Doing a favor for a friend

A friend asked me to do a favor for her at 4 am today. I said no problem. Alarms all set, I went to sleep. I woke up at 1 am, and realized that it was possible she meant 4 am Eastern time. Yup! Thankfully, I realized it in plenty of time to get it done. Now I get to sleep in, feeling accomplished.

In theory, that is. I got the order done, but the card I tried to use didn’t want to work, so I had to fully wake up to figure out why and what to do. Then I tried to email her the confirmation that I’d accomplished my middle of the night task, but my address book on my email account decided that it wasn’t going to work. I had to hand type her email address in. Thankfully, I knew it, but suddenly blanked on if it was yahoo or gmail. I guessed right.

Of course, by then I had to get up and use the bathroom, because what else does one do in the middle of the night?

I got back in bed and had to find extra blankets since our heatwave finally broke and my toes were cold.

I didn’t eat much dinner because I wasn’t hungry at dinner time. I don’t want to get up and eat at this time of night because I don’t want to let my stomach think that it’s an option. I’ll drink water, so I’ll have to get up and use the bathroom again in an hour or so.

I don’t know where my purse is with my kindle on it, and I don’t want to fall asleep with my reading light on, so I decided to write here instead of read. It didn’t make me tired, though. I think I’m going to have to bite the bullet and find the purse.

Now that I’ve found the purse by getting up and turning on the light, I should be fully awake.

And I just remembered that my daughter reminded me right before bedtime that I told her I’d drive her and a friend somewhere with no parking in the morning. At least her version of morning starts closer to noon than most people’s version of morning.

It’s 2 am now. I am going to stop writing and read for a little while. Hopefully I’m tired enough that a little while won’t take me to morning. Goodnight!

Changing my Oasis cover

When I got my oasis, in September, I loved it.  I wanted to protect it as best as I could.  I went searching for a cover.  I found this cover that totally suits me.  It was about $18 at the time.  That was about what they were running, then.  Not much cheaper.

Since I was going on a trip and I planned on reading poolside, I decided that I should find a cover that I don’t really care about, so it wouldn’t get ruined.  I found two cases for under $5 each.  I ended up not changing them out, since I really love the cover that I originally got.  You can see that the edges are a tad worn, but I’ll wait until it’s beaten up a little more before changing it out.  The brand new covers are in a spot where I won’t lose them when it’s time for a change.

What Are You Reading Wednesday

I finished my most recent audiobook, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.  I have The Punishment She Deserves on Libby, so I may have to work on that, since it’s due for bookclub on June 26.

I am reading Highlander’s Forbidden Lass as an ARC for Fiona Faris.

I have A Trail Through Time for just fun.

I am still carrying Daisy Jones and the Six around in my bag, and The BFG is part of my Roald Dahl books catch up.

What are you reading this weekend?

I haven’t been driving, so my two audiobooks aren’t being touched. They are A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and The Wedding Guest.

I am actually making progress on Daisy Jones and the Six.

I still haven’t settled on a kindle book.

I have to make a trip to the library to return a few completed books and pick up a hold. I may stay there for a while and read. I haven’t decided what the book will be, yet.

What are you reading Wednesday

The current audiobook is American Prison. I should be finished tomorrow or Friday.

Beloved is the book for Sunday’s bookclub. I am still in the first chapter, though.

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores is a quick funny book that I can really relate to. I am laughing through the whole thing.

I still have not much going on the Kindle.

I checked out a bunch of children’s books based on my (post) from earlier this week. I am working on getting through several of them.

Whatcha reading Friday

I am working on two different audiobooks – American Prison, and The Wedding Guest.  I am switching back and forth because one gets too heavy, and the other has an obnoxious narrator, but I need to know how the murder mystery ends.

I am still lugging around Daisy Jones and the Six.  It’s becoming more of a joke than I thought it would.  I really thought I would have finished it by now.

I am finishing Holly Freakin’ Hughes on Kindle today.  I’ll have something else chosen by the end of the weekend, I am sure.
