Lazy Days, Books, TV, and OCD

I have to wait a couple of months to go back to my temporary job(fingers and toes crossed), and I have been trying to fill the spare time. I’ve been catching up on my reading, and playing around on the Internet.

The book The Memorykeeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards is as engrossing as everyone says it is. I’m almost finished reading the latest in the Hitchcock Sewell series by Tim Cockey. There does not seem much publicity around this series, but if you enjoy Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series or comedic mysteries, this is good to try. Sewell is a smart-mouthed undertaker who always ends up embroiled in murder mysteries with a wacky cast of characters. Most of my books come from the library. I keep a list of books and their release dates, and I can reserve online. I only buy books that I really, really want or get them as gifts.

I have also been watching TV, mainly reality shows, until the shows come back in the fall. I watch Monk since I relate to the character with the obsessive compulsive disorder. I have anxiety disorder as well as OCD. That is another blog post in itself. I look online at different freelance jobs that I can do quickly, but either the pay is too low, or the job is too long-term.  Back to the lazy, hazy crazy days of summer.
