Happy Sunday! It is sunny and warmish outside. I am not complaining per se, but I do think this weather a bit odd for the middle of November. Still, it is nice to get some fresh air throughout the house before we have to lock it down for the winter.
It was a typical week for us all. Jim was on yet another business trip until Thursday. Connor had Forensics practice and even started attending the winter cross-country practices with some of the other members of the team. Holly had her typical dance classes. This weekend, however, saw her add another dance class on Saturday and a rehearsal this afternoon. Plus, now that her tap teacher is back off of maternity leave, she will have another rehearsal on Friday evenings as well. We knew the schedule was going to get worse in November, and that day is finally here. Fun times!
As for me, I have been swamped with budgets and month-end reporting. My manager has been out on medical leave, so there is no one else to help. Between that and all of the meetings I attend these days, the workday is over almost before I know it. Then again, it makes for rather intense and mentally exhausting days.
I have been reading though and still continue to write as much as possible. There is not much else getting done these days, but reading keeps me sane and relaxes me so it has taken priority over some of the other hobbies I would like to start up again. In case you missed them this week, I posted my weekly reading summary, reviews of House of Thieves by Charles Belfoure, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, and What If? by Randall Munroe. I finished off the week with the usual Fabulous Friday and What’s For Dinner.
There is no rest for the weary, and that means me. Holly has dance in a bit, and I definitely need to hit the grocery store. There is football to watch and laundry to fold. It will all get done; it always does. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I wish everyone a great week to come!
