I'm not quite sure why we look forward to the weekend. In my experience there is more stuff to do on the weekend. Shopping, cleaning, shopping, laundry, shopping, cooking, shopping... so why would I want the weekend to come?
All week long I can get away with minimal cooking, cleaning, and shopping, but then the weekend comes and the house hunk thinks I should have time for all that stuff. Ugh.
Tomorrow we'll probably not go out anywhere because it's supposed to snow. Baltimoreans have no notion how to drive in the snow. They stomp on their brakes, slither all over the road, drive too fast, drive too slow and are generally pains in the butt. So I stay out of their way.
I learned that the hard way the first winter we lived here. We moved down from upstate New York. The first snow of the winter just happened to occur on a day that I had an early doctor's appointment. First I tried to call the doctor's office to ascertain if it was even open. No answer.
So my son pointed out that we might as well head out. We might be late but at least we'd show up. We made it as far as two miles away from home. My son had no problem driving. But the rest of the Bozos on the road were downright dangerous.
I told him turn around and go back home. As it turned out, the doctors and staff didn't get there until noon. So on snowy days, I stay home--away from the crazies!
Have a wonderful weekend!
