Is anyone else having a hard time believing that January is almost half over already? Crazy! Our first week back to school went much better than I expected, even with dentist appointments and a migraine thrown in.
Highlights of the week include the Seahawks winning their playoff game; finishing two five-star books (The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin, and Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery – reviews will be coming later this week); playing cards with friends Friday evening; and seeing Jack Reacher Saturday evening.
Oh, yeah. And, Kevin got a job. 🙂 It’s not full-time at the beginning; it’s not even in his field, but it’s a start.
Today, I will not be reading Sunday Salon posts or responding to comments until late in the afternoon. I will be avoiding the internet in order to prevent having the outcome of the Seahawks/Falcons game spoiled for me. The game is on smack in the middle of church, so we will be DVR-ing it and watching it in the afternoon.
After football, I may do some reading from one or all of the following: The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma; My Antonia by Willa Cather; The Panem Companion by V. Arrow; and More Baths, Less Talking by Nick Hornby.
What were the highlights of your week? Any good reads I need to hear about?
