Lots of good stuff this past week. Like...
~ I finished up my Feature Writing class this week. Good students, good grades, and lots of writing and possible publishing got done.
~ "Lost" was awesomely Awesome. (Although I'm already trying to deal with the pre-grief I'm feeling from next week being the season finale.)
~ I've been on a reading kick lately and have had some of those "good reading weeks" (as opposed to bad spells, where I just give up on a book...by the way, the older I get the more I realize that it's okay to just stop reading a book if I'm not liking it...no guilt, nothing.) I got hooked on the "House of Night" young adult vampire series (I didn't want to...but they, literally, just sucked me in!) and finished the first three books within the last two weeks. Now, I'm leaving undead teenagers behind and just started Love Walked in by Marisa de los Santos yesterday (and I'm really enjoying it so far).
~ Sydney's softball team won the second half championship last night and tonight they play for the season championship. Sydney has moved to playing second base and has done great, and she has like a 800 batting average. Woo Hoo!
(I'm totally not going to mention...okay, I will!...the EXtreme disappointment I had with "American Idol" this week. Allison was my favorite and Danny just gets on my last nerve (sorry Gary...I know you love him!), so I was very upset with the elimination this week. (Say it with me.."Let's put the GO in Gokey!") LOL)
Lots of fun stuff on tap for today. Like...
~ I'm about to head out with my niece to the community college where she just received a music scholarship. I'm really proud for her and excited that she wanted me to go around campus with her.
~ Tonight is the aforementioned Championship Game for the season in Sydney's softball league. Around 6 pm tonight...say a little (or a very BIG) cheer for us!!!
Lots of things to look forward to this weekend. Like...
~ We're going to see "Star Trek" with some friends tomorrow night. My Inner Geek is extremely excited!
~ Mother's Day is Sunday, of course, and I'm looking forward to spending some time with Mom and Gary's Mom and grandmother. (And to just feeling thankful that I have the privilege of being a Mom as well.)
(On Saturday, I'll also be serving the meal at the memorial service for my friend who passed away this past week from cancer. So, keep them in your prayers tomorrow if you will.)
I hope all of you have a FANTASTIC weekend as well.
And I hope that, on Monday, I will be able to provide you with lots of great pictures of Moms, and Trekkies, and softball CHAMPIONS!!!!
