The Sunday Salon: Back to School

Sunday Salon

How has your weekend been? It’s been really hot here. Well over 110 degrees which is WAY too hot for this gal. I get crabby. I can’t believe The Boy can run in this weather but the cross country team does not stop for anything. I’d pass out for sure!

Speaking of passing out, wish me luck because I return to my workouts tomorrow. I took a break because of the hand injury and the devil drugs the doc gave me but I stopped taking them and feel more like myself. The hand is still not right but without the drugs, I feel like I’m human again.

My kids start school this Thursday. I am so not ready for the whole homework routine. It’s their homework, but you get looped into it. Helping or nagging them to do it. One way or the other, you end up losing you mind and becoming a crazy person. I am crossing my fingers that The Girl gets the teacher she wants because the drama that will follow if she doesn’t, will not be pretty. The Boy is starting high school and his schedule looks good. Hopefully, his teachers will be good too.

Today I had to run a few errands but I am back at home and about to finish a book for a book tour. I have to tell you, I went into this book hoping for the best and it was pretty darn good. I love it when a book surprises you in a good way. I will take some time later tonight to figure out my next read. I have some books on my Kindle that need some attention.

Later, I am going to whip up a batch of queso dip and munch on tortilla chips while I prepare tacos. I have a fierce taco craving that must be satisfied. Crispy shells, seasoned meat, cheese and fresh vegetables! Oh, and the closing ceremonies are tonight too so we’ll be gathering around the TV for that.

Have a fantastic rest of the day!

The Sunday Salon: Dating, Church and Food

Sunday Salon

It’s Sunday! How have you been? I am still recovering from the fact that The Boy went on a double date last night. I told him that 16 is when he can consider dating but this was with friends from ASB (associated student body) so he argued the point. Dinner and then back to her house to watch a movie. Did I mention that she drives? Yep.

Also, The Boy has started to ask me about church. I was not raised with religion, but I believe in God and although I have tried to find a church in the past to attend, I’ve not been able to find one which seems to fit. Because The Boy asked, we are now looking into this one. I’m sure the coffee house and rock music is what pulls him in, but it does look fun. The Hub is skeptical.


As of this moment, I’ve had eggs and coffee and I am about to make a trip to the market to pick-up supplies to make this:

Garlic and Lemon  Chicken

I have made this dish before and it’s always good and makes the yummiest leftovers too. Garlic, lemon, chicken, potatoes and green beans. Yum.

Later today, I will read and maybe watch a movie. I really don’t want to do much because next week is registration at the high school (The Boy’s first year) and he’ll be working it the entire week. I don’t even know if I have to be there but the idea of him in high school is both exciting and stressful. The unknown and all that tends to weigh heavily on me.

Okay, bye for now. Enjoy your Sunday!
