This. Past. Week. Well, it went smoothly. No big hiccups to speak of. We took it one day at a time and got through all of the events (choir concert, banquet, The Teen’s big audition, etc.) There was one snafu when The Girl’s field trip bus didn’t return on time and we missed church but what can you do? Traffic was horrible. I’d rather them take their time than rush back.
Hitting an early service at church today because our normal service conflicts with The Girl’s team party. That is why we tried to hit church on Thursday. So hard to get up early on the weekend. It will just be The Girl and I. The Hub will stay behind to make sure The Teen gets up and dressed and out the door for day 2 at the theater.
Monday is the big day. The Jerry Herman Awards are at 7pm. The Teen did well at his audition. We find out the results AT THE SHOW! It’s nerve-wracking! It will be a late night. I figure we will be done at 10 pm and then we still have to drive home so yeah, it will be a long night but it’s so exciting!
I can’t really think of much else going on this week. A good thing.
I’ve got book club this week. Still reading All The Light We Cannot See. I need to get it read before Thursday!
The Misery read along (#MiseryRAL) starts June 1st. It promises to be a hoot. I’ll be reading and tweeting about it in between my other reads. The new King book comes out this week too. How did I forget about it?
Also reading A Little Life. About 50% in. This book is impossible to read quickly. I am seriously highlighting every other page, the writing is so lovely. I am taking my time with it and loving every moment I have with it.
I am halfway through Mad Men, Season 5. Still loving this show. We watched Return of the Jedi recently. Had to get The Girl up to speed before the new movie comes out later this year. I picked up Million Dollar Arm from Netflix but haven’t gotten to it yet.
I don’t think I’ve cooked once this week! There wasn’t time to cook but even if I had the time, I don’t think I would have. I don’t have a taste for anything and still feel blah. This is telling me I need to go on some sort of cleanse or clean diet but where is my motivation these days? If it takes effort, then I immediately just want to go to bed. Not like me at all.
Some of the stuff you’ve been cooking sounds tasty though. Too bad a personal chef is not a possibility.
Oh, all sorts of things. My pup. The Hub has been sick and so he’s been sleeping in another room. The Otter Pup HAS to sleep exactly halfway between the two of us when he does this so she camps out on the stairs. Too funny! She is such a sweet pup!
I got a raise at work. This was unexpected but great! A very nice surprise. Maybe I will treat myself to a new Kindle so that PATTY doesn’t make fun of my old one anymore. I know, I know, just kidding and all that. I have a hard time buying new stuff when the old stuff works perfectly fine.
How’ve you all been? It got really hot here this weekend. The team party is a pool party so they picked a good day for it. What are you up to?
