Weekend Plans?
Fri, 11-02-2012 - 7:15am

We made it to Friday!!   Anything going on this weekend?

Tonight is nothing.   And I need a night of nothing.   Allowing that I actually get off at 4:00 today like I am supposed to, I will have worked 47 hours this week.  I’m tired.   And my feet hurt.   I worked a middle school basketball game last night that turned out the be the world’s longest game.   They have an A and B game.   We are only supposed to work the A game and it’s supposed to start at 6:00, we get there at 5:30.   The visiting team got there around 6:00.   And then both games dragged on and on.  The refs called every nit-picky hand check foul.   And the games weren’t even close.   Both were blow outs.   The A game ended 56-16.  I got home right at 9:00.

I have had a few late calls during the week too.  Makes for a long week.

So, we are going to sit on the couch and clear out the DVR of ghost shows tonight.   I am cooking too.   That’s something I haven’t done much of this week.

Tomorrow the kids and I are going to my parent’s house to help with their leaves.   I haven’t talked to them yet, so they may have another plan.   But, they have a big yard, and 2 huge oak trees.   It’s a leaf explosion there and my dad isn’t getting any younger.   So, my plan is to go help rake.

Tomorrow afternoon we are off to a soccer game.   The high school I work in, and my alma mater, the girls’ soccer team is playing in the state championship game.   They have never been this far before.  They are awesome.   Jeff and his kids are going with us.   His DD is a great soccer player, one of the best on her club team.   She is entering a magnet program at my school next year so she can play soccer with this program.   Our plan is to go to the game and then out to eat afterwards.   We may all go back to his house and have a bonfire.   We haven’t decided that far out yet.

Sunday I plan to get back to church.   We are way out of the habit of going since the baseball/softball summer and fall.   And I guess Sunday will bring laundry, grocery run, and cleaning.   Blech!

But wait… there’s more.   I have Federal Election Day off.   So, I work Monday and then get the bonus day of Tuesday off.   DS is going to a slumber party Monday night.   DD has 6 day a week softball starting back next Monday.   She gets out at 8:00 that night.   We are going from there to a town over to go ghost hunting.   She has been dying to go for years.   There are 6 police officers going, along with a teacher and her husband.   We are doing an abandoned old jail and adjoining cemetery.

Tuesday we are sleeping in and doing as little as possible.

Finally.... I am finally authorized to post...LOL  Don't know why I had that problem all of a sudden... weird!

I had a really busy week-end... Friday evening, I watched the kids... and then Saturday morning we had family breakfast then came home and cleaned my house.  Saturday around 5:00, my hubby's side of the family came over to celebrate my FIL's 85th birthday.  His birthday is next week-end but we knew his family would want to do something with him that week-end so we did ours early.  The last family left at 12:30 am... 11:30 pm if you factor in the time change... and of course, that is the family with 4 kids under the age of 8! 

Not sure who did it but one of the 6 kids that were here found a black permanent marker and "colored" all over my bathroom door... the inside of it thank goodness... but, I wasn't real happy.  Of course, that kid could have been Luke so I am not going to be too upset... just gives me a good reason to paint my bathroom.  My kids and hubby have never liked the colors I painted it anyway... it was my first complete project after I went through chemotherapy so I was kind of proud of it but I do agree that the colors are dark.  Anyway...

Sunday was church and then we went to Mary & Danny's house for football.... it was a bit strange because Mary wasn't there... she was visiting her son, Jason, in Chicago.  But, we had a good time anyway.  Then we came home around 6:00 and I was so tired (had been all day) that I went to bed...  but the bad part is I woke up at 3:00 am!  Oh well... I guess I will sleep good tonight too.
