Is it Friday again already? Fantastic!
I like Friday mornings... they're fairly relaxing, as we don't have to be at preschool to drop off Dylan until 9:15 a.m. Plenty of time for extra cups of tea, and to eat my toast while it's still hot. We've got a few busy days ahead, so this extra time to relax on the couch is just what I need.
This morning I've got groceries to pick up, my run-kit to collect (ooh, can't wait to get my pinny with my race number on it!), letters to mail, birthday presents to wrap, passport photos to have done (not mine, but the boys') and dinner to plan... During naps this afternoon, I've got a phone date with Em (finally!) and laundry to catch up on. Then we're off downtown to the bookstore to load up on stacks of the best children's books I can find (my principal is insisting I spend all my allocated money for the library by May 15th! what's a girl to do?) and to pick up Alan from work. I'll bring everyone home and deposit them safely on the doorstep, and then I'm off again, to a preschool executive social/meeting (which reminds me... must make a veggie tray). Whew!
Tomorrow, we've got the community clean-up (oh! I can't wait to see my deck again once all the crap is cleared away!), my brother is doing some long-awaited repairs to the van (interior lights at night-time are a must, don't you agree?) Dylan is going to a birthday party, Alan will be working in the garden like he always does on a Saturday, I'll be making homemade pizzas and a big salad for dinner, and we'll be watching Dr Who when the boys have gone to bed (awesome! I am loving this new series, and am growing fonder of the 11th Doctor every week). Speaking of going to bed, an early bedtime will be an absolute must, because...
On Sunday morning, I have to be downtown by 6:30 a.m. to find a place to park, to stretch and warm-up and find my place for the 8 o'clock start gun!!! 10K, here I come! Wish me luck, won't you? I'm excited and nervous all at once.
What are your plans for this weekend? Will you get to relax a little bit more than I will?
