As some of you know, I have been sick all weekend. Thanks for all of your well wishes. I do believe the fever has broken so that’s good. Just in time to go back to work! Grrr.
I spent the entire weekend eating, reading, watching TV and napping and not necessarily in that order. This morning I woke up and noticed that the Sci-Fi channel was running a marathon of Land of the Lost. Remember that show? My kids and I sat down and laughed at all the cheesy special effects. Will was such a hottie. He reminded me of Greg Brady.
After dosing myself with Tylenol and Codeine, I passed out and then woke to an empty house. Turns out the Hub took the kids for Slurpees so I had the house to myself. I took that opportunity to finish The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan and cried my eyes out. It’s such a good book. I cannot wait to hear Kelly Corrigan on Book Club Girl’s Blog Talk Show this Wednesday. Click here for more info on that.
We just threw the burgers, hot dogs and corn on the grill so it looks like dinner is well on its way to the table. We’ll sit out on the patio tonight and enjoy the view and then I may have another Tylenol and Codeine cocktail to wash it all down.
My entire day is centered around the premier of 24 (Season 7) that begins tonight at 8pm PST. I love Kiefer Sutherland. I love it when he goes nuts and runs all over heck to save the world. I was especially entertained when the City of Santa Clarita was nuked a couple of seasons back (as I live in Santa Clarita). They shoot 24 here quite often so it’s a little bit too real for me sometimes, but fun!
We plan to order Chinese take-out, put the kids to bed and then enjoy the show. That means I have to get a few things done today. For one, some reading. Still working on Twilight but should be done today. I am also starting The Terror. A friend of mine said it was the best book he’s ever read so I can’t ignore it any longer. I have to put some props together for the production of The Music Man which is in two weeks! I also have to rehearse some lines and blocking with my son as he was so out of it from the surgery this past week and couldn’t stay for the entire blocking rehearsal. I am also in need of a new printer and the market is tossed in there somewhere.
That’s a lot to do, isn’t it? So much for a lazy Sunday. I’m still waiting for the male part of this family to wake as they got home close to 1am from the Monster Truck show last night. Hopefully they’ll wake soon as I feel the need to get going.
On a side note, it is absolutely beautiful here in Southern California today. Blue skies and I can tell it may even get warm! What’s on your plate today?
