What's everyone up to?

I'm relaxing tonight with a couple of beers (here's to you, PR and Coraline ) and my new addiction: candy crush.

Tomorrow getting a sort of long run in. I'm going to a wedding and reception in the evening. Kind of excited about it .

Sunday is a long run and then whatever strikes my fancy until I can go rescue Teslet from the bowels of chaos.

Longest class I've ever taken... 6-10pm on Friday nights. (two more weeks after this one)

Tomorrow is our big final presentation in another class; Sunday will be spent studying for the final in my Monday class.

The end is close.

I'm hoping to paint my outdoor steps. Just need some dry weather!

hanging out at home, drinking wine and multitasking on the computer - chatting with SO, checking out SI and fb, and playing solitaire. oh, what an exciting life I have.

tomorrow I plan on a bike ride early in the morning, before it becomes too scorching outside, then chores and errands. I'm guessing there's a nap in there somewhere too.

Sunday, maybe another bike ride, depending on how certain parts of my anatomy feel, or I'll decide to sleep in and by 8 AM it'll be too hot out for a ride.

Tonight... slug night. Didn't do much, but I went into work several days this week to get curriculum work done and to get my room ready, so I figured I deserved some slug time.

Tomorrow... unslugging myself. Laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, and then my kids will be home for dinner after being away with XWH and the Ofamily for a week! Yay! There will be much hugging, kissing, and snuggling.

Sunday... other than cutting the lawn, no plans except to relax with my kids and spend time with them.

Unpacking most of the day, then I went to a nature preserve tonight to watch meteors--unfortunately, none appeared and it got cloudy, but we took a (very dark) night hike down to a lake. I met some nice people.

Tomorrow I have two young men coming to help me move my furniture out of the pod, so I'm getting up early to make macaroni sauce as part of their payment.

Sunday will be more unpacking and preparing for my first day on my new job on Monday!

Hi tesla! Thanks for starting the thread this weekend.

I had a stressful day with the legal beagle going over estate/trust/tax issues. I hope to hell I don't have to survive an IRS audit over my parent's stuff, but it's very possible. God help me if I do.....

But, the day ended with dinner on the porch watching the end of a gorgeous Colorado evening. Sunset with mountain in background, hummingbirds mobbing the feeders, peace and quiet with me, the Bear, and my mom.

Tomorrow I'm going to start diving into 12 years of my parent's tax returns and getting my ducks in a row (just in case). Ugh. After a few hours of that, I plan on taking a motorcycle ride to blast the cobwebs out of my brain - but I'm gonna ride shotgun behind the Bear and give him snuggles while we're at it.

Other than that....taking care of mom and catching up on some of the stuff I need to do around my place. Sunday maybe another hour or so on the bike? I hope so!

Mom is okay here alone for a few hours during the day, but I'm still too paranoid to leave her alone for long until I see that she can run the microwave on her own.

Life is finally settling down a bit, but I've got a ways to go before I can truly relax. The whole thing with the trust/IRS totally blindsided me.

Sometimes the hardest part of finally seeing through someone is accepting what you see...

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to
change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

I took off yesterday and went to see Fallingwater with my mom. Very cool.

Today, I'm going to try to cut my grass while going to my nephew's birthday party. Also make an appearance at my brother' birthday party.

Tomorrow, I have to go to a local festival to help shake lemonades for a friend. I'm kinda looking forward to going back to work on Monday.

Sorting, and packing up stuff in my garage. Mowing the lawn and a nap or three are planned.

Maybe I'll celebrate with a long tub soak and some candles. Right now I think I hear my pillow calling my name.

Last night -- beer while watching some "Arrested Development" -- I've been rationing these new episodes and only have one left now!

Today -- Just finished a long run, and I'm volunteering this afternoon at a triathlon.

Tomorrow -- short run, cheering my friend on at a tri, and then my parents are coming up to help me do things around my house and then go to dinner together.

I went to my CrossFit gym on Firday evening. No kids for me this weekend. I did some yard work and then relaxed on the couch with a glass of wine.

Saturday - CrossFit workout in the morning. More yard work and maybe a trip to the outlets (yup I'm a guy who likes to shop). Saturday night no plans for me yet.

Oh yeah - my game addiction, plants vs zombies.

Friday night - Ordered pizza while the kids played video games. After dinner, I completed my Kohl's order (30% off!!) and then played Lego with the boys. It was fun.

