home at last!

After a looooong day of travel yesterday, I arrived home at about 4pm yesterday afternoon. It took for freakin' ever to get my stuff unpacked and put away but the upside of that is they gave me most of the leftover food and I froze it so I don't have to cook for awhile. I've had some excellent fish the past two days as well. I still feel tired but last night I slept better than anyone in the history of sleeping! After nearly 2 weeks of petsitting then a week of vacation, I was really tired of strange mattresses. It was glorious. I still feel tired however and have an early night planned so I can try and be cheerful tomorrow at work. I'll just have to let you know how that works out later. I'm not feeling too cheerful right now but tomorrow may be another story.

I visited my mother today but that is it. Now I'm about to go finish a book I've been thinking about all day. A recent edition of Unshelved Book Club featured it and I'm dying to know what happens at the end. It is an ARC but will be published August 5th, Andrew Davidson's The Gargoyle, so I was hoping to finish so I could email the publisher my comments/opinions in the morning. It is weird, dirty in some parts, heartbreaking in others...compulsively readable but not for the squeamish.
