So for 3 weeks, I haven’t hauled anything. This week was insane! Woohoo!
ARCs thanks to the authors and publishers:

I’m starting to get nervous about the new job. I officially start back on August 3rd. I haven’t seen inside the school (COVID meant that I interviewed via phone). I’m not sure what to expect from the students/teachers. If I think about it all too much, I start crying! What if I don’t make any work friends? What if the drive ends up being too long? What if the kids are horrible? I have a strong need for people to like me. Its rooted in my past and it is just part of who I am. I wish I didn’t care, but I do. I care a LOT. I’m tearing up just writing this, so I am going to move to another topic.

Wednesday I had a great get together with my two former work buddies. It was so awesome to just catch up with them. We ate, drank and gossiped for 3 hours. I could have stayed all day.

It finally rained here, and it really made up for not raining. There were some strong storms on Wednesday and a few scattered on Thursday. Now the grass has grown like crazy after the weeks long drought. So, cutting the grass is on the agenda this weekend (not for me-I am VERY allergic to grass. If it touches my feet for too long when I’m standing, I break out in major hives. A freshly mowed lawn is my worst nightmare).

This week I have a doctors appointment, a staff meeting, and I am hoping my new (original?) hearing aids come in. I decided to go back to the super techy ones because the sound quality was just so much better and they fit better. However, the visibility to others still causes anxiety. I’m trying to work through it. Wish me luck!

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!

  1. You have a lot of things going on in your life. New jobs are always scary. I was nervous every new school year, for many of the reasons you mentioned. Just remember, we are here cheering for you.

  2. Samantha, my advice would be: wait for the first day and don’t imagine the worst! You’ve survived all these years and I bet you had difficult days so you’ll survive this day too! Cheers girl! Sending positive vibes!

  3. I’m certain it is not easy but don’t look for trouble. Think about the things you are worried about in what will you do if that happens, how will you handle it? What are your options? For some reason, I always go through a bunch of scenarios in my head and how I will handle it so I am confidant in most situations since I know my response? I find the analyzing easier than worrying. And if the drive is too long you can enjoy more audiobooks? That’s not a problem, that’s a gift in my world. I hope everything works out great. Great haul – Enjoy some great reads this week!

  4. You’re going to be super busy this week but I hope you get through everything planned with ease! It’s been very nice here in Southern California, so no rain for us but I could definitely use a break from all this sun. It’s hot as hell. Have a great week, Sam!

  5. I hope you can still relax a bit – I used to spend most of my last two weeks of the holiday in school organising my classroom and preparing for the coming year. I’m sure you will find some members of staff you can befriend. In the meantime, look after yourself:)).

  6. Good luck making friends at your new job. It is stressful starting somewhere new so I totally understand your jitters. I can’t wait for Archangel’s War too! I’m also excited for the new Karin Slaughter but I have to read the previous one first. Reading the description made me nervous for that installment. I heard it was intense so I’ve put it off. Have a lovely week, Sam!
