The Da Vinci Code

I started The Da Vinci Code today. I have read five novels this summer but seeing as how I have nearly one month left to my break, I thought I would read a couple more. I am the last person in my family to read it and have heard nothing but great reviews. I have hardly 'broken the ice,' as I only had time to read during my measly little breaks. I love my job, but don't you think that for a twelve hour shift, one deserves more than an unpaid-half hour break?!? Me too. Tomorrow my mom and possibly Joleen (with her charge) are going to the beach. I am very excited because I don't have to watch anyone or worry about fading phone numbers. Tomorrow we are bringing our books and enjoying the outdoors (and of course the company of each other). I heard there was another thunderstorm headed to SoCal. Anyway want to wager?

On another note...I have been traveling no where without my camera and the one day I didn't bring it with me...Man oh, man!. I have to say that I am really enjoying this whole blog thing; taking the pictures, reflecting on my day, speaking on random whims as they enter my mind, and of course reading all those responses. Six days in a row-aren't you guys proud? No journal of mine has ever lasted this long. I know, it's kind of pathetic. On a serious note, thank you all for the positive feedback and encouragement.

Ahhh! One of my favorite books! :) I also started a new novel which I bought this weekend- The Time Traveler's Wife. I am about half way through it and it's very good. Of course, I think most books are. ;)

For a twelve hour shift I think they legally have to give you more time off. Hmmm.. it's been a long time so I can't really remember but I think it's 15 minutes for every 4 hours worked. Unfortunately I think after 15 minutes they're unpaid. But what do I know.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Hopefully the babe is feelin' okay. I'll bring along her books, although, she'll most likely just eat sand. :D

wow, i am so envious of you and Joleen with all of the reading you do. first of all i wish i had the time to sit and read and secondly the desire. i have never been much of a reader. when i try to read my mind goes off and i think about all of the things that need to be done. fortunately one of my offspring (trevor is still young yet) always has a book in his hands :) as far as your breaks? i am pretty sure that in the healthcare industry the rules are different. why? seems ridiculous huh? one would thnk that in that field you would want your employees well rested and alert. scary to think that doctors and nurses are expected to be on their toes with such little sleep. hmmmm enjoy your day at the beach, we are off to the aquarium :)
