Look what I got! The library had its semi-annual sale and I picked up these 4 books:
- Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
- Lady Oracle by Margaret Atwood
- The Observations by Jane Harris
- The Ten Year Nap by Meg Wolitzer
I’m having a harder time finding books I want to buy from the library sale than I used to. Also, I may already have Slaughterhouse-Five. In the moment I couldn’t remember so I bought it anyway.
I haven’t written anything personal in some time so let’s catch up!
My daughter is starting Junior High next year so we’ve been touring her new school and having lots of “the last one at elementary school” events. It’s making me quite emotional. I’m okay though.
I’m doing lots of gardening and running now that the weather has improved and by improved I mean “the snow has melted.” I have some vegetable seeds in the garden. I hope I can make a salad soon. I did a race this morning and although it nearly killed me I made good time. I should really do more. It forces me to be with people. To celebrate I bought donuts.
I’m still unemployed. Looking at the jobs out there, there are few that aren’t “truck drivers wanted.” I do not think I should drive a big rig. I would like to drive the Google street view car though. I wonder how you get that job. I’m still waiting for a call back from my old job. My daughter would rather I wait until September to work since it interferes with my driving her around all summer.
Next week is Mother’s Day apparently. (Is it Mothers’ or Mother’s? Seems like it should be Mothers’ since there are many mothers.) If anyone knows what to get my mom, please let me know.
That’s all for now. What’s new with you?
