The Week Ahead: September 22-28, 2008

Here’s to another week of happiness! Yeah, right. A bit too pollyanna(ish) for me but might as well start off on a happy note, right? I am enjoying these “week ahead” posts because they really do keep me in check as far as commitments and what’s coming up, but MAN, they seem to make me more aware that the days are just whizzing by.

Here is what I have coming up this week:

Monday, September 22, 2008 – Announcing the winner of my Greasy Rider giveaway today. Yoga class as noon (Ommmmm). I have parent/teacher conferences today so I will be leaving work early for them. I also have a PTO board meeting tonight so my husband has to run my son to rehearsal.

Tuesday, September 23, 2008 – It’s time for the school’s book fair. We do ours through Mrs. Nelson’s and the kids always look forward to it. I’m posting my review of The Necklace later this morning. Also have to teach a class this morning.

Wednesday, September 24, 2008 – I have a guest post up today over at She Is Too Fond Of Books. It’s part of Dawn’s “Spotlight on Bookstores” series. Be sure to check it out! Yoga at noon. Today Book Club Girl is hosting a radio blog show for Run. Check out the details here. Auditions for The Music Man tonight. Wish my kid luck! Tonight is also the season premier of Lipstick Jungle. I don’t follow too many shows on TV but I LOVE Lipstick Jungle. I have to record it though since I will be at auditions.

Thursday, September 25, 2008Everyday I Write The Book is hosting an online book club for Run. For more info on the online book club click here. Teaching a new class today. Should be interesting. I do technical training sometimes and new classes are always a challenge. I never know what is going to happen with the application or the participants.

Friday, September 26, 2008 – Doing the Happy Dance! Going to lunch with a co-worker friend today. Yay!

The Weekend – It’s the beginning of Fall Break for the kids. They get a week off from school but of course my husband and I don’t so they will be going to daycare along with all the other kids that aren’t taking a trip somewhere. Last year we went to Disney World so this year we are staying in town.

Have a good week!

Oh, To Be A Kid Again!

On my way to work this morning, I stopped off at the local 24hr Super Walmart and picked up the bike my daughter wants for her bday. I know people have their views on Walmart, but I love that this one is 24hrs and the inventory clerk that helped me put the bike together for me (because I neglected to check if they had it there beforehand) in 20 min! Tried to tip him but he wouldn’t take it. Against the rules, blah blah.

Anyway, as I was checking out the toy shelves at 6:15am, I came across this new game. I LOVED Twister as a kid and this looks like so much fun! Check out the video here. I think I have to have it! I mean, I think my DAUGHTER has to have it.

Nothing like starting off your Friday as the toy store. Oh, the memories… What do you all have planned for the weekend? I am actually staying home to catch-up on stuff. My son has a book report due where he needs to re-enact all the key plot points and take pictures for a special display board. He read a Sherlock Holmes novel, Fall of the Amazing Zalindas, so all the pics have to do with tightrope walking, circus stuff and I get to dress up like a gypsy. We started taking the pics yesterday. Hope to finish the rest this weekend.

We are also running lines and practicing songs for The Music Man. Auditions are Wednesday. Crossing my fingers for him.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
