The Sunday Salon: Wrapping up 2012

Sunday Salon

I wasn’t going to post today but it’s the last Sunday Salon post of the year so I decided to write one up anyway. I’ve been off from work for over a week and I’ve literally forgotten what day it is. It’s lovely! I’ve been sleeping in and watching tons of movies. I haven’t read much but what I am reading now is really good. I may have to adjust my “best of” list because of it. We’ll see. It’s a Murakami.

What I love about this time off is that we have no plans at all. Absolutely nothing. Like today. Nothing planned but we could go for a drive…or grab a bite to eat or pop in yet another movie. Whatever we do, is fine by me.

The Boy has been going to track practice in 36 degree weather. He’s also thinking about Winter formal and what he’ll be wearing. I swear. That kid loves clothes.

The Girl has been spending time with the Otter Pup. Lots of snuggle time on the couch. I don’t know what the pup will think when we all go back to work and school. She’ll have withdrawals!

The Hub couldn’t take as much time off as I did so he’s been working some short work weeks with a day off here and there. He’s okay with it for the most part, but he hates to leave the house when we are all sleeping! That’s got to be hard.

I am trying to savor my time off because The Music Man is right around the corner and production week is hellish! Lots of rehearsals and stress. I cannot lie. Getting them back and forth for their call times and me helping backstage can be rough.


I am pushing it from my mind and going back to my book. What are you doing today? Any big plans for New Year’s Eve? We plan to order Chinese take-out. Exciting, huh?

As I update my calendar for 2013 and begin to take the Christmas decorations down, I can’t help but think about all the people I’ve chatted with this year. I’ve “met” a lot of new readers through this blog and it’s been wonderful. Talking about books with others is something that makes me incredibly happy and I have to say, all of your comments and yes…friendship have made me a happy girl. Thank you.

  1. And I love chatting with you about everything but books! Have a fabulous New Year! We are dressing up and going out for dinner…then home to watch the New Year come in!

  2. I’m going to have a rude awakening on Wednesday when it’s back to work for the first time since Dec. 15th! I didn’t get as much reading time as I had hoped, but did read The Night Circus and The Receptionist. No reviews written for either, but you can’t have everything! Looking forward to 2013, now. Happy New Year!

  3. I too have lost track of the days of the week, in fact I swore today was Saturday for a bit. It’s been great to be off without set plans as well. We will be going to an early movie (Les Miserable) and out to dinner tomorrow, we actually usually so Chinese as well, but not this year.

    Happy new Year Ti, and looking forward to reading your posts in 2013.

  4. Wow, sounds like you’ve had a great time sleeping in…I can truly say I’m jealous! Have a great new year…and we have one thing in common for celebrating…Chinese take-out!

  5. I love your idea of doing whatever you want during your time off. That’s pretty much what I’ve been doing to, much to my husband’s chagrin. He just texted me about maybe painting the living room this week….What the??? I said no, I don’t think so and moved on 😀

    Happy New Year!!!

  6. Happy New Year! Just want to take this time to thank you for all your hard work this past year. I so enjoy your posts. When you read something I am not familiar with I tend to step outside the box and listen. Thanks so much. Look forward to reading you in 2013.

  7. I love those times when I can lose track of what day it is! 🙂 You have my sympathies for the play rehearsals. We only do that once a year with summer theater, and it does get tiresome (even if it is a lot of fun in the long run).

  8. Your time off sounds absolutely wonderful! Losing track of the days is a great sign that you’re taking it easy and having fun. It’s great to spend a day watching movies, and the rest of your time off is being spent in just as wonderful ways…your relaxed happiness and enjoyment of life actually comes through in this post!
    I love that your son is contemplatimng what to wear to his formal. I enjoy when a boy likes clothes, as they always dress well and with style…be sure to let me know what he wears to his formal or, even better, post a pic!

    Love your New Years Eve plan esp. as they sound pretty similar to mine! Have a Happy one, Ti! Happy New Years to your family, too!

  9. This is my week of unplanned bliss. Well, maybe not bliss exactly . . . 🙂 I am glad you were able to enjoy your vacation so fully. I really should be taking the Christmas decorations down right now. Nah. Maybe after the New Year.

    Happy New Year, Ti!
