Another short R&R, and not one I can blame on BEA! It just... is. This week was a good one for me. I had four days off (yay twelve-hour shifts!) and lazed about the house for all four. Lovely. For whatever reason, those four days didn't end up being very productive, blog-wise. Still not sure what that was all about. Anyways, here's the lowdown on the week.

I was very good in the stuff department this week. I only bought one book, and that was because Sunny and my mom were going to get it signed for me. As if I could pass up a signed book!
