Today is my Friday

Even though I will have to work some tomorrow as well. Tomorrow is the big day. The boy goes under the lasers and comes out with 20/20 vision. I am really jealous especially because he has been talking about how he can sleep an extra 20 minutes and such. I guess also because my right contact happens to be making me crazy today. I am really happy for him and also happy that this will give him the 90 day medical hold and keep him home for the holidays at least.

I had book club last night which was nice, good book, "The Mermaid Chair" fast and easy read. Our next two books are "The Time Travelers Wife" and "The Kite Runner". I have both of these but have not read either so I am looking forward to both of them and I am going to present "The Time Travelers Wife" next month. I think they are also making a movie out of it so I will have to do my research. It was a nice group of girls though, about 8 of us so a good number too.

If anyone is a Kate Spade fan, she is having a sample sale through her web site. I picked up some notecards that were really cute.

My ta-da list is REALLY long this week, I am not sure if I am going to get to everything this weekend, I am hoping to but need to be understanding of myself if I don't. It has been a really hectic week. My sister and I are still not speaking which is a bummer but I think we just need space. I think she has a lot of resentment towards me, but it is for her to work out. She went from mom and dad's to college and roommates to a husband, and I think my freedom bugs her. We all make choices though. I will be at the boys for the next four days, so that is good anyway.

So much to do to get ready for moving and the holidays. I guess that is why the list is a little bigger at the moment. If I can get through the list it will make my move and the holidays that more organized for me though and will also help with a move so close to the holidays like that. There is a lot I need to do and get ready for the move, and with work being quite busy lately, it has not given me much time to get anything ready. I have ordered my invitations and holiday cards (thanks for all of the codes and suggestions MM). But there are still a million other things to do. Lists are good.

We are off to see the premiere of "Fast Food Nation" tonight and have dinner at one of our favorite places Bar Abilene, so that should be nice. Hopefully in the waiting room tomorrow I can get some work done. I have meetings in the afternoon, so I need to be ready for them, the boy will be resting, I just need to be there to play nurse in case he needs me.

If anyone has any good moving organization suggestions besides the usual ones, I would love to hear them. Also, I am going to be going through a big purging cycle once I do purge and could use some support. One of the things I have a hard time with is throwing out my magazines, and I have a ton of them. It really isn't very often that I go back and read them, so I guess it is about time. I have a ton of books too, I am thinking maybe a book swap may be needed.
