TGIF - Fun Filled Weekend Ahead

I'm just babble bloggin' today...so let me just start by saying, I don't really like weekends that are jam packed with activites. It leaves little down time. I am beginning my weekend tonight running tons of errands. Just when I think I have my afternoon planned out so I'm not driving back and forth across the twin cities, I think of somewhere else I have to go. I will be a baking machine tonight. I have to make 2 desserts and a salad for our family reunion that is on Sunday. I won't be able to finish all 3 items tonight because they require last minute drizzles or dressings, etc.

Saturday will be a unique day for me. I will be attending a birthing class with our best friend's daughter (16 and due in January). She asked me to be in the delivery room with her, thus the need for me to attend the class with her. I am not sure if I am prepared for this challenge or if I need to prepare for this challenge. I always thought my first birthing class would be for the birth of my own child. I will make the most of it, after all I am there to support her during this difficult time in her life...which is about to change drastically!

Once the 3 1/2 hour class is over, I head home to load all of my baked goodies and supplies for the Sunday reunion. The reunion is held in the town where my Grandpa and Dad live about 2 1/2 hours from here. In the past, I haven't always been excited about family reunions. Meeting people for the hundreth time that you hardly ever see and never remember meeting...you get my drift. But I am excited to see my Dad and Gpa. My Dad and I along with one of his cousins are in charge of the reunion; so we have to set up, prepare, cook and then clean up afterwards. All before an exciting drive back home, back to reality.

So, it doesn't look like I will be doing any card making any time soon :( Have a great weekend everyone!
