Well, daughter #2 did get that job she interviewed for at the beginning of the week. Yay! As an entry into law enforcement, she applied for and was offered a job as a emergency dispatcher – that’s the person on the other end of the line when you dial 911 (in the US – I think it’s 999 in the UK). She will be able to do that while she applies to graduate school and hopefully while she’s getting her Master’s degree in Criminal Justice.
My sister and four of my young nephews came to visit this week. We had a very busy time – we spent the day at Carowinds (a large amusement park) all day on Friday and went to an interactive STEM museum called Discovery Place in downtown Charlotte, NC on Saturday. We were all, even the kids, worn out by the time we got home from the museum.
We also celebrated daughter #1’s 25th birthday while everyone was here. We even had a piñata for everyone to pound on, which the boys enjoyed immensely.
So, that was my week – how was yours?
Random House has been filling my TBR with wonderful sounding books: 4 of my ARCs this week came from Random House invitations to read and one came from St. Martin’s Press. It’s a pretty good mix, I think. 😊
Because family was visiting, I didn’t really have time to watch anything new but I hope to watch the new and final season of Locke and Key today on Netflix. It’s a vary interesting show about the Locke family and the mysterious (and magical) keys found in their home than spans back many generations. It’s basically a sci-fi thriller type of story that’s kind a bit scary creepy but not so much so that it gives me nightmares.
