2. I will say I had so much fun at the Scholastic sale yesterday. It reminded me a bit of ALA, where everyone lines up outside the doorway and waits with bated breath. :) Inside, it was almost chilly and although somewhat organized, I still had to look at each aisle. I only had an hour (less than, actually, since they were late opening the door), and I was feeling the pressure of finding what I wanted. Still, I ended up with 15 books for only $42 -- nice! Each of the kiddos got three books of their own and a cool US atlas to share. I got their teachers two books each for the end of the year; I got a book for a friend and one for my mom; and I got two books for me (I've already read them, but I wanted to own both). So yes, it was a successful 55 minutes!
3. Speaking of reading, I'm currently reading an ARC I got from the publisher (I sign up whenever I see giveaways in PW) -- and I'm really enjoying it! I also got an e-galley I've been wanting from Netgalley...good reading times. :)
4. DH is majorly stressed. Part of it is his own doing -- he wants to do a mountain biking trip, so he's having to finish the same amount of work in a shorter time period. Still, he's been ridiculously busy with work lately, and it's definitely affecting him. :( I feel for him, but there's not a lot I can do. He's operating at the busy-ness level I see during first draft week...the difference being that I usually have another fifteen things to handle on top of work, heh. But I know that, generally speaking, men and women handle work differently, and most men are single-focus folks. Most women, however, can multi-task. Of course, my ability to multi-task effectively depends on my own tiredness factor. Anyway, I'm hoping he's successful in finishing in time to take his trip.
Hope it's a good Friday and a lovely weekend for you!
