I have too much to do this weekend.  I was talking to a friend at work and he asked me what we would be doing this weekend.  I proceeded to tell him my list (i love lists - don't you?)
  1. look for a place to live
  2. prepare a Sunday School lesson
  3. memorize lines for a skit (work thing - long story)
  4. prepare for a stampin class for next weekend
  5. clean house -
  6. find boxes to start packing
  7. grocery shopping
My friend asked me if I was going to get any sleep this weekend - I said - oh yes...I am going to sleep in on Saturday.  I love snuggling under the layers of covers and dozing until I really feel like getting up.  I just call it another weekend in the life and times of the Curtis'

I had bookgroup last night.  We have such a good time together just talking and comparing notes on "family" and activities.  What I love most is that we actually discuss books.  This month we read The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  It has been on the best sellers list for quite some time.  Although it is an ok read - I don't necessarily know why it is on the best seller list.  I guess the best seller list has more to do with marketing than whether a book is that good.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the read.  The author had a tendency to build up to a "moment" and then nothing would happen.  There were a couple of chapters I wondered why they were there.  If she would have followed up with the incident it would have made a lot more sense.  It was those build ups that kept me reading to find out what was going to happen.  But I had to create my own resolutions to some of story lines.  The characters were redeemed and ended on a good note.  I love happy endings..period.  Would I recommend it...sure.  But I wouldn't set high expectations - you will probably enjoy it more.

Well - I need to go round up something for dinner.  What sounds good to you?  I can always eat a burger, but that isn't on the menu, so I am off to find something healthier.

Ta Ta for now
