Who's going to tackle Saturday with me?

Jean in Newcastle

Recommended Posts



Catch up on theology studies which have been severely neglected this week.

Get bagels

laundry (never got to it yesterday)

At some point take a shower

Take 17 yo to piano lessons/run errands (at 1:30)

17 yo and I are going to an exhibit called Will and Jane about the influence of Shakespeare and Austen in our culture.  He would not ordinarily agree to go to such a thing, but in his honors English class at the community college he'll get extra credit if he goes to at least 5 cultural events.  I think five is a steep number!  But anyway, since this exhibit is near us, we are going for a couple of hours today.

Tonight - take out for dinner.  After last night's big birthday/anniversary bash, I am all cooked out!

I going to a dancing workshop. I have taken lessons for awhile, but have never went to a workshop. It is only 2.5 hours long. I'm also going to a dance tonight.


I do have to do some house tiding today. Tomorrow we go to my parents since it is a holiday weekend in this part of Canada (thanksgiving) and I dislike coming home to a messy house after being away for a sleepover. It seems like my kids and Dh like to bring everything and the kitchen sink when we go away over night. It then all gets dumped in the living room and kitchen. So if those rooms aren't clean before they get dumped on then it takes me even longer to dig out of the mess.

So not nearly as relaxing as hoped for today. Helped dd2 with homework all afternoon until I got a call from ds2 that his bike was stolen from the park and ride. So mad, I watched him lock it up. Yeah, so that would be another reason that we moved from that place. So ds2 walked to police station and filed a report and missed D&D which is one of his favorite things and only meets once a month.

Dh and ds3 arrived home very tired and everyone is exhausted and irritable. 


I just hate when things like this happen, it makes me so frustrated and angry with the world. One should be able to lock up a bike at a bus station with a good lock and it should be there when you return in the afternoon. If I was a witch, I would place a curse on the thief. 


Sigh, just an impotent frustrated mom.
