Sunday Matters: The Day in Which Moms are Queen for a Day

Sunday Matters

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. We all deserve a much-needed break today, don’t we? I know I do after the week I’ve had.

I moved on Friday Yep! I moved twenty plus years of stuff into a tiny office space. I had a cube before. A large cube but it was in a two person office with a door so it felt pretty private. Now I am out in the open and right by a main door. Fun!

Here is a photo. See my windows? The windows to the reception/copy room area? Behind that chair, are two more workstations and a slew of bookshelves. No room for my stuff!

New office space

Right Now:

No big plans this Mother’s Day. Church, of course and then? Who knows? I am too tired to do much and The Teen is exhausted from all of his late nights on stage. Maybe take-out? I don’t know. I kind of want to hit The Last Bookstore in Downtown.  Click on that link and I promise your jaw will drop to the floor.

This Week:

Unpacking. Ugh. Oh, how I hate it.

Got to go in for some blood work later this week because I am not feeling that great. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have to go in every four months anyway to monitor the Lupus but I know that my results will not be good this time around.


Just starting A Little Life. Everyone says this book will devastate me! Why am I so eager to read it then? I haven’t a clue. I guess to see what all the fuss is about. I am also reading Strays, a YA novel.  You know how some YA novels can be rather juvenile? This one is not. It’s quite good.


Mad Men. I am into season four now. That Don Draper. Can’t decide if I like him or not.

Bates Motel! I believe the season finale is this Monday. It has been so weird and good.


I made tacos this week, twice. Chicken stir-fry one night. Haven’t a clue what we’ll have today.

Grateful for:

Okay, so The Teen wrapped Dirty Rotten Scoundrels last night but he gets to reprise the role one more time. This is the news I’ve been teasing you with.

The Teen on stage.

He gets to perform at the Jerry Herman Awards! This is a big, big deal!! I am so proud of him. Ruprecht lives!

I am grateful that he has this opportunity. I don’t even want to say anymore about it because I feel like I will jinx it so that’s all I will say for now.

Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Friday: Changes Are Imminent

Wish / Do

Where did the week go? On the one hand it dragged but on the other, it flew by. I guess the back and forth kid stuff, meetings and the like kept me busy enough to not know what day it was. I hate when that happens.

In all the craziness I got to thinking about my blog and decided that I will be switching out the template soon. Very soon. The theme I am currently using has been discontinued and my latest commenting problem was due to the template being outdated. To be honest, for two years now I’ve been trying to simplify my life and that should include my blogging space as well. Right?

I’ve found three templates that could work for me even without customization but I wanted to give you all a heads-up. I don’t want you to stop by and be surprised by any of it. Hopefully, you’ll find the new format cleaner and more streamlined. It will be in by the weekend! Exciting, huh?

Now, a little Friday update. We have our last track meet of the season this weekend and it is supposed to be WAY hot! We also have to figure out how to get the other kid to his SAT test which is on the other side of the world… not really but not anywhere near where we will be for the meet. Saturday is also The Hub’s birthday so we’ll have to work some celebration in somewhere. The Teen is rehearsing like crazy for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels too which makes family time darn near impossible.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday so far. I am just glad that the end of the week is here. STILL have not moved. STILL don’t know if The Girl made choir. It’s a waiting game.

Until later. Happy Friday!
