Why does it seem that as I get older, my weekends become busier? I fondly remember a time, even as an adult, that weekends meant doing a whole lot of nothing. Sure, weekends usually involved a bike ride (on both days), but that burst of exercise early in the day afforded me the rest of the waking hours a solid justification for sitting on my fat white carcass the rest of the day watching a variety of televised “entertainment” that was of no real benefit to me or society at large. For me, that was a perfect weekend. Not any more. Today, I will be shuttling my offspring to various obligations, not coming up for air until much later this afternoon when it will be time to make dinner for friends coming over. Before I know it, Sunday will be upon me without a bike ride or a minute spent prolonged on the Davenport.
Before I get my day started, though, here are a couple of reminders for you:
- Many people have asked me how one could support those who have suffered much in California. As I started to amass a variety of worthy organizations, I realized that Joe Roberts had already complied such a list. You can check out his post HERE.
- It is also time to start thinking about the holiday season (yeah, I know) and every year I coordinate a Secret Wino exchange if interested in joining in, information can be found HERE.
Have a Safe Saturday!
