The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.

I cannot believe I survived this past week. Monday morning the man follows me out to my car to kiss me and see me off, and it wouldn’t start. Remember, he lives an hour and a half away from me and my workplace. He called AAA for a wrecker, and I had it taken to the closest dealership thinking that would be easiest. In some ways it was, because everything was still under warranty, so all I was out was about $70 for a rental and gas. I waited over an hour for my rental and saw some very interesting “business practices” while I waited. I’m pretty sure it’s policy that if you get a rental, it should be kept in better condition and nicer than your own vehicle. Just sayin’. Because of that I missed the entire first half of my training on Monday. I arrived in my district around lunchtime.
I was not very interested or pleased with our Mental Health First Aid training on Tuesday. I read the entire book they gave us before lunch. I have my own thoughts on my takeaway, and if we do what I believe the unsaid expectation is, there will be lawsuits left and right.
Wednesday and Thursdays trainings were fabulous. I also discovered the best place to work in the district is the technology department. They have an entire lab with brand new computers with extra-large monitors. And it’s so quiet. I want to go there to work on staff development days.
Baby has been moody this week because the man has been gone everyday. This went into effect the day following the Dallas police shootings. All Baby knows is he leaves every night and when he is home he’s sleeping. She doesn’t like it. Friday night he leaned over the couch and was whispering to her as he got ready. She was in a snit because he was leaving, so she sat up, gave him and “eat shit and die” look, and ran off to the beanbag. And then proceeded to give him the eyes. She is so sensitive.
What would you like to see in place of the “Around Town in the Spotlight” section? I want to add something else to my Sunday Posts, but I’m not sure what. Leave me a comment about something fun or interesting you’d like to see!

I did select a few new free ebooks from Amazon. I had a specific criteria when reading the summaries. I ended up passing on most that I clicked on to view, so that’s a good thing! I also picked up a few earlier this week, too.
