I am busy this weekend, and it’s good.
It’s easy for me to get stuck when I don’t have a support group, and just spend days at a stretch in my jammies.
Now there’s nothing wrong with restful days. I need them. I need days when I stay home and do, well, nothing important.
But this is a 3-day weekend. I just can’t spend all 3 days at home doing nothing. So I am lucky to have made plans for all 3 days.
Tomorrow I am going out with some friends. We plan to hit Dallas Grilled Cheese Company for lunch and head on over to the Perot Museum. Then for dinner I am meeting some other friends for tacos at Taqueria Taxco.
Sunday I have a ceramics class at Dallas MakerSpace followed by a visit with a friend.
Monday I am going to get my hair cut then out to dinner with the roommates at Red Lobster.
Yes it will be a few dollars, but that’s what money is for. It’s a tool for doing the things we need to and want to. I will get some bills paid and I’ve ordered some art supplies to keep me busy. It’s all good. Busy is good for me.
I just need to buy a newspaper so I have something to protect the table top while I paint or do other art activities. I don’t want to get gunk all over the carpet. I suppose I should work outside, and I just might if the weather is suitable. I have a kit with alcohol inks that I’d love to play with somewhere that I can’t damage the furniture. The front porch is probably a good option.
Tonight is shower night, then set the alarm so I get on the road at an appropriate time tomorrow. I’m looking forward to this weekend.
