Ten Things I Would Like To Do This Weekend

We are staying home this weekend.


I have been down in the dumps this week, hungover from taking care of Mom, worrying about my job, and coping with some odd form of menopausal PMS. I do believe that it was mostly from the hormones though, because I felt much more sanguine yesterday and I'm feeling pretty good today.

But really! PMS when I haven't had a period in months! So. Not. Fair. Kind of like getting zits in your thirties, when the only thing that kept you going in your teens was the reassuring thought that once you hit adulthood the zits would be gone for good.


Anyway, the thought of an unstructured weekend is simply delicious, and I have been thinking about what I will do with all that time, so here, in no particular order, are Ten Things I Would Like To Do:

  1. Sleep late, and by "late" I mean, oh, 8:00 am.
  2. See at least one movie. I would like to see Hairspray, or Harry Potter, or The Simpsons. I do not want to see El Cantante, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, or I Know Who Killed Me. I could settle for Live Free or Die Hard, Transformers, or The Bourne Ultimatum (but only because of Matt Damon).
  3. Play a lot of Snood.
  4. Take a few naps.
  5. Buy Harry Potter and Lean Mean Thirteen. (I have a coup'n for 30% off!)
  6. Read them.
  7. Eat ice cream in some form, several times.
  8. Do the Dance of Love.
  9. Scrapbook my pictures from last September's trip to Chicago.
  10. Succeed at simpsonizing myself. (I got very close once this week, only to have the site freeze up at the very, very end.)

You will notice that there is nothing about exercising, bill paying, house cleaning, or dejunkifying. So there.
