The Weekend of Canceled Plans

I went into this Memorial Day weekend with A LOT of things on my plate. I was exhausted just thinking about all of the plans I had. But this was the weekend where one thing after another got canceled, so that by the end only about 3% actually became a reality. Instead, I've been slacking off and hemorrhaging money at various Memorial Day sales. This is what I should have been doing:

  • Volunteer at the Botanic Gardens - Canceled due to my extreme laziness
  • Hair Appointment - Canceled due to a house showing at the hairdresser's
  • Gym - completed
  • Buy a new Camera - completed
  • Grocery store - completed
  • Laundry - completed
  • Shopping for new shoes and purse - unplanned but completed
  • Buy a few new books at Borders - unplanned but completed
  • Watch The Country Girl (which is a surprisingly great movie! It's Grace Kelly as you've never seen her. I highly recommend it!!) - unplanned, but totally worth it!

  • Church - Canceled due to another attack of my extreme laziness
  • Lunch date with a fellow from Virginia - Canceled due to him taking his mom to the ER
  • Walk to the video store to return my movies - completed
  • Detour during walk to talk a nap in the park - unplanned but necessary
  • Sunburn due to nap in the park - unplanned and undesired
  • Dinner date with a fellow in town from Seattle - Canceled because no firm plans were in place and he talks about himself in the 3rd person with a Fernando's Hideaway accent. ("Armand is being in town tonight. Would you like to get together with Armand?")

All in all, it wasn't a bad weekend. I just didn't do as much as I thought I would. But tomorrow! Tomorrow is when all of the really important things are happening!
  • Gym
  • Super Fun Time Pool with Camie and Anna
  • Slurpees (can be combined with either the item above or below)
  • Pedicures
  • Possibly see a Movie
  • Drive to the Outer Banks to begin my WEEK LONG BEACH VACATION!!!
So, as you can see, there had BETTER be a higher success rate. If nothing else, there will be the trip to the beach. All hail the beach! And All Hail Week Long Vacations!

You are going to LOVE the Outer Banks! Sad that we couldn't be there at the same time.
