Reflections of the way life was this week

I can't hear see, hear, or use the word Reflections without hearing this song in my head instantly:
01.- The Supremes - Reflections by The Supremes on Grooveshark

Then of course I think of China Beach, which I want to own on DVD, but it costs one million dollars. Well, $200, but you get the point. Anyway, let's add up the week, shall we?

Plus
1. These two, celebrating birthdays today - my brother Sean and my nephew Drew.
2. Went to the post office and it was painless. That never happens.
3. This passage from a book I finished this week.
4. Getting to talk about books, reading, and how I use Goodreads with a Goodreads staffer for a half hour during lunch on Wednesday, then getting a $30 amazon gift card for doing so. I would pay other people to talk about reading so it was a big win in my book.
5. Prepped 10 freezer meals on Wednesday night at my neighbor's. My first time using Wildtree products, which are like Tastefully Simple but organic. I'll report back after I eat the meals.
6. Stitch Fix got it right with this sweater, sorry for the crappy iPhone pics.
7. I'm guest posting over at Jana Says today. A note to parents from someone without kids.
Minus
1. Not enough hours in the day this week
2. Know-it-alls. You're insufferable.
3. On the five block walk to Trader Joe's, some kid on a cell phone gave me a flat tire twice. Dude! Get off the phone and mind your distance from me.

Not too shabby, it's always nice to have more pluses than minuses. How did your week turn out?

  1. Happy Birthday Sean and Drew! That book quote is so good. Seriously being able to read and talk books should be our jobs. Awesome they even gave you money! Total score. You know how I feel about this week, more like this month but we are almost through it.

  2. That is awesome you prepped so many meals! Can't wait to hear back on that. Also, "Know-it-alls. You're insufferable." YES...I have a co-worker next to me as I type this who makes me want to stab my own ear as to not hear her anymore. I am not even kidding.

  6. I want someone to pay me to talk about books, reading books, and to just actually read books. I've always said my dream job was all about books. :)

  18. Getting paid to talk about books sounds a-mazing. I have a friend that has been talking to me about Wildtree and I'm interested. I really like what the company is about, and I love all things healthy. I hope your recipes turn out well!
