Although it's supposed to be beautiful this weekend, it is raining and cold right now in DC. Just had my 3-month oncology check-up and blood draw, so that's out of the way. This weekend will probably be pretty quiet for us.

Tonight we'll probably just grab a bite to eat. I'm planning to peruse the Going Out section of the Washington Post for activities in a few minutes. We've kind of been spending too much lately, so I need to scale back. Speaking of spending too much, we had the cleaning service come today so it should be sparking when we get home from work tonight. One of my favorite things is to sink into a warm tub after it's been cleaned. Otherwise, it's filled with cat hair. Ewww.

Saturday night one of Simon's co-workers is having her 30th birthday party. She wants to re-live her 20's, so everyone is instructed to come dressed as though at a college sorority party. Women are supposed to look ****... So, I might wear a trashy skirt and low-cut top. However, it won't look the same on me as it did 15 years ago. On second thought, this might be a sad party -- everyone trying to re-capture their college years and not looking so good doing it. I think it will be fueled by alcohol, so the beer googles will be on -- just like college. LOL.

Sunday, I really, really need and want to cook and tend to domestic matters, to prepare for the week.

So, ladies, please let me know what wild and crazy plans do YOU have for this Friday the 13th weekend?!

Mimi

Edited to add: Wow, I was censored! I meant to say that women are supposed to look S.K.A.N.K.Y. I realize it's in bad taste, but prohibited? LOL.

    Well, it won't actually be
    Well, it won't actually be too hard at all for me to re-live my 20's~tonight I am going to a Doobie Brothers Concert!!! S.k.a.n.k.y attire absoutley NOT required; the band members are all my age now! LOL My niece/daughter is going with me, as is Reggie. The good thing about raising her is that even at 24 she knows and loves almost all of "my" music from the 60's and 70's and more often than not she is listening to Classic Rock stations! Her Ipod cracks me up; among others she has Cat Stevens, ( who until recently was in retirement longer than she has been alive!) all of the Beatles and Stones, Journey~ even Tops and Temptations! Gotta love that girl!

    I am still training my dog, and am in the leash-training phase. As he is mostly bloodhound his nose and attention are to the ground! He is a beautiful challenge to be sure! LOL

    House is clean, laundry of course needs folding, dinner probably at the casino tonight before or after the show, all is good!

    The Weekend


    Well, I want to stay around here and clean on the house to get ready for my surgery next Wednesday. I want to have a nice, clean house when I leave and one to come home to afterwords. We would still probably have a pizza and watch a movie on Saturday night. I should be kind of done cleaning by then, but, who knows. lol And then hubby and I could spend some time together, alone, just eating pizza, watching a movie and "making out"! lol We may be married over 36 years, but, we are still madly in love with each other. Now, here's the problem...Hubby says no working for me this weekend. I am suppose to just rest and play the part of a queen. Yea, right. lol I guess we will see.

    On Sunday, we are driving out to that little park in the country that noone remembers anymore and we are having a picnic there and just having some fun. It is suppose to be nice and warm, so, I am looking forward to it. And Stef, I will even look for my leaning tree!

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!


    Love, Jeanne ♥

    Sounds awesome, Claudia
    And I'm sure you would look hot in your s.k.a.n.k.y. outfit, too! Have a great time at the casino and at the concert! Rock on.

    Awww, you and your hubby are so cute
    making out and being so in love. I hope Simon and I are like that at 36 years. Have a very good, relaxing weekend, Jeanne. And, YES, you are the queen, so you should act like one!

    I'm dedicating this weekend
    I'm dedicating this weekend to finding an ornament for my secret sister. This weekend shall not end until I find an ornament. This might mean I'll need the power to stop time. So if this weekend seems to go on forever...

    We are going over to some
    We are going over to some friends house for a small dinner party. Really looking forward to it. It should be a lot of fun. And, I don't even have to take anything. Except we are taking a bottle of wine and some fresh flowers.

    Sunday's are just our lazy, lay around days. The best kind!

    HUGS TO ALL!

    My daughter who is 34

    Chen
    My daughter who is 34 took all my Cat Stevens, Melanie, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Beatles, and most everything else of ours. She loves that music and the current music, and opera, musical theater, belly dance, jazz, classical and international music of all kinds. She just loves music. It nice to share a love of music with your kids, nieces, nephews and the younger generations.
    My weekend plans are tomorrow Den and I will go to Denise's and help her pack boxes for her move across the street. And we will watch the kids while she and Kyle move the boxes.
    On Sunday, I am going back to our storage and continue the downsize. We are hoping to have just a few things left and we will move them into a much smaller and less expensive unit.
    Not too exciting but that's okay. Eventually it will all be done and Den and I will relax in our new little house in the country. When we are settled we are getting fishing licenses and Linda and Den and I are going to learn to fly fish. And we plan to go with her to Las Vegas in the spring and to Yosemite also.

