Welcome to the 55th Edition of my Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Last week was GREAT! It was like I’ve been holding my breath for last few weeks just waiting for this one fantastic week.
First, Monday night I got a text message that a little chihuahua needed a home and fast. I had actually posted about him before because about a month ago he needed a home. And I’d found one, but only after someone else had already claimed him. Well, they had kids and those kids did not know how to behave with a dog that’s been through so much. See Bruizer (that’s his name) was one of the dogs in the horrible fire at the end of June in Dallas with 70 dogs. If you hadn’t heard about it, here’s the news story. Bruizer was one of the dogs saved, but the home that took him had a Pitbull. Now I’m one of the first people to say Pitbull’s get a bad wrap – but in this case, the chihuahua and pitbull were not a match made in heaven. For his own safety, the owners needed to find Bruiser a new home and then he ended up with the family with the kids, who didn’t know how to treat him too well. That brings us around to Monday night. I recontacted the person I had found who said she’d take him before and she said, yes, she’d still take him. So Tuesday morning I went and picked Bruizer up and then drove an hour to meet her (she drove an hour too) and hand him over. I’ve had updates and Bruizer is doing really well in his new home and making friends with his new chihuahua sibling 🙂
While I was out an about transporting Bruizer I got a phone call from a blocked number. Now normally, I don’t like to answer those calls. But this time, I thought maybe it was from one of the people I was communicating with to get Bruizer. So I answered and it was a call for a job!!! Finally! I could have done a happy dance, except that I was driving, and thus unable to write down details. So I quickly memorized the info, pulled over and programmed it into my phone. So I have an interview (for a job I really really want) this upcoming Thursday 8/28 at 11am! Yay!
As if my week wasn’t going good enough, I got home later that day and checked my email, where I found out that I’m a Klover!! Yay!! I’m so excited, you have no idea 🙂 This is the first time I’ve gotten something cool like this, so I’m way excited 🙂 I can’t decide which badge I like better, though. Which one do you like best?
And then, on Wednesday, my brother calls me because he had a job interview and got a second interview and hired on the spot! This was his first job interview ever (so first job ever) and I’m really excited for him. He’s been looking for something all summer. We went out to celebrate and had a really yummy dinner.
Sorry to ramble, but I just had to share how great my week was! Cross your fingers for me that my job interview goes well, please. Hopefully I’ll have good news next week too 🙂

New Additions to My Shelf
I swear, as of Saturday morning I only had picked up three books. Between the Night Huntress sale and reading blog posts, Saturday made up for an entire week of careful avoidance of the 1-click button!
