Weekend Plans Post: What You Gotta Do Before What You Get To Do
This is the weekend BEFORE the big celebratory weekend. Next weekend will be all of the grilling hot dogs and meeting with friends and having a glass of something on the deck and talking about how pop culture was totally better back in the 90’s.
This weekend is not that.
This weekend is the weekend where you know that you’re not going to get anything worth talking about done next weekend, so you have to do everything now. Costco for steaks and hot dogs, PetSmart for the cat supplies, and King Soopers for the stuff that goes bad after a week but that’s okay because it takes you 6.5 days to get through it all anyway (eggs, milk, those hard little rolls that could cut your cheek if you bite into them wrong but, inside, they’re fluffy like a cloud).
On top of that, there may be a reason to go to Whole Foods and/or Trader Joe’s for the wacky little things that you never know would make for a great thing to throw into a bag for when you go over to friends. “Hey, everybody! I brought dark chocolate peanut butter cups! We can make ice cream shakes with them!” Because, seriously, there’s nothing else that those dark chocolate peanut butter cups are good for.
There’s also the whole issue about how doing fun things with fun people that you like very much is wonderful, it’s also something that kind of drains the batteries… so it’s good to charge the batteries up beforehand and, surprisingly, going out and running three errands and coming home with a Yaris full of groceries is one of those things that makes me say “you know what? Yeah. I got a lot done. And I didn’t even have to talk to anybody beyond standard protocol.”
As such, I’m really looking forward to that.
So… what’s on your docket?
