I love this photo. V. looks like the bat leader of the dog pack.
Tonight was one of those crazy, rush around nights in the Churlish household. I got home from work, dropped Coadster's soccer jersey off at her game, went running, came home, picked up Stinky, went to Coadster's game, took the girls for some greasy, crappy fast food, got gas and a few groceries to last until Sunday and made it home with a half hour to spare until I had to take Coadster to jazz choir rehearsal at nine. Whew!
Here are some peonies coming up by a headstone. It's so very "beginning and end of the cycle", isn't it?
So, what's on tap for the weekend, you ask?...Or maybe you didn't, but I'm gonna tell you anyway. Sadly, I have to work the entire Friday tomorrow. I put in my vacation requests for the next two months, so in May I'll work half days on the 1st and the 15th. (Coadster's 17th birthday. Eek!) Then get Memorial day off. In June I always take the the two days off after the girls' last day of school. This year those days fall on a Friday and Monday. Perfect. Then I'll take three more days off at the end of June. I kind of like breaking my week of vacation up so that I get at least one day off every week in June.
Friday night Coadster's going to the free concert of the band, Motion City Soundtrack at the student union for Riverfest and Stinky is going to see the Hannah Montana movie and then either sleepover at a friend's house or have that friend sleep at our house. Me? I'm planning on driving Stinky and her friend to their movie, but then just staying home and drinking a beer and watching a movie on my own. It's what I've been fantasizing about doing all week. That's how lame I am.
Saturday, I'll do practical stuff like recycling, and helping Coadster study for her AP government exam and get all of our bike maintenance done. Then I'll go grab a beer with my friend G. Rumor has it that my girl crush will be in town for a bachelorette party, so I'll try to hook up with her at some point too. You can bet your sweet ass, I won't forget my camera this time around.
Sooooo, what are all you all's plans? Will you get to do the thing you've been fantasizing about all week? (Please feel free not to go into any detail)
