So I am two weeks into my LOA and climbing the walls. I hate being contained. Don’t get me wrong- I get out with Warren and the family, but it’s odd not being able to do everything I want when I want to. Being able to drive has spoiled me terribly. Today I took a taxi to the library because I couldn’t think with Boo climbing my back and I wanted to do some posts (btw, Boo literally climbs my back when I am at my computer. She has to supervise). I love her, but there are times when it simply isn’t congruent with writing a review.
The healing process has gone fantastic and I am walking more, albeit slower than my usual pace. I feel like I could drive, but have one more week before I am supposed to. I promised Warren I wouldn’t do anything stupid. It just irks that the tiny things in life are such a pain right now. For instance- Boo needs more food. This is a ten minute car ride, and usually no problem for me…. except that it is now. I don’t want to bother my family, and Warren and I have forgotten several days in a row. While this would be a tiny errand, it’s become complicated. Also grocery shopping can only be done with my adoring husband. Finally, is it weird that I want to work? I miss Wal mart. I miss my coworkers and regular customers and interacting with people that are neither family nor feline. Ugh, I probably sound like a horrible person. Forgive me?
Now on to better topics: Books!!!! I have bought 17th suspect by James Patterson and cannot wait to dive in. I also preordered The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan. I am super excited about that one too, though this is my least favorite series of his. Then of coarse there’s How I Resist coming out on the 15th, and a couple more May ARC’s. Finally, I could not resist buying The Secret Book and Scone Society. I am hoping I can get to all of these quickly, but as always ARC’s come first. In fact, I just finished The Optimist’s Guide to Letting Go, and the review will be up today. Then it’s on to Owen Laukkanen’s Gale force; I adore the Steven’s and Windmere series, and cannot wait to see what he does here. Finally, my Facebook book club is going to have a May book- don’t know what it is yet, but I am excited! If nothing else this should keep me sane until the post-op doctor visit.
So that’s me, what’s up with you?
