So some of my fellow bloggers are doing “cool” regular blog posts each week, so I decided I could do that too. Maybe I will stick with it, unlike the now defunct “Tuesday Tunes” of my blog’s ancient history. Having “Wasup Wednesdays?” also does not limit my subject matter. This is good because it allows anything to be included in my post. This is bad because it allows anything to be included in my post!
This Wednesday at Chez Horne:
School is on the agenda. Hopefully, it will be a better day than Tuesday in terms of student motivation. The boys need to work on a demonstration presentation for their drama class tomorrow. There is also a need to work on monologues for drama by all four. They like drama–but it is less fun when there is actual work involved.
Football is also a part of the plan for today. (I know, you think, isn’t it always on the agenda in some fashion or another?) Only Calvin practices tonight, so we only need to go to one location. It’s a relatively easy night on the football schedule.
Last personal post (2 posts and practically a month ago), I reported my weight loss and exercise plan. The dieting part has gone great. I can’t report on poundage lost because, as you may or may not remember, I am not getting on the scale at this point. But I can see a change in my face and feel a change in the waistline of my pants, so something is working. I have stayed pretty close to the plan for most of the past 4+weeks, and I am finding it pretty doable. I also really like keeping my bloodsugar level stable because I haven’t had one of those in hypoglycemic-like episodes since I started. I am still struggling with the exercise bit, but I will make it work. I am determined.
I finished a little contemporary novel called Jemima J. I enjoyed it as brain candy. I don’t recommend it because there are parts that weren’t very edifying. But if you are someone who appreciates the humor of Bridget Jones’s Diary, you might enjoy this. I bought it at the Salvation Army for 25 cents, so I can definitely say it was worth what I paid for it!
I, at long last, am nearly finished with the first Harry Potter book. I restarted it about 3 weeks ago, and I would be finished if it weren’t for reading the above “mind candy” book and that pesky little school year having to start. I love Harry Potter, and I have listened to almost all the books on cd over the years when the kids weren’t old enough to read the books. I just hadn’t made time to read them myself. Book 2 is waiting patiently on my bedstand for me to finish book 1, and that I shall do.
I also picked up something new to me at the library–books by Alexander McCall Smith. One begins a series called the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, and the other begins a series called 44 Scotland Street. I have just dipped into both of these, so I am curious is anyone else has read them or has an opinion about them.
Now I must forge ahead into my Wednesday, or nothing will happen . . .
