This Week’s Book Haul:
I am 1/2 way though the craziness that is October for me. I have to work 6 days a week through the month which sucks. Every weekend is filled with something: open house, homecoming, ACT. It just never ends. But, once we get through October, things get a bit easier. Until January. Then things go all crazy again!
I had a disagreement with a coworker this week that really bothered me. I am so non-confrontational, so I hated to even have to have the discussion at all. Of course, other people get involved (because teaching high school is just like being in high school) and then before I knew it, everyone had an opinion. I hate when things like that happen. It is a trigger for my OCD because one of my obsessions is that people are talking about me. And when something like this happens, and they really ARE talking about me, my anxiety goes nuts. I keep hoping that as I get older I won’t care so much or it won’t bother me. Sadly, I am almost 37 and I still care. Even worse, things will be awkward on Monday at work. I have to interact with this person so its not like I can just avoid her until tensions lessen. Sigh…next week is gonna suck!
This week I was declined for a book on net galley! I was so sad!! I haven’t been declined in so long. It was with a publisher that has approved every request I have made with them so far. I have an 87% feedback ratio! Add that to my meltdown over work? Yeah, I was a hot mess. My husband was like “Babe. Just buy the book. Whats the big deal?” and I was like “They don’t like me!!!!”. My husband is pretty sure I am a crazy person now. Its been a rough week to be married to me!
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
