Life: It Goes On - April 12

My windshield Thursday
when I left work
It's definitely April in Nebraska - there was more than a half inch of heavy, wet snow on my car when I left work Thursday and by Saturday shorts and short-sleeves were the order of the day.

It's been a quiet week here with nothing more than a trip to the vet (cat now has to have antibiotics shoved down her throat daily - that's fun) and a one a.m. call from a sick kid (grabbed my shoes and purse and ran to bring her home). You'd think that would mean I got a lot read during the week, but you'd be wrong. Malaise struck me down. Four days of grey skies and drizzle will do that to a girl.

I spent yesterday being lazy productive. No such thing, you say? I beg to differ. I hardly left my desk but wrote three posts, finalized taxes, cleaned out my desk, and made a huge dent in my blog reader. It was just the day I needed!
This Week I'm:

Listening To: Sia - after watching her video for "Big Girls Cry," featuring 12-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler, I decided to check out some of her older stuff and have a relisten to her latest, 1000 Forms of Fear. On YouTube there's a great piano version of "Chandelier" which I'm loving.

Watching: "The Real Housewives of New York" are back! I'd call the Real Housewives series' my guilty pleasure but I don't feel guilty at all about watching the shows.

Reading: I finished Let's Pretend This Never Happened and, lordy, did that book make me laugh! My review will post Tuesday. Let's just say, it's possible I will keep this one to reread. Then yesterday I started reading Rebecca Rotert's Last Night At The Blue Angel for an upcoming review and I'm so impressed with the writing in it. It's gonna be hard for me not to do nothing but read until it's finished.

Making: Bacon avocado burgers, spaghetti pie, pork chops and wild rice, chicken and stuffing. We're still working on how to cook for two so one meal's been lasting a couple of days; at least we don't have to cook as much!

Planning: Do you remember all of those things I was planning to get done last week? Still haven't done most of them. So, yeah, I still need to finish up the spring decorating, clean Mini-him's bedroom, and get back into my office. I've got some major rearranging and painting I'd like to do but I'm not going to let myself do any of it until I get these other things done.

Grateful for: Sunshine!
My dad, Miss H, and
the Big Guy

Enjoying: Football. Yesterday was the annual spring scrimmage game and it's just what I need to tide me over until the season begins. Nebraska has the biggest turnout for their spring game of any college team - this year almost 77,000 people attended, including a good chunk of my family.

Feeling: I'm going to have a lot of time to myself this week and I'm hopeful that I'll make good use of it.

Looking forward to: Fingers crossed, a week with more energy.

What are you looking forward to this week?
