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.

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: Spring Has Sprung

Sunday Matters

I’ve been trying to catch-up on sleep ever since last week’s theatre festival. It was fun but man, I am exhausted. That, coupled with a few nights of insomnia really did me in.

My daughter got her wisdom teeth out on Friday so although the day was spent making her comfortable, it was still a day off from work. Tried to make the most of it by tidying up while she rested and got some reading in here and there.

Spring is all around and I love it. Cool mornings and evenings but warmish days. The flowers are blooming. This is perfect weather in my book.

Right Now:

Coffee.

This Week:

This week should be better. It’s spring break for my daughter so at least there isn’t any stress over homework getting done, etc. I’m at work all this week but have Monday off as a holiday.

Reading:

Everyone seems to be reading Daisy Jones & The Six so I shall join them.

I forgot to bring Daisy with me to work the other day so I started this book as well, Tomorrow There Will Be Sun.  I see mixed reviews for it but I cannot put it down.

Tomorrow There Will Be Sun

Watching:

The Walking Dead was crazy last week! Something pretty shocking happened. Tonight is the season finale. I hope it’s just as shocking but these producers love to leave us hanging.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I tried Maca root powder this week. I have been adding it to my coffee. I was told it would help balance out hormones but when I Google it I see that it also helps with energy as it contains quite a bit of iron. I am low on iron again which explains my wiped out state. It’s a little bitter though. Not bad when blended into coffee but just stirred in makes a lumpy mess.

Grateful for:

Good movies. A lot of movies are coming out soon that I want to see. Us, is already out and I can’t wait to see it.

If you could pull one book out of your pile to read right now, what would it be?
