Sunday Salon ~ March 28, 2010

Did you have a good week?  I spent time this week getting reading for my new job which I begin tomorrow.  I had fun shopping for lots of new clothes and shoes etc. since I have not worked in nearly a year.  I also got a hair cut, and I am good to go.  I am really excited about the job though, and can't wait to get back into the work routine, and meet new people etc.  Did I mention that the primary duties in my new library job will be ordering new materials and cataloguing? (That is what I did at my last job as well).  I like the fact that it does not involve working with the public, yet I still get to see all the new materials.

I am one of those people who love my sleep and private time, so I've been spending a lot of time thinking about my work routine (yep ...I'm a planner). I'm thinking about hitting the sheets by 10:30 pm each evening, and getting up at 5:00am, so that I can check email, blog on occasion, have a relaxing breakfast, shower and be out of the house by 7:40am. My hours are (8-4) and it is only 6 miles from home.

As for my reading, I've accepted the fact that it will slow down, and that I will be listening to more audio books, when I walk at lunchtime, or while driving and before bed.

This week, I met another high school friend. This one I had not seen in over 20 years, and once again, it was yap, yap, yap, just like old times. So much fun.. now we want to coordinate (4) of us from the old gang getting together for even more chatty, gossipy girl talk.

Books Completed This Week

Tentative Wishful Reading Plans for This Week
  • Read, Remember, Recommend; Knight
  • Forty Rules of Love; Shafak (audio-continue listening)
  • ??? start something new today 
Have a Great Week Everyone!

  2. Cute picture. I have two rabbits, and for a short time fostered a kitten. They got along fairly well. In the end the kitten was too playful for the rabbits. I think a full grown cat would probably be fine with them though. My rabbits do play, but they kitten was out of control action all day long.

    Rabbits need their rest.


    Good luck at the new job.

  7. Hope things work out with the new job. I am also back to work fulltime and find much, much less time for reading and blogging. Too tired at the end of the day. Hope that won't be your case, tho. Have a good week.

  12. I'm so excited for you and your new job!! It would be so much fun to see all the new materials and get to be the first one to smell the pages!!!

    I thrive on routine and hate it when things go awry...I try not to stress out too much about it, but making a plan never hurts!!

  19. Have a wonderful first day tomorrow Diane, I will be thinking of you. Getting up at 5am seems exhausting to me, but I am not a morning person.

  29. Good luck tomorrow! I think your plan will work out beautifully. I get up 30 min earlier than I have to so that I can get my morning walk in before work. It makes my day to get that out of the way early.

  30. I wish you the best on the new job. :)

    I'm a routine person as well. I don't like it when circumstances beyond my control dislodge me from my routine. Reading especially. But this past week my whole biological clock is subverted, let alone my routine, since I was home in Hong Kong. I had to come back when I was just being acclimatized to the new routine there. Reading is surprisingly productive. All that I did was keeping my father's company while I read.
