Having passed through the second of the three gates, I’m girding my loins to prepare for the battle of girding my loins to prepare for Halloween decorations.
But I suppose I need to get through the “Christmas in July” events before I start thinking about that.
The big event this weekend is the “Toxic Waste Removal Event!” where we will be able to take our “Is silver cleaner supposed to be that color?” kinda stuff from under the back of the sink and plop it in the hands of a grimacing volunteer. “When did we buy silver cleaner? We’re not ‘hey, wanna buy some silver cleaner and clean our silver?’ kinda people.”
Other than that, we have a Saturday full of running errands to the Costco, the Petsmart, and other “has it been a month already?” kinda places followed by an evening playing board games and discussing the whole events of the week with friends in a basement.
And Sunday, dear Sunday, should be a day spent in complete and total indolence (and laundry) to make up for the hectic day before.
Which, seriously, sounds so awesome even though it feels like it is forever away… but I know in my heart that it will be here before I know it. Just like Labor Day.
So… what’s on your docket?
