They switched our network over yesterday to something new, we are upgrading or something... and in the process they blocked more sites. Like Facebook, which was previously allowed. Apparently they reached their quota of blocked sites and when they added to it, some were knocked off. Or they forgot to include some in their list of blocked sites, because now I'm able to access my blog! I wonder how long this will last? Probably not long, but I thought while I have access, I might as well post something, right?

This week has been crazy busy at work! Why yes, I should be working rather than posting, but this will only take 5 minutes and I need a break to switch gears. :) I've had 3 meetings today, which severely impaired my ability to work as well. They also added to my list of things to do at each meeting. Sheesh.

End of month is just a week away now, and the pressure is on!

In other news, I told a friend about the frog incident (post below in case you are behind!) and he said, "And after you let it go, a bird probably ate it." What a JERK! I don't want to know that stuff, I was blissfully unaware and would have been happy to remain so. Such is the circle of life if it did.

I just finished reading John Grisham's newest book - Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer. It is written towards teenagers, but hey, I've read all of his books so far and I wasn't going to let that stop me! I enjoyed it - it was light, easy to read. It didn't take me long to finish it, and now it is in Alli's hands for her reading pleasure. He has another book coming out in October and I can't wait!

I'm currently reading a book with Jeff. Well, not at the same time, but we are sharing it to read in the same time frame. I'm sure he will finish it before I do! It is definitely NOT light reading. Resurrection by Leo Tolstoy. I suppose it is light reading compared to his other books - War and Peace and Anna karenin - both of which Jeff has read, but neither of which I have. Who knows, maybe I will fall in love with Tolstoy after this book and decide to read one of them.

There are two other books I want to get but will wait until I'm done with the one I'm reading now. Anyone reading anything good they would like to recommend?

Haha, I just bought Grisham's book a couple days ago too, along with Dean Koontz's new Frankenstein (currently reading & already half way through it). Koontz is my fav author :)
