It’s been a while since I’ve done a To Do List, mainly because this summer, the only activities I’ve managed with my son’s illness and my father situation are : Wait, Watch & Pray the Phone Doesn’t Ring. But it’s a holiday weekend and it feels like maybe I can take a breather:
Go See Robot & Frank: This movie looks like exactly the kind of film I need: charming, smart, indie. Yes, I know it’s about an older man with dementia. But I heard Frank Langella on Fresh Air and he sold me on the story and I love him. Plus, The reviews included the word “caper” which I’m all all for. Love a caper. And Capers– so good on salmon.
Buy Fresh Yoga Pants: The time has come to buy some new yoga pants. I splurge ever so often and this is the weekend. Though I did spot Tim Gunn’s tweet the other day that mused: Are all those women in yoga pants really coming from or going to a yoga class? I suspect not. Well, Tim Gunn, you’re right. We’re not. But if you’ve ever worn the original pants from Beyond Yoga, you would never want to take them off either. Soft, Comfy, flattering. Even Mr. Tim Gunn would agree.
Watch some soccer: The fall season kicks off at our house with my older son in a 3-day tournament. It’s slowing dawning on me that next year– by the grace of God and the Common Application– he’ll be playing soccer somewhere else. And my husband and I will be sitting home looking at each other wondering what to do on Saturdays and Sundays. One more season on the sidelines.
