Suddenly Sunday - A Bit of Everything

Happy Sunday everyone.  For those of you dealing with Daylight Savings Time today - I hope you picked up an hour of sleep.  I didn't, my body still knows what time it is.

This last week has certainly been an interesting one for me.  I had no work on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday due to the weird/massive October snowstorm and widespread power outages.  We never lost power during it but many of my friends are still without power more than a week later.  You would think only 2 days of work would be great - but somehow the short weeks always end up being even crazier.  I had a job interview the day I went back (for a new position within where I work) and we might know the outcome of that by the end of this week.  Then Friday night my boyfriend and I went out with some friends and I went to my first hockey game - our local AHL team.  It was fun, but we lost.  And now today is all about cleaning/grocery shopping/homework ugh.

Anyhow - to run down what was posted on the blog this week (this was sort of an Abraham Lincoln week):

Coming up this week we have some more US Presidents and First Ladies - John Adams/Abigail Adams and Dolley Madison.

And finally I have the winner selected for The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent.  And the winner is: Jessica Flinders! Congratulations!  I will be sending an email out for your mailing information.  Thanks to everyone who entered!

Hope you all have a great Sunday!

  1. I didn't get an extra hour of sleep either :-(

    Glad to hear you didn't lose power. I can't believe some people are still without it!

    Hope your week goes well. Good luck with the job!

  2. Melissa - I know it is shocking. Most of my friends were told they would have it back by tonight, but a few were told this coming Wednesday. And with it being cold out their houses are getting down into the 40s. Thanks for the well wishes on the job - I thought the interview went well so we will see!

  3. I know this is late but did you get the job? Hope so :)

  4. Jenny - I didn't get it :( but it's ok. One of my good friends actually got it and our director called me in to talk to me about my interview afterward - which left me with a very positive outlook. A lot is going to be happening in the near future at my job and he has his eye out for me to make a move - he said "just be patient".

  5. Aw :( Disappointing to be sure, yet your boss called you in and chatted. That's a great sign. That happened to me a few times, and it always worked out. Good luck :)
