This will be where I list the books I have read this month, movies I have seen, notable acquisitions, and anything else that I find worthy of telling you. =)
A Crazy Couple of Months:
Well, if you have been a reader here for any length of time, then you will know that the past couple of months have been a little crazy for me. At the beginning of May, I quit Library Job #1 of two because of scheduling and starting school in the fall. Then it was a mad-rush to get my apartment packed up so I could move to my new (and bigger) home! After a couple of EXHAUSTING weeks, we finally got everything from one place to another and handed in our keys to the old place the second week of June (on a Monday). That Wednesday evening started the my BFF’s pre-wedding festivities, and the rest of that week we hosted 15 different guests at our new place. FUN, but EXHAUSTING. And then, the wedding was over, and moving was over, and hubby and I did NOTHING for an entire week (other than go to work).
Oh yeah, I also had a job interview back at Library #1 for an upgraded position (from page to library assistant) which I am happy to say I GOT! So now I am in the process of transitioning from library #2 back to library #1. And, for the next two weeks, back to working two jobs. HAHA oh well!
Needless to say, it has been a crazy, busy, hectic couple of months! But I am [mostly] back now, trying to catch up on A LOT of reviews I need to write. But hopefully July will prove to be productive on the blogging front.
And so, without further ado, here is the summary of the past two months!
