Sunday Matters: What’s In a Word?

Sunday Matters

I am still pondering my one word of focus for 2015. I am really stumped. I have a few in mind but none seem to fit. I know a few of you had a difficult time selecting a word as well. Hopefully I’ll have it before say… 2016. Simplicity was a good one for last year

Right Now:

Due to a certain football game, my church activities have been pushed to this evening. We’ve attended the evening service once before and it’s kind of a boring crowd (to be honest). I hope they are a little more lively tonight. The good thing is that I don’t have to rush to get ready so I am sitting here doing what I do best, sip coffee and keep the couch warm.

My return to work was okay. One day dragged on and on and I can be all fine about it now because it’s over but at the time I was in major bitch mode and wanted nothing to do with anyone or anything. Many of you stopped by to cheer me up or caught me on Facebook and it was great. Really. I wish I could put all of you in my pocket and just carry you around.

This Week:

Nothing major this week. Rehearsals, a driving lesson for The Teen, one doc appointment. Totally doable. I may have to toss the Otter Pup into some suds as she is smelling a little corn-chippy. Cat lovers are going “ewwwww” but yes, dogs tend to smell like corn chips after awhile. Maybe because of the corn in their food? I don’t know but her name is not Fritos so she must have a bath. Lucky for me, she loves her baths.

Reading:

I am reading some good stuff. One book is for a tour later this week. Very interesting read. You’ll read all about it later this week. I started the new Stewart O’Nan, as well.

Watching:

I’ve got to get caught up on American Horror Story. I’ve missed the last three episodes. I have them all recorded. I just need to carve out some time to catch up. That is one show that The Hub and Teen watch with me so it would be good if we could all watch at the same time. A dream, really.

The Golden Globes are on tonight. Not sure if I’ll watch though. I am more of an Oscar gal.

Making:

I am in the mood for chili. I don’t think anyone else is though.

Grateful for:

Good medical insurance. I’ve needed to use it a few times this past week and although I had a premium increase this year, I don’t care.

Happy Thought For the Week:

I should have plenty of time to read this week which is always a good thing.

Sunday Matters: One Last Hurrah

Sunday Matters

Work. Meh. I have a few more days to ponder it but it’s never easy to return after a long break. I feel like I am all hungover. My sleep patterns are all over the place and my body is off, but in a good way.

I’ve eaten stuff I don’t normally eat, visited with family that I don’t normally see and have watched movies with abandon. It’s been wonderful. As I look at the calendar, I realize that I have less than a week to read my book club book, and a little more than that to read the tour book I signed up for.

That eye/headache mess. Phffft.

Right Now:

I am on my stomach, in bed, typing this out, waiting for the house to heat up before I venture downstairs for coffee. As soon as it gets warm enough, I’ll get ready for church. The Girl does not want to go which means it will be a perfectly pleasant morning dragging a sulking tween around.

This Week:

I return to work on Wednesday. I purposely took the extra days to not have to deal with MONDAY. But rehearsals start-up again this week so it will almost be like a regular week. I need all of your good thoughts for Wednesday because when you have this much time off, you really start to think that big changes are needed. You know?

Reading:

I am reading It Was Me All Along, written by a blogger I follow. I didn’t have an elaborate way of picking my first books this year. It had to do with what I was behind on because of this headache and all the stuff that came with it. It’s very heartfelt. I am enjoying it. It’s about her obsession with food. Which is just perfect to read at the beginning of the year after all of the excesses enjoyed over the holidays.

Watching:

I watched The Great Gatsby and it really was a visual masterpiece. I snuck August: Osage County in while purging my shelves. It was full of tension, that one. Which made it great to watch while chucking books into a box. Thwack! Thwack! I really liked American Hustle. Enough to want to see it again. I just got The Hundred-Foot Journey from Netflix so I hope to watch that today.

Making:

Nothing. Yet. I did make spaghetti and meatballs the other night, along with a really good pot-roast but the cupboards are bare again. I will hit the market on my way home from church. Fun! With The Girl in tow, and all. The Hub won’t be too thrilled either. We all hate grocery shopping.

Grateful for:

A few extra days with my kids.

Happy Thought For the Week:

Friday. I am already looking forward to it.