Saturday - not doing much today. Called my mom to set up babysitting for next week. Called my aunt and she's watching the boys for the first time while I go to the dentist... =\ I don't have any plans for today besides hang out with the boys. SO will be home later, maybe we'll play a game together or go do something.

Sunday - going to church with future MIL. We usually hang out with her afterward. No set plans.

pretty boring weekend for me. I'm hoping to get some organizing done (I tend to create piles of paper) and some more laundry too.

Failure is success if we learn from it.

Last night I had a couple beers and cleaned the kitchen up after I did a few projects and made a huge mess. I also filled out a couple pages in my "Do List" binder of shit I gotta get done before (cue ominous music) "The Patriarch" returns.

The Patriarch is the 81-year old owner of the chateau I live in. I'm the caretaker of this place. He lives out of state and comes each fall for vintage (chateau being a most ridiculous term for a rectangular concrete building with zero style). The chateau comes with 18 acres of wine grapes, and it sits atop a wine cellar. The Pinot Noir is ripening so he will be back.

I pretty much hate it when he is here. I have two rooms to myself but we share the common areas including the kitchen. He cannot tolerate anything changing without having a hissy fit. I am guaranteed that within 24 hours of his arrival he will have expressed displeasure for no less than 3 things I put a lot of time and energy into to make this place BETTER. Dude, everything is rotting and falling apart. Yes, things are different after they are repaired and improved. Just because you don't notice decay doesn't mean fixing it is a major change!

Anyway, my goal for the weekend is to finish 3 or 4 projects I have that are close to done, and to clean up and put away after so I can mark them off my list.

I'm also going over to my sisters for a party. She has her birthday in February and hates trying to celebrate it at that time of year with crappy weather, short days, etc. So she celebrates her Half-Birthday in August. Smart girl.

I am going to avoid getting in too deep with my sudoku addiction, although I'm sure I will fit in a puzzle or two.

FBW then 46, XWHNPDPAFTG the destroyer of my entire life. D-Day 1 '99, D-Day 2,3,4,5,6... '09-'11, D '15. I fell apart. I put myself back together. Forgiveness isn't required. I'm happy and healthy now, and MY new life is good.

I guess I can post here now.

Last night, dinner with DD and then darts and pool. Then I hooked up with a group of friends at a Karaoke Bar then went to someone's house to play cards.

Today, I am preparing our Annual Report for our Annual Meeting at 4. Going to Costco to do a shop for said meeting and our annual volunteer mahalo party. Then I'm setting up the party, working the party and helping clean up after the party.

Tomorrow morning is a debauchery boat cruise with friends to say goodbye to my best friend here before she leaves for the mainland.

Somewhere in there I have to get my clothes out of the house and get settled into the apartment. Probably going to have to get another bed for DD too. The studio is small so we'll be bunking in a couple of twins for a bit.

Scary, sad, stressful but still exciting.

Ama, what insane school has classes on a Friday night?? Seriously.... Glad it'll be over soon.

This is my first weekend of being 60 years old. (How did that happen exactly?) I'm quite content just hanging out alone and contemplating what I want to do for the next decade.

We're having clouds and showers, so last night I took advantage of the warm breezes and the last of the sunshine, treated myself to a patio supper at my favourite resto bar downtown on the harbour.

They make the most insanely delicious snapper and chips and I had them give me a modified sangria -- I prefer it made with lemonade instead of orange/cranberry -- had a couple of those and was a happy camper basking in the warm sunset and watching the tourist movie go by and all the boat action (whale watching zodiacs and little harbour ferries zipping in and out, the big boat coming and going, the night market, everyone eating ice cream and enjoying the vibe).

I worked some of that off on the ride home.

Going to tidy up a bit, hose down the dust bunnies and do some laundry. Have a juicy trash novel to dive into and an overage of desserts from miscellaneous birthday stuff that happened during the week -- of course the Birthday Person is the one who has to take home the leftovers...

Will be having more sangria tonight and catching up on some TV/Netflix.

Might get out at some point and go to the guitar shop. I'm craving a new nylon-string baby to add to my collection and dammit I'm worth it.

Saturday night plans changed. Now staying home with DD, she didn't want to stay at her mom's OR her mom wants to go out partying. You decide which statement is correct.

Anyways she knew I would be home with nothing going on. So I'll be hanging out watching some cool 8 year old show with my best girl.
