Two evenings, one whole day, and part of yesterday were spent moving Mini-him home and getting things settled here. Part of a another day was spent moving furniture here around so that his stuff would fit back in his room. And are we done moving yet? No. There is still a sectional sofa stacked in my living room because it wouldn't fit down the stairs. Still working on a solution for that. Then last night Miss H told me she may be moving back sooner than previously thought. As in maybe by the end of this month. Just when I had decided that I really liked being an empty nester!
|I swear we just moved him in and now he's out - and piled up in my living room!|
Listening To: Continuing with Zadie Smith's On Beauty and very much enjoying it.
Reading: I finished In The Woods the other day. Now I'm racing to finish Jane Smiley's Some Luck for book club. That one is making me work - I feel a bit like I'm reading the 1930's Facebook page of an Iowa housewife...often as seen through the eyes of her children. Move along already! Once that gets knocked off, I'm back to Tana French with The Likeness.
Making: Um, nothing? Being so busy this week, we've kept it simple, some grilling, some corn on the cob. I did roast corn to use on a lot of things during the week and there was the great roasted beet/rhubarb experiment (more on that later).

Grateful for: Friday Mini-me's girlfriend and I went to Lincoln to help my parents do some work around their house. How great is a girlfriend who will spend one of her few days between summer classes and fall practicals helping my parents? The trip might not have been in my plans, but I'm always happy to get to spend time with my parents and pay them back even a tiny bit for all they've done for us.
Enjoying: Getting a lot of one-on-one time with Mini-him. And sleeping in for the past five days! All days should start at 8:30 a.m. - with several cups of coffee and a book!
Feeling: A bit overwhelmed. I'm going to take today "off" and then make a plan. Because I love plans and everything will be better once there's a plan.
Looking forward to: Book club this week - I need some time with my ladies!
