Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend? I'm thinking about going to the movies to watch Stardust or the Seeker and if that doesn't work out, I'll make a fool-hardy attempt at writing music (fatboyslim is my inspiration...lol). I'll probably make a few more coconut cookies for the road, get the car inspected...anything to enjoy the weekend and take my mind off of my colon...oh...maybe I'll relax in a park with the kids as well.
Love you all,

I'm going to attempt to--yikes--hike! this weekend. I've been "working out" for the past six weeks, mainly trying to build strength after a year of sickness (was hosp Nov. 06 for two weeks for a major flare, out of work for five months, still only working PT). The other thing I LOVE is laying on the couch w/a book and my mini dachsund and read and drift on/off sleep--now, that sounds better than hiking anytime.

The weekend is going to be beautiful here in Michigan so we are taking off to my inlaws cottage which is about 2 1/2 hours north of me. Us Michiganians like to say we are going up north :) The temps are supposed to be in the 80's which is so untypical for a Michigan fall that it's going to be sort of strange because the main reason we are going is to view the fall leave colors.

We have a crazy weekend. My mil is throwing a 'birthday weekend' for my father-in-law (think golf for the guys, fancy party, etc). In addition to that my son has two birthday parties to attend. It is going to be a crazy weekend! I'm hoping to sneak to the gym at some point.

My brother has been living with my husband and I for the last 7 months and is finally moving out Saturday...so we'll be helping him move. Usually helping people move isn't something I like doing, but in this case I'm really excited - we get our privacy back yeah !!
This weekend is Thanksgiving in Canada, so Sunday I'll be eating lots of Turkey.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Tara, I know what you mean about your privacy! Umm btw, what IS that??? :) My brother lived with me for about a year and when he moved out, I realized exactly how much privacy me and the hubby didn't have while he was there.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians here!
