General Life Happenings
Whew! What a week this has been! I have been kind of looking forward to this week and had lot of big plans. None of which worked out. My daughter has been in Indiana at a week long band camp so my husband and I have the house to ourselves (if you don't count the animals). I had plans to get caught up on visiting blogs and reading several books among other things. Plans are nice but rarely work out in my world.
This week has instead consisted of a horrible migraine, puppy diarrhea, and an over the top heat wave. The migraine that I had made it impossible to look at any screen. It was actually quite scary to be honest. I have never had an ocular migraine before although I have had migraines and I hope to have neither kind ever again. My head still starts feeling off anytime I look at a screen for too long so I will wait a bit before I spend too much time online.
I was in the middle of a book at the beginning of this week. Unfortunately, I have to read this book on my tablet since I can't put it on my kindle. Because of my migraine, I had to put it aside. I am really looking forward to getting back to The Wolf Road and thought it had a really strong start.
Since I couldn't just have nothing to read, I loaded the next book on my list, Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis, onto my kindle and am not having any trouble reading it even though I am need to use a huge font. I am really enjoying this one and should finish it sometime this week.
I decided to listen to an audiobook during our drive to Indiana and back on Sunday to drop our daughter off at camp. Yes, my poor husband spent Father's Day in the car all day getting his baby girl to camp. He is a keeper. I haven't felt the need to pick it back up during the work week but I am looking forward to finishing it during our trip to pick her up on Saturday.
I did have a pleasant surprise this week as a result of the Apple settlement. I must be living under a rock because I had no idea that Amazon customer's would be getting any kind of settlement. I had a kindle during the time period the the suit addressed and I hate to say that I bought an embarrassingly large number of books during that time. When I received an email that I had a huge credit added to my account, I was more than a little surprised. It is really tempting to go crazy buying more books or to splurge on something but I will probably just use the money to buy dog food and other fun stuff that I usually buy on Amazon.
What's coming up?
We leave bright and early on Saturday to pick up our daughter at camp. There is a concert in the middle of the day so it is going to be a long day. Otherwise, next week should be pretty calm....let's hope :)
