This week is Fall Break for my kids. This used to mean a week off for all of us but now that The Boy is in middle-school, he only gets two days off. So, we aren’t going anywhere. But, I decided to take Friday off (just for me) and spent the day reading. I have a stack of library books that are due soon, so my goal is to get through at least half of them.
I finished A Reliable Wife. Wow! What a book. This is the book that I bought twice, by the way. I’m not even mad that I bought it twice anymore.
I am about 100 pages into The Night Circus. It was slow going for me in the beginning but I’m enjoying it now. I love the striped end papers!
On a side note, I pulled We The Animals off the library shelf which surprised me, because I had no plans to read it and hadn’t really given it much thought, but I read the first page and got sucked in. So…I am reading it along with the others.
So this time off of mine has been spent doing what I love…reading! I feel quite happy and content over it. I have the next few days off and then I am back to work mid-week but then off again on Friday to celebrate The Girl’s 8th birthday.
Oh, and I almost forgot, The Boy and Girl received callbacks for the roles they tried out for (Alice in Wonderland). The Boy got called back for one role and he auditioned again last week. The Girl got called back for a role too but blanked out. According to her, she stood there with her mouth hanging open and said nothing. This surprises me because she is very chatty and animated and knew those lines. But for whatever reason, she froze.ย I won’t have an update until Thursday. I didn’t want to get all stage mom over it, but she KNEW those lines. I felt really bad for her. She was really upset. Poor kid.
As for tonight, I just had a really nice dinner that I slaved over and will settle down with a nice cup of coffee, and continue with The Night Circus. Hope you all had nice weekends. It was over 90 degrees both days for us here in So. Cal. I am ready for some cooler weather. Can anyone spare some of theirs?
