So…I think it makes sense for me to hold off on posting these every week, and wait until I’ve accumulated ALL TEH BOOKS EVER!  because…I’m not currently BUYING books, and therefore (usually) only get like three a week.

Except this week, because my inbox EXPLODED with all the pretties annnnnnd I browsed Edelweiss the other day in a fit of insanity annnnnnnnnd somehow I managed to get ALL TEH BOOKS without actually buying anything?!  YAY ME FOR THAT!

We may or may not be starting training for the new store (yes, that’s right, the one I’ll be managing) next week.  I’ll find out…uhm…Monday at the latest, if we’ll be starting training next Wednesday.  It’s cutting it close, for sure…things are getting down to the wire and BEJEEEEEEPERS, time is moving quickly!

Keith and I will be going to see Logan tomorrow after I get off work.  I’m off this Saturday (YAY?!) so we’re going to take advantage of that and get outta the apartment for a bit.  We’ve also got a trip back to Colorado in the works for this upcoming summer.  His mom is attempting to get a mini family reunion thing going with a trip into the mountains for Grandma Donna’s 90th! birthday; so far, there are 11 of us going.  Most of whom I haven’t met yet.  I’m pretty excited, though–getting out and AWAY will be awesome.

My mom and I decided to be our sexy awesome selves again the other day, and this happened:

Yeah, you know we rock it.

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?!

I am so freaking tiiiiiired, penguins.  Because I’m training to be manager, I’m working 6 days a week.  Now, some of those days are MUCH shorter than others…but that doesn’t mean I’m not exhausted.  I mean, I know I’m going to have to get used to it, and quickly–it sounds like I’m going to be working 6 days a week for the rest of ALL TIME (or at least, the rest of my days with this company, which could be a while)…and it’ll be more consistent hours, proooooobably something like 9am-5pm… so… I need to suck it up, right?

But right now, I’m tired.  And that’s okay.

I honestly don’t have all that much to talk about right now.  Like I said, I’ve been working like a maniac since… a week after I got here to Indy.  Keith and I currently don’t have days off together (often, at least) so we haven’t even really had time to do much aside from go to work and come home.  We spend the evenings together, at least–obviously on our computers, but we generally watch a movie or tv show or something as well.

We haven’t even gotten the apartment all sorted out yet!  We’re working, right now, on finding a shelf (or shelves?) for our DVDs.  We have one we want to get picked out–we just need to save up money and order it from amazon.  Then we need to find some more bookshelves–I think we’ll probably just go to Walmart and get more from them, as we already have two of the cheap ones and that way they’ll all match.  So, yeah, this means a lot of our apartment is currently still in boxes.  Which is fine, it’s not a BIG deal…but it doesn’t necessarily feel like “home” quite yet either.  Hopefully soonish we’ll be able to fix that.

And….yeah, I think that’s about it on the updates front.  Basically, I am a very tired penguin–and that’s going to probably be my life for a while to come.  YAY me!  At least I’m still managing to fit in reading, and blogging–though honestly, I haven’t blog-hopped in aaaaages and I miss it so much.  I really ought to carve out some time in my evenings to do that again…

For now, let’s talk about the BOOKS, shall we?!

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?!

But really, I….don’t have anything to talk about this week because I’m boring and life keeps on trekking and I’m just pushin’ right on through until THE BIG MOVE because…that’s all I’ve got left to do?

So…let’s just get on with the books, huh?  That sounds like an epic amount of fun!

I don’t know if I really have that much to update you all on this week.

There’s a LOOOOOOT of drama happening at work.  And by a lot, I mean there are three or four people who are just making everything miserable for everyone else.  I, for the most part, have managed to stay the hell out of it all–and thank goodness for that, because they’re just… UGHHHHH.  It’s a job, guys–let’s not make it feel like we’re back in middle school, ‘kay?  Please?

My grandma’s having a very rough time of things right now.  Her brother is dying of cancer–it’s spread to his blood and bones, and he’s in a lot of pain.  We’ve known this for a while, but…. The other day, we found out that my aunt, my grandma’s sister, has a tumor on the surface of her brain.  They were supposed to do more scans yesterday, to see if they could get a better image of it.  It’s been a very rough year for my poor grandma overall.

Other than that, I don’t think anything of importance happened this week–it’s been very quiet in my world lately, which I’m not complaining about at all.

How are you guys doing?  Anyone have anything fun planned for next week’s holiday?

In my headphones currently:

So, I took a small amount of time off from reading at the beginning of November–no offense to books or anything, but after how many I read last month, I think my brain needed to kick back a little bit!

I am pleased to say, though–my break is OFFICIALLY OVER and I am back up and running on reading and reviews!  YAY!  Celebrate with me, won’t you?

Theeeeeere, that’s better isn’t it?!

I am already done with my Christmas shopping; I received the last package TODAY, and have already gotten the gifts all wrapped and labeled and beautified.  I know, I know, I’m SUPER EARLY on the Christmas train, but…I like buying my gifts early?  That way I know they’ll get to me in time.  And also, I’ll be moving before Christmas arrives, so…it seemed best.

I realized recently that I can eat a pound of peanut butter by myself in about 3 weeks time.  This seems just a little…I dunno, it seems like a LOT?!  I mean, it’s not a bad thing–I loooooove me some peanut butter!  But a pound in less than a month seems a smidge ridiculous.  I’m not stopping, though–you can’t make me!

I also splurged a little when grocery shopping the other day and bought myself some Hugs and Candy Cane Hershey Kisses…because it’s THE HOLIDAYS and those two flavors are two of the holiday editions that I spend the entire rest of the year looking forward to.  Granted, I think you can now buy Hugs anytime you want, but…THE HOLIDAYS! is when I usually splurge on them.

And I think that’s pretty much it this week, guys!  I bought….. SO MANY BOOKS! this week.  Blame it on stress, if you want to–I think that’s what I’m going to do. 😉

So…why don’t we stop with the jibber jabbers and BRING ON THE BOOKS!

Hello!  It’s me.  I was wondering after all this time if you would like to meet….

TO TALK ABOUT BOOKS, DUH?!?!?!  I mean really, what ELSE would we talk about?  Books.  Books all the time.  Books 24/7.  BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS!

And music.  Because they go hand in hand.

Currently playing on my spotify:

I have done almost ZERO reading since the beginning of the month.  OOPS?!  But I’m loving all the blog-hopping and commenting I’ve been doing, so I guess it’s a good trade off.  Hopefully I’ll figure out a new routine and be able to do both.

I decided last night to rewatch TRUEBLOOD, because why not?!  I only own seasons 1-5…but that means I’m only missing 2 seasons, so when I think of it like that, it’s all good!  I haven’t watched Trueblood in a while, so…it’ll be entertaining to go back through and rediscover my love for the series! (at least, that’s what I’m hoping happens!)

How are you all doing?!  What have you been up to?!  What are you listening to, watching, reading, eating, drinking?!?!?!?!?! (I’m a bit nosy, okay?  I refuse to apologize.)
