Happy Saturday to all~~

I think we all could use some time this weekend to do something just for us. Anything from treating yourself to a shopping trip or buying yourself a treat to relaxing for an hour or two reading a book you want to dive into. This is not selfish, it's treating ourselves good like everyone should do once in a while.

So, here's the plan. Grab a scrap of paper or just write your thoughts here since you can refer back to them and the forum won't lose Write down 3 things you plan on doing just for YOU this weekend. If you like, post the list on the refrigerator next to those appointment cards, pictures from kids and sticky notes. Let others in the home know what the list is about if you like or you can just keep in here and we won't tell BUT you have to do what's on your list. Well, at least some of it. We all know that life happens when we are making plans so we'll be happy if we accomplish one of our treats for ourselves.

Here's my list...3 things I will do just for me this weekend are:

1) Read some of the books I brought home from the library on Wednesday. These are mainly picture books on quilting them!

2) Take a long, hot soaking shower until I feel like getting out or the hot water runs out. the warm water.

3) I am going to take some extra computer time to work on some photographs. I have been learning Photoshop Elements and trying to use it for digital scrapbooking. Then I will be printing them for gifts. I love working on this but always get interrupted or have to work on it late and night when I'm tired. But this weekend I'm going to take 2-3 hours to just play with the pictures.

OK, what are 3 things on your ME list for the weekend?

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

Let's see... in-laws AND my dad are in town this weekend... So, my three things are:

1. avoid the in-laws as much as possible...

2. hide from the in-laws when possible...

3. keep my dad from having a battle of wits with an unarmed person...

Yup... those are the three things I'm doing for me this weekend...
