Weekend, weekend......here I come.......
No college visits. No big plans. A little party here, a little cooking there and a whole lot of nothing else. At least that's how things are looking on this end of the weekend. Let's just see how things end up come Sunday night. So, stay tuned on that one.
As we inch into November, I suppose I should start thinking about readying the house for Thanksgiving, starting the Christmas shopping and beginning my never-ending holiday countdown to-do list. But, I'm not. Nope. Not this weekend. If I were really smart I would. But, nope, I'm going to wait until a weekend when I have seven things happening at the same time and then throw in a few more. I am going to do just that. Because that is who I am.
For this weekend--my plan is simple--I will do exactly what is planned and I will not do anything more. I will not guilt myself into anything other than what's on the calendar. I'll do minor chores. I will not re-do the kitchen or take apart the attic. I will do a little laundry. I will not tackle all the curtains, throw rugs and blankets in the house. I will do a bit of grocery shopping. I won't stock the cabinets or haul home sacks of flour and sugar for the holidays. I will cook if I have to. But, I will not make elaborate or gourmet meals. I will read the paper and magazines and clip coupons. I will go through cookbooks and look at pictures and recipes. I will sip tzao ginger peach tea. Maybe I will catch a movie. I'll enlist my favorite shopping partner for a little run to the Galleria to check out a few of our fav stores. I'll go to Starbucks and order a Non Fat Venti Chai Latte with an Energy Shot and a Protein Shot and maybe even a squirt of pumpkin syrup. I might buy shoes. Maybe even boots.
This weekend, I plan to live like a Diva. I'll have on my leopard nighty and robe ensemble when I run to the front walkway to pick up the newspaper. I'll wear stihlettos to the Confirmation Party. I'll refuse to get out of bed until 8. And, I won't serve anyone---even if they say PLEASE.
Well, at least this is my plan......
