After a very mild spring, we are having a heat wave. My house has been neglected these past few weeks because of the flurry of activity that always seems to hit me at the end of the year so staying inside to tidy-up doesn’t sound all that bad today.
Last night, the Teen and I volunteered to work A Night to Remember, a free prom honoring students with special needs. I worked food detail and the Teen was a student host to one of the honored guests. It was a blast!!
I’ve not been able to attend church these past few weeks because of the award show we attended and being out-of-town for Memorial Day so today we head back to church and I am so looking forward to it. Also looking forward to seeing my middle-school group tonight, even though Justin Cronin decided to do a book signing when I was not available to go. I’ll forgive him.
I have nothing after work this week except a girl’s night out. This will probably be the only time ever I will get to write a sentence like this one.
I am really making an effort to get through my review copies and it’s paying off. I am currently reading Zero K by Don DeLillo and it’s reminding me of a couple of books (Never Let Me Go and The New World). It’s a fast read so far and I am anxious to see where the story goes.
I’ve not seen anything good and I am very behind on all of the shows I watch (Fear the Walking Dead, Bates Motel). My TV watching time is Sunday nights and Sundays have been busy for me but I should have plenty of time now.
I am not really in a cooking mood but since the kids are home and schedules are manageable now, I feel the need to cook a meal or two. Maybe lasagna? Grilled chicken salads? I haven’t a clue. I would be happy just eating bread, good cheese and fruit but that gluten-free thing messes me up every time.
The friends I’ve made through theatre, choir and track and yes… church! I always have this super-busy schedule but every time I show up to volunteer for something, I have happy faces around me to keep me entertained. This is why I volunteer. Not only to help my kids out, or the school out, or even the church out… but to meet in real-time, have conversations and do something for someone else.
IT FEELS GOOD. I highly recommend it.
