Daisy Update (32) and Book Haul (9)

So this was a mostly uneventful week. FINALLY!
Well, other than that Monday had me running around trying to keep all the patients on the nursing floor I was working at alive. Other than that I had it mostly under control somewhat. And there seemed to be a daily delivery of books, all my pre-orders always seem to come in at the same time, which was nice to come home to :)

On Saturday I went over to see the house one of my friends bought and it needs a lot of work, but it's going to be beautiful! They have a garden and everything, it's so great! I'm so happy for them :D And it's about a 5-10 minute walk from where I live, so we'll be drinking LOTS OF TEA together! :) Both of our boyfriends are frequently busy in the evenings, so we'll keep each other company :)

While you're reading this, I'm actually working, it's time for another 24-hour shift and this week I'll be working the night shift *sigh*. Oh well, maybe I'll actually catch some sleep.

I hope you're having a more relaxing Sunday than I am!
