I’m just resting my eyes

By Tara Zandra | July 18, 2010

I’m typing this up while lounging in bed because I’m seriously contemplating going to sleep now. I have a book that I may read but that’ll put me out very quickly. It’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” as I’m joining some other parents from our park group in a discussion this week. Thankfully the reminder was sent today because I hadn’t even bought the book yet. Though I read it in high school, I remember basically nothing.

Discussing books is not something I normally do- I tend to take them at face value and just decide if I liked them or not. I dislike discussing books so much that I actually once told Chris the way he’d know if I was ever stupid enough to have an affair would be if I told him I was joining a book club. Guess it’s a good thing he didn’t remember me saying that when I told him about the discussion this week! I figured I’d give it a try and it’s only 2 books and 2 meetings this summer, not an ongoing thing. Plus it’s with people I really like, my kid gets to play with her friends, and there will be a potluck. Sounds like a good deal to me.

So I’d like to be witty and write something of interest, but in all honesty, I’m just wiped out. Here’s the past week in a nutshell:

*Saw “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and really enjoyed it.
*Am finally sewing a quilt for Daisy that I cut out approx. 4 years ago.
*Tabitha completed 2 sewing projects of her own this week.
*Daisy once again proved she is the funniest person in the family, but the story will not translate well in the re-telling. Suffice it to say she’s cute and funny and had us all in stitches during dinner one night.
*I watched a “Kate & Allie” episode on Netflix. It had Kelsey Grammar and there were a few laughs, but in general, I don’t think it survived the test of time and I doubt I’ll be watching any more episodes.
*A friend said it was too hot to go to park this past Friday and I disagreed and went. He was right and I really wished I had stayed home even though we were only there an hour.
*Chris now gets home at 3:30 and it’s wonderful!

I’m out.
