The Sunday Salon: Shopping is for the Birds

Sunday Salon

It’s been a little busy around here.

We hit another concert at the park yesterday. This time, it was 80’s music by The Spazmatics! What a crazy fun time. The Hub did not like the fact that they played mash-ups of 2-3 songs at once I didn’t mind it. It was just a way for them to get the most songs in, in such a short amount of time. But the crowd was crazy. It was the last concert and I think everyone in town went, which put The Hub on edge (a little bit). Who am I kidding? I was on edge too! It was close to 100 degrees and our umbrella kept getting blown over. In the end, it was fun though and two other families ended up joining us, which lightened the mood all around.

Then today, I had to do some shopping for myself. I do not like to shop for myself. In fact, I despise it. But I am in need of everything so it could not be put off any longer. Usually, I am a GAP girl and I did buy several tops from them, but everything else was…meh. Which led me to hit store after store and I really didn’t end up with anything else.

But, when I came home we picked up Chinese take-out and now I feel normal again. What is it about dressing rooms? They are about 10 degrees hotter than the store itself. I was so crabby after the whole experience.

What am I reading?

I am reading The Asylum by John Harwood. Still! It is a little slow for me but I am plodding along and should be done within a day or so. I am almost done with After Her by Joyce Maynard. This is a quicker read, and yet I find myself taking my time with it. I think I was reading these same books last Sunday so that should tell you how much reading is going on in my house.

What am I cooking?

Nothing! Chinese take-out saved me.

What am I watching?

I am watching Huell Howser right now and then I will watch whatever is on the DVR. Probably Seinfeld. My attention span is too short for a movie and it’s already late for me.

Tomorrow is the first day of school at the university where I work so it will be crazy busy with 45K+ students trying to find their way. Wish me luck!


The Sunday Salon: Disco Lives

What a weekend. The Boy had his stuff going on, that summer class from hell and the Quinceanera that he committed himself to. So, the rest of us took off for a concert at the park. This week’s band was a called Boogie Knights. Probably the most popular act of the summer series. Disco revival groups can never go wrong. Disco lives! There were thousands of people in attendance.

The Girl had her watermelon. The only requirement for the night.

The Band, as seen from the mosh pit. The sun was going down, which only allowed me to capture a silhouette, but can you check out the hair?

Here’s a short video clip! Pardon the shaky hand. I was dancing! That’s me yelling in the background and check out the end of the clip for some butt action. Not from me!

What am I reading?

I am not making too much progress with any of my reading this week. I am still reading The Curiosity. It started off strong but it’s petering out for me. I hope it picks up.

I have to start Bait, which came to me a little late for the tour I am on. Knowing how I have been with my reading lately, I am going to have to get to it this week if I want to get it read and reviewed before my tour date. But school starts this week for my kids so who knows what will happen?

What am I cooking?

Not sure yet. I have to hit the market as once again I have no food in the house! Maybe tacos?

What am I watching?

I want to see a silly movie. Maybe Funny Farm with Chevy Chase? I love that movie.

What do you have planned for today?
