This week hasn’t been fabulous. In fact, much of it was the perfect storm of things going wrong. Sometimes that happens.
On a happy note, today is my daughter’s 15th birthday. We don’t even know what we are doing yet. It’s up to her and if needed I will miss volunteering tonight depending on what she decides.
Happy Birthday! We love you! She’s eager to get her permit to drive but you have to be 15 1/2 for that. Just a little while longer.
I am decompressing. Just kind of sitting here but we’ll decide what the heck we are doing and then do it.
Many have asked but no, The Girl did not get the role of Witch in Oz. BUT, she got the part of Aunt Em. Everything for a reason, right?
No special appointments this week just the normal stuff. The place where we do Homeless Outreach closed its doors so we are moving to a facility that was offered as an alternative. It’s smaller and we have to keep everything in a mobile unit and bring it in and out each night so Mondays in November will be a little different. I pray that we can still serve these folks successfully in this new setup.
Still reading Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver. It’s veered into a slightly different direction than I anticipated so I will wait until I turn that last page to form an opinion.
Oh! And of course, Murakami’s new one comes out on Tuesday. I did not pre-order it this time because I feared it would not come , like it did that one time. I shall walk in and buy it. I hope my local store has it.
The Fear the Walking Dead finale was so yawn-inducing. I can barely muster the energy required to discuss it. So, I won’t.
Still watching American Horror Story although it comes on so late here I can’t watch it until the day after. Because of that I have to be careful of what I see on social media. Spoilers are all over the place.
I haven’t seen any good movies but I recorded Hocus Pocus which I have yet to see in its entirety.
New Things I’ve Tried:
This stuff is like crack. Gluten-free too. Another Trader Joe’s find. A small piece keeps the doctor away. No… seriously.
Tele-doc appointments. My daughter has been begging to go to the dermatologist but she has NO time for the appointment so I sent some pics to her doctor and voila! Prescriptions ready for pick-up. Hoping they help. Working out every day for hours on end in a sweat box of a gym does not help the skin.
Has anyone in your neighborhood decorated for Halloween yet? We have three houses that put a few things up but it’s been so darn hot. No one wants to put Halloween stuff up when it’s so hot out.
