Limbo Week Coninues

Still working my way through "limbo week" (between Christmas and New Years).  Got my new Nook set up, downloaded my first e-book - Maria Zannini's True Believers - and read it in one night.  It was great.  Now I can start the book on the top of my TBR pile, Mary Kennedy's Stay Tuned for Murder.  I really loved Mary's first two in the Talk Radio Mysteries series so I'm looking forward to this one.

In the meantime, I used yesterday to tear through all the file drawers in the house (two large desks and a file cabinet), updating files and rearranging.  This is part of my effort to turn our part time home office into my new regular workspace.  I'm making progress, I can almost see the top of the desk.  I'd forgotten there was actually a wood surface under there.

I also compiled all the vet bills from the past two years, which included Chance's back surgery in 09 and Brandi's eye surgery last summer.  Just out of curiousity, I ran a quick total.  Then I hid the file.  Not sure my husband heart could take it.

So, how are you spending your limbo week?

Groaner of the day: Two boll weevils grew up in the Deep South. One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor. The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much. The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.

Sounds like you're having a very busy and productive week in limbo. Me, I'm still lost in limbo. I understand about the vet bills. I don't even want to add ours up for Brisco this year alone, not counting last year when he had to have surgery after the horse kicked him. Our four-legged children can be expensive (but worth it). Cute groaner.

Mason - Brisco got kicked by a horse? Ouch. You definitely know what I mean about those vet bills.

That groaner's an oldie but a goodie.

I would hate to guess on the vet bill.

Hi Linda,
Ahhh, I envy you the clean(er) desk. I've just been wading through the post-Christmas debris. Excess was one of my 4th grade's vocabulary words and it definitely applies to us.

Mostly we've just been happily snowbound this week. It's a good excuse to take it easy, read, write and play on the internet. This past semester has been unusually hectic, so I'm wallowing in downtime right now.

Belated Congrats on the retirement!

Well, I finished all my lingering work at the office today, so tomorrow should be easy. I see a longer lunch hour.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Kim - You don't want to know.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Mary C - Thanks and enjoy your wallowing.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Dru - All caught up? I'm impressed. Wish I could join you for that long lunch.

How can you read so fast!? LOL. That's amazing.

Ref: vet bills

What can you do? They're family. I think about all the damage Iko did, but when it gets down to it, I'd rather lose furniture than have him suffer from illness or disease.

How is Brandi's eye?
