1. Getting Joel out of the house today since he has been cooped up for weeks. Not sure where we're going, but we are. This evening, we are gathering at my Mom's for Mother's Day. Tomorrow I will be in the office. Might take Joel with me. Not sure yet. 2. People who don't know how to (or just don't) merge properly on the highway. 3. Tazo Passion

I'm at my professional conference/end of semester party. Seeing old friends, intellectual stimulation, a hundred publishing houses plugging their new lists at substantial discounts, good restaurants, high-achieving students making good contacts, all is well with the world. Only thing that irritates me is a speaker who doesn't understand the concept of a twenty minute paper so drones on for thirty-five minutes. I don't drink a lt of hot tea, but I like it. I'm not particular.

I try to avoid all grocery stores, malls, ect on Saturdays b/c I hate the crowds. :) Hit Target & the grocery store this afternoon, so I'm good to go for the wknd...

Yeah but it all depends on the store and time. Walmart is a mess on the weekends during the day. If you go early or at dinner time, you are fine. I find the grocery store is not too bad, especially at certain times of the day.

1. Last day of the sewing expo tomorrow and also have to get the lawn mowed.  I may be ponying up some big bucks for a new sewing machine.  But either way, I have a Bring Your Own Machine quilting class tomorrow that I'm looking forward to.  Sunday is a big family Mother's Day at the son and DIL's house; I'm bringing a strawberry walnut salad.

2. Dude, I've been in quilting and sewing heaven the past two days.  NOTHING is bothering me.

3.  I like Constant Comment Orange spice.  It brews into a really nice iced tea, too.

Shopping for a dress, maybe the grocery store, dog park if it's nice, church.  Being put on hold and waiting forever, this happened two times today with two separate places I called.  I don't drink hot tea. 

Happy Mother's Day to you too!

1. Weekend Plans?  I posted that in another thread

2. One pet peeve that is annoying you or has annoyed you today?  I can't stand screaming kids either.  I told my children they should not be screaming unless it's an emergency--which meant blood all over the place or some adult trying to harm you.

Another one is teachers who don't do everything they are supposed to do on an IEP & you give it back to them with a list of what's wrong.  You don't come back to their school for a week & when you do, they are confused and didn't even think they had the file, then find it on their own desk and they realize they never read your note.  Or your email.  

3. If you drink hot tea, what is your favorite?I don't drink tea.

I do my grocery shopping on Sunday morning when all the non-heathens (like yourself) are in church.

I am an early riser so I do my grocery shopping early Saturday morning.   If I have other plans on Saturday morning  then early Sunday morning.  But never later in the day on Sunday.  I find that to be the busiest time.   If I can't get it done early to beat the crowds  then I will hold off until Monday evening.

That was one thing I gave up when I went back to work, the opion of doing my shopping during the middle of the day when the stores are generally fairly empty.

<<With food shopping? No, it is just something I do on the weekends <<

Oh okay, I just wondered because you always list it under your plans for the weekend and I never think of it in that way.  Thanks.
