Things I want to accomplish this weekend:

1. Use my manicure gift certificate and be in control of the massage chair for a good hour
2. Close my eyes under the hair dryer on Saturday at my hair appointment and not talk to anyone until drying time is complete
3. Use movie gift certificate Sunday for a date night and possibly see True Grit... or Narnia

Things I am dreading next week:

1. Speaking in front of my entire k-12 school district at a workshop over the writing interventions I have been using with struggling writers
2. Standing out on bus duty in below freezing weather for 30 minutes
3. Sticking to my "low carb" diet which includes a deck of cards sized serving of gorgeous pasta

Things I am looking forward to this weekend:

1. Playing "puzzles" with Harbor William
2. Visiting the local public library with Harbor and picking out books for the week
3. Lying in bed with David and watching House Hunters and each guessing which house they are going to buy  : )

I hope your lists for this weekend and upcoming week are shaping up nicely, too!

Stay warm!


  1. I love House Hunters!! Have a great weekend!

  2. We watch house hunters too You have got some good lists there! I need to hear about these writing interventions.

  3. I guess which house they're going to buy too! I'm almost always right :)

  4. We saw True Grit last night and really liked it!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. I just love lists! :)

    I can so identify with #2-the hair dryer one. I was there on Wednesday and it was so relaxing...just looking at People magazine and pretending I didn't have tons of Christmas decorations to put away when I got back home--ha! :)

    Have a great weekend.

    P.S. We saw True Grit and really liked it!

  6. Nick and I watch House Hunters in bed every night! Love that show!

  7. You're doing great with your pictures! I would dread speaking in front of people like that too! I'm fine with kids, but adults, not so much!

  8. Love the pictures! Sorry about the Hogs we were hoping they'd win. I love house hunters... I usually get a phone call or get distracted and end up missing the end. I hate that! haha
    Hope you have a good weekend. We are expecting snow and it looks like y'all may get more then we will.
