Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.
My boys showed me a really nice Mother’s Day. Flowers on the kitchen table from my husband, cards from G and J plus a new movie and a gift card to eat out. Followed by dinner out at Fazolis (we like it better than most the expensive places and added bonus it wasn’t crowded at all) and then dessert at Dairy Queen.
Glad to have the morning to work on my post and plan out the week. Don’t forget to go join in the fun with Sandra (our host) and the other bloggers linking up over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
Pretty humid this morning with an expected high of 85 and a chance for storms this afternoon and tonight. Typical May weather. Same for the rest of the week, sunny with a slight chance of storms. Highs in the mid 80s. I’ll take it!
Right Now I Am
Working on this post, pondering what to eat for breakfast, and thinking about jumping in the shower before I finish the post. Also, glad I threw laundry all over the bed already so I can’t give into the temptation to go back to bed.
Glad to be making this post as I have a lot to do this week and so have all those little tasks on my mind.
On My Reading Pile
Finished Better Than Before: Mastering The Habits Of Our Everyday Lives by Gretchen Rubin. As I read it, I realized I had at least read parts of it at some other time. Still it was a book worth a re-read and made me think about some habits I’d like to add. Started Under The Wide And Starry Sky by Nancy Horan. I’m thinking it should be a fairly quick read.
On My TV
So they cancelled two of the new shows I’d started watching, Deception and Alex, Inc. Both were cute, silly shows but probably not worthy of a Twitter campaign to save them. Will probably just watch The Voice this week as we have activities during my other two shows I like to watch.
It’s so nice out, I’d rather be outside than watching television. G gave me the latest Thor movie for Mother’s Day so I may start that while folding laundry.
Something Interesting I Watched
(I also went to see Avengers: Infinity War at the movie theater. No spoilers but certainly not my favorite movie and definitely not for the younger crowd simply because it’s a lot to process.)
What I Found While Surfing The Net
Something excellent! They’re making a 3rd installment of the Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter signed on for the project per The Hollywood Reporter!
I loved these movies. Will it likely be extremely stupid? Yep. Will I go see it anyway? Absolutely!

Looking Forward To
Bunco! Seeing J’s induction into the Junior National Honor Society. Is it too early in the week to say the weekend?!
Looking Around The House
Bed’s covered in laundry, still need to unload/reload dishwasher in kitchen (I let it go last night), and every other room also needs attention.

Quote For The Week
Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction. (attributed to Harry S Truman but I couldn’t confirm it by my quick research)
Are you making it through the busy month of May? What’s on your agenda this week?
