Does anyone ever get Sunday blues? I'm sure many of you may have the Monday blues but Sunday blues? There's one thing I don't like about Sunday at all - and that's the fact that it comes before Monday. Just the knowledge that the weekend is ending can make the mood around me feel very somber on a Sunday morning. It is a lot better now - I actually love going to work nowadays after how my career direction changed more than a year ago. But there used to be a time when I brooded at home from Sunday AM already dreading the return to school or work the next day. Still, even now, it's no fun thinking I can't stay in my pajamas one more day.
Speaking of work, I was thrilled to learn that we will be enjoying summer hours again this year. It's my third year doing it and even though it can be hellish working 10 hours a day, it feels all worth it when Friday rolls around and there's a long three-day weekend ahead of me. I hope the husband and I make some good plans over the weekends during the next two months.
The past week was very busy at work as usual. (What's wrong with me - third paragraph of this post and I'm still talking about work.) Our BIG deadline is coming up in less than two months and it feels like there is still so much to do. There seems to be every indication that I may end up doing overtime, although management is trying hard to see if that can be avoided.
I ended up temporarily putting down two books this week (Appointment in Samarra and The Travel Auction) - both good books but not fast moving enough. I really want something that reads blazing fast without being a boring literature. Part of me is thinking Dan Brown's Inferno would fit the bill perfectly but it already has 48 holds at one library and 38 at another. I need something right now and I don't fancy the idea of buying the book. I have four books on my NetGalley account that I need to read. There were a lot more actually at one point but because I'm so bad with reading ebooks that they got archived before I could download them. Part of the reason is how much work it is to move an ebook to my first gen nook and maybe that's fodder for a whole different post. For now, these are what I have - Stonewall, Transatlantic, The Boy Who Could See Demons and Anonymous Sources. Have you read any? Do you think one of these could get me out of the rut I seem to have gotten into.
