Plans, plans, plans

When did I get a social life with actual plans and where can I return it? I mean, seriously, I spent years doing nothing on weekends (3 hours of learning Mandarin on Saturdays from the age of 6 to the age of 14 does not count as doing ‘something’ because I would have much rather had been drinking acid or something more fun.

And now, suddenly, I have plans. Like actual plans. I’m kinda impressed (with the fact that I have actual plans). Check it out:

Friday – The day that my new doll should be arriving!*
Friday/Saturday – C’s birthday/sleepover party**
Saturday – Potentially volunteering***, date with Clay****
Sunday – Attending a parade with friends
Monday – Day of rest (it’s a long weekend because August 1 is BC Day), sleeping in

* She was released by customs at ~8am and arrived at the postal sorting centre at about 10am today. And since parcels are driven around by trucks rather than delivered by the normal mail carriers – I’m hoping she arrives tomorrow! I even have a bunny-earred hat waiting for her! (Sophie gets one too, in a different colour.)  I realize this isn’t really a “thing to do”, but I’m still super excited about her arrival!

** Chances of me writing anything tomorrow or Saturday is slim to none. I’ll try though! But doubt I’ll get any time to write, at least not on Friday.

*** Not sure yet. G said I didn’t have to go in, since I’m quite good with showing up regularly and I let them know whenever I don’t show up. She said she’d understand if I don’t show up, and she’ll just have to tell the charmers that I’m busy with another guy, hah.

**** Not sure yet. Depends on his work schedule. Boo.

More crafting is also in my schedule. As well as not doing a whole hell of a lot. I still need to wrap stuff tonight, for tomorrow. So I’m going to go off and do that. Maybe watch some tv, or just sit in front of a fan to cool down. It was 38 C today when I was leaving work. So hot… The nice thing about it being a long weekend is that more people will be taking the day off tomorrow (and Tuesday!). Everyone else that I share my general office space with is gone on vacation, so I’m going to get the entire space to myself. Which is rather nice, I’d love to have all that space to myself!

The downside is that I’m going to have to drive to Building B tomorrow. In a car that I’ve driven… twice so far? Yeah, that’s going to be swell. I’m concerned with the parking, but the driving should be okay. The times that I have driven that car, I stayed in my fairly well. I’m crossing my fingers for doing remotely well tomorrow in that car. Hopefully.

Questions:

  1. What do you have planned for this weekend?
  2. When’s the last time that you were tracking something in the mail that was coming to you?

    Awesome! I’m glad that you have some fun things coming up this weekend! I’d also love to see more crafts from you. You always have the cutest things.

    1. I’m singing at Mass on Saturday evening then going to stop by my parent’s house to see my dad’s cousin and his wife since they’ll be there. Then I’m supposed to go to an art show that evening because my music director’s paintings are being shown there. Sunday is just nothing. I’m excited.
    2. I track everything that I order but the last time I obsessed over it was when my camera was on its way.

    Sounds like a pretty good weekend!
    My weekend will probably be spent doing nothing. Well, a friend and I will be going shopping a little bit tomorrow..but that’s it. Not an all day kind of shoping either.
    Have fun relaxing! 😀

    It’s always good to have some fun plans in store for the weekend. Enjoy it! I hope you take photos of your new doll!

    1. What do you have planned for this weekend? Tonight is the No Doubt concert and tomorrow is the start of my family’s road trip!
    2. When’s the last time that you were tracking something in the mail that was coming to you? This week – I was waiting for new herbal neurotransmitter medication to show up. :)

    I have a bunch of boring chores and things to get done =(

    I don’t remember the last thing I tracked coming to me but I remember the last outgoing mail I tracked LOL. It was my transcript for Emily Carr.

    Hopefully you got your new doll. The parade sounds fun =). I really need to attend it one of these years.
