Guys, I am feeling rather sad about not being approved for a galley of Murakami’s newest book, Killing Commendatore, due to hit shelves this October. I’ve been waiting so long for the translation and you all know how much I love Murakami. I am dying. I even tried to appeal it, only to be declined again. No reason. Just declined.
What’s funny is that I always buy the book anyway. Sometimes more than one copy. One to read, one to keep untouched. But I seriously wanted to sink my teeth into that 700+ page galley. I am so sad. And yes, I was selected as a Murakami ambassador once but nope… didn’t help me at all.
Look. At. It.
Moving on, because I kind of have to even though I am bitter inside. Today is my last day off from student ministry so we have church this morning and then nothing.
School starts for The Girl on Thursday. She has two volleyball games this week and one of them is before school even starts. We also have a cast party for Oliver, which we probably cannot attend due to her game. There is also a choir thing that she won’t be able to attend. In the middle of all of this is an orthodontist appointment. Sounds like a lot but not really since we can’t do most of it.
While the kids saw the musical Waitress in Hollywood yesterday, the Hub and I saw Mission Impossible: Fallout. I enjoyed it. It was a good action movie.
I should know this but I think Fear the Walking Dead starts up again tonight. If so, I plan to watch it.
This past week I made some Korean Turkey Bowls. I was supposed to use beef but I went with turkey and it was easy and super good. I subbed gluten-free soy sauce but it was easy to adapt and the leftovers were even better. We also had pizza one night, pork chops on another. Tonight I am craving take-out. Maybe Thai?
The Girl handled registration by herself and I didn’t have to brave the hot weather to do it with her. She even got her schedule straightened out. She is now a 10th grader!
What are you up to today? Doing anything fun? Cooking anything good?
