I have no plans. Teslet is with ex-shat. I don't have any paperwork to catch up on. No pressing things that must be done.
I'm a big fan of doing nothing for two days...maybe get the garden planted. Gonna watch some TV...haven't done that in ages!
What's everyone else up to?

Re-bleaching my basement, making a run to the dump with all the stuff the flood ruined, and potentially helping my sister move.
Oh, and spending every spare second outside. Spring is finally here!

Trying to catch up on sleep. I also might go out for a nice long hike with the dogs if it isn't too hot.

Meeting up with friends for "Nerd Night Happy Hour" later. THAT should be interesting.
Cleaning tomorrow morning/afternoon and then going out for dinner with some girlfriends tomorrow night.
Then my usual church, WW weigh-in, Y class then Bloody Mary Sunday.
Hoping to catch some of the NFL draft along the way.
Have fun everyone!

Supper with some friends tonight, then nothing.

Beverage night with some friends from work tonight. Watching my grandsons play soccer tomorrow. Yard work on Sunday, if it dries out enough.
Glad the weekend is finally here!

Nothing planned. Might just go for a bike ride because the snow has finally melted off of the bike trail around town. 65 degrees today! I had a snow day from work last Friday - 18 inches of snow. Un-fricking-believeable!
(edited to say, if the bike trail is not flooded)

No plans tonight. No kids and SO is working. I need to stop finding myself with absolutely no plans. That's usually when I eat junk and drink too much pop! Maybe I'll roam out to the store for a bit.
Saturday, going to see a movie with a girlfriend, then church afterward. Dinner with SO and I don't know what else.
Sunday, catechism class. It's the last week. I've enjoyed teaching the kids, but looking forward to having less commitments over the summer. Maybe I'll do some spring cleaning in the boys' room before they get home. Clear out winter clothes that will be/are too small for DS5. See how much clothes DS6.5 has for summer.
happiness is a direction, not a place.

TV catchup tonight... giving myself a manicure... I've fully accepted that I'm no better than a deflated balloon on Friday nights and try not to make any plans! I did get the lawn mowed and a big chunk of yard work done today, so I'm not a total slug.
Saturday-- errands, early Mother's Day lunch with my mom, then hanging out with my parents (kiddies are with STBX this weekend). Probably should grade some papers as well. I need a smiley that shows a "bleah" face for that.
Sunday-- grocery shopping and house cleaning.
I also intend to be outside as much as possible this weekend because it is supposed to be beautiful! Yay! Been waiting all winter for this.
Happy weekend, folks.

I have my kiddos this weekend. Tonight they are having friends over to spend the night, so I may try to catch up on some tv.
Tomorrow is a little cleaning, laundry, and grocery shopping. I think we may go see a movie tomorrow afternoon. And maybe dinner out. :)
Sunday is the usual. Church, lunch with family, and hanging out around the house.

Intentional low-key weekend here.
Tonight I will just hang out -- probably knit or paint while watching TV, and get a few more chapters read in my book.
Saturday I have a short run, and no plans for the rest of the day! Which means cleaning, grocery shopping, packing, and just not being stressed (which I need after this month at work!)
Sunday I have a race in the morning and then I'm meeting a friend for dinner (half off bottles of wine!)
Should be another good one!

I have the kiddos this weekend! But older two are busy with their friends, and will be gone most of the time.
Hanging out with DS11 tonight, got a lasagna in the oven i made and froze several weeks ago.
Short run in the morning, and then I'm taking DS11 and some of his school friends out to launch his rocket we made two weekends ago. Finally no 20mph winds to deal with! Then church and whatever we decide after that.
Sunday is my last long-ish run before my marathon next weekend. Probably do some yard work and try and fix the bottom panel on my garage door.

Saturday is softball and baseball games and then DS's First Communion in the evening. SO not looking forward to that, WH will be there in the pew with me and the kids and I'll have to make nice and polite and smile and nod when all I want to do is send my fist through his crap lousy face. And then I just know the kids are going to make a big deal that I am taking them out to dinner after and he will try to come and I will be the bad guy saying no bc I really just can't handle it. Then I will come home and have a drink. Or three.
No real plans on Sunday. DD has a Girl Scouts outing but she is sleeping over the leaders house Saturday night so I don't have to do anything. We will see if WS actually takes the kids. I have a baby shower but I don't know if I'm up to all the happy happy joy joy wonderful family stuff. I might just send a gift and bail.
At least the weather is going to be beautiful, maybe I will go for a run outside as opposed to my treadmill.

Oh, they don't get much more exciting than this! Took myself out to dinner at a new place for me; had seared ahi, grilled vegies and a glass of cabernet. Sat on the patio--it was a beautiful night. Now I'm eating gelato out of the carton
Tomorrow morning is Body Pump; then I'm buying a new purse strap!
Sunday will probably be the beach.
I like this kind of weekend (it's pretty much the only kind I have )
I promise to surround myself with amazing souls and love them fiercely.

Catching up on housework and boring stuff this morning, going out to dinner tonight with some friends and tomorrow not sure yet, might head out somewhere with the kids or do as little as possible depending on the weather

Tonight was my usual - takeout and the couch.
Tomorrow I have a bunch of running around to do to get ready for my niece's baby shower on Sunday.
Sunday is the baby shower.
Sometime this weekend I also need to check papers, tests, and do lesson plans for the coming week.
Williesmom, there are a few cultural things in the city I would love to do this weekend, but this shower is taking up so much of my time. Oh the things a new little member of the family needs!

SIA, you know I love cab on the patio. will be that season here soon.
In the meantime it's 10 days of penicillin and painkillers and drooling on my pillow while my screw heals up.
(Wait, that sounded kinkier than intended...).

Tomorrow is cleaning, grocery shopping and maybe swimming with the girl bananas.
Sunday is a Zumbathon - two hours of sweat and fun to raise money for The American Cancer Society.
