I’m joining in with Leigh Kramer’s “What I’m Into” again this month. Here’s what was up in the Q household this September:
My parents spent a week helping us out with the kids while we got adjusted to two working parents again. Isaac met both sets of my grandparents. And we bought our tickets for a visit to our Guatemala abuelos and family this fall.
So fun to visit and laugh with family that loves us so and doesn’t judge when Ella collapses on the floor of the Olive Garden grumbling, “I take off my shoes. I am angry!”
Okay, this show is not new to us. We’ve gone through all four seasons twice fully and started the series again and again with new friends we try to convert. It’s pretty much amazing.
So you can imagine Billy and I totally freaking out when we realized we were sitting next to Dr. Sara Tancredi one afternoon at lunch. I wish I would have recognized her sooner.
Once I did, I tried to mouth my discovery to Billy. Naturally, he understood nothing and kept saying, “What? What?” Unfortunately, I don’t have a hand signal for “You’re sitting next to an actress from one of our all-time favorite shows!”
Currently, we’re watching Revolution. It’s got us pretty hooked. A look at life in a post-electronics world. As you might imagine, it involves a lot of agriculture and sword play.
I also have been catching up with The Mindy Project. I fell in love with Mindy Kaling after I read her book. Super witty and oh so funny. She was a writer for The Office, and now this is her own show.
Oh, and it was the Grey's Anatomy season premiere. Yeah for the fall line-up!
Maybe to counteract my TV viewing, but definitely to whittle away my baby weight, I signed up for a 5K this December. Now… after the last time… I said “Never again!”
But I’m training this time, and I did darken the doors of the gym a couple early mornings this September.
Last month, we rocked our USA patriotism. September was for Guatemala. Independence from Spain is celebrated every September 15. We gathered at a local Guatemalan restaurant and enjoyed tostadas, tacos and pepian.
What have you been into this month?
