Read Me   Leave a comment

Yesterday I struggled to come up with something to write about my lunch break. I got a piece of pizza and then went to Target to shop for birthday gifts and Easter stuff. But I was just so “bunky” yesterday I couldn’t have written a positive sentence if I tried. I think it was the weather partly, and partly because I think we’re going to have a hard time getting into the Ronald McDonald House when my son goes in for his surgery. It’s funny how little things like that can just throw you off.

Well today for my lunch break, I went to the local library. I haven’t been in there for quite some time but I needed to pick up a book that was on hold for me, something that was suggested reading for my final MBA class. Not too exciting but hopefully it will be helpful. I also picked up Jaycee¬†Dugar’s memoir and read the first chapter of it before going back into work. It’s not too bad so far.

So that’s all I had time for today, but I’m glad to see the weather is turning sunnier, even though I felt like fastening myself down so I didn’t blow away.

Happy Tuesday!

  • Not all reading is fun, some of it is necessary.
  • I think people need longer than a half hour lunch break.

Burger and Book   Leave a comment

Today was pretty low-key in the lunch break department.

I just ran to Burger Time and got one of their awesome hamburgers and a pop/soda/Coke. Then I read through my mail which included a reader’s poll for some romance novels. Harlequin included the first chapter of three books for me to read (while munching on my burger) and then by returning the poll, I would receive . . .

FREE GIFTS!

However, after reading the fine print, if I don’t put “return to sender” and decline my free books when I receive them, then they will send me/charge me for more every month. Yeah, I didn’t fill out the poll.
