I missed last week’s Sunday post because we celebrated my son’s 19th birthday and I was too tired to write one. A day at a theme park is super fun but my legs felt broken afterward. I think we all had a good time though.
This Monday we are in production week for Grease with two shows on Friday and two on Saturday. We are looking forward to seeing it. The Girl has a duet. She is VERY excited about it.
After the show, we get a little bit of a breather and then just like that, school starts on August 10th. We’ve done very little back-to-school shopping so that will have to be worked in somewhere.
Lots of coffee drinking going on at the moment. Also, trying to figure out which Passion Planner I will buy for 2018. They go on sale August 1 and have loads of colors to choose from this time. I am torn between the blue, the rose gold and the harvest yellow.
My focus besides the show will be cleaning out closets and the garage. Anytime my kids no longer want something, it ends up in the garage. The garage has officially reached disaster status.
Oh, and after 20 years of automatic renewals, I have to go to the DMV to renew my driver’s license. My picture is so old, it looks nothing like me and probably hasn’t for at least 15 years so I suppose it would be good to get a new one.
I started A House Among the Trees by Julia Glass and it’s really slow. If you’ve read it, does it pick up? I am 10% in. Because it’s on the slow side, I am starting Into the Water by Paula Hawkins as well.
I’m not watching much. I get too distracted and start cleaning out drawers. It’s what I do when inevitably someone changes the channel to the news. The headlines are plenty. I don’t need more of it at home.
I am not hungry for anything. No cravings. Nothing sounds good. This does not bode well in the cooking department. I think The Girl has had cereal for dinner three times this week.
Remember my crazy allergic reaction that gave me swollen lips for two weeks straight? Well, I still cannot wear lipstick of any kind but I can now wear a tinted balm from Burt’s Bees. The scar that resulted from my lips splitting is almost gone. So, I am grateful for that colored balm even though I still look like a corpse because the color is so light.
I don’t know what that will look like on my license photo. Probably not good.
