I’ve had an excellent reading week. I made a real effort to get through some of my review copies and managed to get through three this week. Almost four. Maybe it’s because I’ve been so high strung and anxious this week. I don’t even care. I just want to continue at this pace and put a real dent in my list.
After the track meet yesterday and much of it being spent in the hot sun, it feels good to sleep in a little bit. Even just a little extra sleep makes such a difference in how I look and feel. I wish I could do it more often.
After a few cups of coffee and a bite to eat, we’ll head to church.
I should know about my new office space by Monday. What I know at the moment, is that I will be upstairs.
As for the other stuff, one doc appointment this week and I am really hoping to pick up my new glasses but finding the time to do it is tough!
The Girl auditions for middle school choir this Thursday. She is going to be singing You and I and then has to sing Happy Birthday. I sure hope she makes it. She has a husky quality to her voice so I hope the song choice serves her well. Making choir would really boost her confidence.
Rehearsal and track practice rounds out the week.
Not sure what my next read will be. Maybe Five Nights in Paris. Maybe Dead Wake. I’ve been thinking about reading The Fountainhead again or maybe Atlas Shrugged. I’ve been watching Mad Men and Atlas keeps being mentioned. The first is over 700 pages and the second is over 1200. Read-along anyone?
Mad Men! I feel like a traitor to all women for watching it but I am fascinated with the time period (60’s) and some of the stuff that goes on is pretty jarring to watch since no one lives that way today. Women smoking and drinking while pregnant, bosses sleeping with their secretaries and anyone else they can get their hands on, etc. The office politics alone will make your toes curl. I am so into it.
Bates Motel is really getting good, too. Four more episodes of crazy!
It’s warm out which makes me want to grill something. Steak with a big kale salad?
Reading. My escape this week has definitely been reading. So glad to be back into it.
