Busy Weekend

I think I am one of those people that has to be busy at all times. I don’t enjoy it, at least I don’t think so, but when I am not busy I get sort of anxious and walk around in circles a lot. This weekend is the weekend before production week for the show my son is in. Production week is always crazy and often filled with late nights, bad eating and short fuses. It’s chaos, but fun chaos.

This weekend, we also have Cub Scout graduation (my son is going into Webelos II) and then for Father’s Day, the kids and I are heading to Carpinteria for a picnic on the beach. That means I have to go shopping for all the yummy stuff we want to bring.. and then somewhere in there, my son wants to take my husband to see that Zohan movie. I know (groan). My husband loves stupid movies and his collection of them is quite vast.

Right now I am about to meet someone for lunch so I am looking forward to some good book/girl talk. Hopefully the work day will fly by for me after that. You think?

Saturday Stuff: Movie Fun

My daughter and I went to an early showing of Kung Fu Panda. It was really good. The special effects were awesome. My son and I were supposed to see Wicked but he got grounded so our plans changed. He was not happy to have missed out on a movie either but that’s how the ball bounces! Maybe, if he is really good.. I will try to take him in July. That will give me time to read the book as the show was based on the novel.

In a couple of weeks, my son is in a production of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I am in charge of props and so I have been running around trying to gather up what we need. Whatever we don’t find we need to rent. It’s a lot of fun, but as production week approaches, things get a little bit crazy.

Sunday we may sign-up at the local community pool but not much else. Gas is too expensive to really drive anywhere and really, who wants to anyway?

Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday.
