Hello, all–how has your week been? Mine was busy (but good) and we topped it off with a busy (but great) weekend. In retrospect it may have been a little too great, as my seven-year-old just burst into tears at bedtime when she learned that she had to go back to school tomorrow. I can definitely relate.
Loving: The holiday spirit making itself felt all around me, from the lights decorating our neighbors’ homes to the carols being sung by the kids’ school chorus. It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…
Thinking about: Slowing down. Anticipating but not hurrying. Appreciating the present moment.
Anticipating: Well, Christmas (yeah). Especially the fact that the whole family will have TWO WEEKS off from work and school to spend together. It’s going to be good.
Watching: ‘Freaks and Geeks’ on Netflix. It’s hard to believe that I have never seen this show, considering how many now famous actors got their start on it. The one who kills me is little John Francis Daly. He is tee-tiny yet looks exactly the same as he does now on ‘Bones’.
Listening to: Weezer, as we had the chance to see them in concert at the Tabernacle last night. They played a lot of old stuff at the beginning in an acoustic set, then rocked out to the new album in full-on electric mode. It was really fun.
Eating: Nothing worth mentioning. I’ve been off my cooking game lately and I’m having a hard time getting motivated to meal plan. Has anyone got a great recipe to break me out of a cooking slump?
Wishing: That there were more hours in the day (as ever). That I could spend more time with my kids. That I could somehow do everything that matters and everything I want to do, too. That weekends could last a little longer…
How was your weekend?
