Now that school's back in session, I'm on the run a lot more. Between shuttling kids to school, E's cross country practice, J's Young Women's activities, M's Cub Scouts, N's play dates, my Parent Liasion responsibilities, and my freelance work, life has been a little hectic lately. But, the schedule is starting to work itself out a little. It's definitely easier to plan when you know what all the expectations are.

Tonight I'm going out to an upscale French restaurant with my college roommate to celebrate our birthdays. She's in July and I was in August. We planned to do it last year when we both turned 40, but it never quite came together. So, we'll be celebrating 41 instead. We're supposed to get very dressed up and I'm still in deciding mode as to what to wear. I'm thinking it might be time to take out the black and white geometric cocktail dress that I picked up a couple of years ago at a resale store. Yes, that might just be the ticket.

#84 is Shamus in the Green Room by Susan Kandel. This is the third Cece Caruso mystery novel. For some reason, this one didn't hold my interest as much as the previous two did. I'm not sure if that's because I was more distracted or if it was due to the story.

#85 is The Giver by Lois Lowry. This was a book for my Book Group. We did two this month, The Giver and Night. There was some interesting discussion about memory and its importance as well as how our feelings and perceptions inform our humanity.

My new DVR/DVD player arrived and is now hooked up. I need to read through the instruction manual (and why is it that those always seem to be written in another language and badly translated into English) and give it a test run so that it's all ready to start recording next week for premieres as well as while I'm away in Ireland the following week. Wouldn't it be nice if electronics would do what you wanted without all that pesky programming stuff? ;)

Now, it's time to get a few household related chores done before I have to go pick kids up from school. I'm so looking forward to sleeping in little in the morning!
