Or Thursday Watch the Walls Instead

Here's another snowy branch pic.

Well, kids. I just got finished painting my bedroom and I still have to clean-up. Sounds like the beginning of last Thursday's post, doesn't it? Anyway, I could have been done a lot sooner, but I went running and got the girls dinner ready and then stopped over at my friend E.'s house. Tuesday was her birthday, so she wanted to have a girly happy hour. I only stopped by for about an hour, and that was perfect. I got to see some friends, have Libby swear at me and drink one beer. Then I finally made it home to paint. I think I have this moment with every room I do, but when I'm halfway done, I look around and think, "Holy shit! That's a lot of whatever color I painted it" and then I get over it and after I get everything put back together, it doesn't seem quite so overwhelming. At one point, Coadster walked in and surveyed the room. I asked her what she thought and she said, "It's very you." I'm not sure if she thought that was a good or bad thing. But I want my room to look like me, so I'll just go ahead and think it's good.

Sooo, the weekend? Well, tomorrow night Stinky is babysitting for my friend Eggo. I'm not sure what Coadster's doing. I suppose if she's going out, I could too if I wanted. I know a lot of people who will be out and about, but I'd rather stay home and get my room put back together and drink a beer and watch a movie or read a book.

Since I was so good and finished my Christmas shopping already, I plan on just working more on the house on Saturday afternoon and running, of course. Then I'll meet some people out for a beer and talk to real live grown-ups for a couple of hours on Saturday night. It's my favorite couple - the Hall's anniversary. Stinky is babysitting for them, so I would love to run into them after they do their romantic dinner and stuff. But I could see where they might not want their dorky friend tagging along on their date too...

Okay. I better go clean-up paint and hit the hay. Let me know what you all are doing. Will you be spending a mellow night at home, or tagging along on your friends' date?

I'm forcing the whole family to have a Christmas day in downtown Minneapolis. The teens think it's lame but I'm determined to have some fun anyway.

I can't wait to see more pictures of your place.

My weekend will probably involve some more shopping. I have a few little tag ends to take care of.

Have a great weekend, Churlita :-)

Those snow pictures are fantastic. They almost look fake.

I love your attitude about the "it's very you" comments". I typically take such comments, especially when coming from the mouth of a family member as an insult, but I like your swing on it much better. I'll try to remember it for next time.

Spent the day reconnecting with an old, old friend-- very happy about it. Hanging at home, drinking wine and celebrating the announcement that Iggy and the Stooges are going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Listening to the Stooges' first album way too loud right now!

Tomorrow night, after work I'm meeting up with my friend and a bunch of others. Can't believe I've been friends with these people for nearly 30 years!

I'm so behind on blog visits. This weekend I had choir concert dress rehearsal and about 8 hours ago we had our Christmas concert. It went well and I'll miss our choir until February when we start rehearsals for our Spring concert.
