Weekend Plans?
Fri, 08-31-2012 - 6:32am

Whoot!!  We made it to Friday.  What's going on with y'all this weekend?

Tonight I have to work overtime.  I get off work at 4:00 and have to be back by 6:00.  We'll be there until 10:30-11:00.  This is why I hate high school football. 

The ex is keeping the kids until I get off work.  Then I'll go get them.  I'll be catching a second wind by then and likely be up for a while.  The kids have been on a huge paranormal show kick.  We have a DVR full of Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures, My Ghost Story, etc.  They will probably want to watch some of that.  Okay by me.  I like them too.

Then tomorrow morning I'll do a big breakfast with them and DD and I will be on the road by 11:00.  I went to Krogers during her softball practice last night and got all the food stuff we need: water, Gatorade, bananas, strawberries, pretzels, and beer.  The essentials for a softball road trip.  She plays at 2:00 and 5:00, about 1.5 hours away.  We have a hotel room for Saturday night.  That's where the pretzels and beer come in.  I love my softball parent friends.  We have a great time together.  Tropical Depression Isaac now needs to stay away from our ball park.

Sunday DD plays until they lose.   I hope it's at least 2 games, but it won't hurt my feelings to get home at a decent hour.  

DS will stay home with his dad.   He's not real excited about that but it is what it is.  His dad is taking him to his parent's house on Sunday for his (DS's) birthday.  The girl is elated she is missing it.   Daniel, "That's not fair.  Why does she get to miss it when I had to go to hers?"   Their dad just doesn't see that they hate going to his parent's house because they are treated liked red-headed stepchildren there.  

Sunday night is DS's birthday party.  He has 12 boys from school or the ball park coming up to our church for the night.  They have done this 3 years now.  They have the run of the gym and the Youth rooms.   They spend the night there.  I'm glad the ex is there with 13 10-year old boys and I don't have to be.  I will take DD and her quiet friend Margaret all day compared to that. Which we will do, provided we are home from softball in enough time for the girls to get together.   

Monday DS is going fishing with his friend after his slumber party.  I'll get my laundry, grocery run, and house cleaning done that day.
