I think Alabama summed it up quite nicely with their 40 Hour Week song. And since I can't locate my tape (it's in storage), here's the only verse I remember.
This is for the ones who drive the big rigs
Up and down the roads
Or the one out in the warehouse
Bringin' in the loads
Or the waitress,
The policeman on patrol
For everyone who works behind the scenes
With a spirit you can't replace
With no machine...
We thank you for your time.
Ha ha...Anny told me to sleep late. Okay, I did...sort of. Woke up at 7, because I wasn't sure if our trash was going to be picked up today or tomorrow. Apparently it's tomorrow, because no one else had theirs out either! So I went back to bed...for 5 minutes. Another hot flash happened, so I got up, fed the dog, cooled off...and decided to stay up. I actually like it early in the morning when everyone is still asleep. I can drink my coffee, blog, check my email, and watch the news before everyone demands my attention.
I updated my website last night, but before I could switch pages and update another one, my PC locked up. So I'll get back to it later.
I also took a look at my TBB list, and good news Ms Katie Blu! I'll be reading Hot Under the Collar next week:) I know; it's ABOUT TIME! Also in the coming weeks, I'll finally be reading Tempting Tess by Regina Carlisle, and for some odd reason, I've left Anny Cook's Daffodil off the list. A severe oversight; don't know how the hell THAT happened! I'll have to squeeze it in there somewhere! And Ms Ashley Ladd...The Perfect Gift will be bought in the next month also. See? I'm finally getting around to everyone! In fact...let me do this:
Sept 8th: Hot Under the Collar-Katie Blu (Yes, I know it's really titled Jewels of the Nile! That's why I can only buy one book this week!)
Sept 15: Isabella's Diary-Anita Birt
Seeing Me-Elyssa Edwards
Crude Oil-Desiree Holt
Sept 22: Cast a Lover's Spell-Claire Thompson
Teach Me-Cindy Spencer Pape
Measure of Healing-Jacquie Roth
Sept 29: Isabella's Story-Anita Birt
Surprised by Desire-Katie Blu
The Perfect Gift-Ashley Ladd
So there's my September schedule of books I'll be reading. And I may switch Cindy and Ashley's books...the Novel Sisterhood has a challenge the last week of every month, and in August I decided to be a reader instead of a writer. No one else was doing mini-reviews. So depending on when the challenge in September is, I'll 'review' Cindy's book. Or Desiree's. Who knows? See? I'm flexible when it comes to my list:)
What's on everyone else's reading list for this week, or even this month? I know...I should get cracking on my next project. But when Life smacks you upside the head with a baseball bat, the characters hole up inside your head and don't want to come out to play. Maybe the stress will be better in a week or so. I hope so. I hate sitting at the computer, my hands on the keyboard, but my mind is blank. I've been able to type a few words here and there, but that's about it. No one wants to talk to me.
So on that note, I'm going to stop rambling and check in with my friends. And when the family wakes up, it will Laundry Goddess time, and doing a few minor housecleaning chores. Hubby will most likely be watching the Star Trek TNG marathon. And frankly, they are showing a couple of my favorite episodes too:) Even on Labor Day, moms don't get the day off...but I'm going to steal some time for myself!
