We all know what that M is standing for, right kids?

WHAT a week. While I am always supremely grateful for a federal holiday and a shortened work week, trying to cram 5 days of work into 4 never ceases to kick my ass. And I feel like I have had my ass kicked from here to the moon and back again this week. I had a meeting that just got cancelled (side note, who the EFF schedules a meeting from 4-5:30 on a FRIDAY?!?) and while I should be using this reclaimed time to get a few more things brain feels like scrambled eggs. I think I have officially mentally powered down for the week. I don't even think I could tie my own shoes right now, that's how brain dead I feel.

As a result, I am feeling beyond grateful for this weekend. In the good old days of my mid-twenties, I am sure I would be planning some debaucherous weekend with friends who had had similar craptastic weeks at work. You know, back when we could go out and get tore up from the floor up two days in a row and recuperate in time for a new work week on Monday morning. If I tried that now, I'd probably be sick for days on end.

So my extent of exciting weekend plans involve cleaning and organizing at MVP's apartment. And I should maybe be a little embarrassed to admit I am stoked about it. Not that his place is a total disaster or anything, but I think it would help to get things in order and do some fall cleaning. I think it would help him feel a little more at ease to have things tidy and organized. And I think I would feel less stressed about my stuff being there if I didn't feel like it was in the way.

Now, I didn't go forcing this on him or anything. I just suggested that since neither of us had travel or weekend plans this week (for a change!) that I could help him with that kind of a project if he wanted. And let's be real, it's easier to help someone ELSE throw THEIR old junk away than it is to convince yourself to part with YOUR OWN old junk. Yes, I know I need to do a bit of cleaning and purging myself, but that will have to wait for another weekend.

There will also be lots of football to be watched, maybe something cooked in the crockpot....but damn if I am not super excited to not have anywhere to go or anything I HAVE to do this weekend. A break is long overdue.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Man you are right: it's so much easier to clean someone else's house than your own! And there's nothing like a relaxing weekend with little on the agenda. Hope yours is the best!

  2. That sounds like a heavenly weekend. Maybe you should go to a Haunted House? Worth it. xo

  3. i totally agree - it's so much easier to help someone get rid of their junk! you're a real gem for helping! :)

  4. Sounds like a good weekend to me!

    WHO DOES plan a meeting from 4:30-5:00 on a Friday??? The worst meeting time ever!!
