Sunday Matters: That’s a Wrap

Sunday Matters

This week was not great and I’m glad it’s over. Health stuff. Stress. Seriously, I could do without it.

Right Now:

One of the things I am giving up while I figure out this health stuff is coffee. I never drank a lot of it but it’s something I’ve always enjoyed. Tea, just doesn’t do it for me but that’s what I am having at the moment.

This Week:

It is production week for Footloose with shows Thursday through Saturday.  I will probably see the show more than once but I’m not sure yet which shows we’ll see. I like to do opening and closing if possible.

Sunday is Mother’s Day. My son got us tickets to see Falsettos so I am looking forward to that.

Reading:

I just finished The Wife Between Us and it was a wild ride.  I really enjoyed it and hope to get the review up soon. If you  know of other books like it, let me know.

I am reading Letters to the Church for a discussion  I have on the 14th and White Tears for a discussion I have on the 16th.

Watching:

I have not been watching anything on TV but I did finally get to see Endgame! Avoiding all of the spoilers was so hard. I try to see these type of movies as soon as I can but our schedules just didn’t allow for it. Since others may not have seen it yet, please do not post any spoilers in comments. 

New Things I’ve Tried:

I haven’t tried anything new in the way of products but I need something for my skin. Maybe it’s because I’ve not been well but my skin is showing signs of toxicity and congestion. I just feel polluted. I need a new face mask or juice cleanse or something. Any recommendations?

Grateful for:

These days I am just grateful to get through the day.

How are you doing? The end of the school  year is coming and with it comes all of the end-of-the-year stress. Honestly, it’s killing me and there won’t be much of a break over summer either.

Sunday Matters: So Many Shows

Sunday Matters

Bright Star opened this week and will run for two weekends. This was my son’s return to the stage after taking some time off from performing. We saw it opening night and really enjoyed it. We may try to catch it again next weekend but daughter is about to head into production week for HER show, Footloose.

Right Now:

No church today as we went this past Thursday. I really like to go on Thursday when we can. It’s less crowded and makes my Sunday a little less packed. We got to hear Bob Goff at that Thursday service. You know him from the books he’s written, Love Does, being one of them. What a personality! He is seriously larger than life. REALLY, enjoyed hearing him speak.

This Week:

My husband’s birthday is this week but with my son’s show and my daughter’s Footloose rehearsals, we don’t have time to actually go out for it…yet. He wants to see Avengers: Endgame but it’s going to be awhile before we can all go together. Someone already spoiled it for my daughter. Spoilers are everywhere. He and I will probably celebrate by going out to dinner and then do the family thing later.

Reading:

I finished Stewart O’Nan’s latest, Henry, Himself. I really enjoyed it and for those who read Emily, Alone and Wish You Were Here, you’ll be happy to know that all three books center around the same family and setting. My review should be up soon.

I am about to start The Wife Between Us. Someone is reading it for a book club on Instagram and I decided to join her.

The Wife Between Us

Watching:

Not a thing. I’ve not been feeling great so I’ve been hitting the sack early. I do feel a little better though.

New Things I’ve Tried:

Haven’t really tried anything new either. Gosh, when you don’t feel well all you can do it get through the day. That’s how this past week has been.

Grateful for:

Talented kids. I really do love everything that they do. Between the shows and the concerts we are always busy but that is the type of busy that I don’t mind. I just get to sit there in a darkened room and enjoy them.

What’s your plan this week? May is almost here and I feel like most of the year has gone by in a snap.
