Well, hello there. I hope your Memorial Day weekend has been safe and happy. We didn't do anything for the holiday, no cookout or get-together or anything like that. Hubby's been working all day for the past several days at his parents, rebuilding their deck/porch/ramp. Ty and Casey were both hanging out here today, playing video games and chitchatting. It was nice to have a mellow day for once, without Casey's drama ruining things.
Update on that drama, because I know you're all on pins and needles about it. PrincessRoommate still has not officially moved out. She spends almost no time there but her stuff is all still there, packed in boxes, waiting to be relocated. She supposedly has been approved for her own apartment somewhere and can move into it June 1. HOPEFULLY she gets her crap moved out next weekend and this mess can be done. Casey's at least in a better mood about things.
Ty's working a temporary second job. I can't remember if I mentioned this in my last Natters, but he's helping a former coworker get his own machine shop started up, and is working for that guy whenever he's not working at his regular full-time job.
Works been ridiculous again. It's the whole sucky management thing again. I've pretty much cut ties with 2nd shift for the four hours that my 12 hour shift overlaps their 8 hour shift. The 2nd shift supervisors are spineless and let those people get away with anything so I'm taking the super mature and professional option of dealing with them by ignoring them. lol I've had an awesome work schedule for this holiday weekend though, so I guess I can't complain too much. I had my two days off, worked Saturday, have had Sunday and Monday off for the holiday, and now Tuesday and Wednesday will be my regular days off again. Wheee!
I've been playing Wizard101 a lot during all this time off. I've been struggling with my moody angry funk again lately and this occupies my mind, keeps me from wallowing in my pity party thoughts. It's been quite fun and relaxing to allow myself to do this. I still can't get hubby or the boys to play but oh well, I'm still having fun alone. My newest, and current favorite character is up to level 22 already. Whee!
Apologies for the slightly blurry picture! I've been taking more of my blog pics on my phone lately and didn't even realize this one was so shoddy. Doh! Anyway, this book came out last week and I bought it as soon as I saw it, and started reading it that same day. I'd just recently started reading the second book in Rick Riordan's Apollo series but this one has bumped that one back onto the shelf. This is the second one in the Dark Artifices series, the one that follows Julian and Emma and the LA shadowhunters. I really enjoyed the first one, mainly because of Mark and the fairie elements. So yes, I'm really looking forward to this one! It's a beast though, 699 pages. Ugh.
I don't think I've shown these two cards. Gah, this is what happens when I don't post regularly. This first one was for a little boy family member.
And this one was for hubby's parents' 53rd wedding anniversary. It's similar to the anniversary card I did for my brother earlier this year, but I switched out the knight and castle for a Viking theme since hubby's dad is the one who brings all this Viking-ness to the family.
I know I haven't shown these yet. I made these thank you cards for a bloggy friend who just wrapped up a huge giveaway. I think you can guess who that was . . .
Alrighty, well it's getting late and I have a large and exciting book to read.
Have you read any of the Shadowhunter books?
Are you a fan of YA (young adult) paranormal/fantasy books?
