Sleeping in, Hunger Games


Aaahhhh. Sleeping in this morning as late as I wanted was awesome.

Then a long fairly lazy day with family {plus my step-son’s friend, who spent the weekend.} Tonight we watched The Hunger Games, which the kids had all seen, but I had not. (But I read the books first!)

BTW, it’s about 1:45 a.m. and it’s still 81 degrees in the house. Would have been a good night to sleep outside again.

Hunger Games, naps, feeling old, job apps, and draw something


I wish I was at The Hunger Games right now. I got into the series a while back when my yoga-librarian-book club friends were reading them. Then recently, with all the hype, the kids started reading them. We’re all really looking forward to the movie; I would have loved to be the first to take the kids. But I’m still not feeling that hot and standing out in the cold somewhere for hours, when it’s a school night for the kids, did not sound very enticing. So, I’m sure they’ll go see it this weekend at their mom’s and I’ll just have to be content to see it on the 2nd go-around. I feel old.

Today, I had a nap in the morning after dropping the kids off {this is getting old, and again with the feeling old}, and then submitted another job app this afternoon. This evening, I met my co-host at the studio to work on cutting a very wordy but interesting interview that is way too long. After all of this time, it’s still hard to cut good content, even when it makes a tighter interview!

I also downloaded this new game, Draw Something, on my Kindle Fire. ‘Cause I’m trendy like that. {Not an early adopter though, as apparently the game has been out for 6 weeks already.} Since I can’t draw, I imagine I will suck at the game. But there’s only one way to find out.

Summer of Harry


My step-son is on his 5th or 6th Harry Potter book of the series. This is the first summer he’s been “allowed” to read Harry Potter (thanks to his mom) and he is devouring them. He’s been watching each movie after he finishes the book as well. Love it. The girls aren’t into Harry Potter as much. One of them is still on book one, the other is not interested. Shame. But I did get my older step-daughter reading The Hunger Games series…