    Jeanne,
    While it is nice to

    Jeanne,
    While it is nice to have the house all spanky clean, maybe you can just give it a general going over and then use the rest of the weekend to indeed be queen. The dirt will still be there next week and the week after. I am so less interested in cleaning than I was. My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be homey. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
    And how nice that you will go out to your little park. If you can't find that specific tree then just use any strong looking substitute. Lean away and let the cares flow from you.
    Isn't it nice to still be so in love after all this time? Den and I are still also very much in love. He completes me and I complete him.

    Catch up
    I lost almost a week between hospital and recovery. But I am feeling stronger and can go out of the house if I avoid lots of people..How do I do that? I need to get some meals cooked and put away so I am ready for round two. I want to find my ornament for my sister in pink. I know what I want not where to find it. Sunday is Church and work on Christmas present projects with my daughter. Hope everyone has great fun.

    I like your story! I think I might just start living by it! Ok? lol

    Yes, we are both looking forward to going back to the park and spending a beautiful day together, eating, laughing, walking, just enjoying the serenity of the park. I am so glad that people don't come anymore. It is like our OWN little park and it is beautiful. I will post a pic of one of the roads for you to see on my Expressions Page.

    And yes, it is nice to still love each other as much and more as the day we met. I fell in love with him the first time I saw him and still feel the same way. So very happy that Den and you are the same. It is rare anymore you know! And, I like being rare!

    Sigh....same thing again
    I am still on bedrest but with a twist. I have been given permission to "fold" laundry while sitting down. LOL....hubby has brought two baskets in to me so far and I hear the dryer still going...Whoa!
    Although Doc is pleased, says we have a ways to go. She can feel the internal sutures have not disolved and I am still lopsided. Although, the pain is way, way better. (Not gone, but better) Had to laugh as hubby and Doc had a chat about how they hated to "fold" the laundry the most. Hmph!! Go ahead, give me the job everyone hates! (LOL) BUT, absolutely not allowed to reach up and put clothes on hangers away or bend over and put things in bottom drawers, or empty dishwasher, etc.
    Sigh, guess I'll just have to live with it for 4 more weeks (giggle). Pammy

    Folding laundry
    I'm glad you're feeling better Pammy, but folding laundry? Geez. Maybe you could instruct hubby on the right way to do it and then just watch! You keep taking it easy and let yourself heal. I hope you have a restful weekend.

    Well, I'm home from work. The house is sparkling clean, which is great. Waiting for Simon so we can go out for a relaxing night of Greek food and cocktails. I'm getting so hungry!

    Just got a 'last minute cruise' deal from Princess...
    21 days, leaves November 30 from Rome, ends up in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida....a balcony will run you $1599...

    So, I'll be dreaming this weekend, oh, and going to Long Beach for Sunday antique market.

    This coming Wednesday I have my holter monitor and my echo scheduled. And, I had my ultrasound of my carotid arteries today...of course, the tech couldn't tell me anything...sigh...

    Hugs, and have a GREAT weekend, all!!!

    I guess i will be resting,
    I guess i will be resting, went by myself to dept store, kinda forgot I'm getting over a virus, didnt eat since breakfast, had treatment yesterday. almost passed out felt fine then all the sudden not so fine, and had to call my husband to get me. the store manger yelled a tme as she is a cancer survivor. I feel so much better off the AC that I wasnt thinking. i still forget to eat as i dont care for food. One reason I went to the store was to buy myself a coat because mine does not fit. This sounds sad but I am shaking my head and laughing at myself dor being so dumb. How old am I? Anyways i need some things and I will just have ot have hubby or friend take me for a bit longer I guess. and not forget to eat.

    I love cruises!
    That sounds amazing, Kathi. I've only been to Bermuda on a cruise, but had a really good time. That's a great price for a transatlantic cruise. And a balcony! It should be so relaxing. Have a great time!

    Girl, you have to eat
    I know you don't feel like it, but you must eat something. Have your hubby shop and cook nutritious meals and then just sit down at a designated time and eat a little. Glad you are doing better today. Have a relaxing weekend.
