The Sunday Salon - What a Week, Again!

The Sunday Salon.com
First off, I want to apologize for being gone so much this month. With the new part-time job, my time has been severly limited. They have scheduled me uber-hours, which is great money-wise, but time-wise it kind of stinks. Oh well....I plan on keeping up the hours at least until after Christmas. My last car payment is in November (Yeah!) and hopefully, we'll be back in the black soon. After that, all the extra money is just cake. And we really need that right now.

This week controversy brewed in my husband's fantasy football league. Lord, who knew a bunch of grown men could act like such babies! My husband was in first place in both points and win/loss too. Having a great season....and a little squabble started between the commissioner and another team. Commish decides to take his ball and go home....otherwise, disbanded a league that has been around for over 8 years. And this isn't just a little money either. Last year 1st place garnered almost $2000. Mike got $1500 for second. And I'm not really sure what 3rd took. So he is more than a little ticked off. I swear, I'm ready to shoot them all!!

Not much on the reading front. I still have a couple of reviews to post, and I'm almost done with Touch the Dark by Karen Chance. I have sunk into this rut of paranormal, but I haven't found a bad book yet, so I guess I will keep reading!!

Basically, I just wanted to say "Hi! I'm still alive." And know that I will posting much more frequently. I miss it when I don't!!

Happy Reading and Happy Sunday!!

I am sure it will be such a relief to have the car paid off. I know it was when I paid off mine. One less bill to worry about! :-)

I've been doing a little paranormal reading myself lately. It's been a nice change from some of the other books I've sunk my teeth into lately.

Have a great week, Stephanie!

Stephanie! *waves* It's great to see you posting again. Don't worry, though, you really don't have to apologize for being absent. I look forward to those reviews.

"Lord, who knew a bunch of grown men could act like such babies!"...this just cracked me up! If I was your husband, I'm sure I'd be mighty pissed off, too, but somehow your description of it all just left me laughing!

Have a wonderful week, Stephanie! Hopefully with a little down time just for you!

Glad you're alive. :) We've missed you around, but I think this month has been particularly crazy for a lot of people. I haven't really been reading or blogging all the much either. And good luck with the car!! That is the best feeling to get your last payment in and not have to worry about it anymore! If only I could convince hubby of that...

I know you like Neil Gaiman, he has a new book which has reviewed very well, The Graveyard Book. It is a young adult book but people still really like it. I am waiting to get it.

I know the feeling we have a relatively new director who has it in mind to redo everything where I work, you turn around and a new idea pops into her head.

No need to apologize for not posting as frequently. We're just happy to have you stop by when you can. Hang in there, only 2 months to Christmas! :)

LOL! I can relate to the fantasy football story as my DF is in one and they are the same way. So it just isn't your husband :)
I love a good paranormal lately and having been reading them a lot more than usual. Have a good reading week!

Hang in there! We're all here when things settle down a bit. :D

Cool that you'll have one less expense. Car payments can be significant and always a relief to have off the table.

I'm glad you're getting plenty of hours. Sorry the reading time has dipped, as a result. I think it's amazing that you're getting anything read at all.
