You'd think that a ten-hour round-trip journey would have allowed me plenty of time to read but with all five of us in the car, there was always someone to talk to and we haven't all five been together for a while. I think I might have read five pages in three days.
|My parents, the bride, and the groom|
Listening To: More hip-hop, pop, and country music at the wedding reception than I have listened to all year. My goodness did those kids have a great time dancing to it all; even Miss H, who had sworn she wasn't going to dance, was lured to the dance floor.
Watching: My mother get up and line dance with Miss H, Mini-him and all of the other young people. Because eighty is only has old as you let it be!
Reading: I did finish a couple of books last week and hope to find the time tomorrow to get reviews written. I've only just started Donna Tartt's The Secret History for the TBR Reading Challenge.
Making: Coffee cake, raspberry-lemon muffins, and blueberry muffins for our shared breakfasts and brownies for our evenings (which we never ate because we didn't get back to the hotel until we were all exhausted both nights).
Planning: On getting Miss H's room cleaned this week so that I can start turning it into my office. Even though the thought of that gave her some pause - she wanted to know what would happen if she wanted to move back home. You'd think having watched her brother move home twice, she'd have figured out it will always, deep down, be her room if ever she should want it.
Grateful for: A family that loves each other so much, has so much fun with each other and loudly whoops when, in a wedding reception game, both the bride and groom agreed that his family was crazier than hers.
Enjoying: Happy memories, looking at everyone's Facebook posts about the wedding, seeing the house my niece just bought and my new haircut.
Feeling: Very tired. Is it possible that a hotel's queen-sized and all other queen-sized mattresses could actually be different sizes? Not. Comfortable. Can't wait to crawl into my own bed.
Looking forward to: Definitely NOT the weather we have forecast for this week! Snow is a possibility and the high never gets into the 40's. We've had such a great fall; it'll be hard to see it end!
What are you looking forward to this week? What fun things have you done since we last talked?
