An Agendaless Weekend

Acknowledging that every Mother-Daughter relationship is different, I seem to have gotten a lot of support for my "Mother of the Bride" theory on wedding stress. I may need to add an addendum on how a really relaxed bride can mitigate the effects...but I will continue to work on that.

That brings us to the weekend...which is going to be my first totally relaxing one in kind of a while. Last weekend was the visit from Munchkin's French Boy, the weekend before was Chicago, the weekend before that The Boy's sister was visiting, so it has been a while since I had a weekend with very little on the agenda.

So what is on that agenda? So far, golf and horses...

As long as the weather holds up, and it is not looking promising, Munchkin, Smoking Hot Roommate, Big Sis and I are going to open the golf season tomorrow. Unfortunately, that is looking kind of unlikely at the moment, although we could play on Sunday afternoon if tomorrow doesn't work out.

Also, the Kentucky Derby is tomorrow, and The Boy (and some others) wants to go out somewhere to have a few beers and watch it. Not sure whether I will wear a stupid hat;-). I imagine we will probably hang with his friends for most of the night...actually haven't seen them much lately, so I kinda miss them:-). There is also a Bruins game tonight and a Celtics game tomorrow and always Red Sox games and I imagine I will end up watching some of those at some point, as well.

Munchkin and Smoking Hot Roommate (and Papa Bear's golden retriever:-)) are running in a 5K road race on Sunday, which is super adorable:-). It's Munchkin's first race, so I think she is maybe a little nervous about it, but SHR is going to run with her the whole time, so she should be fine. I feel like it is a long way (over 3 miles), but she runs so much for soccer and basketball and lacrosse and other sports that I think she will be ok. Those long legs will help her:-)

I think that is about it. Other than that, I will just be doing my best to avoid the Swine Flu...have a great weekend! Happy May!

Oh, Munchkin will be SO fine for the 5K. I bet she finishes in 35 minutes or less!

have a wonderful agendaless weekend! I need one of those! And good luck to Munchkin. She'll do great.

She will do great! She is an excellent runner, and I think she will probably be able to finish in less than 30 minutes. When I have taken her running in the past, she doesn't have much trouble with 9 minute miles, but we have never gone a full three miles at that pace, so I think we will be slower than that. But she won't have much trouble finishing, I don't think.
