The other day, a work meeting was cancelled and the email that went out said to consider it a gift of time. Amen. I can’t tell you how happy that made me feel. It made me realize that I am not alone in thinking that time is a valuable thing.
I am just sitting here watching the news and will be heading out soon to begin my day. My daughter is loving avocado toast these days so maybe she will share some with me. Maybe not.
Not much going on this week outside of my norm which is good. We do have a parent/player meeting for club volleyball but I know her coaches are finishing out their semester at college so I’m not sure who will be representing her team.
My son took an additional job on top of the seasonal retail job he picked up so he will be a Toy Soldier on stilts at Six Flags as well as working retail. I am not sure how the stilt thing will work. Dancing…on stilts with no experience. He leaves for Disney in January so I hope he’s careful. This additional job makes it difficult to plan our holiday traditions. I am almost positive he will be working Thanksgiving day which absolutely blows. No one should have to work on Thanksgiving day.
I’ve been a tiny bit distracted so my reading took a hit this week but I am just starting Keep Her Safe by Sophie Hannah.
I watched the first episode of Stranger Things, Season 2 and I thought it was a little slow.
American Horror Story is plugging along but it’s nearly over and I don’t feel as if there’s been much of a story.
The Walking Dead is staggering all over the place trying to keep their audience but the writing hasn’t been good this season.
For mindless TV, I watch Chrisley Knows Best. It’s scripted but Todd’s mother is hilarious and needs her own show.
I made baked chicken and rice, tacos, and there will be pizza and gluten-free corn dogs at some point. Corn dogs!! Totally not good for you but easy and no one complains. I wish they would sell corn dogs like the ones at Hot Dog on a Stick… the ones with cheese in them. Why don’t they?
My smart little Otter Pup. She got into my tinted lip balm and I was worried because it was shredded all to heck and I was so worried about the plastic she consumed. However, after some searching we found all the pieces AND she did not get one speck of that colored balm on the carpet.
She was mad because we went to IN N OUT and she did not get a treat.
Since the holidays are upon us, what is the one book you would love to get as a gift? I would love a copy of A Little Life. I’ve read it and loved it but I want my own copy. I would also like an entire set of Murakami books but I am waiting for some cool covers because the cover art always changes.
