What Are You Planning For the Weekend?

I’m sure no one is reading too many blogs today, but I was just curious to find out what everyone is doing for the weekend. I’d like to hear your plans.

Mine are simple. Tonight I will be visiting a friend’s house. He has a little soirée every Christmas Eve for family and friends to stop by and say hi. It will be fun. I’ll get to see his parents. I don’t get to see them often enough. It’s a long story, but he and his parents are very important in the life of the Mad Mind you all read.

I probably won’t be out too late as Sunday will be very busy. By 1pm I will have all my kids here plus one grandchild. We won’t eat until later though. We’ve all decided to open gifts first and then we will eat. That’s always nice for me because I don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn.

And here's a little bit of advice for those of you who may have dysfunctional people associated with your family. The moral of the story is…….. Don’t accuse anyone of something horrible if you can’t respond to texts or phone calls.

So what are you doing the rest of the weekend?


  1. spent last night at my mom's new house. Today we're having the family over for Christmas dinner and present openings. Most of my family is law enforcement and we usually work on Christmas. I'm lucky and it was my holiday off. Tonight I'm making my cats curl up on the bed with me to watch Care Bears Nutcracker and maybe another xmas movie or two. Have a great holiday!!

  2. Off to the sports bar in a few moments, to see my Steelers, who won't be on TV here. Then to Pinky's brothers house for Christmas Eve festivities and present openings.

    Tomorrow, a quiet Christmas morning w/ Pinky, then off to MY brothers, where my parents will be in from Florida, for a day of eating, drinking, yakking with my nephews and general mayhem. Love it!
