I am coming to you a little late today. I took Friday off to register The Girl for middle school. That was a long day. Yesterday, The Girl and I stripped off all of the border in her room (thanks Serena for that fabric softener tip!).
We painted her dresser, got her a nightstand and painted that too. The Girl likes to collect stuff so it wasn’t as easy to get in there to do what we needed to do. Anyway, I was sore and exhausted and just now managed to drag my butt out of bed. We will be painting her room next week but it’s coming along.
I am enjoying my first cup of coffee and thinking about fall. The Halloween stuff is already out and I don’t mind. I love fall and if I get to spend some extra time thinking about it, so be it.
In a little bit we’ll head to church. I don’t know why but I am really excited about going to church today.
School starts this Thursday for my kids. The Girl doesn’t get her schedule until the first day of school. I hate that! Will she know where to go? Will she be able to find her rooms? Plus, she has a rotating schedule so she begins with a different class each day. Why do they do that?
Work really picks up this week as we prepare for the return of students to the university. I am in denial. Summer went by way too fast and now it’s going to be very, very busy until about mid-September.
I finished Everything I Never Told You but haven’t written the review yet. I am currently reading Nantucket, by Nan Rossiter. It comes out later this month! Still reading Atlas Shrugged but will be done with it this week!
I haven’t really had the time to watch much this weekend. Somehow we landed on a Steve Martin movie yesterday, Bringing Down the House. I’ve seen it before but it was less funny this time around. I think I was just too wiped out.
I watched The Barefoot Contessa yesterday and she made this chicken dish with olives and lemon. Man, it looked good. Maybe I will make that.
Books. I may not have had a real vacation this year but through books I do feel as if I’ve gone places. Hey, sometimes you take what you can get.
What are you up to today? Cooking anything good?
