Sunday Matters: Time for Reflection

Sunday Matters

I almost didn’t post today but as it turns out, I have a few minutes to reflect on the week so while the Green Bay game plays on in the background, I am sitting here typing away.

Did you have a good week? Mine was pretty good. I feel like I accomplished a lot. Every to-do item on my list was checked off by Friday and that was a nice way to end the week.

And, I finally started painting The Girl’s room. It’s halfway done! Progress. The paint color is Tahitian Breeze by Behr. I love vaulted ceilings but painting them is a bit of a challenge. Honestly, my legs are sore from going up and down that ladder.

Right Now:

Green Bay is playing so The Hub is glued to the TV. We just finished dinner (chili and cornbread) and there’s plenty for leftovers throughout the week. After this, I have to get my stuff ready for the week and then I will settle down to watch some TV.

This Week:

This is audition week for Peter Pan. Tuesday and Wednesday will be exciting days. The Girl is trying out for a Lost Boy (Curly) and Tiger Lily’s friend Talking Rain or Whispering Leaves, I can’t remember which.  She’s been dancing and singing all over the house.

Reading:

I am about halfway through with Finders Keepers by Stephen King. It’s good but there’s something about it that isn’t sitting right with me.

I just started The Boys in the Boat for book club. I have about a week and a half to read it. October is sneaking up on me. I hope I finish it in time because it was my club pick.

Watching:

On Friday night The Girl and I hunkered down with Sleepless in Seattle. I’ve seen it soooo many times but I love it. I also managed to slip in The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles!! Then, tonight, it’s Fear the Walking Dead. I hope the Green Bay game ends by the time it starts or there will be words. JK.

Making:

Chili. Turkey chili which was delicious but it was 105 degrees when I left church this evening so it’s not quite chili weather. Still, it was quite good.

Grateful for:

I’ve been challenged a lot lately both at work and in my personal life. At first, I experience a tiny moment of pure fear. You know the type I am talking about. The type where you spend fifteen minutes hyperventilating and panicking about not knowing enough. But then something happens and I kick it into gear and all seems right with the world. I have learned SO MUCH these past six months. I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to rise and succeed. It’s  a very good feeling.

What are you grateful for this week?

Sunday Matters: A Place for Everything

Sunday Matters

Good morning! We all made it through the week! I know some of you had busy weeks,  myself included. This week is no different but I will, WILL carve out some time to put things in their place this week. I feel a little lost when things are all over the place. Do you get that way? I am fairly organized but I still come home at the end of the week to find mini piles of crud everywhere. My kids come home, and drop their stuff and that’s where it sits until they pick it up again. I feel like it sucks my life force dry. I gotta get a handle on that.

Yesterday, the middle school group at church had its Back to School Bash. It was an 80s theme and it was so fun! And, you won’t believe it but I spotted Atlas Shrugged! Yes! A parent was reading it and we had a moment to discuss the book. I love when that happens. Atlas Shrugged, 80’s music and kids having fun. It was a very special day. Oh, and there was a DeLorean! It was street legal and everything! So cool.

Right Now:

Enjoying my second cup of coffee. I’ve given up coffee during the week so the weekend coffee fix is turning out to be a real treat. At the moment, I am trying to get the kids moving so we can go to church. They are being slugs today.

This Week:

It’s kind of an exciting week. Peter Pan rehearsals start for The Girl. This time she is trying out for a Lost Boy (Curly) and one of Tiger Lily’s dancing friends.  We won’t know what she gets until October. Long wait.

Reading:

Just started Finders Keepers by Stephen King. It’s really good so far. This cover is so gruesome. I kind of wish his covers wouldn’t be so mainstream. I feel like more people would read his books if they didn’t see all this gore on cover.

Finders Keepers

Watching:

Tonight, I will be watching Fear the Walking Dead. I believe it’s back from its break last week. At least, I hope so.

Making:

These days I never know what to make. I feel like a big pot of chili but it’s so warm out. Not quite chili weather.

Grateful for:

I am grateful for the  little signs I’ve gotten lately that I am doing the right thing.

What are you up to this week?
