[Crazy Reads] Mai 2012

Nach meinem heutigen Verwöhnprogramm (Massage) habe ich mich jetzt dazu entschlossen, bewaffnet mit einer leckeren Tasse Ingwertee, meine Leseliste für denn Mai zusammenzustellen. Auch in diesem Monat bin ich mit meiner Leseleistung recht zufrieden, auch wenn so viel los war und ich gerne mehr geschafft hätte. Aber wer will das nicht?

[SuB-Zuwachs] Manchmal muss man sich einfach belohnen

Heute gibt es meinen Neuzugangspost einmal nicht am Sonntag, da ich wahrscheinlich morgen nicht die Zeit finden werde, ihn zu schreiben und zu posten. Außerdem ist morgen Muttertag und da möchte ich einfach auch meiner Mama etwas Gutes tun und sie ein wenig im Haushalt usw. unterstützen.
Zudem komm ich momentan auch einfach aus dem Arbeiten und Feiern nicht mehr heraus. Gerade habe ich nach meinem zweiwöchigen Urlaub (kann man nicht das ganze Jahr Urlaub haben?) meine erste Arbeitswoche hinter mir und könnte schon wieder Urlaub gebrauchen. Irgendwie find ich das immer erschreckend, wie viel Papierkram sich ansammelt, wenn man einfach mal keine zwei Wochen auf Arbeit ist und der Schreibtisch sich danach schon unter den Bergen von Papier gen Boden biegt. *brrr* Daneben springe ich sozusagen schon von einer Geburtstagsfeier zur nächsten. Heute auch wieder. Der Mai ist irgendwie ein ganz schlimmer Geburtstagsmonat. Irgendwie bin ich immer froh, ein Winterkind zu sein. *hehehe* Aber das wo…
