I am ready for this crazy week to end. I had something going on EVERY night this week. Concerts, school performances, audition prep for Grease. I am so tired!
Yes, it is all coming to a close soon but with summer comes additional stuff like the THREE summer school classes that The Teen is taking to make sure he is on track. When you have two periods of choir and two periods of drama, you end up going to summer school to make sure you are on track for graduation. Who knows about student government at this point? It’s a wild card. When I was in high school you couldn’t take any of this stuff until you had the requirements met. Ultimately, I can veto all of it but now he believes he wants to go to a performing arts school which justifies the heavy art load. Sort of.
All I want to do this weekend is sit down with a book and maybe throw something on the grill. This book has my interest right now. I am a good 100 pages in and hooked so far:
The theater department had a seafood fundraiser and I bought a bag of these gigantic scallops and a bag of jumbo shrimp. Weird idea for a fundraiser, huh? I sure hope they weren’t sitting in a van down by the river in 100 degree heat before arriving at my doorstep. Anyway, the shrimp I can always use but I don’t have any tried and true recipes for the scallops.
After looking online, I found this recipe, Scallops and Corn Chowder from Real Simple. Doesn’t it look good? It’s does not involve the grill but that’s okay. Sitting outside with a tall glass of something and a bowl of this? Bliss.
I’ve also been wondering, in my more lucid moments, where my sense of style went. It’s vanished. I would like to spiff up my style in some way. I am very practical when it comes to clothes and I hate spending money on clothes when I can spend it on other things, but I don’t think I can ignore the fact that my style is in the $h^t#@r. I like comfortable but the last time I checked, looking like a hobo wasn’t a thing.
Anyway, I must go and look productive. I hope you have a nice, relaxing weekend.
