Dog mushing, Feb 12/12
It's time once again for Sunday Night Chit-Chat, hosted by the lovely Carla!
What are you…
Reading? “Malled” by Caitlin Kelly. The memoir of a journalist turned retail slave. Due to the downturn in the economy, Caitlin Kelly, who worked for a NY newspaper, turns to a big outfitting company in order to bring in some much needed cash. She spent two years with the company (part-time) before finally having enough. This is her story of what retail staff are expected to do in the face of low wages, no benefits, constantly shifting HQ expectations, and customers. Quite enjoyable, if not a little repetitious at points.
I’m also perusing some of Oprah’s books, those compilation ones she puts out every year or so. Not a manic fan of Oprah’s, but I do like her magazine and these books a lot. I can always find something “speaking” to me when I’m flipping through them.
Watching? Nothing special, my usual HGTV/DIY selections. J
Listening to? The washing machine in the spin cycle at the moment!
Cooking/Baking? Will just be reheating some chicken korma and rice for dinner. Yum! That, or making an omelette.
Happy you accomplished this week? Purchasing almost all my required textbooks; starting my countdown for school (168 days); washing some lovely dogs yesterday at the HSY fundraiser, including a puppy called Moon and a beautiful brindle Mastiff-X called Harley.
Looking forward to next week? A few extra hours at work and a hopefully quiet week. Increasing my daily walks to work. Hopefully will walk three or four times this week.
Thankful for today? Fixed the blog after hours of frustration. A reminder to just slow down a little and READ things more carefully. And not to mess around with something that was working fine in the first place! :P An hour’s walk with a good friend.
