Random News And Goings-On
Our bathroom remodel set to start mid-week! They’re going to do the bathroom first and then the kitchen sometime mid-September as we’re waiting for the appliances to arrive (appliance shortage is one of the odd manufacturing shortages of the pandemic). They said a week and a half for the bathroom but I’m hoping they’ll get it done sooner because we only have the one full bath and a toilet in the back of the basement where spiders like to dwell. Anyway, some of this weekend time is being spent prepping for this work to get done.
This past week I did get some reading in and am happy with my progress, more on that tomorrow though. Work was pretty chill as my boss went on another vacation. Things are slow still and that is worrying–if they don’t pick up soon we might go out of business! I might hate my workplace but it’s better than nothing.
Also this past week I wasn’t feeling great. Not pandemic related but I think a lack of sleep plus, too much caffeine, eating like crap and sleeping wrong left me with various ailments throughout the week. Weird neck ache which turned into a massive headache, then feeling woozy and sick half a day, nerve endings felt raw from exhaustion, heart palpitations from anxiety. Then suddenly my wrist kept getting a shooting pain but it’s not the tendons or anything like that and feels like a nerve? Who knows, your body gets weird when it starts getting old. I’m hoping that this week I’ll be feeling mostly better.
New Book Arrivals at Way Too Fantasy
Only one new physical book, but it’s a pretty one. I tried to get a sprayed edge copy of Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir to match the sprayed edges of the first one but everywhere ran out before I could get one, womp womp. Nevertheless, happy to add this to my TBR. At some point I’ll start this series. 🙂
Went on a bit of an ebook buying binge again, whoops!

Anyway, I know this is a lot but…I think of it as adding a ton of great books to choose from to my kindle app. 🙂
No audiobooks this time around but might have some next time as my audible credits will be in. Although I might use them on preorders so I can catch up on some other things I have in queue. We’ll see.
That’s the news for this week, see you next time!
