Last Week I:
Listened To: I finished At Home and started Lisa Taddeo's Three Women. I'm struggling with it, to be honest; I've sped it up so I'm listening to it at 150% speed in an effort to try to get through it.
Read: I'll finish Glennon Doyle's Untamed today and I'm also, very slowly, getting into The Mirage. I've been reading/listening to a lot of nonfiction lately, though, so I may break that up with some fiction.
Made: A killer chicken salad, the usual summer staple - pasta with fresh-picked tomatoes and basil, and strawberry shortcake. Today I'm making roasted tomatoes and basil because I have about a quart of cherry tomatoes that need to be used and we cannot eat them as fast as they are coming off the vines this year.
This Week I’m:
Planning: Weston will be with us until Thursday so I'll be getting more done in the basement this week. More for the Goodwill, more garbage out, and, undoubtedly, more working to convince The Big Guy that two people do not need this much stuff.
Thinking About: How badly I have been doing as a blogger. I haven't participated in readathons in an age, haven't updated things around here in even longer, and I'm terrible about responding to comments and visiting other blogs. I think my plan for my word of the year, "Enough," needs to be to do enough work as a blogger to regain the real love for it I used to have.
Feeling: I'm missing my family today in so many ways. Missing getting the whole big clan together at my parents, missing my kids all being home together. I miss my people!
Looking forward to: A very quiet week capped by an even quieter weekend. BG has some pretty big dental work scheduled for Friday so he'll probably be laid low for a few days.
Question of the week: Back to what I asked in the first paragraph - how are you holding up? What ways have you found to make things better or to make them feel more normal?
