Well, it’s been a roller coaster week. As many of you already know, Kevin’s new job disappeared. I spent all of Wednesday in a funk, but am doing better now. He’s back to applying for everything that comes up on the job boards, and I’m back to praying for a job for him.
But, I don’t want this blog to turn into one big depressing rant, so enough about that. I did finish one book this week: Eldest by Christopher Paolini. I listened to it on audio with my 14-year-old, Noah. It was his first time through, and a reread for me. I liked it as much as I did the first time – my review is in the review database, if you’re interested.
Friday was a nutty day: orthodontist appointment for Jonathan; haircut appointments for the boys; grocery shopping; and then visiting at Michelle’s. Kevin and the kids all had plans for the evening, so my folks took me out to dinner. Our town is teeny, and yet we have this amazing restaurant called The Chalet, where you get food that looks and tastes like it came off the Food Network. It was amazing!
Yesterday was a lazy day – I did a lot of reading, played some cards with Mom, and signed up for a few more reading challenges.
Today will be low-key. Church this morning, and then I will probably watch the play-off games, even though I’m still in mourning over my beloved Seahawks. I hope to get some reading time, too.
~ The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma – I am loving this as much as I did the first in the series!
~ More Baths, Less Talking by Nick Hornby – Can’t get enough of these bookish essays.
~ My Antonia by Willa Cather – Beautiful.
~ Promised by Caragh O’Brien – I’m not very far into this last book in the trilogy, but it starts strong.
~ The Host by Stephenie Meyer (audio) – A reread before the film comes out.
~ Dark Magic by James Swain (audio) – Just started this one, but I like the premise.
What will you be doing today? Who are you wanting to see make it the Super Bowl? (My picks are the 49ers and the Patriots.) Or could you care less? What are you reading these days?
