Thankful for: A Saturday with no obligations. I slept in, got some stuff done that has been languishing on my to-do list for a while, and watched Prisoners. Wow! What a film – the twists kept me guessing, and acting was brilliant. Hugh Jackman is more than just a pretty face, people!
Looking forward to: Watching the NFC Championship game this afternoon – go ‘Hawks! And I’m thankful for the fact that, win or lose, we have a quarterback who has a lot of class. Also, Family Movie Night tonight, but I have no idea what movie Noah is going to pick. It was his turn last week, too – he was the last name drawn in that round, and the first name drawn in this one, so he gets to pick two weeks in a row. I’m hoping he picks something better than what we watched last week: Pacific Rim. It’s only saving grace was that the male cast members were fun to look at.
Reading: I’m still reading the same three books (A Different Sun, A Star for Mrs. Blake, and Flannery O’Connor’s The Complete Stories). Sigh. It hasn’t been a great reading month so far this year. One of the reasons is my new iPod, a late Christmas present from Kevin. I’m a bit addicted to how easy it is to check Facebook, reply to e-mails, and get lost in games like Word Wall. Plus, I’ve been busy working on stuff for Royal Family Kids Camp this summer. I’m also really behind Noah in our Lord of the Rings reading. Fortunately, he is very forgiving.
Listening to: The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (just starting this one today)
Recently finished listening to: What We Lost in the Dark by Jacquelyn Mitchard (review coming soon)
What are you doing today? Watching the football championships?
