I know that’s not how you spell haulin’ but I thought it looked funny so that’s what I put. As many of you know, this is extreme crazy season at the bookstore. For the past week and a half I’ve been carting boxes of books everywhere. We’ve received over 500 boxes of books already and more on the way. The pressure is on to get all the books checked in and shelved before Monday (July 25th). It’s been a difficult task with little to no help at times. We’ve managed to somewhat keep up but still manage to have boxes to check in at the end of the day. It’s very frustrating to work all day to clear the floor just so it can be filled up with boxes from the next delivery. I definitely am feeling the muscles working and hopefully I will be able to see the results too. I try to be careful because I tend to throw my back out a lot from lifting and tossing the heavy boxes. I feel sore now but so far so good (knock on wood). I saw the former textbook manager today that used to be there when I first arrived at GWU. She told me that once I started thinking about a family I needed to get out of there and find something else. She told me that she would be watching me and that I better listen to her.

Enough blabber about work, just wanted to let you know why I’ve been so distant. By the time I get home I am zonked. This weekend Justin’s cousin Jessica is getting married. I’m so excited. I am going to be helping with the serving at the reception. I just know she is going to be so beautiful.

Take care everyone!
