Yawn

I have had a long week and boy am I looking forward to the weekend. I've basically only had 1 day off in the last two weeks... and yet still people are asking me if I have certain things completed yet. Um, no. Now go away.

I am sooooo sleeping in tomorrow morning. Watch, I'll wake up with 7am insomnia.

I still have another long week ahead of me as I try and get everything done before vacation. I often think vacation isn't worth the taking, judging by the amount of work that piles up while you're gone and sits on your desk, awaiting your return. This time, however, I don't care what awaits me on my return - I need this vacation.

I've been plowing through the reading at night, mainly as a way to give my mind a solid break from work. I finished Little White Lies (predictable and boring). Then I moved on to Something Borrowed, actually a decent book even if the premise is man-stealing. The sequel, Something Blue, continues the story but from an opposing point of view. I may pick that up when it comes out on paperback.

After that I picked up Shopaholic & Sister. I enjoyed the previous Shopaholic books, but this one was terrible. Becky was just too dumb this time around. This being book 4, you start to wonder when she's going to smarten up: you want to slap her upside the head and tell her to stop running up debt already. The premise is getting old. The book ended with an obvious hint at a sequel. Not sure if I want a 5th book.

Next on the list I decided I needed a break from romance chicklit and am switching to mystery chicklit with 'Til Death Do Us Part.

Must start packing this weekend. Wonder what the temperature will be? From the long-term forecast, it looks like I'll basically have summer in SJ type-weather. Minus the fog :)

"Man-stealing"? What are we, horses?

Might be better not to answer that. :(
