It's been a very quiet week and weekend. The Big Guy was gone all week for work, Mini-him's been out of town all week, and yesterday morning I dropped off Miss H for a flight to Chicago. She is meeting up with Mini-him there and then they will head north to Green Bay. Today they will be, literally, dressed from head to toe in Packers gear as they cheer on the Pack in their playoff game against the Seahawks. They are both beyond excited, in no small part because they feel like they are living out a dream for their grandpa (who taught them to love the Packers). He won't be far from their thoughts all day.
Last Week I:
Listened To: I finished Susan Choi's Trust Exercises which is some seriously twisty goodness. Today I'll start Jeffrey Colvin's Africaville. To be honest, I have no idea what that one is even about any more!
Watched: Because I was home alone two things happened: there were long periods when the television wasn't on at all and I binge-watched Season 3 of The Crown. I also watched Fiddler On The Roof and Nathan Lane/Matthew Broderick version of The Producers.
Made: Zip, zilch, nada. One night Miss H was home for dinner and I made grilled cheese sandwiches but that hardly counts. Otherwise, when the cat's away, the mouse will eat...a whole box of peanut brittle and the easiest meals possible.
Enjoyed: Dinner out with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law at the restaurant Miss H works on. Made her wait on us which is always a nice treat for a parent!
This Week I’m:
Planning: Can you believe that the corner of my basement I started weeks ago still is not finished? I'm hell bent to get that organized this week.
Thinking About: Daylight Savings Time. It's less than 2 months away and this girl cannot wait to come home and have some daylight hours to enjoy.
Feeling: Rested. My parents have been here this weekend; and while we haven't been entirely lazy, we have spent a lot of time just sitting and talking.
Looking forward to: Hearing about my kids' adventure.
Question of the week: It's time to start making soup again. What's your favorite soup?
