Sunday Salon

I will admit that not only has February been a slow reading month for me, but this week has been particularly atrocious. The literacy event our school had on Thursday with four authors and a Soul Food dinner went well. Now I just need to get the pictures from our principal's wife.

My husband has been at the State Wrestling Tournament since Tuesday. He was planning on coming home last night, but I encouraged him to stay another night since they had five wrestlers in the finals and wouldn't finish until late. Their team won their division, so it would be hard to leave the celebration. He has volunteered for a few years, but this is his first year as a paid coach. (Even though I encouraged him to stay, now at 8 AM I am ready for him to be home).

Work has been particularly stressful. All the district teacher librarians were called in to a meeting with Human Resources at the end of the day on Friday. Ominous? They are planning on changing our jobs dramatically. Some of it is great. Some of it is horrible and makes my stomach hurt. And there is nothing I can do about it.

Because of the above - especially the last thing- I have hardly read at all. I just can't focus very well. I have managed to be up and on the internet at 3 AM and I certainly have not been sleeping.

Last night I watched Courageous and loved it. What a great movie. My oldest daughter was attempting to sleep next to me while I watched, and I woke her up laughing so hard at certain points. Overall, the movie is not supposed to be funny, but there are a few hilarious moments, and the message is great.

What else was I up to this past week?

* Playing old Whitney Houston music at school in the library

* Buying a new pair of Dansko shoes (retail therapy after the Friday meeting)

* Taking my girls to eat at Carlos O'Kellys

*Working on Saturday at the public library

*Running 8 miles yesterday after a long hiatus from the treadmill. Felt great during, but not great after.

The sun is shining. It's a beautiful February day. I'm not sure what I will do after church yet, but I plan to enjoy the rest of my weekend and maybe even attempt reading a bit.
