Sunday Matters: Where Does the Time Go?

Sunday Matters

I ask the above question at least three times a month.

I am feeling rushed again. I blame it on the past week. Too many appointments. I try not to schedule them all at the same time but then again, when you go in for one appointment, you feel like getting it all done. Like car maintenance.

Right Now:

I wish I was the type of person who could sleep in but my natural alarm goes off early and then if for some reason I sleep through it, The Otter Pup does not. She decides it’s time to dance on my head. Which is what she has done literally every day this week.

I have coffee. There’s that.

This Week:

This week should be better. We’ve been given the approval by The Girl to finally see a volleyball game so we will visit my old high school on Tuesday night to see her play. Yep. My baby playing on the same court I cheered on!

Also this week, we are trying to keep my son busy. His girlfriend went away to college and as I predicted, there is some moping going on.

Reading:

I blew through The Breakdown. FUN read.  Fun, as in it’s crazy and very hard to put down. I launched right into A Stranger in the House but my review copy is corrupted (ebook) so I miss every other sentence. I am 30% in and it’s almost exactly like The Breakdown which is weird.  Not the same story but the same scenarios.

Watching:

Still working my way through my DVR list. I got through some shows but not The Princess Bride, as of yet.

Making:

I made spaghetti one night which none of my kids really like. Weirdos. I need to figure out what to make for the team lunch. The one that I will bring down to the school next month. Ideas?

Tonight, I could go for a steak but it won’t happen unless someone else shops for it and cooks it because I am out the door tonight volunteering.

Grateful for:

Friends who read. I  love to talk books with you guys.

BTW, has anyone seen the crazy trailers for American Horror Story? Hint, it’s about election night. See one here.

Sunday Matters: Working for the Weekend

Sunday Matters

I feel as if I work all week just to get to the weekend. I would love for them to be a little longer but I’ll take what I can get! This weekend was pretty good. Not a lot going on. I got to browse the bookstore. I got to eat some yummy food. Oh, and I had a moment to put the house in order. I cannot stand when things pile up.

Right Now:

Just sitting here with my coffee. I should be writing out bills but who the heck wants to do that? No one.

This Week:

The beginning of the week will be the same old stuff but this weekend I am attending a leader retreat. I wasn’t able to attend last year’s event so this will be my first time. Because of my neck injury, which is finally healing, I won’t be able to do the crazy stuff like obstacle courses, swinging on ropes, etc. I am secretly glad about that.

Reading:

This is the part that is supposed to change weekly but hey, I did finish a book. Mark the calendar!! I really want to pick up the Murakami I have but I have a book in front of it. Maybe I will pick it up anyway.

Watching:

Same stuff. I need some new shows. I did watch another episode of Black Mirror. That show is depressing as hell. If you need a pick-me-up do not watch that show but if you want to sit there staring at the screen with your mouth hanging open, and don’t care how you feel afterward, then go ahead and watch it.

Making:

Not making it yet but I saw a picture of BBQ’s brisket so now I want brisket. Brisket and mashed potatoes and maple carrots? Yes. Please.

Grateful for:

I’ve been watching my food intake and the Noom app has been a real help. Easy to use. Free. Keeps me honest. I’m grateful to have it with me at all times. Much easier than writing it out which would get boring fast.

That is all I have. What are you doing this weekend?
