Home for the Haunting - 16%
Home For the Haunting - Juliet Blackwell

OK I love that she's volunteering with an organization ("Neighbors Together") that does home repairs/renovations for the elderly and disabled. I used to do that through my work with an organization called "Hearts and Hammers", although we unskilled workers were limited to scraping, sanding, painting, and planting the flowerbeds. It was really a lot of fun, and something that I felt had an immediate and lasting impact. 

 

I did get a terrible case of poison ivy all over my face from it one year, though.

Reading progress update: I've read 15%.American Noir with a hard boiled FBI guy being all no nonsense and probably about to have his mind blown
Huntress Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff

This FBI tale is so Joe Friday it took me a while to realise that it’s set in this decade. The man character is a thinker who still seems to have no awareness of how irrepressibly male his perceptions and assumptions are.

 

Im intrigued by the woman in black who seems to be the huntress of the title.

 

Its  a relief to move to this find-the-baddy. Kind of noir' filled with attitude but free of real introspection after having lived in the long night of Scandi Noir.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things - Jenny Lawson

So according to BL, I started reading this December 16, 2017. That means it took me 9 months to finish this wonderful book. Since Jenny Lawson discusses her struggle with depression and anxiety disorders at length (in the best, funniest way possible) I had to take several long breaks when my anxiety and depression were not putting me in the right head space to enjoy reading it. But really, this book is hilarious and just what I needed during these past two weeks of total chaos in my life. 

 

I am not exaggerating when I say my "vacation" was surrounded with nothing but Murphy's law. Car accident, cancelled concerts, delayed flights, stomach flu, etc, etc. All unrelated to this review, but whatever, I'll do what I want. Furiously Happy does remind us to laugh at the absurdity of our lives and most of all, to remember that the lows eventually get better.

Aaaand just like that I'm back home, my trip to London was over in a blink of an eye. I had the best time seeing Mamma Mia!! So much singing and dancing at the end.

Spoke too soon

It turns out I'll be taking the day off, but not the way I hoped. Nausea sucks. I thought it'd pass and then almost couldn't finish brushing my teeth. Here's hoping the Pepto works and the day improves. -_-
