Sunday Matters: A Place for Everything

Sunday Matters

Good morning! We all made it through the week! I know some of you had busy weeks,  myself included. This week is no different but I will, WILL carve out some time to put things in their place this week. I feel a little lost when things are all over the place. Do you get that way? I am fairly organized but I still come home at the end of the week to find mini piles of crud everywhere. My kids come home, and drop their stuff and that’s where it sits until they pick it up again. I feel like it sucks my life force dry. I gotta get a handle on that.

Yesterday, the middle school group at church had its Back to School Bash. It was an 80s theme and it was so fun! And, you won’t believe it but I spotted Atlas Shrugged! Yes! A parent was reading it and we had a moment to discuss the book. I love when that happens. Atlas Shrugged, 80’s music and kids having fun. It was a very special day. Oh, and there was a DeLorean! It was street legal and everything! So cool.


Right Now:

Enjoying my second cup of coffee. I’ve given up coffee during the week so the weekend coffee fix is turning out to be a real treat. At the moment, I am trying to get the kids moving so we can go to church. They are being slugs today.

This Week:

It’s kind of an exciting week. Peter Pan rehearsals start for The Girl. This time she is trying out for a Lost Boy (Curly) and one of Tiger Lily’s dancing friends.  We won’t know what she gets until October. Long wait.


Just started Finders Keepers by Stephen King. It’s really good so far. This cover is so gruesome. I kind of wish his covers wouldn’t be so mainstream. I feel like more people would read his books if they didn’t see all this gore on cover.

Finders Keepers


Tonight, I will be watching Fear the Walking Dead. I believe it’s back from its break last week. At least, I hope so.


These days I never know what to make. I feel like a big pot of chili but it’s so warm out. Not quite chili weather.

Grateful for:

I am grateful for the  little signs I’ve gotten lately that I am doing the right thing.

What are you up to this week?

Brain Dump Friday


Nope. Not a new feature. Just me, rambling on about random things. You guys are like, “So? What’s new?”

I’ve been busy at work and it’s the kind of work that drains my brain. Normally, I have a little bit of time between things to recharge, but that hasn’t been the case this week, which has resulted in me looking rather confused and lost. I mean, I have to add lipstick just to look alive. Yep, one of those weeks.

It’s Friday though and I am so darn happy to finally see it! In an attempt to clear the air, I am going to share what’s been on my mind lately. Ready?

  • The Teen is looking at colleges. They are looking at him.
  • Peter Pan auditions/rehearsals start next week.
  • Reviews. I just gotta write them. So behind.
  • This heat and this crazy weather. Think End of Days.
  • Healthy eating  is not hard. Healthy thinking? Hard.
  • My house needs some attention.
  • Finished Villa America. That ending. Hmmm.
  • Why did L ‘Oréal discontinue Smooth & Shine Creme? My hair is a disaster without it.
  • I feel like reading a classic, but which one?

Okay. I feel a little better now. What about you? How are you doing? What plans do you have for the weekend? I have a Back to School kick-off to attend for the middle schoolers at church. It’s an 80s party! I am so there.
