The Sunday Salon: March 22, 2009

When I woke up this morning, it was raining quite a bit. I tend to get a lot done when it is raining, but now just an hour later, the clouds are gone, the rain is gone and it is sunny out. My family gets stir crazy when the weather is so nice out. I still have a lot to do though so I must get to it.

My son got a callback today for The Wizard of Oz. He was called back for Toto. Yep, a kid is playing Toto and Toto even gets to fly. Pretty cool, huh? He’ll be at auditions for three hours today so I will either drop him off and then go to Starbucks to catch-up on stuff or drop him off and then come home and try to do stuff here. I’m liking the Starbucks idea.

This week I only reviewed one book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw. You can read the review here. I really enjoyed the book and my son really likes the series. It’s one of the few series he actually looks forward to so I am all for that.

I’m really re-thinking my reading list. I have a lot of large books, 700+ pages lined up and when I read large books like that, they tend to require all of my attention so I can’t read other books along with them. This has slowed me down quite a bit and I find myself falling behind. However, I have 100 pages of Drood left which I am going to finish today. After that, I have an immediate reading list that I need to get through and then I will be all caught up. I am going to push the larger books to the summer when things are a bit more laid back. We’ll see how that works when the time comes.

As for tonight, I have some 80’s movies all lined up. I am in an 80’s mood and plopping down to watch some mindless TV seems very appealing to me right now. I am thinking Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Secret of My Success. Hoping the Hub will cook something on the grill too.

Of course, while I am watching these movies I will be reviewing summer day camps as I have not enrolled the kids in a program yet and if I don’t soon, they won’t have anyplace to go!

What’s going on in your world today?

  3. I wish it had been raining out my way, but no such luck. We did have the rain clouds overhead for a good part of the morning though. That’s great about your son being called back! I hope you gets the part. I love The Secret of My Success. I had such a crush on Michael J. Fox when I was younger. 🙂 I hope you enjoy your movie night.My husband took me out for lunch this afternoon and we’re spending quiet evening at home. We’ll probably watch a movie tonight too, although I’m not sure which one. I think we are all caught up with our TV shows.Have a great week!
