Sunday Matters: One Week Down

Sunday Matters

Last week I mentioned two challenging weeks so I am happy to report that one of those weeks is now behind us. One more week of careful scheduling and we will be good until June 10 (production week for Oliver).

Right Now:

We have a morning volleyball tournament today. It throws me off when one lands on a Sunday. Later in the afternoon is the cast party for Oklahoma but whether or not my daughter goes will depend on when we get back from the tournament.

This Week:

We have choir concerts. rehearsals, volleyball tryouts, etc.


I finished A Gentleman in Moscow and will get the review up soon. In short, it’s a story with characters who will stay with me for a very long time.

I also finished The Flight Attendant which I think I may have enjoyed a little more than most of you did. Review coming soon.


Fear the Walking Dead lost a major character last weekend. It was kind of a shocker, really. I’m really curious where the story will go from here.


As most of you predicted, I am now officially over yogurt bowls. Blech. I have been craving fish. Salmon and sushi particularly. Did I mention how my family hates fish?

The weather suddenly got warm again. The other day was 50 degrees and now we are expecting 90 degree temps but for some reason I am craving a good, hearty stew.

Grateful for:

This past Wednesday I experienced a food reaction during a work event and did not have my medication on hand. My throat closed up a little and I was left with a horrible sore throat. By Thursday it felt like full-fledged strep (weird) but today I am fine. Thankful that whatever it was, reaction or illness, it passed me by.

What is new with you? What book are you dying to read this summer? The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay sounds pretty darn good.

  1. Our weather’s been the same way. We woke up to 40 degrees last Monday and now we need to cut the air conditioner on. I suggested stew for dinner tonight and Carl thought I was crazy.

    A food reaction is scary! I’m glad you’re okay now.

  2. OMG…that Cabin book sounds amazing! How did I not know about it? Every single time I repeat something or forget something I attribute it to chemo brain. Sigh! I am not craving salad…that’s for sure…no matter how good that detox salad was…I am not good at eating something for days in a row.

  3. You are always so busy! And, you’ve got to carry your medicine with you. No more scares like that allowed. My dad highly recommended A Gentleman in Moscow and now you as well. I’ve got to get it on my summer reading list.

  4. Glad your food reaction is over, yikes! Good luck for the Girl at the volleyball tourney. It sounds hot there. 90s already?! You have had some good reads lately. Enjoy your week.

  5. That food thing is beyond scary. Please promise me you will always have your medication with you from now on!!

    One week down, one week to go. You can do it!!

  6. Oh me, scary, you have to keep medicine on you. Glad you’re ok now. Our weather is crazy, cold (for May in Florida) and warm during the day. I doubt I ever get tired of yogurt bowls, I love them so much!

  7. During these two weeks, are you wondering how you used to manage all of the doings for two kids?!

    1. I think the age difference saved me. Them being 5 years apart put them in different stages of prep. I don’t know if it would have been easier to have them closer together. I am thinking maybe it is IF I was younger. Hahaha.

  8. A Gentleman in Moscow was my favorite book of 2016. It was one of those books I didn’t want to end.

    I guess because it’s summer I’m excited for Lauren Wiesberger’s new novel When Life Gives You Lululemons. I’m hoping it will be on par with The Devil Wears Prada and will keep me laughing.

  9. I hope the book club discussion went well. I hate allergic reactions. I’m currently running around with an expired Epipen for my peanut allergy, which is not good.
