Teslet is with me this weekend. We are working on planting the garden and cleaning the house. We'll probably get out to the special ice cream shop and hike a trail. Was thinking of having a fire in the fire pit and roasting marshmallows saturday evening. We'll see.
No big plans here. I would love nothing more than to spend the whole weekend in bed with my stack of books, but that isn't in the cards.
Maybe a run to Goodwill, the consignment store, and the dump as part of my continuing battle against "the accumulation." Maybe just holing up inside and waiting for the rain to pass.

Saturday - SO has the day off. Nothing planned during the day yet, but we'll be doing something. Possibilities are the park, zoo, checking out DS6's science/space kit, and bike/scooter rides. Tomorrow night we're going out to a family dinner for SO's mom's birthday.
Sunday - Church in the morning. I asked SIL if she had anything planned this weekend yesterday, but I haven't heard back yet. Maybe we'll visit with her and her 3 sons after church.
tesla, sounds like a good plan for the weekend. I should add clean the house to my plan as well!! The fire sounds relaxing already.
NIK, thanks for the reminder, I should check out a thrift store for some summer clothes.
Mandilwen, I miss my childhood camping days!
Tonight is relaxing, maybe some packing or reading.
Saturday: run in the morning with my friend, more relaxing/packing/reading, then I'm volunteering at a fund raiser dinner for my favorite nature center. This is expected to take most of the rest of the day. I may head down to my parents' house, then, as my sister will be there.
Sunday: run in the morning with another friend, then nothing planned.
Somewhere in there, I need to grocery shop, clean, and PACK! (I am maybe jumping the gun a bit, but so excited to finally get out of this apartment!)

My DS 16y and DD 18y are both working and going out with their SOs. Looks like it will just be me and DD 23y having some mother and daughter fun!

Saturday-- chores and then visit with my parents. Probably some schoolwork.
Sunday-- same old blah blah blah (grocery shopping, schoolwork, cleaning).
Have a good weekend!
For the rest of the weekend, I've got the "same old blah blah blah" that TA has. Whether I get anything else done on my massive to-do list depends on whether I actually write out the list that's in my head, or not.

So this weekend ill mostly be very tired and worn out!!!
Bodypump tomorrow then back to work--I have a big consular event on Monday night.
Sunday-Beach? Sounds good to me
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday are going to be hell. Then I get to have a performance review on Friday--lucky me
Tomorrow SO (Ha, first time I've used that!) is coming around noon to hang out kid free for the next 24 hrs. We've planned dinner out, cooking a Cinco de Mayo breakfast and church. If it's nice outside, we'll fit a hike in there, too.
I pick up my kid on Sunday...I'm counting on XH to take good care of him Saturday. We shall see what we are up to that day,depending on how well he feels. Praying it's a less than 24 hr bug.

Have to be at a garage sale at 8 am to pick up a shabby chic nightstand that will start my new decor. Then off to meet up with another seller to get another French provincial stand to create my own Paris decor bedroom. Try that with a jerk npdxwh....HA never happen! The home to unload and take a nap from 3 nights of no sleep.
Sunday hmmm unpack, arrange and try to learn how to buy furniture cheap enough to refinish and resell. Or maybe just couch surf.
Anyone up for a coffee on Sunday? I gotta make new friends that are close enough to go have some fun.
STBX has the kids this weekend so i flew to another city where my sister lives and my mom and dad drove up. We're having a great time. Did a bit of shopping.
Sunday, i'm running a marathon. First one this year!
won't be a PR, but i'm sure looking forward to it. then checking out some local microbreweries and heading back home on Monday. Nice to leave the stress behind.
After class we will have a nap, or he will, and then head to my place with the bikes to take a ride in the suburbs tomorrow. And do more schoolwork.
Sometimes I wonder if this whole doctoral program thing is a good idea.
