    I'm thinking about a day trip somewhere, see Mall Cop (Kevin James was funny in the trailer so I'll give it a try!) try a new Indian restaurant for lunch ($6 for entree, rice, dessert, and drink!), and maybe go to the dog park again. We went last weekend and most of it was taped off because of the flooding we've had. The dogs didn't seem to mind since they could still run under the tape! I saw a bench surrounded by water!

    (Oh yeah, and the usual weekend things---chores and errands!)

    So, what are your plans? :)

    lol my mom really wants to see mall cop too. here are my plans:

    Friday night: See B.I.G. movie with my friends

    Saturday: Have brunch with my bro and the family for his b-day, then host a Wii party for my friends in the evening

    Sunday: "and she rested"

    Monday: spa day with mom and maybe go to a concert with a group of friends.

    Tuesday: watch inauguration and relax

    It's not much, BUT I really want to have some down time. My last vacation I did something almost everyday and found that I wasn't well rested when I returned to school

    I'm surprised that so many people have Monday off. I've never had MLK day off, even when I was a student.

    The kids are off, but the teachers have in-service. So 2 day weekend for me.

    Not yet, and I probably won't. My husband doesn't have the day off. We both work at a college, but his department (admissions) doesn't take the day off (they give them a floating holiday instead) because their goal is to get high schoolers into the college, and since high schools have off they hope to get in contact with them throughout the day. Boo! :(

    So this weekend will probably be the same things we normally do, but oh well...I still enjoy them! :)

    Not much planned here, we are taking our oldest dog to the vet tomorrow and I think heading to the gun range for a few hours. Nothing relieves stress like some good target practice! ;-) I just found out about an hour ago I have Monday off...so YAY for three day weekends! LOL

    **Oh and I really want to see "Mall Cop" too, it looks like it'll be hysterical and I love stupid funny movies like that! :)

    I laughed out loud when he was sneaking through the bank roped off lines and when he was sliding behind the sign just for the trailer so I'll go! :lol: Laughing is good for people!

    I completely agree! :D The trailer is great and just the premise of the whole movie makes me think it'll be a great escape for a hour and a half or so! (I loved him sneaking through the bank roped off lines...LOL)

    Laughing IS good for you!

    I guess Wisconsin doesn't consider it a national holiday! We don't get off for holidays like MLK day or president's day. But we do get memorial day and labor day off. I'm not really sure why that is...
