This Week I'm:
Listening To: NPR all week after bailing on my audiobook. I'll start Khaled Hosseini's And The Mountains Echoed tomorrow.
Watching: The RNC convention, at least as much as I could take of it. I sort of hate the conventions. A lot of cheerleading, a lot of telling us what they'll do if they're elected but not much as far as how they think they'll manage to accomplish those things.

Making: A cocktail I discovered last weekend - a French 95 (bourbon and champagne - sounds weird together but oh, so yummy!), grilled cheese, chicken and orzo, caprese pasta, Asian chicken salad, and birthday cake.
Planning: A bridal shower in a couple of weeks for my niece.
Thinking About: Family dynamics. We spent the evening with old friends last night and what can only be called horror stories about problems with their siblings and parents. BG and I both left feeling very blessed.
|As laid back a visit as you can get!|
Feeling: Frustrated. I have ended up with headaches the past few Saturdays. I've powered through as much as I can but I'm not getting nearly as much done as I'd like which means I don't get Sundays for a bit of a recharge day.
Looking forward to: Heading off to Milwaukee this weekend. Because of the way we had to take days off, the boys will head up a day earlier than Miss H, The Big Guy and I and head back a day early but we'll have plenty of time with the six of us to have fun!
Question of the week: It's ice cream season - what's your favorite flavor?
