It is weird to write the date for today and not put my birth year instead of the current year. I almost typed in the wrong year, but I caught myself.

I did not watch a movie this week. I did finish one book.

Life

I was only at the school two days this week. I had told them I was unavailable on Wednesday due to a prior commitment. It was canceled. but I decided to take the day anyway. They still checked to see if I could come in. Luckily, I was far enough away from home to not be tempted to say yes.

I need some nice senior AP classes. I had all freshman classes yesterday and I was exhausted.

It was a pretty low-key week even with my wife’s birthday on Monday and Valentine’s Day on Wednesday. My wife does not like going out, so we had takeout both days.

It was a cold, rainy morning at the barn on Tuesday, and then turned into a cold, snowy day. They did find three extra volunteers for me since it was going to be a harder day with all of the horses in all night, so it was still a pretty easy day.

TV

We watched the Super Bowl Sunday night. It was a good game even though the wrong team won. I thought Usher’s halftime show was a good one. I wrote a little about the commercials here.

We watched Tracker on CBS this week. It aired after the Super Bowl. It stars Justin Hartley as a guy who finds missing people for the rewards. I thought it was a good premiere and we will watch more.

We watched the season premiere of Abbott Elementary. We were glad they had the change in jobs for Janine a fellowship so they don’t have to have some contrived reason for her to go back to her regular job.

The CBS shows are premiering this week. So far all I have watched is NCIS Hawai’i. I’m looking forward to getting to Ghosts and So Help Me Todd.

Books

I finished one book this week.

The Collectors edited by A. S. King — A collection of short stories for teens written by nine of today’s best YA authors. All of the stories revolve around collecting and collections…
