Waiting Patiently For The Mail

My books still aren't here.

Granted, I only ordered them Tuesday or Wednesday and I managed to get two books, in good condition, shipped to my door for under $10. I guess that's the downside of online shopping. The shipping is never as fast as I want it to be.

While I'm waiting, I'm continuing to work on reading The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. It's an extremely long book. Now I'm not a person that's intimidated by long books, but to give you an idea of how long this book is, I'm nearly 500 pages in and I'm not yet at the halfway point. Wrap your brain around that one. The novel's almost 1,400 pages long. Pretty incredible, isn't it?

So yes, the week is working out beautifully. Bethany starts her vacation tomorrow after what hopefully will be only an hour long orientation for the new company that's taking over her office. I believe that our one true appointment for the weekend has been postponed, so life is indeed good.

If only my books would get here...
