Plans for the Holiday Weekend?
Tue, 05-24-2005 - 9:12am

Hey All!!

I'm looking forward to a nice loooooooong weekend. So I'm just curious...what are you going to do this Memorial Day Weekend??

We are planning to stay around home, we'd love to go to the lake, but the Holidays are the worst times and it's like Metro traffic (on a 2 lane road :() so we're going to stick around home, and puppy sit. Then we'll have the neighbors over for a picnic and fire on Sunday, but I'll avoid the fire due to this nasty sinusitis (sinus infection) that I have going on!!

I think I'm going to get flowers and plant and maybe some shrubs. I can't wait, it sounds like soooo much fun! But I'm sitting here waiting for inspiration! Can't wait to hear what you're up too...

DH is going camping with some buddies and DS and I will hang out at home and have some family over and I'll grill some steaks! ;-) We get ready to leave for vacation next Wednesday - yay!

My honey-do list is a mile long...

Lets see

Friday, hubby is picking me up after work (he's off work) and we are going out to the movies (Star Wars III...whoo hooo) and to dinner.

Saturday, yard sale (weather permitting), then a trip to the Goodwill with everything we couldn't sell. Then on to Lowe's for deck stain, patio bricks, mulch, potting soil. Powerwash back side of house and deck. Rent a movie and chill.

Sunday, mow, clean grill, go to grocery store, have a cookout with some neighbors. Rest a little.

Monday, stain deck, plant my plants and put down the mulch, and start on brick patio.

Sound like I have enough planned to do? Hubby is ready to cry now and ask to work extra this weekend. We never have time to do home improvement stuff, and I have some money in the bank and time to do it, we are getting it done! Wish me luck!

I'm going to spend Friday night at my mom's, then some friends of mine, my sister, and maybe my mom are going to a Ren Faire on Saturday. Monday is a church-sponsored picnic.
Have fun everybody!

We probably won't do a lot this weekend, we don't drive on busy holidays like this one!

DH is off Friday, but he'll sleep most of the day since he'll have worked the night before, but knowing him he'll be up sooner than he needs to be, b/c if the weather is good, he'll want to get caught up on his side work.
