Friday Five-What is there to Smile About?

Jan posted this Friday Five "With the end of RevGalBlogPals' third annual Big Event, I am wondering who went and what it was like. There must be a lot of smiling from the Big Event! Hopefully, the rest of us are not frowning either.

So let us know how your past week was for you."

Write five different aspects of the week
OR answer the following questions:

1. When were you smiling lately?
I'm smiling mostly when I get home from the job that has become deadening lately...

2. What happened unexpectedly to you this past week?
Nothing. I had two-or was it three? trainings 9 meetings (including today-and I may be forgetting some) and a desk filled with work that should have been done.

3. How was a catastrophe averted (or not)?
I found the files!

4. What was the most delicious thing you ate?
Not lately. Lots of cafeteria food. I call it the Ptomaine cafeteria.

5. Did you see any good movies or read any books or articles?
Actually I read Jeffrey Deavers latest Katherine Dance book (on the subway back and forth to work) I think the name was Roadside Crosses. Highly recommended. Woman lead and info about grief.and trauma in a mystery.

Sorry for the down FF, but my life is a little overwhelming these days. Work, with the NY budget cut, has become unbearable and the little beach place, such a hassle that I am completely stressed~

Thanks for the book recommendation. I've got The Sleeping Doll on my wish list now--always need more mysteries to read at bedtime.

Sorry your job is going so crappy. Maybe you should take your lunch--I've long disliked cafeteria food too. And the atmosphere is not conducive for an introvert to recharge. I need outside or quiet. Do you too?

You don't have to smile if you don't feel like it. :-( Sometimes life is like that. Hope things perk up soon!

Oh nooooo....the beach place really will be a place of's just, well difficult to do remodeling - expecially on top of that work load you have. Even though I am unemployed and have no real prospects in the, any work sounds better to me than none. sigh...

I hope the weekend is relaxing and refreshing for you.
