If Every Day Could Be Friday…

…I would be so darn happy. Yes, it’s a work day, but the anticipation of the weekend makes the day tolerable and might I add, somewhat enjoyable. I nearly always have a social lunch with my co-workers, which often includes gossip (if there is any to be had), and great food and laughter. Today, we have yet to decide on a restaurant but whatever we choose will be perfect.

Tomorrow, The Girl has volleyball and then we may tackle the floors that we’ve been working on. Some sanding was accomplished last week, but more sanding has to take place before we can apply the concrete stain and as you know, sanding is messy, messy work! It gets everywhere!! Just an hour of it last weekend left everything covered in a fine dust, including the Otter Pup! She was a dusty little thing.

Sunday, we are taking The Hub out for a birthday brunch. We like to go here. It backs to the airport and the kids and Hub, love to watch the planes take off. Of course, the food is good too and they cater to kids so the buffet has all sorts of yummy stuff (crab, roast beef, eggs benedict) but it also has corn dogs, tater tots and other kid stuff. Oh, and the dessert table is fabulous! Buffets are a challenge for me as there is hidden gluten in everything so I will be armed with Benadryl and my inhaler!

The Avengers

After brunch, we are seeing The Avengers! I reserved our seats so we don’t have to deal with long lines. Should be fun. We hardly ever see movies in the theater anymore because I hate the crowds. I will suck it up for The Hub’s birthday though and it will be nice to see a movie before it comes out on DVD.

What am I reading? As usual, a ton of stuff. The book I am most excited about right now, that I actually have in my hands, is The Age of Miracles. I am going to start it this weekend. I wanted to start it right when I got it but the conditions weren’t right. You know how that works. Laundry was staring at me and homework needed to be done. I can’t read when that stuff is looming over me like a dark cloud. I am almost done with Swamplandia! Hmmm, I hope that it ends on a high note because right now, it’s dragging. I’ve got some other books going between Net Galley and Edelweiss. I need an app to remind me of the publication dates of these books. Sometimes I jump into a galley only to realize that it doesn’t come out for 3-4 months, which means that I can’t review it for awhile. I hate when I do that. I mean, I can write it up, but I hate to schedule posts so far in advance.

One more thing… The Boy interviewed for, and made… ASB (associated student body) for high school!! I am not ready for him to be in high school but I hope to adjust soon.

Okay, enough from me. Happy Friday!

  1. I wish I understood how to invent an app because I would totally invent your idea (and give you full credit) I never remember publication dates and either have to remember way back when I read a book or rush through it because I waited so long.

    Good luck with your sanding this weekend. My fingers are crossed for poor dusty Otter Pup.

  2. I can’t wait to talk to you about The Age of Miracles – I finished yesterday! And Swamplandia too! Let me know when you’re done with The Age of Miracles!

    • I will let you know. I am holding off on starting it since my tour stop is not until June 12th. But, I am on the last few pages of Swamplandia.

  3. Sounds like another busy weekend, but fun. Enjoy

  4. Sounds like a great weekend. I love a good brunch.

    And I can’t wait to see The Avengers! I love Robert Downey Jr. :)

  5. It sounds like a full and fun week end!

  6. I have been dragging my but today Ti! Just wait til the Boy gets married! That is what I have to deal with in less than 2 months! Oh my goodness….Have a great weekend with your family!

    • At the rate this kid is going, it will be awhile. He has lots of friends that are girls but he ends up getting slapped by them in quite the dramatic fashion, I might add!

  7. Well I can’t say that Swamplandia ends high, but higher than where it has been. Eeegads. I don’t know if we will see The Avengers or not…but I’d go just to see Thor’s abs.

  8. I kind of really want to see The Avengers. Yay for The Boy. And I’ve been hearing all kinds of not so good things about Swamplandia. I’m not sure I’m even going to try it.

  9. I love Friday’s too for pretty much the same reason! Just knowing the weekend is around the corner makes Friday so much easier to get through. Sounds like you have some good plans for Saturday and Sunday. Let me know when you make that app, as I could use it too!

  10. I have to see The Avengers today too, LOL. It’s my husband’s thing, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. I hope it isn’t too crowded!

  11. But if every day was Friday, we’d never get to Saturday! And I pretty much live for Saturdays. And Sundays.

  12. Happy birthday to your husband!

  13. Better late than never right…. I already know you enjoyed the movie (fb update) but this post has been open on my work laptop for over a day. :)

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  14. I loved NetGalley and Edelweiss, but also, like you, have a hard time coordinating my reading around dates. SOunds like you have a busy but fun weekend.

  15. I hope your hub enjoyed his birthday, and I look forward to seeing your review of Age of Miracles. I finished, reviewed, and scheduled that one a few weeks ago, and hate not having anyone with whom to discuss it. Another drawback of early review copies. But feel free to review The Avengers–my hub wants to see it and I’m not sure yet if I want to see it with him or skip it! Would love to hear your thoughts. :-)

  16. I am also listening to Swamplandia, and not quite getting the appeal. It’s very strange, and I can only forsee uncomfortable things happening. I hope the birthday outing was a success, and wanted to extend my congratulations to the boy as well!

    • You just reminded me that I totally forgot to write-up the review for Swamplandia! I can see why there was no Pulitzer winner ;)
