Just lounging around tonight. Having a beer (or two) after quite a stressful day at work.

Saturday -- Running 20 miles in the morning, then a colleague's wedding reception in the afternoon, then probably going out with some friends.

Sunday -- probably a shorter run. Maybe going to the beer garden before warm weather ends :(

Monday -- no work! I have some things I need to do around the house. Maybe watch a movie. Probably a run. Should do some yoga. Maybe go into work for a bit.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Labor Day weekend!!!

I have my kiddos this weekend! :) Tonight we are going to watch some movies on Netflix. Tomorrow we're going to my cousin's wedding. Sunday will be church and family time. Then, I think we'll do a little shopping on Monday.

Happy Labor Day!!

It's Father's Day here tomorrow so the ex has actually cleared his schedule to have the children for all of 6 hours, even though I offered for him to have them for the weekend or at least o/n but I guess 6 hours is enough to parade around what a good father he is
So I will be going out to lunch with some friends.
Today I have to take my mother to a medical appointment as she can't drive and do the housework (boring)!

No plans tonight. I wanted to go to a zumba fundraiser event, but I was feeling too stressed to leave the house. Today was an overwhelming day, but all is better now! Thinking about doing some laundry and just playing online.

Saturday - going to a zumba event with SO, bff and her hubby. SO and I might take his aunt out looking at computers, but not sure. I'm going out to dinner with a girlfriend that I haven't seen in too many months!

Sunday - church in the morning. no plans after that besides visiting SO's parents. Maybe I'll see if his mom wants to do something.

Monday - nothing going on. the kids will be coming home that night.

I'm planned to run 18 on Sunday and I'm SO nervous! I'm training for my 3rd marathon and I haven't run that distance in almost 2 years.... I'm just gonna take it slow and one mile at a time....

Hoping to cut grass tomorrow. Possibly shaking lemonades for a friend at a local festival on Sunday.

Taking it easy on Monday. I took today off. I haven't worked a Friday since June, so I'm trying to keep the streak alive.

Tonight was a whole lot of nothing.

Saturday will be cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.

Sunday shopping for school outfits.

Monday is a picnic at my sister's. Which means Saturday will also include shopping for alcohol of some kind to get me through Monday.

When one door closes, another door opens. It's the journey through the hallway that sucks.

Had a friend over for pizza and a movie tonight; off to bed soon.

Tomorrow-- errands to run, pedicure, time for schoolwork or chores, then a big family celebration for my parents' 50th anniversary.

Sunday-- chores and schoolwork

Monday-- chores, schoolwork, possibly a little time for hanging out with a friend before it's back to school for this teacher!

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

I stayed home last night - made dinner, had some wine, and chatted with SO. Oh, and played on facebook.

Today I've already done my bike ride, and in a couple of hours, at least one of my sons and I will be meeting my sister for lunch. Then I'm headed to my mom's to take care of some stuff and take her grocery shopping.

The rest of the weekend will be doing the usual chore stuff - laundry, cleaning the kitchen, etc. Oh, and paying bills. Can't forget about that. Woohoo, so exciting.

Last night I had dinner with some very dear friends, then we went to the local Downtown Friday Night event. This is a big college town, so it was pretty 'hip'' Then I went back to their vacation home in Massachusetts with them and spent the night; it was wonderful.

This morning we walked around the area and talked for a while. Now I'm home relaxing. Tonight was supposed to be stargazing at a lake, but it's pretty cloudy & rainy, so I don't think that's going to happen.

The rest of the weekend? Who knows...

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

I dropped off DD16 on Thursday morning for a four day out of town sporting event, and I took Friday off work. That means I have the house to myself until late Sunday. There are many things I NEED to do, but absolutely nothing that I HAVE to do, and rain is preventing outside chores anyway. Thus, I am enjoying ME time (more than just a few hours), with a periodic glass of wine, for the first time in longer than I can remember! It is great!

Have a great weekend everyone!
