While you are at work praying for it to be 5pm Friday, Julia Allison, expert time management manager, is somewhere in a suburban Applebee’s enjoying a loaded twice baked potato. How is that possible? Because it’s Labor Day weekend, haters!
So! I arrived today in gorgeous, sunny Chicago, spent the afternoon and evening with my mom, walking our dogs down the beach, talking for hours. Dad arrived home from the office around 10, we all caught up, politics and home furnishings (they’re going through a renovation) were discussed, healthy food was consumed.
The deal for the rest of the weekend?
Thursday – meetings downtown, then hang out with Randi, then Rachel’s cooking me a special dinner
Friday – my Grandmother’s birthday, so I have to think of something special to do to surprise her, probably will involve extensive flower arrangements (any other creative suggestions? help!), then dinner with my family and Dan. Brother Britt & fiance Allie arrive later that evening.
Saturday – Chill with Britt & Allie in the morning, then head downtown to the riverboat architectural tour with CD, who’s home for the weekend. Then CD & I are headed to Rachel’s going away party (she’s moving to New Orleans!)
Sunday – Our church is holding its worship service in my parents’ backyard, so I have no excuse not to go 😉
Monday – Probably more time with my grandmother and my parents
Pretty chill, but a lot of love here in Chicago this weekend.
That’s right, the weekend now starts on Wednesday and goes through Tuesday. That’s just how Julia “YO” Allison ROLLS!
