Thankful for: Almost three full days away with Kevin! Kevin and I took off Thursday morning and didn’t get back until a few hours ago. We went down to Spokane, stayed at the Oxford Suites, ate out, watched movies, talked our heads off, played Skipbo, and just enjoyed being alone together. We needed it so much after Kevin’s crazy work schedule the past few months.
Looking forward to: Super Bowl, baby! I know it’s not for another week, but it’s all we’ve been talking about, and it’s the main thing I’m looking forward to. I have a very busy week to get through first, with dentist and eye doctor and orthodontist appointments, a board meeting for Royal Family Kids Camp, school, and leading worship next Sunday, but that afternoon will find me planted in front of the television with Dad, ready to scream my head off.
Reading: I still seem to be in a bit of a reading slump. I did manage to finish one book while we were away, but I haven’t been reading as much as normal. I am enjoying A Star for Mrs. Blake but it isn’t a page-turner. The Flannery O’Connor stories have been verrrrrrry slow-going. And I just got Allegiant back from the library; I had to turn it in before Christmas, even though I was 2/3 of the way through it. Hoping to finish all of these by Friday, but who knows?
Recently finished reading: A Different Sun by Elaine Neil Orr – review goes up tomorrow
Listening to: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater and Sold by Patricia McCormick
Recently finished listening to: The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
Watching: While we were away, Kevin and I watched Last Vegas (It had some funny moments, but wasn’t great.) and Captain Phillips (Amazing. I do not understand why Tom Hanks wasn’t nominated for an Oscar.)
Blogging recently: Audiobook Review: What We Lost in the Dark by Jacquelyn Mitchard
What are you reading, watching, looking forward to, or thankful for today?
