I wasn’t going to post today but it’s the last Sunday Salon post of the year so I decided to write one up anyway. I’ve been off from work for over a week and I’ve literally forgotten what day it is. It’s lovely! I’ve been sleeping in and watching tons of movies. I haven’t read much but what I am reading now is really good. I may have to adjust my “best of” list because of it. We’ll see. It’s a Murakami.
What I love about this time off is that we have no plans at all. Absolutely nothing. Like today. Nothing planned but we could go for a drive…or grab a bite to eat or pop in yet another movie. Whatever we do, is fine by me.
The Boy has been going to track practice in 36 degree weather. He’s also thinking about Winter formal and what he’ll be wearing. I swear. That kid loves clothes.
The Girl has been spending time with the Otter Pup. Lots of snuggle time on the couch. I don’t know what the pup will think when we all go back to work and school. She’ll have withdrawals!
The Hub couldn’t take as much time off as I did so he’s been working some short work weeks with a day off here and there. He’s okay with it for the most part, but he hates to leave the house when we are all sleeping! That’s got to be hard.
I am trying to savor my time off because The Music Man is right around the corner and production week is hellish! Lots of rehearsals and stress. I cannot lie. Getting them back and forth for their call times and me helping backstage can be rough.
I am pushing it from my mind and going back to my book. What are you doing today? Any big plans for New Year’s Eve? We plan to order Chinese take-out. Exciting, huh?
As I update my calendar for 2013 and begin to take the Christmas decorations down, I can’t help but think about all the people I’ve chatted with this year. I’ve “met” a lot of new readers through this blog and it’s been wonderful. Talking about books with others is something that makes me incredibly happy and I have to say, all of your comments and yes…friendship have made me a happy girl. Thank you.
