    We're not sure if it'll rain or not but would like to get out for a bike ride. We'll also do some shopping for warmer clothes or at least looking around since there will be sales. Sometimes just looking is fun!

    I'm going to help my mom clean her house so we can get ready when my dad can finally come home, hopefully this week from the hospital. He's had quite a 2-day business trip (turned into going to a hospital for 2 weeks).

    I also want to take my dog to the park and read some new magazines to relax. This has been one of the most stressful moments in my life (2 of our 4 parents are in the hospital at the same time for unrelated issues).

    I'm canning this weekend...our tomato harvest is going to be fantastic!

    Other than that, we're just staying home. It will be nice to be home with DH...I miss him during the day after being home all summer.

    Took the day off from school and we are camping right on the beach at Flagler Beach, which is right between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine. The trailer and motor homes sit up on the seawall overlooking the ocean. Right now I am sitting looking at the waves crashing on the beach-rough surf due to an earlier storm. Bonfire on the beach tonight (mmmm-s'mores) and lots of family coming from all over for the rest of the weekend. Relaxing and fun.

    Nothing too exciting.

    Tonight: chilling at home; I'm exhausted. Went out and stayed out way too late last night.

    Tomorrow: library, making mac & cheese, laundry (I'm almost out of underwear!), dinner at my aunt's house.

    Sunday: cleaning my pigsty, field days later on.

    Monday: no plans yet. probably just getting things ready for the week.

    I really would like to go shopping for new clothes but I'm seriously lacking in funds : (

    Hopefully we will be buying a house. We just sold our house for sure today. So we have 30 days to find a house. We looked at two houses tonight and we will look at some more tomorrow. Once we find a house I guess we will start packing.

    We were supposed to go out tonight, but BF is puking, so I guess all plans are contingent on him not being sicker and me not getting whatever he has. So tonight we are just hanging out. I was lazy all day today and that was fabulous enough.

    Tomorrow we are going to plan out our meals and go to the farmers market and the grocery store for the week.

    Sunday his friend from work is having a bbq so we are going to that.

    Monday we are going to see his friends baby and we are going to a Polish Festival.

    The weather's still pretty hot these days (mid 80s - low 90s), so when it gets to be the cool evening, I'll be going to the county fair in my area for a day here & there all this month. I got a season's pass. I plan to go tonight.

    I have plans Sunday night (tonight) but am trying to decide what to do today... I worked on a scrapbook for awhile, but beyond that, I am feeling ever so tempted to go into work!

    Went to a cookout last night after spending the day yesterday cleaning the house and napping. Went to a park today with my son. Stopped and picked up some Panera on the way then relaxed and ate while he played. Then we both hiked on a trail along the river.

    Have some Kohl's cash I have to spend by tomorrow. Might go there tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Also considering either a trip to the zoo or to the ice cream factory.

    I wish every weekend was a 3-day weekend!

    Friday on the way out of the buiilding I promised my principal I wasn't coming into school at all this weekend. Went to the football game Friday night. Spent Saturday recovering from being on my feet Friday from 7:50 am until midnight. It rained at the football game and the seats were wet didn't want to sit on the stands. This morning woke up earlier than on a school day, drove 65 miles to see a Balloon fest. It was amazing!!!! Tomorrow we are cleaning house if even the kids groan and moan about it.

    Sunday - shopping so my family doesn't starve as per another thread and actually cooked dinner - went to a Native American pow wow in the afternoon - taking a break from homework currently

    Monday - the plan is to clean house, do laundry, pre-cook some meals, do homework, do lesson planning, do everything I have been avoiding

    I went to a luau thrown by a nearby hula-dancing school (I wasn't even aware there were such schools before this weekend, especially not in New Jersey).

    The people there were all really sweet, warm, and welcoming. It lasted from about 3 to about 9. There was a stage set up and dance performances started around 5 and went for a few hours, including both child and adult students and teachers. Now I'm trying to think of ways to convince my kids they really would like to take hula dancing lessons.

    No plans yet. We need to clean, I have too much to upload on Sprout, dh promised to work on my new advertising campaign (yeah, right....). That's about it. He wants me to keep it open in case he thinks of something to do. He's been looking at last minute trip ideas, so he wants me ready to leave at a moment's notice in case he gets an amazing deal in Paris. Again-yeah, right....

    I thought we might go to some open houses on Sunday, but it looks like he's not interested.

    Why did I get married again???

    I've been working on cocktail party plans for next weekend- Dh's birthday party. Autumnal theme- gorgeous silk fall leaves and garlands, candles in cut out gourds...I've already baked 12 dozen mini cupcakes and 6 dozen meatballs...ordered a wrap platter and a cheese platter. The rest of the food is 'put together' stuff...

    I'm already exhausted from this week- jury duty day and back to school night plus many hours of tutoring...Glad I have a week still to get it all ready for the party.

    Great show- I saw it on Broadway a few years back. The dad of one of my students at the time was a sound engineer for the show so he invited us for a backstage tour before the show started. So cool. I got to have my picture taken in Glinda's bubble wand. ;)

    My family is coming for a visit. I love it when everyone is around. I would love it if we all lived together. I miss the activity, the noise, the drama and the fun of a big family. I am cooking up a storm. Spaghetti sauce is on simmering, and I am going to make a couple pies. I will put something in the crock pot, and thaw some meat for BBQing. I do hate cleaning the house, but that is part of the fun--and if I don't get it done, no one cares.

    Have fun at the fair! This is the first year in several years that I won't be going because of all that's going on. It's about an hour to get there and last year it took about an hour just to get off the exit and we drove around so much trying to find parking that we ended up paying a local resident who was selling their driveway/yard for parking space. It was hard to get excited after all of that hassle just to get to the fair so hopefully next time we can go on a weekday!

    Thanks, I will! :) Oh no, what an ordeal you went through! :( I bought a season's pass. I usually go 2-3 times each year. Can't wait to eat that fair food. I didn't eat all day to save my appetite!
