Sunday Matters: A Little Less Wisdom

Sunday Matters

I spent most of the weekend at a theatre festival. It was fun and it’s always great to spend time with my daughter’s friends. Today, we have a baby shower to attend. Haven’t been to one of those in a long time.

Right Now:

After two very busy days, I am dragging my body around from point A, to point B. My seat on the struggle bus is still occupied.

This Week:

This week is really no better than the last one as  far as availability goes. On Friday, my daughter is getting her wisdom teeth out (all four) so my day will be spent with her. After that, she heads into spring break, so she can take the time she needs to heal and not have to do anything. It’s good timing because it’s in-between shows and auditions.

Reading:

Still reading this but I should be done with it soon. It did pick up.

The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted

Watching:

Finally watched Crazy Rich Asians and it was very good and enjoyable to watch.

The Walking Dead has been really good lately! This new writer has injected some life back into the show. Thank you!

I watched an episode of The Toe Bro. I know your opinion of me has dropped significantly but there is hope. I don’t think I can watch it long-term. Just seems like a lot of ingrown nails being removed. Seen that once? No need to see it again.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I tried e.l.f.’s Gentle Peeling Exfoliant from Target the other day. The affordable price ($10) made me question how good it could be but it was making the rounds on Instagram so I tried it. It’s weird and  rather dry for a facial cleanser but amazingly, it leaves you with very happy skin. It says to use it a couple of times a week but I find myself wanting to use it more often.

Grateful for:

I am grateful for a good job and being able to take some time off when I need to.

What are you craving right now?

I am craving seafood. I am actually thinking of doing lobster tails for Easter dinner instead of ham. What about you?

Sunday Matters: Getting Busy Again

Sunday Matters

We are heading into busy again. Are you surprised? Lots of stuff coming up although we did manage to get through those choir concerts last week just fine. I think we are all getting better at handling production weeks around here.

Right Now:

We didn’t go to church on Thursday because I went to urgent care to get a TB test so I can be a theatre volunteer. This also involves buckets of paperwork, training, fingerprints, background check and $85 from me. I’ve been volunteering for theatre for YEARS but new admins mean that policies are now enforced. For a working parent, this is rough. Go here to drop this off. Go there. Go to the district to turn it all in.

All this to say that since we could not go to church on Thursday, we are going this morning.

This Week:

Volunteering at Outreach on Monday. Life group on Tuesday. Wednesday is a theatre showcase. Thursday is Back to School night and then this weekend is a theatre festival. Oh, and I work every day, of course.

Reading:

I started this:

The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted

It’s slow-going so far.

Watching:

My son brought up the movie Our Idiot Brother on Netflix and we all kind of fell into it. I expected it to be really dumb but it’s not. It’s funny and sweet and surprisingly entertaining. It’s old. From 2011 but I had missed it when it first came out. It stars Paul Rudd but also has Zooey Deschanel and Elizabeth Banks.

New Things I’ve Tried:

At the conference I attended for work, my breakfast options were not fabulous so I opted for bars for a quick fix. I had not tried this brand before but it was very good and very filling. I was not hungry for lunch after eating one and no sugar dip afterward. They come in lots of flavors. I tried the Almond Bliss one below and it was delicious.

Grateful for:

Books in the mail. This does not require explanation but just the sight of a package on my door step makes me so happy after a rough day.
