Is It Friday Already?

My, how time has flown this week, my first week home and back to real life in all its general glory.

I feel extremely lucky that (1) the weather since we returned has been unseasonably mild, most likely thanks to the effects of global warming that will eventually result in the early demise of our planet, but which for now I'm rather enjoying; (2) nothing devastating happened to anyone or anything I left behind, proving once again that although I might think I'm indispensible, I'm really not; and (3) life is actually rather quiet at the moment, and I can gently ease myself back into all my various roles and resposibilities.

So I managed to cross a number of things off my to-do list this week -and all you other list makers out there certainly know what a relief that is. I've yet to do a complete shop - grocery and sundry shopping, that is, but I suspect I'll complete that chore over the weekend.

And speaking of the weekend - I have NO plans. Zip. Nada. If I were in my twenties (or even my thirties) that would be a tragedy of the utmost magnitude. But since I'm practically in my dotage, it's absolutely marvelous.

I'll probably delve into one of those bookstacks I have lying around here. I've signed up for a reading challenge, which you can read more about here. And isn't that just what I need -another reason to read :)

I been thinking about going to the movies -in a real theater, even. Usually I just wait for the DVD, especially now that we have our lovely 47 inch high def flat screen and comfy leather sofa.
On second thought, I'll just wait for the DVD, so I can stay home and wear my jammies.

I'm ready for the weekend.

How about you? What big plans do you have for the weekend?

You are the second person I've encountered this week that wrote about their new "47 inch flat screen" on their blog. But the other person didn't mention anything about a comfy leather sofa, and I won't even speculate on their jammies. I am very jealous. Very!

I love no worry weekends. We are doing the movie night ritual and just kicking back. I just finished "The Time Traveler's Wife." I need stronger glasses. ;)

What a great feeling to cross out things on your " to-do list". My week-end is soooooo exciting.... watching my WSU Cougs play UCLA ( they lost), go to town to grocery shop, now sitting and watching my other favorite team.. the Gonzaga Bulldogs. I only watch two teams. They both happen to be playing today. I have also squeezed in a little cleaning, writing, blogging, and bill paying. I have a few things to cross off my list also!

Well, the PLAN was to finally pack away the Christmas ornaments (we were away, then I was sick, and then I needed new boxes) but what happened was a trip to Target to "look at gym equipment" that wound up with a full cart!

Nearing your dotage?!? LOL!! When exactly do we hit that magic mark of "dotage"!?!?!

No plans for me either...did son's hockey game yesterday, did some blogging (i.e. catching up with reading), did a book review (didn't like the book...huge pan!) and today I think I shall work on some art. The weather is dismal so I'm looking for something to perk me up!!
