    Recover from NDC Economic Development class this week.

    Recover from gig (just got home, 6 am)

    Get some sleep

    BBQ at Moms

    Look at pool and sigh (water down to 65)

    Oh, and go to one of my employee's 10 year old daughter's funeral. How can you ever deal with that?

    Today:

    RJ pressure-washed one side of the house (3 hrs) and I weeded for about an hour, all in 90 d. heat. Then we crashed by the pool with margaritas. RJ is now making his tasty enchiladas for dinner.

    Tomorrow: RJ will be golfing while I do some yard work and household chores. Maybe more pool time. Omelettes and strawberries for dinner.

    That is really sad.

    I'm doing a bunch of nothing. My daughter is off to a birthday party, I am watching tv, and cooking myself dinner. The weather isn't so great, gas is high, and I'm still under the weather so I don't mind staying home.

    Friday after work: drop off colleague at her place, dash home, pack the bags, banking, gas up, dash up north for 2.5 hours with a stop for a bite to eat and another stop to pick up a stash of newsaper, cut grass in the dark.

    Saturday: cut grass, visit a neighbour or two, have breakfast in town, dash back south in the southeast direction for a 1:30pm dog grooming appt, kill time by eating our lupper at a local Red Lobster's, pick up the dog, dash back home in a westward direction, unload the car, and relax.

    Sunday: do the MS Walk-a-thon, grocery, laundry, preparation for the upcoming week of work.

    I didn't really have plans for the weekend but did finally manage to arrange new hosting service, something I have been planning for at least the last six weekends in a row and not getting around to. My websites were all down for over 3 weeks because my old hosting service ended the last day of April (and I had planned to get new service before that date but didn't manage it). So I am pleased to be back online , though I still have one more website to upload.

    Just the usual exciting stuff.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    I am tempted to fill in with a list of what could possibly be your "usual exciting stuff" -- like robbing banks or hacking into government super-computers. It could become it's own thread: guess what JNA did for the weekend? We could have a poll and everything.

    Sorry to burst your balloon but that list is very dull and boring at best.
    It was laundry, dishes, recycling, posting on Cyburbia, reading, talking to family on both coasts, spending money (plane ticket for july vacation), doing nothing, watching it rain, paying some bills, church small group get together, and grocery shopping.

    Yeah, I knew you were being sarcastic. That's why I thought a thread about your hi-jinx as an international spy or some such would be funny. Sorry if you were offended.

    So we did end up doing something for the weekend. My secretary invited me and the resident teenager down to her new house which is a stone's throw away from Long Island Beach, NJ. Yesterday we went to the beach and to Barnegat Lighthouse, cooked out, and watched Children of Men. Today her daughter and grandkids came over and we grilled burgers and dogs and took the kids swimming. Sometimes it's nice being part of a bigger family, even if it isn't yours.

    I am having some bizarre allergy attack and have done nothing but blow my nose (it's horribly runny) every 90 seconds for the 12 hrs since I woke up. Looks like I'll be sacking out on the couch tonight, so RJ can get some sleep.

    Didn't you mean Long Beach Island ? (where I grew up)
    and as I remember nothing is a stone throw from LBI.

    Did you climb up the stairs of Old Barny ?

    Amen, sister! I missed the Wheatland Traditional Arts Weekend last year, and for a couple of years I have left early. (Finally learned that the fun happens where I am, and I shouldn't abandon it to drive three hours across the state to find different fun.)

    New sweetie was amazed at all the warm hugs I was getting, and that was before we reached the registration booth. I've previously told him that I will share my friends, and sure enough, all these warm delightful folks accepted and embraced him as their own. The gals we camped next to, whom I've known for more than a decade, grilled him just like my mama would have. "We need to make sure you're good enough for Veloise," one explained. He took it most good-naturedly, the same way he does everything else.

    Friends become our chosen family. I have that on a throw pillow.

    Yes and yes. The nice weather enabled a great view. We walked on the small trail and read all the interpretive plaques. Hoping to go back soon!

    I like my chosen family better than my own minuscule family.

    heading to Baltimore this weekend to catch the Red Sox vs. Orioles. My bro from VA, my aunt & uncle from NC, and my cousin from NYC, will all be there. should be a nice mini-reunion.

    LOL TOFB - post pics!

    I already have the weekend booked with 2 parties (Friday/Saturday) with separate friendship groups to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday - he's a little uptight about this birthday but he's okay with a couple of smaller shin-digs

    we also have our Waldorf Maypole celebration that will assuredly help the inevitable hangover...

    Next weekend I am moving to a MUCH bigger (no HUGE) apartment that is literally on the same block as my job. Can't hardly wait.

    Off-topic:
    What I need is a house that's only close to work when I want to get there or when it's time to go home. Maybe on a large one-way loop where I can reverse the traffic flow to meet MY needs

    I need to finish weeding through the 300+ digital photos (!) we took and set up a mini-slide show so we can share our Montserrat vacation pictures with family and friends this weekend without boring everyone to death!!

    If you lived at The Panhandle Bistro you'd be suffering right now with a pool temp of about 90 degrees.

    My son and I are heading to Orlando Friday morning. My mom is still hanging on, so we will have some short visits with her. I'm hoping both of us will see some friends while we're there. And my brother is meeting me at Mom's apartment to pack up her personal stuff, since she is confined to the health center at her community and won't be returning to her apartment.

    I used Mapquest today to find "shortest route" which may take up to an hour longer, but lops off about 140 miles roundtrip (on the interstates the total roundtrip is 800 miles). Hopefully it will be a more relaxing drive and I sure will spend less on gas. Still, it's the bulk of two days spent just driving.

    Party In The Park !

    Here's the plans for the weekend that begins Friday, 6-30-08.....

    Friday PM - First "Party In The Park" in beautiful Swanton, OH. Wandering over to the beer wagon about 6:00 PM. Chance of thunder-bumpers.....hoping they arrive later. Some of Katie's wild work friends will be there....maybe a couple of my workplace pals. Woo-hoo! (Swanton does 3 or 4 of these every summer.)

    This is an event that has been attended by another famous Cyburbian.....

    Probably skip over to Hub's after the P-I-T-P.

    Saturday AM - Heading for Cabella's Outdoor World, Dundee, MI.....about 35 miles from my home. Need some stuff for my boat.

    Saturday Mid-Day - Finish cleaning and prepping the boat; pull out the tackle box, string the fishing poles, practice some casting out on the street.

    Saturday PM - Not sure.....Katie has a gift certificate for Shucker's, the great seafood restaurant in Swanton. They have a new outside deck.....cocktails and perch sounds awfully nice!

    Note: Most restaurants and taverns in Ohio have added outside decks (if they have the site space). Reason is the NO SMOKING laws passed about a year ago.

    Sunday - Putz in garage, maybe start my big "tear down the monster room project". For sure, later in day, relax with an old movie and work on my fake city. (Working on Superior Research Park, somewhat based on Triangle Research Park in North Carolina.)

    Did I mention the fact that Rolling Rock will be along for the weekend?

    Fri: Indiana Jones

    Sat: Probably go for a hike, run or bike ride during the day. Then a bunch of us are getting together for a girls night out... getting dressed to the nines, making fancy dinner reservations, then smuggling canned sparkling wine (or some other tasty beverage) into the movie theater to watch Sex and the City

    Sun: Haven't thought that far ahead. Probably more outside time... I think one of my friends is planning a cookout.
