Friday Five: Skipping School

Since I'm not needing my days to carry over to next year, I decided to take advantage of my last possible day to miss school for the year (things get crazy after today!). Here's what my day off entails:

1. Garage sale with Whitney and Cody. Take two. We tried this a couple weeks ago, but it wasn't a huge success. This morning wasn't either, but I've at least got a little cash in my pocket. Maybe tomorrow will be better?

2. I'm about to do a little menu planning/grocery list making before I set out my plan of attack for the plethora of errands I'll be running. This is what I get for trying to fit everything into one day.

3. I am cutting off my hair. I called my amazing hair chica yesterday (shout out to Salon Willow!) to set up an appointment, and the soonest she could get me in was in like two weeks. No biggie. But then she mentioned that she might have something earlier if it was during the day. I went out on a limb and told her I was taking off on Friday, and as the hair gods would have it, she had cancellation at noon. Score! Here's what I'm thinking. I am beyond tired of my long hair. I want it short. But I don't want the instant regret that inevitably washes over me the second she chops the first chin-length layer. Is this a happy medium?

4. Pantherettes Spring Show. Our drill team is amazing, and the girls are just sweet as can be, plus they offered free tickets to all teachers this year. I'm actually looking forward to it! My parents are keeping Avery, so maybe we'll go for some coffee afterward or something.

5. The rest of the weekend seems promising (and completely busy, but what's new?). A preview: garage sale take three, trip to the vet, pick up the last piece of our living room set (finally), lingerie shower, choir banquet, open house for Kendra and Carlos, and I'm sure other grandiose events await as well.

I hope your weekend is fantastic!

Sounds like a great, if full, day. I like your haircut idea. And I wish I had the problem of more cash in my pocket--I usually find plenty of things to buy at garage sales. Maybe you hit an off day. Church sales are among the best I think.

That's an unexcused absence, ma'am!

1. We tried for a garage sale but it's been busy planning other things and no one wants to help me. =( We nixed the idea and I'm freecycling everything. Today, the city where my parents live had a city-wide garage sale where they list the address of all who are participating and had a map for everyone to go shopping.

2. Menu planning/grocery list making has been such a great help for us.

3. That's a good cut. We need to see before and after pics. I'm in need of one again, but not sure how my sister wants us to do our hair for the wedding so I'm holding off. We may take Melody for her 1st cut tomorrow!! EEekkk!! Her baby hair!

4. That's nice that teachers get free tickets. for the spring show. Enjoy!

5. That's a busy weekend. Hope you survive! =p I think this is the only relaxing weekend we have until after the wedding festivities in July. Nothing more relaxing than mowing the lawn and steam mopping the house. =p Oh the joys of being an adult and homeowner.
