Week in READview:
I was planning to take a break but I realized taking a break wont make me any less sad and honestly my dad would be mad if I didn’t live my life. I miss him so very much and this week, on Thursday was my birthday, it felt so weird to not having him here but I have a story for you…
Many moons ago, I used to rub off lottery tickets after dinner with my dad. He always told me I was lucky because I won. Usually small prizes like $1 or $5. One time he came into my room after dinner and handed me a few tickets to rub off. He told me the cow one (forgot the name) didn’t have a big winner yet. I rubbed off all the tickets, walked into the kitchen and handed him the cow ticket. I had won him $500. He said see, I knew you would win. That was the only time I ever won that much! lol Fast forward to my birthday on Thursday..My mom gave me two lottery tickets for my birthday. The first one I rubbed off, I won $500. I think my dad was wishing me a happy birthday! Thanks Dad!
While I missed my dad terribly I had a nice birthday. Besides the $500, I got a few amazon gift cards and my family got me an edible arrangement with my favorite Chocolate covered green apples. YUM! We also ordered dinner and it was just a nice evening with the 4 of us and my mom.
Work has been CRAZY busy. We have so many diners/restaurants that want their menus in a limited menus format. Something for when they open they can hand to customers and then just throw the paper menus away instead of having to clean them each time someone comes in. Since I love a good puzzle, trying to fit a menu on a smaller size page is hard but so far I am not too bad at it and I love trying to figure it out. I have been working late and taking work home with me so that is a major plus. We haven’t been this busy in a long time so I am hoping it stays like this for at least a couple more months.
Blogging & Reading:
Spent a lot of time on Saturday watching Panels for Book Con and will continue doing it today. I miss going to the event but it was awesome to watch the authors chat about their books.
This weekend I did a few posts and scheduled a few things for COYER. I am slowly getting my posts done and will continue to do that over the next few weeks. I miss blogging and I forgot what an escape and how much fun it is to share my thoughts and love for reading.
I am slowly reading, my focus is still a little off but one step at a time, I will get there eventually.
