A Guarantee In Melody, A Promise in the Sky

Another frolicking in the snow pic. It actually snowed here for a bit after work. It didn't stick, though.

Whoa! It's the weekend already. That has to be the fastest week we've had so far. I decided to take it easy as far as working out was concerned, until I get a handle on my cold. It's not horrible or anything, I just don't want it to get that way. Ever since Stinky got sick and her immune system was down, I've been so careful about getting sick myself. It's one of those things I've never gotten over from her illness.

So, I'll try to take it as easy as I can this weekend, but that's always easier said than done. I get off work early tomorrow, so I'll be home when my living room furniture gets delivered. I'm so excited. I was told it could take six weeks, but it got here in just about two. RAWK!

Friday night, I plan on draping myself on my new couch or my new big reading chair and watching movies with the girls. That ought to help chill-out my cold.

Coadster has her Winter show for show choir on Saturday afternoon. She has a couple of solos, so I'm going to try really, really hard not to get all sappy and teary during them. I'm not promising anything, though.

Saturday night will depend on how I feel. My friend G. wants me to go out and if I'm up for it I'll try. I ran into the guy who subleased my apartment on my way home from work tonight. He was headed to Joe's for an after work beer. I didn't see him at first, but he caught my eye and we chatted for a while. He seems like a really nice guy and he has a good job and he's pretty damn cute. I thought it might be a good thing for him to meet G. and see what happens. So, if I do go out, I think we'll take a stroll into Joe's for a beer and see who we "just happen" to run into...

Sunday will be devoted to house beautification projects. We'll do some outdoor work and then the paint prepping will begin in earnest. I hope it all ends up looking as good in real life, as it does in my head.

And so now...What are your plans? Will you be draping yourself over new furniture, or going for a stroll in a different drinking establishment to see who you run into?

On Saturday my new washer and dryer are being delivered and my tire something is getting fixed. I never thought I'd be pumped about doing laundry until I had to go somewhere other than home to do laundry for over a month. It's horrible. I'm going to have to resist hugging my washing machine and professing my love to it. least until the delivery men leave.

I'm so excited for you about the furniture being delivered! And I'm sending good luck vibes to Coadster for her solos!

Tonight I'm spending some quality time with some friends who I haven't seen in way too long. Then tomorrow night I'm going to a disco party and Santa will be there. I was gonna go to the Christmas party for my work, but I'd rather spend time with friends.

New furniture to break in; can be fun.
before time moves on perhapsyou do a video with audio of Coadster's solo and play them for us admirers from afar.
We'll be a flyin' this weekend: kids back to Texas and we to NY.
CU mon.

Going to try and get the lights up this weekend if the snow gets off the roof!

And... kids are just little petri dishes full of germs, aren't they?

That's great about your furniture showing up like that! Yay.

Sounds like you have a good plan going... and being careful of your health is smart.

Me? I'm going to spend mine snuggling and enjoying good comapany. Big grin.

Oh, I hope Coadster has a great concert and that you all have a fine weekend breaking in your new furniture a bit.

Staying healthy and running into interesting people sounds good also.

I will probably be a total veg this weekend, but you could have guess that!

Oh my god, how could you think of going out when you have nifty new furniture?!? Don't you want to ...what's that thing cats and dogs do. Mark your territory? Okay, mark your territory, but without the peeing? And if you go out, how will you find time to load the pictures and give me a tour?!?

Still, it's the weekend here, too and that means garage sales and that ALWAYS means there's a chance we, too, will end up with new furniture. The used kind, but still...

mmm draping yourself over new furniture is something to be savored and lingered over. Enjoy it!

As for not getting misty at Coadster's show choir - heck! that's your JOB!!! (isn't she a senior? last winder show choir concert, blah blah blah?) Bring a hankie.
