…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!
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!
