It Had To Be Done

Ninety to ninety-five percent of what I do is for other ppl.    I'm a mom who works 30 hrs a week, comes home and usually doesn't stop until 9 or 10pm at night.   It's going to be like that right now.  And that's ok.  I enjoy my kids, the events they are in, the money I spend on them.  Ok I enjoy all those things MOST of the time.  Every once in a while, however, I have to do something for me.  And I'm slowly doing it more often.  A new shirt for work.  A slice of cheesecake from the bakery.  A new book  Maybe some stash to go along with that book.

I only went for the book, but some of the yarn was already in my cart from a previous midnight shopping trip.  And then a few more got thrown in, you know, for free shipping.
So there you have it.  Just a little something to brighten my day.  
BTW I have started reading Nancy Drew's The Secret in the Old Clock.  The first couple of chapters were a bit slow, but then it did pick  up and I remembered why I loved them a…

Cuz, Why Not??

One of the theatre moms is starting a book club.  Not your typical you-need-to-read-this-book-in-this-time-period-or-else book club, but one with a different take.

All you have to do is pick a book that falls into one of these categories.  Once a month we get together to discuss what we decided to read.  We can read at our own pace.  If we finish 3 books, great. If you are only on chapter 2 of your first book, that's ok too.

Sounds like my kind of club!!!  I figure it will give me incentive to start reading again.  It gave me incentive to get to the library!

I picked Baby Girl up after work and went to the library.  Her stack is on the left, mine is on the right.  What we choose for recreational reading is VERY different!!!  I'm hoping to start the Nancy Drew one later tonight.  Right now I'm watching Castle reruns and will watch a couple of episodes of Hogan's Heroes before I switch to reading.

Let's see how this will work out.....

The Reports of My Death Are Greatly Exaggerated

Well hello there!!!  Remember me??  I used to post here.  Then life happened.  Like REALLY happened.  It's been more than a bit crazy around here.  A bipolar alcoholic who turns 50 apparently doesn't do well.

So since January we moved

and I went back to work

While some things are very different, other things have stayed the same.

Kids, band and theatre are still a constant.

*some* knitting has happened.  I'm trying to get back into some kind of schedule for me.  It's been difficult but today has been a quiet day.  No alarm was set.  I went grocery shopping, made dinner

AND dessert.  Kind of felt like old times.

I am going to try and get back into blogging again.  I'm not sure how that will go, but I will try.

There are lots of unknown things in life, but there is one thing I do know.  We will be just fine.
