 Not much, really. Being cold? It snowed 5+ inches Friday and I had to go to work in it. It was so cold! We have to walk dogs outside, and our indoor area has no HVAC, so it was probably 45 degrees inside all day :( It sucks! 
 
Yesterday was decorating day, and it was kind of a disaster. I decorated my room and put my little tree up, but when I went to move my bed to plug it in, the entire frame fell apart! I ended up having to tear the frame apart (which involved lots of cursing and sweating and throwing boards around) and put the box spring and mattress on the floor. Who knows when I’ll get a new frame =/ Then we got the heavy ass 10 ft fiber optic tree up into the living room, and found out that our decorations are missing. So our tree is naked until we buy more! I was feeling like a bit of a Scrooge by the end of the day >.<

  1. This is why I never try decorating my room. Things just somehow fall apart -.- I hope you have better luck another day! <3 Eek you got split second! I read that a while ago and my feels are still kinda over the place :|

    Happy reading, Jessi! <33

    • Ahahaa. Next year I’ll probably refuse to decorate it cuz I’ll just be like, REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR?!

      Yeah!! I just started it, can’t wait to dive back into the world :)

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Wow! So many bloggers got After the End! I put a request in as well, but thinking it will come back negative. Edelweiss rejects my requests regularly. So weird too, since my profile states I’m a blogger. Oh well. Happy Reading!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    • Oh no! I can get Harper stuff, but I seem to get rejected for EVERYTHING Penguin. I think it just depends on the person and the pub! It is pretty weird how it’s hit or miss, though.

    • YOU DIDN’T GET IT? :(
      This makes me sad! I already have plans for it or I’d totally give it to you. (Although you can probably con the person I’m sending it to into passing it on!)

      • Well I didn’t ask for it since 1) I’m in the UK right now and 2) I was hoping it would be up on Edelweiss, but it looks like it’s not going to. :(

  3. Looks like you picked up some good ones this week. You’ve got a great boyfriend – I’m planning on roping mine into some books or an Amazon gift card for xmas too :-)

    Sorry about the bed – mines been without frame and box spring for about 6 months now – so I’m really low to the floor right now. Better than no bed I guess.

    • Haha yeah! Dropping some not-so-subtle hints is a good way to start! ;D

      Ugh, I have the same problem. It’s really awkward cuz I’m used to my tall bed, but I suppose I can get used to it until I can get a new one =/

    • Me too! We got the tree trimmings at least, so it’s finished :)

      I’ve been putting it off, and I’m sure it will be a while before I read it still! I suck at finishing series…

      Thanks Mel! <3

  4. Beepbeep, so many awesome reads for you!! :D But I hope you’re able to get a new frame soon, for your room! :) Redecorating is awesome, but it’s tiring too ><
    Happy reading Jessi <33

  5. Aww sorry about that decorating mishap! I usually never do anything festive besides light the tree in my living room and some lights outside but that’s it. Maybe I should buy some lights though :O Although, I’m definitely a little scared of stringing them up in case something happens!

    Also, I’m super jealous of Split Second and Champion. I hope you enjoy, though! <3
