There are many ways to spend a Saturday. Whether its cleaning out the garage, going for a round of golf or perhaps heading to the mall, there are the adult ways to spend the day and then, there are the little kid ways to spend the day. Plump up the pillows, turn on the TV and watch your fave cartoons

After sleeping in and cuddling with LF, we enjoyed a white sausage and egg breakfast and then I started with some healthy cooking as I have got Quaker Oat bread in the oven rising.

How are you spending your Saturday?

Crashed on the couch in my jammies, QS next to me, (he's surfing Instagram) jamming out to music, doing some online shopping, and trying to talk myself out of buying another Christmas album.

No breakfast. Just a massive mug of coffee in an ugly blue mug.

We're eventually going to get dressed and go to a craft fair and take the kids to see Santa. Maybe. If we find the courage to leave the safety of the warm house.

I'm sitting at the shop waiting on getting my emissions checked (overdue) and oil changed (even more overdue). Then I have to get the registration done.

This afternoon we are going to get the tree and tomorrow we are having a decorating party.

And tonight I am thinking about taking the kids to see A Christmas Carol at the local theater and community center.

It's so damned cold here outside Chicago that I don't want to go do anything. Just sit around and drink coffee and be warm.

Working until 2 then going to dinner with a few favorite people.

I don't know HOW I am supposed to stay controlled in my diet when all we do is go out and meet friends and family for food and drink.

I went to the gym and walmart, then took the dog to the vet. Not a lazy or cheap morning for me.

This afternoon, I'm doing a holiday house tour with a girlfriend- that part of the day is just for ME!

I'm in my cozy clothes. I have laundry going, the house is in mid clean mode (so a disaster). I've walked the dog, checked in at S.I., did some budgeting and, and texted with my sister. This afternoon I am making baked potato soup, walking the dog again and more cleaning. I am thinking there is a nap in there somewhere too

I'm watching the cats play fight, pretending they're WWE wrestlers and being the commentator to the main event.

OWWW, that had to hurt! Pounce from the ottoman right on his head!

Max seems to be trying to perform the rare, and illegal back legs to the head maneuver!

She's got a catnip mouse! It's pandemonium!

Is he chasing his own tail?

She's got him cornered by the ficus..where are the referees?


I obviously win the "who can best avoid not cleaning house today" award.

Cat wrestling. It's more important than a clean house.

I love this. That's what my house is, perpetually. Never filthy, hardly ever spotless. Always, and forever, about a solid hour and a half away from being clean.

Sigh. I'm researching for a paper I have to write this weekend for a class. Nearly done with the research. Planning to let it all percolate in my brain (otherwise known as procrastination) while I go do some Christmas shopping for the Adopt-a-family program at our local shelter. Also need to buy some groceries as the cupboard is bare! Laundry and maybe some other chores in there. Happy weekend everyone!

Yes!!

Or in my case, I work like mad and the upper level is sparkling clean. By the time I get to the downstairs level and get it in top shape, it's time to do the upstairs again. It's a never ending loop and I have surrendered

yes! it's like they (the heathens that live here) KNOW that I've cleaned, and like a moth to a flame, have to go and muss it up.

I don't think the whole house has been clean at the same time since we did a refi a while back. There was a lot of threatening and sending them out of the house for long periods in order to keep it that way for 12 hours.

Just ordered my last gift for FWH, (While he is out picking up DS and getting us something to eat.), checking out what everyone is doing on F&G on SI while I'm supposed to be finishing decorating the tree!

My family is right every year they tease me about how long it takes me to decorate the tree....and they're right! I started on Monday. But when I'm done it's a damn good looking tree!

Later tonight we're going to see a tribute band, Beatlemania!! Can't wait!

I am just waking up from a nice nap and pondering how to fold laundry while the kids are awake (since I slept while they did today). We spent this morning at the church decorating a gingerbread house. And this evening, we will load up, get designer coffee (hot chocolate for the kids) and drive through the local college campus, listening to Christmas music and ooohing and aaaaaahing over 40,000+ luminarias.

I suppose I didn't waste the morning but will idle away the rest of afternoon/evening...
went running at 5am because I couldn't sleep, spent 4 hours at a discovery workshop about becoming a licensed massage therapist...something I've been interested in doing after I retire from current career in 5 years. And then had a nice lengthy lunch with a girlfriend. Its dark outside already so I'm surfing SI, will do some online shopping, and then a nice hot shower later. (I long for a bath but the bathtub thingy broke years ago and it's not fixable without replacing the whole tub/drainage pipes)

Went to Barnes and Noble and bought books and sat in Cafe.

I spent much of the morning being lazy in bed, then dragged myself to Home Depot to buy paint and a curtain rod, and then prepped, taped, and painted the kids' bath after having repaired (again!) the pulled-from-the-wall towel rack last weekend. First coat is on and drying and I will do the second coat after the kids go to bed -- or maybe tomorrow. Soon it will be time to get the kids from their dad, and then we will have dinner and play some games or something, then tomorrow we will put up the Christmas tree and maybe make some cookies. Ooh, I should prep the dough...

Well we didn't go to the musical because when they were trying to do a simple tire rotation, I learned that the lugs on one of the wheels were totally stripped, two of them broke off and had to be replaced and the calipers were rusted solid. The mechanics were able to get it all fixed but of course it cost more than I expected.

And I failed emissions because the battery was disconnected during the body work I had last week. (I didn't post about it but I got up close and personal with a deer on the interstate at 80 MPH). So now I have to drive it for a while to let everythign reset before I get it re-inspected for another $25.

ETA: But we got the tree!
