Sunday Matters: Pixie Dust and Rain

Sunday Matters

Production week for Peter Pan ends with tonight’s seven o’clock performance. The Girl will be sad about it ending but track starts Monday. Yep, this Monday so she won’t have much time to think about it.

Right Now:

We’ve got church in the morning but the middle-school ministry is not meeting since they are at winter camp, so I have the evening off. The Girl does not though as she will be on stage. I am usually backstage with her but something happened with the scheduling this time around and it didn’t work out. I’ve worked every closing show for so many years I am not even sure what I will do with myself.

This Week:

I have a referral for my foot first thing Monday morning. It feels so much better but something is not healing right because my foot clicks when I walk. Clicks and pops and feels like it’s going to give out. It’s a really weird feeling. Like, piano wire getting tangled up. The x-ray taken this week shows a somewhat fresh break and this happened over a month ago so it really shouldn’t look like that. But other than the foot, I feel great!! Still living on my sleep stores from winter break.

Nothing else going on except track practices and a book club meeting to discuss Ghettoside.

Reading:

Right now, I am reading Lost & Found and it’s just so quirky and fun but also a little deep. It reminds me of Where’d You Go, Bernadette which I absolutely loved.

Lost & Found

Watching:

I haven’t been watching too much of anything lately.

Making:

Sigh. Making stuff requires a trip to the market and I’m really not feeling it. Plus, I received a really crazy weather alert on my phone which made it sound like some pretty severe weather is coming our way. If I go though, I will probably pick up soup fixings.

Grateful for:

Talented kids. I love, love, love that my kids are into the arts. I love to see them on stage. It just fills me with joy.

Sunday Matters: A Long, Much Needed Weekend

Sunday Matters

Good morning!! We woke to rain this morning. Granted, it’s not coming down at a steady rate but it’s cloudy and gloomy and everything is wet. That’s rain for us! I love it!

I alluded to some time off in one of my last posts. It’s the end of the year and I am in a “use it, or lose it” situation with my vacation time so I am taking Monday and Tuesday off and 11 more days between now and Christmas.  Then, between Winter break and January I am taking more time off. Yes!!

What do I have planned for these two  days? Well, I have to finish the Girl’s bedroom. It’s painted now. Also, the kids are on Fall break this Monday and Tuesday so we’ll hang out. The Girl turns twelve on Wednesday so there will be some celebrating for that.

Here’s a photo from the Dodger game we attended last night. We had field level seats and The Teen almost caught a foul ball.

Right Now:

I really wanted to sleep in this morning but it wasn’t in the cards. I just could not sleep so now I am up sipping coffee and catching up on my reading.

This Week:

Monday and Tuesday, off. The final cast list for Peter Pan posts on Tuesday. Wednesday is The Girl’s birthday. Somewhere in between that I need to make a headboard for The Girl’s room.

Reading:

I joined three read alongs this month (Salem’s Lot, The Quick, Neverwhere). I’ll be using some of my time off to put a dent in those.

Watching:

Tonight is the last episode for Fear the Walking Dead. My prediction is that Nick will somehow end up with Rick and company on TWD. I was really liking all of the characters but the show took a turn and fizzled out, in my opinion.

Wednesday is American Horror Story: Hotel!! No Jessica Lange this year but the addition of Lady Gaga should be very interesting.

Making:

I haven’t a clue what to make for dinner tonight. The rain has me wanting something warm and cozy but it’s not cold out, really. What are you making? I need some ideas.

Grateful for:

I’ve been a bit anxious all week long. My health insurance premium is doubling, again for 2016 and it’s forced us to choose another plan. I’ve been anxious all week because of it. When you have an autoimmune disease, or any existing condition really, just the idea of changing doctors is a bit worrisome. I prayed on it and asked for a sign and got one so I turned the paperwork in and I am just very grateful to have this other option. It will save us nearly $300 a month and maybe we will get better care. That’s how I am choosing to look at it.

Okay. Fill me in. What are you all up today? I did a good job of catching up with blog posts last week but if I missed stopping by your blog or Facebook page, give me an update if you can.
