1. Plans for the weekend?  lots of driving surprisingly - little league(s), chaperoning a school party, a sleepover here, bil's family on Sunday (maybe)

2. What are you wearing? still in workout clothes from a.m.

3. With GH celebrating its 50th anniversary, did you or do you ever watch Soap Opera's? I never watched a soap opera, but was very much aware of the Luke & Laura drama.

Savcal, I love this:    

2. What are you wearing? -- <strong><em>undies and a sports bra. lol  Just finished my run and am cooling down before I hop in the shower.>[/quote]

Thanks for letting us know!  I got in the car too soon after exercise this morning and steamed up the windows.  The cool down is very important.

I carry my daily planner everywhere and I'm always scribbling down dates/notes in it, Lol.  DH's work phone has a digital calendar thing that he uses for meetings/appointments/etc.  He checks that against my own calendar if we have a meeting at our kids' school or something but its not necessary for me at home either.

Why is that a BAER?  My Mom couldn't afford to have things sent out, either.

I don't mind ironing but I often get behind -- especially when DS#1 was living with us.  A pile of unironed laundry stresses me out, so every few weeks I do send things out to be laundered and pressed.  The place I use does a very good job, but they are also relatively expensive.

I don't know if I'll be able to find it again, but I read something yesterday about Sheryl Sandberg of FB always leaving her house with a spiral notebook and pen to keep notes.  I was shocked and not too sure I believe that. ;)

I use an electronic calendar for appointments and things, but I also carry a pretty red moleskin notebook for ideas and lists and things.  I still enjoy the physical sensation of writing on a page from time to time.

What are school teachers considered Bord....  Cause dad was a school teacher and mom ironed all his clothes.  Did that mean he was blue collar?

No, and ironing in and of itself doesn't mean that you are white collar or blue collar.  Some people can afford to send things out and do. Some people would rather iron themselves even if they can afford to send things out.  Some would prefer to send things out, but they can't afford to.  I think that the previous poster was saying that her Mom would have liked to send things out, but on their blue collar wages, they couldn't afford to.  I know my mother would have preferred to pay someone else do her ironing.  By her own admission, she was "not domestically inclined."  I would rather do my own ironing than pay, but some days I have more money than time, so I pay somebody to catch me up.
