Do You Want The Good News Or The Bad?

I've been waiting all my time blogging to write this post. You ready?

I GOT A JOB!


That's the good news. The great news! I've been looking and looking and being rejected and rejected...not fun. I finally got a job and it's a huge relief off the old bank account! Phew! And what did I do to celebrate the happy occasion?


Yep, I went book shopping! Full price, hard covers aside, no coupons, book shopping! It was glorious. I was in there 10 minutes and managed all of these. 

The bad news? 

Yeah, there's always bad news, isn't there? Now that I have this full time job I wont have nearly as much time to read, blog and blog visit. Oh, don't worry, I love this blogging community way too much to just fall of the radar, it'll just be much harder to find time. So, if I'm not around as much for a while, don't worry, I still love you. I'm guessing it'll just be a matter of learning some time management before things seem normal around here. 

Happy Reading!

  6. Congratulations! That's so awesome. Plus you got some amazing books so its a win-win. I found that I listen to more audio books now that I don't have as much time to read. I still average around 4 books a week, just 2 of them are audio.

  11. I'm so excited for you. But dang it I was just going to call and see if you could help Momma watch the kids while we are out of town next week. Dang! Maybe you could still catch one of Seth's games since you will be the only one that understands them. Talk to you soon

  14. Congrats on getting a job! There are many bloggers who work and blog about books, so I guess it must be possible to do both. There are always evenings and weekends if you don't have time during the day.

    1. Yes, I know it's possible. I just need to figure it out.

  16. I JUST COMMENTED AND IT DIDN'T GO. However... i will suck it up to CONGRATULATE you, becuase... dude! Not working is so stressful, you can't even enjoy the free time. For real. So... good job celebrating you. I feel like you were victorious in celebrating. Also... body and soul.

    Congratulations! =D I can totally relate, by the way: one reason I've been scarce lately as well is that I recently started a new job, and although I do love it, boy, does it keep me busy! LOL!

    But I'll keep an eye peeled for any new posts and will continue to comment here. =)

  20. Congrats on the new job! It's so true that the "free time" when you're not working doesn't feel like. I hope you really like what you get to do!
    And fun books. :) Maybe you are the one who originally recommended The Ghost & The Goth. I'm in the middle of the second one right now. Such a fun series.

    1. Yeah, I kept telling myself to enjoy that free time but didn't do so well. Now I miss it, of course. ;)

      I'm so glad you're enjoying The Ghost and the Goth series. I love it and can't wait to see how it all ends.
