birthday weekend to-do list
posted by soe 1:55 am

What’s a girl to do on a four-day prime number birthday weekend? Hopefully some of fun things:

  • Spend some time outside. There won’t be sun, but there will be fresh air.
  • Take part in a virtual Galentine’s Day romance author event hosted by one of my local bookshops.
  • Read! I am enjoying my current book a lot, and I have a bunch more promising titles queued up in the physical TBR pile. We’re expecting an ice storm tomorrow night, which means Rudi might not be able to make it home until Sunday evening.
  • Finish a sock.
  • Chat with friends and family.
  • Watch tv shows and movies I like. If Rudi doesn’t make it home tomorrow night, I’m thinking the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice or Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants may be in order. If he does, I’ve put in a request for the final Lara Jean movie on Netflix. And Sunday night has good PBS shows and Queen Latifah (all of which can be watched a later night if I get to spend the night talking to friends instead).
  • Eat pizza for my birthday supper!
  • Go to the beach. I’d love to make this happen Monday or Tuesday, but it’s not a trivial adventure and so depends on a number of variables. If it can’t happen, I’m voting for a dvd-and-baked goods marathon.
  • Paint my nails.
  • Sleep in on a weekday!
  • Collect birthday freebies. (There are a surprising number of loyalty programs at local restaurants, ice cream shops, and bakeries I enjoy that offer you free goodies on or around your birthday. I’m absolutely cashing in!)
  • Manage expectations. I love birthdays, which sometimes means it can be a bit of a letdown when real life interferes. It’s a pandemic year. Life is hard and different, and comparing Sunday to any other year (or my hopes for an ideal one) will only lead to tears. I will assume that none of the above things will happen and will strive to be grateful if some of them do. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

What’s on tap for your weekend?

Have a wonderful birthday . I love my birthday, so I think I get it. Sleeping in on a weekday is the BEST. I hope Rudi gets home
