Good Possibility of a Lazy Weekend

May 24, 2009 · 2 comments

I totally forgot that it’s supposed to rain all weekend here in Jersey.  Saturday was a beautiful day.  I spent most of it in bed.  I got up around 1:30, ran some errands and spent about 4 hours at work.  I’m pretty sure I got done the things I needed to have complete before Tuesday.  At the very least, I can check “spend 4 hours at work” off my weekend to-do list. 

I really only have three other things left on my to-do list: 

  1. Clean the apartment,
  2. Put the kayak in the water, and
  3. Not a damn thing.

#1 should take about 40 minutes, like it usually does.  #2 might not happen, given that it’s supposed to rain.  We’ll see; maybe Sunday.  And #3 is the one I’m looking forward to the most.  I’m considering going to see T4 at some point this weekend.  That’ll fall under #3; so will sitting around at Starbucks and reading for hours on end.

I still have those edits to plug into the electronic version of Nicole’s novel, and that’s been niggling at the back of my brain for many weeks now.  I’d like to try to remember to direct whatever small bursts of motivation I get over the next couple of days towards that.

So, dear reader: that’s about it from my end.  I’m going to watch the copy of Ironman that I borrowed from my mother on Easter Sunday in a couple of minutes, and I need my laptop to do so.  Which means a short blog post.

Sounds positively lovely! Enjoy. (—and let us know if T4 is any good…)

Lord knows that you could use some downtime. Even the most determined of us can get a little ragged without some relaxation time.

Memorial Day is about those who gave up their tomorrows for our today. They’re the men and women who forever gave up the chance to see and hold the child born while they were at war. The chance to again caress their husband or wife and tell them they love them. The chance to hold their mother’s hand and bask in her sweet smile one last time. Or to stare in pure awe at their first grandchild.

They gave it all in the service of their country, and it is our job as citizens of this great land to remember them and their sacrifice.
