Life: It Goes On - May 17

I'm largely unplugged this weekend - except for the reading I'm doing on either my Nook or the iPad. We're celebrating my dad with a family vacation which means you won't see me around Facebook or Twitter for a couple more days. I'll have stories to tell by next week, I'm sure. With between 15-17 of us in the house at any time, there are certain to be lots of laughs, lots of love and at least one or two things that will become family lore.

This Week I'm:

Listening To: I'm continuing to listen to The Story of Beautiful Girl. It was recommended to me as a book club choice but my crew thought we had enough sadness in our line up. It would make an excellent choice, though.

I've also been listening to podcasts, catching up on some old favorites and discovering some new ones. Have you read Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project? She and her sister have a podcast called "Happier" which I'm really enjoying and picking up some great tips from. For example, Rubin recommends setting an alarm to remind yourself to go to bed at the time you should since most of us don't get enough sleep.

Watching: "The Voice" - next week is the finals but I'm not sure America has moved the best voices into it. "Elementary" - do you watch it? What did you think of that ending?

Reading: I finished Silver Bay and Where Women Are King this week and I've started The Canterbury Sisters and Calling Me Home, which is this month's book club selection.

Making: Egg casseroles, taco soup, popcorn snack mix, pizza, and pancakes for dinner.

Planning: Mostly, I'm planning on using the coming week to recover from the weekend.

Grateful for: My family, of course!

Enjoying: Tell you what I'm not enjoying - rain. Enough already! It's May already - time for sunshine and warm days.

Feeling: Relaxed. I was definitely ready for a few days away from housework and real work.

Looking forward to: A weekend with nothing on the calendar - which will not be any time soon. This is how summer disappears on a person.
