Thankful for: That Kevin’s company has hired another part-time cabulance driver for our area. Kevin had his first two-day weekend since last January 23rd! He will be working a lot less hours, and have some nice long weekends at home. I am looking forward to doing some fun family things.
Also, the fact that our first week back to school is over. It’s always hard to go back after a long break.
And, that the Seahawks are going to the NFC Championship!
Looking forward to: A semi-down day. Today was busy, with a Heavenly Teas party in the afternoon. We had 17 ladies here, besides the gal who does the tea presentation. It was fun, but Mom and I had planned it before I checked the playoff schedule, so I had to DVR the ‘Hawks game. I then had to stay offline until Dad and I had a chance to watch it, for fear of spoilers. Anyway, I’m looking forward to some downtime after church. I’ll probably watch the 49ers/Panthers game with Dad, do some reading (I am horribly behind with the O’Connor stories), and maybe take a nap. Then, in the evening, we will have Family Movie Night. It is Noah’s turn to pick, so I will be looking to find a copy of Pacific Rim at Safeway, since it’s not on Netflix streaming or DirecTV pay-per-view.
Reading: A Different Sun by Elaine Neil Orr (loving it so far); A Star for Mrs. Blake by April Smith (loving this one, too); and The Complete Stories by Flannery O’Connor (this one is proving to be a bit more tough-going than I expected)
Recently finished reading: Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield (review will be up tomorrow)
Listening to: The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult (so good) and What We Lost in the Dark by Jacquelyn Mitchard (this is the sequel to What We Saw at Night, which I really enjoyed)
Recently finished listening to: The Ghost Writer by John Harwood
What are you doing today? Reading anything I should add to my ever-growing to-read list?
