Sunday Matters: Hits Different

Sunday Matters

The house feels very strange. It feels like my kids are here but of course, they aren’t. Their presence is so strong, as is the whiff of vanilla perfume permeating the upstairs. My dog doesn’t seem to mind. She likes being the Queen Bee. It’s very quiet. I do like the quiet.

Right Now:

I am headed off to student ministry. We are in a series on Habits. It’s a good one. During the pandemic I’ve picked up some really good habits but also some not so great ones, like picking up my phone (on average) at least 75 times a day. Yes, I use it for work but I use it for a lot more too. In settings, you can check your screen time. So, I am trying to cut back on that a little as it’s interfering with my peace of mind as well as my reading.

This Week:

Monday I am getting COVID tested for my kidney surgery on Thursday. Wish me luck.

Reading:

Just starting The School for Good Mothers. I was set to start this last week but you know, life.

Watching:

We finished Cobra Kai. It was quite good. A few surprises. Looking forward to the next season.

Trying to find a new show to watch.

Grateful for:

  • My son finally has a new car after the Kia debacle. It’s been super difficult for him without a car so this is very good news. He got a Honda Element.
  • The offer of free test kits at Covidtests.gov. I ordered mine and had the kids order theirs just to have.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!

Sunday Matters: Until Next Time

Sunday Matters

I prescheduled this post because I am on my way back from dropping my daughter off at LAX. Hopefully the flights go smoothly because Delta was trying to reschedule her due to weather in the Midwest but I don’t see anything but some rain. I hope she has an amazing second semester.

Right Now:

See above. Ha.

This Week:

Monday is a holiday and like a true over-achiever, I scheduled TWO appointments on my day off. One is physical therapy, no biggie. The other is the pre-op for my kidney surgery. I am not even sure if that will happen with the hospitals full of this virus but so far the appointment is still a go. I don’t really have anything else going on which is nice.

I will spend some time this week prepping templates for some upcoming reviews. That way when I am done with each book I can just quickly jump on here and get them posted.

Reading:

I think my next book will be The School for Good Mothers. I have two review copies I really need to get to but I will probably reach for this one first because I am hearing all sort of things about it and I don’t want any spoilers.

Watching:

Working our way through Cobra Kai.

Grateful for:

  • That my first week back on the clock was good. I was dreading it so but it was fairly easy to navigate.
  • There’s a bit of stress that I’ve been dealing with, that I have not yet talked about but I am very grateful for my Bible studies that keep me grounded.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!
