Some weekends are simply great!

I've had a hectic but wonderul weekend.

1. Started on Friday meeting another couple for laughter, sushi and martinis.
2. Saturday spend a record amount of money purchasing (maytag) washer/dryer set, new phone for me and #1 son, both necessary purchases due to breakage.  I don't love spending money but it felt good to get both issues accomplished.
3. Went to the library on Sunday and found good books:  Leo and the Lesser Lion by Sandra Forrester, My Life in Pink and Green by Lisa Greenwald, Wild Girl by Patricia Reilly Giff, Love, Aubrey by Suzanne LaFleur.
4. Choose to cuddle with Peaceful Girl and watch a movie instead of Golden Globes.  
5. Got up really early to watch podcast of ALA Awards announcements!  Now I have more books to read!!
6. Spent most of today (Dr. King's birthday) with my mother because her birthday is also the 15th of January so I took her to lunch.  We sat and talked for 3 hours:)
7. This evening I have book club discussion at a friend's house on The Art of Racing in the Rain.
What I have not finished is Bryson's Thunderbolt Kid or the bag off lesson planning I toted home with me from school.  Oh, well--I had lots of fun!!

Hope you have had a restful, relaxing weekend!!

I loved Wild Girl and Love, Aubrey
The art of racing in the rain was good but sad.
I bet that new washer and dryer is quicker and quieter than your old one.

Maytag is the best! I know from experience.
