Sunday Matters: Disappointment & Happiness

Sunday Matters

This has been a week for disappointment and happiness. Some personal events took place these past few weeks that made me question my entire purpose in life. Everyone is good. Family is good. Just something that kind of threw me off and now I am second-guessing things. I need a few days to process it,

On a happy note, I believe my son has chosen the university he will attend this fall as a junior. He was accepted to the university I work for but he has chosen to go to CSU Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He will be a Mustang. After the college visit he had, the other schools he was accepted to paled in comparison. I’m happy, that he’s happy.

Right Now:

Coffee and church and maybe some reading with all the windows open. It’s expected to be 85 degrees today.

This Week:

After all the things I had to do these past few weeks I finally feel as if I am on top of them. We just need to pay a visit to the junior college to submit my daughter’s summer school requests and we’ll be good for awhile.

My life group is on break so that gives me my Tuesday nights back for a little while. I am kind of excited about that.

On Saturday, three of us are seeing Legally Blonde at the university I work for. This same night, my daughter has prom. She’s only a sophomore but is going with some juniors and seniors in theatre. We got her dress before the wisdom teeth came out which is good because we would not have had time to do so given that prom is so darn early. I remember prom being in May, not before Easter!

Reading:

As usual I am reading more than one book at a time. On the 17th though, I have a discussion meeting for There There so I am reading it between other books. I am in this weird reading mood where I just want to read fast, drama-filled stories. Don’t think this one falls into that category so we’ll see how it goes.

There There

Watching:

There is language. A lot of bad language and adult themes but Ken Jeong’s Netflix Special is hilarious! It’s only about an hour long but I laughed the entire time. I think he is just as funny without the language but there’s plenty in there so just know that going in.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I haven’t tried anything that’s been good so I won’t share any of it here but I gave up yelling for Lent and so far that is going well.

Grateful for:

Everything is blooming right now. We’ve had so much rain this year. Everything is so green and fragrant. I love it.

Question for you: How do you handle disappointment? Does retail therapy work? Self-care? A hike? Right now, I feel the need to isolate myself which is not the best way to go.

Sunday Matters: February Is Here

Sunday Matters

February actually arrived a couple of days ago but I was occupied with:

Wizard of Oz

The show sold out which of course is fabulous. The performers worked very hard and it showed.

The next show is Li’l Abner but my daughter (wait for it), is taking a break from community theatre. However, Grease auditions will happen soon and then she wants to do Little Shop of Horrors in the summer. Her brother was Seymour once. It’s a fun show.

Right Now:

I am very excited because today is Super Bowl Sunday! I am not a huge football fan but I desperately want the Rams to win. I don’t have high school ministry tonight and our TV is all setup and ready to go. Food will be good too. I am making enchiladas and there will be some other traditional foods because The Hub was like, “What? Enchiladas? That is not what you eat on Super Bowl Sunday.”

My response. “What is wrong with you?” How can enchiladas be wrong?

This Week:

Nothing out of the ordinary this week. At some point I want to pick up some paint or stain to re-do a bookshelf I have. I need to re-do it because it’s next to the new TV stand and it looks weird.

Reading:

I could have sworn my library copy of Golden State came in but I checked all the libraries and it’s still “requested”. I couldn’t wait any longer so I started An Anonymous Girl. It’s just what the doctor ordered. Mysterious. Riveting.

Watching:

Unfortunately, I got sucked into America’s Next Top Model. I watched it ages ago when it first came out but haven’t watched it since but The Girl likes to watch when her homework is done so that means I get sucked in.

I want to see what Oscar movies are available so I can at least watch a few before the show.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I signed up for an auto-delivery service for things like hand soap, detergent, etc. My first order had a missing item. No biggie but no one, and I mean no one would respond to my inquiry on what could be done about it. They provided a phone number but no one answered. They have live chat but no one responds besides the canned auto-reply asking you to wait. They have a number for 24/7 texts and no one responded either. When I finally got someone on the phone,  I decided to cancel the whole thing. I have no idea if I will get the missing item but the entire process bothered me and it was supposed to save me time.

Why people? Why?

Grateful for:

I am grateful for this full day off to spend time with my family.

Will you be watching the game today? If not? What will you be doing? It’s a very good day to go to the movies.
