Anyway, so it's another exciting Friday night in my household. I can hear Greg yelling at Junior for taking Jane's food, and "The Princess and the Frog" is all set up to depress me for another night. I have Conan's interview with Don Draper - I mean, John Hamm - paused on my DVR because everyone keeps making too much noise for me to pay attention. And I really like to pay attention to my Don Draper. So, essentially, it's another hot night in the city over here. Here's what's on tap for the weekend:
Saturday: I haven't seen my in-laws in quite a while, so we're headed down to the beach to see my mother-in-law. We'll walk down the street from their house to the little beach nearby, Jane will throw a kajillion rocks into the water, we'll drag her kicking and screaming from that fun to go to lunch (hoping to get a lobster roll out of this trip) and then probably for ice cream. The best part will be getting the gossip from that side of the family, because God knows, I am incredibly, incredibly nosy.
Sunday: Chores, chores, chores. I have to head to the mother ship - I have many things on my list, including art supplies, because once again, we have homework for daycare this weekend. We have to decorate a cut-out of a little girl to depict Jane's culture. Yes, friends, I have to artistically represent Jane's Irish, Italian and French Canadian heritage. I printed out some clip art this week - you know, flags, clovers, pizza, maps, stuff like that - and I figured we'd glue it all over the cut out and that would be that. I noticed today that some of the already-finished ones (who are these people are who get these projects done before the deadline?) and they seem to have taken a different, some might say more detailed route - coloring, drawing in faces, culturally-appropriate clothing and stuff - but for us, clip art will be the way to go. I swear to God, we have homework every couple of weeks. After a day of chores and artistry, we will go to my mom's.
Another thing I will be doing this weekend is watching this movie. And I don't care if you make fun of me - I want to see this sooo badly - I adored the Ramona books as a kid - and I actually got teary when I saw the PREVIEW. Can't. Wait.
And what are YOU doing this weekend? It has GOT to be more exciting than mine!
PS Here is a special shout-out to Lisa L., who is irritated I haven't mentioned her on this blog yet. Is it as magical as you expected it to be, Lisa?!
ETA: Don Draper just mentioned mall walking. Nice.
