So… I didn’t say anything the other day because I was SUPER tired, but I was working the night shift the last few nights annnnnd the first night there, who should walk in but on of my FAVORITE booktubers.

Now….if you know me, you know I sometimes don’t say things when I should because I get all awkward and nervous, but this day I just couldn’t help myself. I mentioned that I followed him on youtube and we had a great chat about books while my coworker and I made his sandwich.

And then he turned around and talked about it. On his vlog. On youtube. So…yeah… GO WATCH IT! Mostly because he’s such a great person to watch.

( If you’re wondering/only want to see what he says about our interaction, skip ahead to like the eight or nine minute mark.  SERIOUSLY, though, guys–you should TOTES go follow Peter for his booktube if you’re not already following him, because he’s awesome sauce and I adore him so hard.  His booktube channel can be found RIGHT HERE MAH DEARS! )

So, it’s been two weeks since my last Stacking the Shelves.

Why?

Because somehow, someway….I’ve….stopped?!?!?!?!?! buying books?!?!?!?!?!

Sort of, at least.  I FINALLY restarted my Lit Cube subscription because OH EM PENGUINS next month is Beauty and the Beast and you all KNOW I couldn’t say no to that noise.  So…YAY!  I’ve also been receiving books from publishers and authors like craaaaaazyyyyyy…. and downloading freebies, because YAAAAAY freebies!

But I haven’t been BUYING books.  Which is weird…because there have been some recent book deals I’ve drooled over…but I’ve managed to say NO to the one-click temptation.  YAY ME!

Seriously, penguins, this is a major accomplishment in my world.

HELLOOOOOOO, penguins!  It is I, your royal beakness!

I’m not sure how much I’ll be updating your fins today–since my last Stacking the Shelves, not a whoooole lot has changed really.  Let’s see…. people continue quitting at work (they’re dropping like flies, penguins.  LIKE FLIIIIIES!)  I’m going to be officially starting my OFFICIAL schedule in the near soonish future…meaning 9am-5pm…six days a week.  On the plus side, YAY OVERTIME!  On the negative side….there really isn’t one actually, so YAY that too!  Seriously, I’m really enjoying this job.  My bosses are fantastic, I’ve been offered a SUPER awesome promotion packet for when I take on the GM position, and I’m super enthusiastic about this opportunity–seriously, the timing could not have been better with all of these life changes.  Obviously something wanted me to be in THIS place, doing THIS work, at this exact time.

Keith apparently ordered the DVD shelves earlier today, so we’ll be receiving that around Valentines Day, which means YAY I can actually unpack some of my boxes finally (seriously, all my stuff is still pretty much in boxes.  Or hampers.  Or bags.  We really need to start working on sprucing up the apartment.)  He also informed me the other night that we will be celebrating Valentines Day with dinner out and a movie.  Having come out of a series of relationships where Valentines Day wasn’t really a big deal….this is interesting for me.  Because honestly, until he said something, while I KNEW subconsciously that VDay is a thing…I had forgotten?  the VDay is a thing couples actually DO?!  I’m so terrible at this game, I can’t even.

Wyoming is getting DUMPED on by mountains of snow and all I can do is sit here and laugh because I SO TOTALLY don’t miss that frickfrack right now.  I mean, we’ve had some cold days here…but…I’ll take this cold over the snow and the below zeroes and the ICK that’s happening back home.

I actually have tomorrow (Saturday!) off, so Keith and I are gonna do….I dunno what but hopefully something fun because I sort of need to get out of the apartment for a bit.  Maybe I’ll talk him into going to a movie, or something… SOOOOOMETHING DIFFERENT, at the very least!

Other than that, I’ve just been doing the usual–going to work (I went in like two hours earlier today than usual because YAY catering orders! boooo I’m exhausted.  YAY tomorrow off!), coming home, eating dinner and sleeping….rinse and repeat.  Oh, and also squashing ants, because apparently the last tenants weren’t clean at all and so we have those.  Little tiny ones.  EWWWW.  (side note…why is it I can’t get away from the pests, no matter where I go?!)

What’s been happening in your worlds, penguins?!

HELLOOOOOOOO, from your favorite penguin!  I am OFFICIALLY in Indianapolis, Indiana–and I am SO super stoked about it!  I’ve been working on getting job applications sent around, and acclimating to the new place (although this is silly really, as we’ll be moving into a bigger place in mid-January).

My blood sugars have been a bit rocky the last few days; I’m hoping it’s just left-over stress from the move and all the traveling.  I might also be trying to catch a cold, so there’s that as well–that NEVER helps with blood sugars, and I don’t catch colds often, so… eh!

Keith bought me a HUGE stuffed penguin for Christmas.  Seriously, it comes up to my hip.  I had TWO huge boxes from him “under” the tree Christmas morning, actually, and was so super confused about what they were.  So, one was Bonekah–aptly named by Keith’s adorable son, whom I spent most of Christmas Eve and Christmas morning hanging out with.  The other was a gorgeous photograph of a sunset over some of the Colorado mountains, which he purchased at the art gallery in his home town.  Of course, I got other things as well–Santa came to visit for the kids, and left us all stuffed stockings.  Overall, it was a ton of fun, and I was sort of sad to see it end–though only a little, as I was ready for the next half of my adventure to begin.

One of my half-sisters, who I haven’t seen in something like ten or eleven years, has begun planning a trip out this way to meet up with me.  She lives something like four hours from here, and is wanting to get this way before she goes back to school.  I’m pretty excited about that–the last time I saw her, I was still in high school!  Hopefully it’ll be fun.

I’m trying to get back into a reading routine, as I sort of lost my old one when the traveling and family-time ensued.  Hopefully I’ll find a job fairly quickly and can incorporate my entire new routine together at once.  Hopefully.  But we’ll see what happens.

Other than that, it’s life as usual at the igloo!  How have you guys been?!  Have you missed me?!?!?!

I got the rest of my fragiles/breakables packed up, along with most of my odds ‘n’ ends AND board games AND dishes, this last week (mostly this morning.  I was a busy bee this morning!)  I also cleaned the stove before calling quits for the day–chemical headaches due to too much scrub-a-dub and not enough air filtration left me a bit out of sorts this afternoon, but I took a very hot shower and shaved and I felt MUCH better.

We got hit HARDCORE by a winter storm last night/this morning.  Last I checked, the snow was above my ankles already–it’s a winter wonderland, and it’s FREEEEEEZING.  It’s supposed to hit -42 F with windchill tonight.  BRRRRRRR!  I get that I’m a penguin, but I’m not equipped for this sort of weather guys.  I’ve been hiding indoors instead.

I FINALLY!  started on The Neverland WarsAnnelise the PandaPants should be SOOPAH pleased and proud to hear this!  I know, I know, I’ve been slacking…I’m soooooo terrible!  I’m trying, though–hopefully you’ll get some more reviews before I move, guys!  I’m hoping to settle in for some LONG TIME reading tomorrow, so fingers crossed I get at least one book fully knocked out!

Thursday was my last day of work, but…I don’t think it’s fully sunk in yet?  Actually, I don’t think the fact I’m moving next week has fully sunk in yet either.  That probably won’t happen until Keith gets here and we start loading up the truck.  Maybe not even then.  It might not hit me until we’re out of town, on our way down the road–that’s what happened when I went off to college.  Things just don’t really sink in with me until I’m actively in the middle of doing it, I guess.

Bau and I watched half of Scream (Season 2) when he was here last weekend.  I FINISHED the other half after he left, and lemme just say….OH MY GOODNESS?!?!?!?!  I mean, okay, the last two episodes were weird and didn’t really have much baring on the actual story line–they sort of went off on their own little mini tangent–but I.  LOVE.  This show so hard?!  Anyone else watch it and want to scream with me?!?!?!

