I love how Stephen King’s IT is getting so much attention now with the new movie and all but I can’t tell you how many people are not aware of the book!! Even the news anchors are like, “What is the deal with the balloon? Can someone tell us what it means?” GOODNESS. Please read the book! I do plan to see the movie but I have to see it with the right people.
Do I even need to say it? Yep. Still no AC. I am getting used to being a sweaty mess though and the threat of Irma, for so many people I know, has been distracting me. I can’t complain about temperature when so many fear for their safety right now. Perspective.
In a little while we will hit church and then later I’ll be back there to hang with the high schoolers.
Music Man rehearsals start on Monday. The Girl has been busy with volleyball and all the other stuff she is doing but I can tell she’s ready for rehearsals again. That girl is always singing and kicking her legs around.
The Boy, The Lad, Evan… he is in limbo waiting for stuff to happen. Applications for things are in, his community arts proposal presentation is coming up, school is in full swing but he did not get into one of the classes he needs so now he has a huge gap in his schedule.
Me? I am feeling a little antsy lately. I feel as if I need to be doing something different. A creative “something” is missing from my life. Or, I haven’t found my true purpose. Or, I want to ditch it all and head for the beach. Yeah, definitely that.
I’ve been reading all sorts of stuff in an attempt to catch-up. I finished and reviewed A Stranger in the House. I finished Lincoln in the Bardo and need to write the review. I am almost done with My Absolute Darling and I am about to begin Bird Box and Into the Water.
Plus, I am posting a read-along announcement on Monday for the new King book. Look for it!
I watched Episode #1 of American Horror Story: Cult and it was very good and also extremely disturbing. Clowns people!! Trump too. It’s so cringy!
I believe Fear the Walking Dead starts up again tonight. There is also a preview for the new season of The Walking Dead which I plan to at least record for later.
I really need to figure out what I am doing wrong. I don’t have a lot of time to plan meals but when I go shopping it’s always a very expensive trip and I often don’t even have enough to make three meals. I don’t mind the cooking but the shopping really makes me unhappy. I feel like I need to strip it all down to the basics. Protein, veggie, carb. It’s boring but you should see the stuff that ends up in my cart!! Aged Gouda, which I promptly forget about and then have to throw away. Or fancy bread that the kids don’t eat fast enough before it turns moldy.
The return of my fall TV shows. With everything going on in the world, there is absolutely nothing wrong with crashing on the couch while watching some good TV.
What’s your one guilty pleasure right now?
