Sunday Matters: Say Hi to Mickey

Sunday Matters

As of this moment, my son is on a flight headed to Orlando for what we hope is an experience of a lifetime. The Disney College Program promises to be many things and it’s all very exciting. He was assigned to recreation at Typhoon Lagoon but it’s being refurbished so he will be temporarily reassigned. Right now, we have no idea where he will end up!! He finds out on Monday.

Right Now:

Just letting it all soak in. A tiny piece of me wants to tear his room apart because it is such a disaster. Deciding what to take and what to leave was difficult. As you can imagine, it’s quite a mess.

Oh, and his sister is already taking over his bathroom.

This Week:

We are in production week for The Music Man. Two weeks of shows but we’ve done this so many times I think we have it down.

The cast list was posted for Oklahoma! She will be in the ensemble and a ballet dancer. I am not familiar with the show so I am not sure what a ballet dancer is doing in Oklahoma! but I guess we will find out.

Other than shows, there is life group for me and volleyball practice for her but she’ll be missing her tournament on Saturday because of the show.

Reading:

I NEED to finish Seven Days of Us. It’s good but this last bit of it is a slog. If I can get through it, my next book will be Nomadland and The Book That Matters Most.

Watching:

I watched two episodes of that new show 9-1-1 and guess what? It’s horrible. It’s from the same guy who does American Horror Story and even features some of the same actors but the writing is simplistic at best and the acting and production quality leaves a lot to be desired. It is definitely not as good as Emergency! from the 70s. I am dating myself by mentioning it but I was a young child when it came out!

Emergency!

Making:

I made curry and rice one night, some pasta with olive oil, garlic, Compari tomatoes and loads of cheese and then the rest is like snack stuff. Avocado toast is what I have most days.

Grateful for:

The book club I belong to. We met recently to select our books for the year and it is always a good time. The list will be posted under the Book Club List tab soon. This club has been in existence for over nineteen years. More like twenty, really.

Your turn. What are you reading right now and what are you looking forward to this week?

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.
