Friday Night and Everyone's Moving

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)

I'm thinking I'll do a repeat of last weekend and play with Mikey baby. It's going to be super nice. Maybe a picnic at the river.

I love the peonies photo! That's one worth framing.

I'm going to see a band called Ace Molar tonight. Maybe I'll be able to do some yard work tomorrow.

Getting a lilac bush and painting the piece of wood that my house numbers are on. How's that for exciting???

I am trying to plan to do something. It is still a question at this point.
I really like spreading out my vacation days too.
Have a great weekend, Churlita!

Work, work, work. I picked up an extra shift at the restaurant for tonight. Good, because it looks like I'll have to be ponying up tuition in a few months!

I have to work until 2pm today and then I'll be off doing some casual shopping - photo frames and maybe a few items to wear for this sudden bit of Summer we're having. I don't have enough shorts and I need new sandals too. Pick up a pair of black socks and I'm good to go. ;)

I was in a car way too much of this past week. Now I'm just sitting on my bed and reading blogs.

...heaven I tell you.
