There is something about this time of year. Time flies. Just the other day I couldn’t believe that it was October and now we are preparing for Halloween and ready to bring in November. Well, some of us are ready. I haven’t bought any candy yet, but we are having a party for the theater kids and no planning has happened for that either.
My husband was sick this past weekend. He pretty much kept to himself but somehow I picked up what he had and now I am down for the count. Still working, but really should be home. Trying not to get The Teen sick. His all-day theater competition is this Saturday. We will all be in attendance and I am wondering if I will make it through the day, but Saturday is a ways off. I could be totally recovered by then.
Reading lots, but in spurts. All I really feel like doing is binge watching Netflix, covered in a blanket, drinking tea. Alas, it is not meant to be.
So, I will settle for the tea.
What’s new in your world?
This entire week flew by in an instant! I took Monday and Tuesday off to work on The Girl’s room. I finished all of the components late Tuesday but man it wiped me out! I just need to put the headboard up and then I will share pics.
On Wednesday, since it was The Girl’s birthday and we were nursing some wounds over the cast list for Peter Pan (take a guess) we went out for a nice dinner but man, I was dying. I ate some canned tuna for lunch and had a horrible allergic reaction! My lymph nodes are still swollen. I may need to carry around an EpiPen from here on out because the reaction hit me incredibly fast.
Needless to say, I’ve been a little bit of a mess. BUT, I’ve been reading Salem’s Lot and Neverwhere and just need to get to The Quick in order to keep all my read-along commitments on the up and up.
Speaking of Stephen King, book 3 of the Mr. Mercedes series was announced yesterday. You can read a little bit about it, here. I love the cover.
This weekend, I will be spending a good chunk of Saturday trying to find housing for my mother and sister. It’s a long story but since my father’s death, they’ve not been able to make ends meet and the cost of living in the immediate Los Angeles area is just too high. It’s been stressing me out. There are lots of complicated details that make this a very sticky situation but I am praying for a miracle.
At some point this weekend, I also have to sit down with The Teen to plan the Theatre Halloween party he is having at our house. I love a good party but it does take planning and right now he is flying by the seat of his pants.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop-in since I haven’t been around much this week. It’s still hot here!! Not in the mood to decorate for Halloween but I suppose I will have to at some point.
Have you decorated yet?
