Free Weekend

For the second time this month - no really it's happened twice! - I've had the weekend to myself. No kids, no husband...just peace and quiet. It has been AWESOME! My mom was nice enough to take the girls and my hubby had a boy's football draft weekend...I literally haven't known what to do with myself :) Twice in one month is a little too much though - but I'd kill to have this kind of time to myself once every couple of months!

Today I've been procrastinating on writing my lesson plans for this week, so I've been catching up on my TV. There always seems to be a bunch of stuff on the DVR that I don't make the time to get to. This morning I was catching up on "Merlin". I love this show...I've always liked reading stories related to the King Arthur tales, not to mention I'm a big fan of fantasy in general. It's a good show, and may possibly be the only one on regular networks that I can actually let my kids watch (seriously, have you seen the stripper-like outfits on 'Dancing with the Stars'?) I have to admit though, I think part of the draw is the BROMANCE between Merlin and Arthur. At any given moment you almost expect them to cry and hug each reminds me of those two guys on 'Scrubs'. I, for one, find it hilarious. Plus, in the last episode, Arthur has to go through this maze, and I'm thinking "How very Harry Potter of him!" (If you've seen Goblet of Fire, you know what I'm talking about!) Sometimes the attempts to attract the HP fans are very obvious, but I don't mind too much. It's still a cute show.

I really need to get to work...but maybe I can delay some more and kill some time by going to the store!
