The kids returned to school last week and we all survived. I was very nervous about the first day of junior high but according to The Girl it was a piece of cake. She is looking forward to her choir activities and Peter Pan which starts rehearsing in September.
Senior year for The Teen is going to be a fun one. He will be directing a show this year which he has not done before and then hopefully get a part in the musical come spring. Between choir and theater he will be busy.
Since I am late with this post, I’ve already been to church, had a smoothie and now I am tidying up around the house before I head back to church for the middle school group.
Work will be busy but I have several appointments scheduled this week as well so I will be in and out of work all week long. So be it. I am not going to stress over it.
I am going to try to paint at least one wall in The Girl’s room this week. I never got to it this past Saturday because we did end up at the concert at the park and it was sooooo hot! It is 108 right now and only 2pm.
I finished Nantucket by Nan Rossiter. The review will be written up soon. I also finished Atlas Shrugged!! I feel so accomplished. Right now I am reading Days of Awe by Lauren Fox. Very compelling so far.
Nothing. Not a darn thing. Well, sometimes a show called Fixer Upper. I am gearing up for Fear the Walking Dead though, which if I am not mistaken, starts next weekend.
We are grilling steaks tonight! HUGE steaks and will have them with fresh corn, baked potatoes and garlic toast for the rest of the family.
My Bible app. I’m not going to get all religious on you but I’ve been wanting to read the Bible more and have not been all that successful so I signed up for some reading plans through my Bible app. Some of the plans are short, like 7 days…some are even shorter. Anyway, I browse plans, sign-up and then it sends me reminders to read the assigned reading.
It’s funny, because I set my reminders for certain times of the day but the app seems to send them whenever it wants and nearly every time I get one I am stressing over something or angry about something so it’s a good reminder to chill out and not get all wrapped-up in stuff I can’t control.
That’s it from me. What are you up to? Reading anything wonderful that I need to know about?