I’m also currently watching Fuller House (Season 2).  It’s soopah adorable so far, though I’m only like 3 episodes in.  LOOOOOVE that so many of the shows I grew up watching, are being brought back or given continuations.  SUCH an awesome trend!  I just saw today on facebook, for instance, that Duck Tales will be returning in 2017…..with DAVID TENNANT playing Scrooge McDuck!!!! I mean… I’m SO excited, I can’t even handle this.

So…I went off on a little bit of a tangent myself there–sorry, penguins!  Let’s jump into the books now, yes?!

Bau is coming to town today to get the rest of his stuff (all…two? boxes worth)  I guess we’ll be hanging out or something, I’m not going to make him drive the 6 hours here just to turn around and kick him out for a 6 hour trip back.  We’ve already agreed to be nice to each other while he’s here (there’s been some…moments, lately, of not-so-nice) so I guess if he reneges on his agreement I can kick him out.  😉  But I’m hoping he sticks to the plan lol.

I HAVE FIVE!!!! days of work left and then like three days to clean a bit and then….AND THEN!  Keith will be here.  It just… I don’t even… I’m trying not to think about it too hard, because the closer we get, the more terrified I feel.  Not for any specific reason–I’m not scared about living with him, or anything like that.  But… I’m about to up-heave my entire life?  And that’s terrifying to me, as I’m so used to staying in the safe zone.  This is a GOOD move for me, I know it is–and once we’re on the road, I’ll be fine.  It’s just getting over this little “before” hurdle I’m having trouble with.

My mom had her surgery on Monday.  She had a second carpal tunnel done on her right hand, and an ulnar nerve impingement done on her right elbow.  She’s in this HUGE…er…cast-like thing?  but so far she seems to be doing fine.  She goes back to work today (Saturday).

We had to go in to learn the new safes at work yesterday.  They’re suuuuuuper easy and I probably could have figured out how to do it on my own, buuut it’s probably good we did a bit of training.  Though honestly… I only have five days left?  So it doesn’t really matter one way or another.

And…I think that’s about it!  I have a TON of cover reveals, blitz posts, and other fun stuff scheduled to come in the next few weeks (YAY!)  Also, been working on my reviews–slowly but steadily getting through those ARC backlogs, though… I keep adding more on.  OH WELL, this is my life now!  I’m totally cool with that!

How are you guys?!

I should really start cleaning walls and attempting to get the carpet steamed, but…how does one do that when one’s floor is buried under boxes and one’s walls are mazed in behind the same?

If I’m being honest, I should probably also move the bookcases and DVD stands to the curb and let someone take them–I won’t be needing them, or have room for them.  And the couch; that can go, too.  But I’m only one person?  I don’t think I could lift the heavier things on my own…

***Edit–having considered this after writing, I put up a note at work letting people know I have these things and they’re free to good homes if they come with transportation and help lifting the things.  That might work.***

I have been scheduling blog posts for the upcoming weeks, so no worries–you’ll still be seeing me at least a little this month!  I’m not sure how much I’ll be on during the journey and holidays–I guess it’ll depend on what the plans are and what else is happening.  I will try to pop on and respond to comments, though, so don’t be shy–feel free to spam me like maniac penguins!

Wyoming introduced a new lottery game today, so I got to wear the big floofy hat at work.  My mom also wore one down at our sister store–Lucky for Life team, for the win!  See, look how adorable we are:

Sooooo…

I changed up my blog a little bit.  Not much.  I mean, I’m not even sure you’ll  have NOTICED, it’s such a small change.

But if you HAVE been paying attention and you DID notice…let me know what you think?!  I sort of decided very very late Thursday night that I wanted–nay, NEEDED–to do this.  I guess it was time?  My blog wasn’t feeling very seamless and cohesive to me anymore, and I wanted to change that, so…
