An interesting weekend ahead

Friday, March 26, 2010

Maybe not everybody's cup of tea, but I'm looking forward to it.

Early to bed and early to rise: up before the crack of dawn on Saturday to take a friend to the airport and to get to my 5k by 7 am. Let's hope there's sushi at the finish line, but if last time is any indication, it won't matter what's there, I'll be famished. It's amazing how ravenous this small body can get.

By 11:30 on Saturday, the sheetrock guy should be there. Something ate a hole in the ceiling in the living room. And yet I haven't heard any scurrying or tromping in the attic. Very curious.

DD has been put on notice that she has a date with me Saturday night for some energetic tossing out and cleaning. She suggested a friend of hers might like to help, so I volunteered to fix dinner for them. I'm thinking pasta primavera since DD is vegan. Maybe a side of roast beast since the friend and I are omnivores.

On Sunday morning Sophie and I are doing the Humane Society K-9 Fun Run. I'll look OK in my new T-shirt, but Sophie is going to look downright spiffy in her Fun Run bandanna! And then we'll pick up the other daughter and figure out something fun to do. Maybe some more tossing out and cleaning.....

    I pulled out my back and spent a lot of this week flat out and staring at the clutter in the corner of our bedroom, slowly taking over like a monster from the dark lagoon....and fantasizing about attacking it and other clutter! Your blog abt clutter was right on- thank you! ANd your solution for this weekend is inspiring. There is something about decluttering with a friend around that 1) makes the time fly 2)helps with decisiveness/staying on track. A friend has been having a declutter date with another friend once every two weeks for the past several months- 3 to 4 hours at a go. Both their homes are now transformed.
    And the races sound like great breaks from the decluttering.
    Sophie-dog's a winner, however she does in the race.

    Good for you!! You have great plans, I love the running and hope to do more of it myself, little by little until I can build up my strength to do it for more than 1-2 blocks which is where I'm at now.

    I also love the cleaning things out. That made me smile because I'm in the same mind set with spring cleaning. It's so much easier to keep things neat and clean when you don't have so much stuff!!

    Have a super weekend! emoticon plans!

    Actually, sounds like a fantastic weekend!

    Our dogs are too small to walk in bandanas! Maybe that's my new market -- mini bandanas for toy dogs so they're not constantly tripping them up!
