I announced it on Facebook already but The Girl made the freshman volleyball team. I don’t know how she will balance it all but it’s her freshman year and she reminded me that she is trying things out. We are supporting her efforts and will reassess if something needs to be tweaked next year. Volleyball, concert choir, community theatre and high school theatre. It’s going to be a fun and busy year.
Not much going on this weekend besides the normal stuff. I am out of bread for toast so a gluten-free egg sandwich from the coffee shop is sounding pretty good. In a bit, I am going to tackle my garage. It appears to be breeding.
I’ve got some appointments scheduled. I feel as if I am always going to medical appointments. I guess with kids it’s hard to get around that.
My son’s girlfriend leaves for college this week so there will be some emotions I’m sure.
First volleyball game is this Tuesday. We are not going. First, it’s way early in the day and we are working but mostly because The Girl does not want us to attend her very first game.
I finally finished A House Among the Trees and even managed to post the review. Now I’m reading The Breakdown which seems to be very popular as so many of you have already read it. I am actually almost done with it. I love it when you can plow through a book in just a couple of sittings.
I am trying to clean up my DVR list because I only have 20% space available and all the good shows will be starting soon. That means I have been watching Roseanne, The Bob Newhart Show, and I need to get to the following movies:
- The Princess Bride (never seen it!)
- Down and Out in Beverly Hills (Oh, the 80s)
- Ruthless People (I must be on a Bette trip)
- Rope (Hitchcock)
- The Abyss (most terrifying deep sea dive ever + aliens)
- The Graduate (because it’s awesome)
- The Conjuring (because it’s almost that time of year)
- The Great Outdoors (a classic)
Uh, I have a lot to watch.
I made some pasta cheesy thing one night. I made chicken curry another night. I had Cheerios one night. I would love to collect some gluten-free casserole recipes. Casseroles sound so good lately.
Name one book you are looking forward to reading this fall. Me, you ask? King’s new one, Sleeping Beauties. Look out for the read along info soon.
