So in what is all too typical of me, I managed to cram everything under the sun into my 5 days off. My house is finally clean... well, the downstairs is, anyway. And the finances are updated/readjusted for now and I made some progress on Lego Harry Potter. But what I'm really excited about is this weekend! I have an action packed three days coming up:
Friday is a day trip to New Orleans with some of the ladies from the local spouses' club. This should be a good trip because we really have not taken advantage of the closeness of NOLA yet, so hopefully I'll get some inexpensive day trip ideas. Plus, I get to hang out with a good friend!
Saturday is the Renaissance Festival in Hammond, LA. In honor of Veterans Day, this weekend is half off for military families. I've heard nothing but good about this festival and I'm very excited to be going with yet more good friends!
Sunday is my cram day of sorts... we were originally going to spend the whole day at the semi-local Celtic Festival (complete with jousting, music, and sheep herding dogs!). But of course I had to get on the internet and one thing led to another (as it often does for me) and I found a Christmas craft fair! And, even more unsurprisingly, it's only this weekend, just like the Celtic Festival. Thus, Sunday is just going to be busy and that's all there is to it.
You may notice the lack of book clearing. Not to worry, I started the list two days ago and just have to go take them off my shelves now. Going to squeeze in the worst part of that before we go out to dinner tonight. But first, I have to kick the two napping beagles off my lap!
