Monday Musings

So I have noticed that I have not entered one of these posts since May 16th. I will not be recapping the past month but here are some things I have been thinking about and dealing with.

1) The weird pinky pain I talked about last time has gone away. I was dealing with a weird pain in the back of my head for a few weeks but that has also thankfully gone away.

2) The last day of school is Friday and I am not sure who is more excited - Clark or me.

3) My DH has started a new job and we are all trying to adjust. His hours have changed so he leaves earlier and gets home later than before.

4) Clark starts soccer on Wednesday and I am nervous. It is not really a team just 6 weeks of "soccer academy" where they learn the rules. I hope he does well.

5) I have been very crabby and irritable lately. I am even getting on my own nerves.

Here are a few pictures for you.

5) Is there life after death?
6) If so is my mom proud of me?
7) What is this annoying pain in the back of my head?
8) What Clark is thinking sometimes
9) How to balance it all
10) Why all of a sudden old movies are being remade into TV shows

Books Read May 2016


May was another down reading month for me. I only finished two books for the month. Here is what I read.

1) The Cutting Season by Attica Locke - the story of a murder that takes place at a Louisiana plantation. This one was a slog for me. The mystery was pretty boring and the characters were pretty annoying.

2) Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple - I loved this book. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. Now the story line is pretty unrealistic and you have to seriously suspend disbelief  but it was a fun read.

Monday Musings

Here we are at the start of another week. This has been a bit of a rough one around here so this is what I am thinking about.

1) The pinky finger of my right hand is bothering me. It almost feels like I pulled something but I am not sure how that would have happened.

2) We had an issue at school last week. Clark took something from another boy, pushed him when the other boy confronted him and then lied to his teacher about it.

3) It actually snowed yesterday. It did not stick but still snow on May 15th is ridiculous.

4) I am really in need of a vacation but I am not sure it is in the cards this year.

Here are the pictures for the week.

Monday Musings

Here we are in May which hardly seems possible. Here is what I am thinking about this week.

1) I hit a car in the parking lot at work last week. Nothing makes you feel stupider than hitting something that is not moving.

2) My reading mojo has seriously decreased. I have been reading my current book for 10 days and am only halfway through.

3) However my knitting mojo is in full effect and I have knit quite a bit the past couple of weeks.

4) The guys went out of town over the weekend so my Mothers Day gift was a weekend to myself.

5) I am not sleeping well and this is really starting to get on my nerves.

Here are some pictures for you.
