The weekends are never long enough to both unwind from the week AND accomplish items on my never-ending to do list. However, I have checked off a few: wandered around the mall, went to a bunch of stores yesterday looking for a bookshelf I don't actually have space for, got groceries, made some lunches for the week, laundry is in process, and I procrastibaked more banana muffins to use up some bananas. What I have not done is change my bed sheets and look over lesson plans for this week. I have church in a bit, and then Sherlock is on at 8.

This morning I had breakfast with my old teammate, J. We of course talked about work, the ups and downs of each. The grass was not necessarily greener at her new school, and she sort of wants to throw her name back into the hat at my school. I told her it's not necessarily great there either, but at least it's friendly and familiar. Then again, she would leave teaching if she could. Who knows. It was good to see her.

BIG NEWS, PEOPLE! I started reading a book last night! What? Crazy. A post came up on FB from a year ago showing ~10 books I had not read. Well I had read half of one at the time. Since then, I read one book and started another (that I decided I don't like). Anyway, last night I started One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. So far, so good. I need to make reading books before bed a habit again.

My no soda resolution is going well so far. I've been out to eat 3 times and got iced tea twice and an Arnold Palmer once, which I did not even finish. Healthy eating at home is still under construction. It's basically the same as usual, but I am trying to incorporate more fresh fruit and vegetables.

What else was I going to say? No idea. Oh. Postcards have been written and so hopefully tomorrow I can stop at the post office. Just FYI, if you get one from me, I apologize ahead of time for whatever dorky message I wrote.

I haven't heard of that book - let me know how it goes!

No soda resolution is a good one. It's something I cut out of my diet a long time ago and I have no regrets. It's incredible the difference it makes, now I can't even drink it.

I think I'll always like soda, but maybe I'll savor it more since it will be an occasional treat.

It feels like this coming weekend is already filling up. How does that happen?

Looking forward to your card! Although it might be a while before I see it, as I won't be home for the next three weeks.
