It goes without saying that time is flying. I’m not sure where it began to speed up but the school year is nearly over. After a year on pause, here we go. Are you ready? The one thing that this pandemic has done is carve out for me what is NOT important in my life. I’ve always wanted to live simply. I tend to not need much. I like it that way. I think that mindset bothers my kids though.
My Sundays are pretty set. Church, youth group, a walk with the Hub and pup and then maybe some takeout later or dinner out.
It’s time for cap and gown pick-up for my high school senior. She will drive down to get that and some other grad items on Monday.
Thursday, The Hub gets shot #2 (Moderna).
I have a couple of items for work but doable. No biggies.
I will be spending some time this week trying to find another hair stylist. After not hearing from her for ages, and my hair being totally out of control, I contacted her and she is out of business. I am kind of hurt that she didn’t tell me. I have been going to her for about 12 years now. I knew all about her kids and she knew about mine. I know her situation cannot be fully known by me but man, it made me sad.
Because of that wave of sadness that hit me, I gave up on Good Neighbors. Those opening pages took a lot of work to get through and I was not feeling it. Maybe I will pick it up again some other time because it’s pretty well-reviewed.
Instead, I picked up Broken by Jenny Lawson. I received a review copy and although I am not a huge fan of funny books or memoir type books, I opened it up to the first story and it immediately pulled me out of my pathetic (I lost my hair dresser) funk.
I thought we had watched Marcella on Netflix but then I realized we had not so we have been watching season one and it’s very good. A serial killer returns, it’s British, it’s good.
Will you all be watching the Oscars tonight? I’ve not seen any of the movies but it is usually a fun event to watch. I’ll give it a go and if it doesn’t do it for me I will watch Fear the Walking Dead which I still hope redeems itself.
- Service opportunities. More on that later.
- So grateful that the pup is not allergic to bees. She stepped on a bee again on one of her walks and instantly thought I did something to her which is so weird. She has since forgiven me.
- Antibacterial anything. Something bit my hand after some yard work. It got infected. I am self-treating it but it’s turning a corner. Thankfully.
What are you doing today? What do you have going on this week?
