So sorry for my lack of posting, but I have been lurking and keeping up with all your goings-on.
We had a nice visit at my in-laws over the weekend. I worked an especially long day today as two of our physical therapists were on vacation and we needed to cover their patients, but luckily hubs was able to take the day off and stay with the kids while they were out of school for the holiday. We're gearing up for a busy middle school basketball season. My daughter (a seventh grader) is thrilled to be playing point guard for the varsity basketball team (traditionally eighth graders) for her middle school. They have two games this week, plus the usual after-school practices when they aren't playing games. They have a new coach who has a much more positive and upbeat attitude than their previous coach, and it's apparent that all of the girls are having much more fun this year. I've also been summoned for jury duty again
(second time in about five years
), and am "on call" for possible jury selection nearly every day for the next two weeks. Jaclyn~
Your hubby is so sweet to do the dishes so you could post on the HH. I hope you liked City of Bones
. I'm a little more than halfway through my reread and first read it over a year ago. Did you picture anyone else as Jace while reading, and what specifically about JCB turns you off in the role of Jace? I know you don't watch Fringe, but hubs and I just watched the two hour series finale we'd saved on the DVR. I'm so sad to see that special and unique show come to an end, but the finale was a satisfying conclusion with a wonderful nod to the fans, and that's all I could have hoped for or expected. Sean~
Good luck staying warm this week....at least you might get lots of writing done while keeping the stove burning.Lynne~
I'm glad to know the temperature has decreased and hope it's a little more bearable for you (and Rob
). How are the rewrites coming along? Have you had fun keeping Little Man entertained until he returns to school?Marielle~
You and your bf are doing so well getting settled in and decorating the new house. Hopefully you can take a breather soon and relax. I wasn't up for work today either, and would have loved an extra weekend day to sleep in a bit.Sarah
~ Congrats to Seattle for acquiring a new pro basketball team. Will they be named the SuperSonics, or will they go a completely different direction since it's a new team? I remember how exciting it was when Nashville got the Titans and the Predators.Susie~
I hope you enjoyed the conservatory. I have such fond memories of my visit to Cheekwood with you and Tonise on your trip to Nashville. Hubs finally took our tree outside Sunday afternoon
....at least yours was still decorated until just recently. Ours had been sitting there bare since just after New Years because we've been busy. I figured taking the tree outside was the least
he could do since I put away all the other ornaments and every other Christmas decoration this year.
Are you enjoying Downton Abbey? I decided to wait until the season is over since I missed the first two episodes on PBS, and I'll have my own Downton Abbey marathon. I'm resolved to try my best to remain spoiler free, but we'll see how that goes.
I'm sorry I couldn't respond to everyone's posts, but I can't scroll back any earlier without losing this post. I'll try to catch up with the rest of the posts tomorrow evening.
