The Weekend & The Week Ahead

Had a whoa damn and busy weekend, and I’m glad it’s Monday. You know you’ve had an exhausting weekend when you’re glad it’s a Monday. :giggle:

Saturday was all about running errands and shopping. I’m giving a baby shower this coming weekend for someone I consider practically a daughter. She and her husband are very close to me. Her husband is #1 son’s best friend and he actually lived with us for awhile back when they were teens, so I consider him family. And he started dating his now wife when he was living at my house. This is their third baby (a boy), expected in June, and I’m really excited for them. And I just have to say…baby showers are a hell of a lot of work. Gah. Anyway, lots of shopping for that, and I have to clean house this week. Bleh.

Sunday, of course, was Mother’s Day. We got up at the ass crack of dawn to shower and get ready because we took my mother-in-law to breakfast. Spent some time with her yesterday, which is always fun because my mother-in-law, who’s 86, is just the sweetest woman on the planet. Then #1 son and my granddauhter took Biker Dude and I to see Star Trek (daughter in law had to work. Doesn’t that suck to have to work on Mother’s Day?).

Star Trek was AWESOME! Loved it, loved it, loved it. They stayed true to the original Star Trek canon, and yet completely turned it on its head at the same time. I can’t say enough positive things about this movie and the new direction JJ Abrams has taken the Star Trek franchise, other than to say I’m still thinking about the movie today and I can’t wait for the next one. Wheeeee!!!!

After that we came back to the house, hung out, had burgers, then we collapsed. I’m tellin’ ya, exhausting weekend.

This week I intend to write write and write. Have a book on deadline and I need to write and write hard because it’s due June 1st. Which means I not only have to have the book finished by then, but edited so I can turn it in. Feeling the pressure.

Did I mention I’m giving a baby shower this weekend? Anyone want to come clean my house for me? Because it’s a total wreck. Not sure when I’m going to find time to do the cleaning. Maybe the cleaning fairies will show up. :gah:
