This weekend was jam-packed with fun but man, was it busy.
Friday, The Girl came down with some sort of stomach bug. Might have been a migraine, still not sure. We didn’t think she’d be able to run in Saturday’s track meet but it was a home meet, which gave us a little more time in the morning to assess things and since she so badly wanted to make-up for her spill during last week’s meet, she got dressed, loaded up on fluids and off we went. She’s a tough kid.
She made it through all four events and even with her throwing up the night before, she improved on all four events. But, it was another long day and it was very warm in sun so we were all grateful to be able to go home and rest for a little while. My nose looks a little too red even with the sunscreen I put on but it felt good to get a little sun.
After a bite to eat and some lounging, we headed out to see The Teen perform in the Jazz/Pop Concert that his choir put on. It was a great show and there were lots of hilarious moments. It was a treat to just sit in the dark and be entertained.
Today, I could not get anyone to go to church with me so I went by myself. It was a great service and it was nice to take an hour to just sit and reflect. I don’t get to sit down and reflect too often without something needing to be done or someone wanting me to do something for them. The music was great and I just tuned the world out. It was just what I needed.
Of course, my trip to the market afterward negated every good feeling in my body but I digress.
What am I reading?
Finished The Museum of Extraordinary Things. It was meh. Not horrible, just meh. I have about 5% of Life After Life left and I can’t wait to be done with it! I started The Cold Song. It has started off strong. Let’s hope it sticks.
What am I cooking?
Not a thing. I bought stuff to cook throughout the week but today, we are picking up roasted chickens and fresh tortillas from the Mexican market and we’ll nibble on fresh chips and salsa for dinner. Simple and perfect. Those tortillas are to die for! Actually, I am baking a chocolate cake for later but now I am wondering if The Girl will be able to have any. Darn it.
What am I watching?
We had a free movie weekend but there wasn’t a darn thing worth watching. Tonight, The Walking Dead. Man oh man, just two episodes left and I am dying!! So much has happened. I can’t wait to see how the season wraps up.
The Girl is still not 100% so we might throw in Working Girl and make some popcorn because everyone knows that popcorn with extra salt can cure many ills, including a stomach bug.
That’s all I have. What’s going on in your world?
