Sunday Matters: Sunday Sure Comes Up Fast

Sunday Matters

Why are the weekdays so long and the weekends so short?

This past week was okay but I wasn’t feeling great and our water heater decided to spring a leak which required replacement and I had something going on nearly every night but here I am, none the worse for wear.

Right Now:

Besides the normal stuff that make up my Sunday morning, I’ll be bowling this afternoon! I haven’t bowled in years. Not sure if I will actually be able to participate given my neck pain but we shall see.

This Week:

My daughter starts rehearsals for Shrek on Monday. Auditions for leads are the following week. I know she is wanting to be Teen Fiona but she is also trying to decide on a fairy tale character to go for too. Little Red Riding Hood is a good pick but they seem to want someone younger for that role.

My son’s classes are all ironed out now and he is entering week 2 of the semester. On top of his studies he’s looking for extra work and wants to dabble in community arts by getting involved with the local arts commission. All the talk about defunding the National Endowment for the Arts has him all fired up.

NEA

Also happening this week, Valentine’s Day. I will be at the doctor. It was the only appointment I could snag so I took it. We don’t really go out for it anyway. Too busy and crowded for my taste.

Reading:

Ulysses. (#ulyssesRAL2017)

Quote from Ulysses by James Joyce

I am trying really hard to read other books in between because Ulysses requires many breaks but I’m finding it hard to return to it when I do step away. Part two is such a chunk. I may have to drop everything just to get it read.

Watching:

Not much but tonight I will be watching The Walking Dead. Cue the streamers!!!!

Making:

Dinner better make itself or deliver itself to my house tonight because all I want to think about is The Walking Dead and nothing else.

Grateful for:

People with a good sense of humor. If you’re funny, I love you. That’s all I need to say.

Sunday Matters: Family Time & A Little Football Too

Sunday Matters

It was a pretty good week but didn’t it feel long? By the time Friday hit I was ready to dive into bed and sleep for a very long time.

Right Now:

My food shopping is done and I am just sitting here enjoying that first cup of coffee. There is nothing like that first cup  of coffee, is there?

This Week:

I have a lot of short appointments nearly every night this week. Not big things. I thought about cramming them all into one night but that stresses me out when things go over so I decided to spread them out.

On the blog front, I hope to have a few reviews posted. Also, I need to make some time to go through my review copies so I can figure out which ones need to be read right away. I don’t usually have more than a couple at a time but because everything is looking so good this year, I have about eight I need to read at the moment.

My son starts a new semester this week and managed to get the classes he needs even with his late registration date. Hope the week goes smoothly for him. I always loved my first day of school.

Reading:

The Ulysses read along is in full swing.  We are using the hashtag #ulyssesRAL2017 to chat about the book. It’s not nearly as dense as I thought it would be but I am only about 100 pages in.

I am also reading My Husband’s Wife. What a title! It’s not starting off as I expected it to. In fact, my preconceived notions on what it’s about may be entirely wrong.

Watching:

One more weekend and The Walking Dead will be back. In the meantime, I’m not in much of a TV mood besides watching The Mary Tyler Moore Show. I can’t believe she’s gone! I used to spend my college years staying up late, watching reruns of her show while doing homework.

We will also be watching the Super Bowl as a family. I’m not a fan of the two teams playing but it will be fun to stay at home and not worry about going anywhere. Food will be made. Commercials will be watched. We’ll get the Puppy Bowl in there somewhere. Just being together as a family means so much to me these days.

Making:

For game day you just have to have chili. Today’s will be of the ground turkey variety. I am also going to make some queso dip and serve it with warm chips. There will be hot dogs and who knows what else. I bought up the store.

Grateful for:

My “one word” this year.  It’s already working for me in big ways.
