Work. Meh. I have a few more days to ponder it but it’s never easy to return after a long break. I feel like I am all hungover. My sleep patterns are all over the place and my body is off, but in a good way.
I’ve eaten stuff I don’t normally eat, visited with family that I don’t normally see and have watched movies with abandon. It’s been wonderful. As I look at the calendar, I realize that I have less than a week to read my book club book, and a little more than that to read the tour book I signed up for.
That eye/headache mess. Phffft.
I am on my stomach, in bed, typing this out, waiting for the house to heat up before I venture downstairs for coffee. As soon as it gets warm enough, I’ll get ready for church. The Girl does not want to go which means it will be a perfectly pleasant morning dragging a sulking tween around.
I return to work on Wednesday. I purposely took the extra days to not have to deal with MONDAY. But rehearsals start-up again this week so it will almost be like a regular week. I need all of your good thoughts for Wednesday because when you have this much time off, you really start to think that big changes are needed. You know?
I am reading It Was Me All Along, written by a blogger I follow. I didn’t have an elaborate way of picking my first books this year. It had to do with what I was behind on because of this headache and all the stuff that came with it. It’s very heartfelt. I am enjoying it. It’s about her obsession with food. Which is just perfect to read at the beginning of the year after all of the excesses enjoyed over the holidays.
I watched The Great Gatsby and it really was a visual masterpiece. I snuck August: Osage County in while purging my shelves. It was full of tension, that one. Which made it great to watch while chucking books into a box. Thwack! Thwack! I really liked American Hustle. Enough to want to see it again. I just got The Hundred-Foot Journey from Netflix so I hope to watch that today.
Nothing. Yet. I did make spaghetti and meatballs the other night, along with a really good pot-roast but the cupboards are bare again. I will hit the market on my way home from church. Fun! With The Girl in tow, and all. The Hub won’t be too thrilled either. We all hate grocery shopping.
A few extra days with my kids.
Happy Thought For the Week:
Friday. I am already looking forward to it.
