It hasn't been all bad. I had an exceptionally social week. Tuesday was book club, Wednesday I met friends for happy hour, Thursday I met Mini-him for lunch, and Friday Mini-him and I went to a play (The Cripple of Inishmaan). That's a whole lot of spending time with other people for this woman; I may hide in my room all day today! Not really. I have to get taxes started. Yuck.
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I'm about half way through The 19th Wife. It's one of those books that has been running to research, which is always a good thing.
Watching: The Olympics, duh. I may have watched the men's curling team's gold medal match more than once. As much as I'll miss them when the Olympics are over, there's also a part of me that's looking forward to getting back to watching other things.
Making: Winter comfort foods: breakfast for dinner, cauliflower and backed potato soup, goulash. Also, croutons with what was left of last week's loaf of homemade bread. And I tried my hand at sourdough bread. Not sure what I did wrong but let's just say that we'll soon have what we hope will be a lovely batch of sourdough croutons. We're going to have to start eating a lot of salads at this rate!
Planning: Bridal shower planning is in full swing. I got the invitations designed and printed yesterday and those will go out in the mail tomorrow. They went surprisingly smoothly and maybe took less time to do than it would have to write out the details on prepackaged invites. Maybe too smoothly? I keep wondering if there's a glaring typo I have missed that everyone else will notice immediately!
Thinking About: How much I could accomplish if I just had a week off work to get things done around the house.
Enjoying: See second paragraph. I am blessed with the people I have in my life and especially grateful to have raised children who want to spend time with me and who I very much enjoy as adults.
Feeling: Like it's time to make some changes in my life. I'm tired of not wanting to go to work everyday.
Looking forward to: A quiet week. I need to get caught up after last week.
Question of the week: I need game ideas for the bridal shower. Any suggestions?
