No school today, tomorrow, or Friday. A really dedicated woman would put that time to good advantage and get herself caught up on the classes and reading she's behind in. Whoever said I was dedicated?
The weekend started off beautifully last night. I was invited to see an operatic singer, Measha Brueggergosman, perform at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater on campus, with a couple of friends and classmates. I thought she was awesome. I really enjoyed her performance very much (I think my seatmate feared I might burst into song, but thankfully I still have some of my faculties and was able to restrain myself). Afterward, we all went to a local pub and had a glass of wine and nice conversation. It was a great way to begin a weekend dedicated to appreciation.
And, now to clean house, do dishes, do laundry, go to the grocery store (fighting the maddening crowds), make beds, cook and generally prepare for my kids' arrival this afternoon, and turkey day tomorrow. There is, truly, nothing I'd rather do today.
Saturday is my best friend's 45th birthday. She's been begging me to drive out there (Chicago) to help her celebrate, but I don't know. I mean, 45? No one celebrates 45! ;-)
Schoolwork be damned! (Are you, like me, beginning to think that maybe that's my motto? It's not, really!)
