated to the new Blogger beta and, wow, it has labels. Cool! I hope they worked out most of the bugs because finding bugs in software is what I do all day at work and I don't want to have to deal with it when I'm trying to do something fun, like talk about books.

I also updated my yahoo mail account to the new Yahoo Mail beta. I'm a glutton for punishment.

Bob is taking the next 10 days off too. He wanted to spend time with me (how sweet :) and there are some things we want to do around the house. I hope it stops raining for a few days so I can send him off golfing. I don't want to hurt his feelings but sometimes I just want some time to myself. I have a huge To-Do list and hope to do a little book shopping. AND read as much as possible.

Boo, why bother with a To Do list ;) Sorry that was lazy Cindy talking AND you soooo deserve new books!! Remember to do positive self talk cause you've been working your arse off!!

I hope you and Bob have a great time just relaxing and being together ;)

Cindy: I would like to be lazy but I'm looking forward to getting some stuff done that I haven't had time for. But I plan on sleeping in EVERY morning. This morning my best bud took me out to Starbucks (soy latte, of course) and then we shopped at Ben Franklin and she bought me some yarn (for a payback hemming 2 pairs of pants for her). Wasn't she sweet? The last time I went to a bookstore and practiced the positive self talk like you suggested and it worked! I'll try it again :)

Kookie: Yup, I'm in heaven.

Glad to see you're back again!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been reading :)

ReneeW said...

Kristie: Thanks! Have read some but not nearly as much as I wanted. This is my week for reading.

Renee, my husband and I are on vacation too! We usually take Thanksgiving week and get a jump on stuff we need to do for Christmas. It helps to keep the holidays sane and enjoyable, so I'm with you on the To Do list.

Lucky, you're on vacation while I'm sitting here at work. Ugh. Some girls have all the luck.

Rosie: I think this is a great week for vacation. We have been getting a bunch of stuff done. Only problem is the weather is horrible. Wettest November on record. *squish*

Ames: Thanks, it was just a short break but i missed it.

Dylan: My condolences. I know next monday I'm going to be HATING the first day back. Yuck.

Wow, I haven't touched my blog in over 6 years and I'm still logged in!  Good thing because I have no idea what my password is.  In ...
