Monday: worked, met my co-release manager (who lives on the West Coast, in Seattle, but flies each week, this week to MN) -- I might sew & do some laundry tonight; I'm antsy.
Tuesday: more work ; after work kids & kids' stuff -- cleaning in the evening most likely
Wednesday: meet my boss's boss who'll be in town for the day ~ remember to dress even nicer then usual for work(!) She'll be flying in from the East Coast - Then, maybe rollerskating that night with the girls - ktig mentioned it & it sounds like lots of fun - from ~ 6:30 to 8pm, so if the kids are up to it (& if I am!)
Thursday: work & then work more until Midnight (Nov. minor release night) - working from home, course, after 5pm - la.
Friday: work, and then sleep early; big weekend (ok; I'll probably clean in prep for the party; heh) the likelyhood of me finishing the house cleaning before Friday? "chances slight" ha.
Saturday: 10am @ Calhoun square "brew ha ha" goes until 2pm - as mentioned by davedash sounds awesome - woot. (Buy icecream -- ) and Then (Nap w/kids) THEN: Bakin' with mrsmodew & aelburr (I Hope!!) I have to bake a cake (or cupicakes, either one)... that night, with or without company! heh. Cupcakes are more fun to decorate & easier to serve to kids, and have plenty left for the adults, too... - so I'm leaning thataway, actually.
Sunday: Athena's little birthday party - you're welcome to come if you would like - it'll be at 11am at our house ~ go for 2-3 hours depending on what the kids are up for. --- Sunday afternoon? Nap, I hope! *grin*
