I don't know that we have anything planned for Saturday but Sunday is a family reunion. This should be interesting. It's at some dude's house that I don't even know or couldn't point out in a lineup. (Assuming he committed a crime in which he would be in a line up.) I think I'm making chocolate peanut butter cupcakes. I've got everything on hand in one form or another and I just don't feel like buying extra to make something. I know, lazy. I can slap 'em in a tin, cover 'em up and leave them there when we sneak out.
I wish reunions were like they were when I was a kid, up through my teen years. We had them at a great private housing addition on a lake where my aunt and uncle live and all of the old people were fun loving and played games. Now most of them are gone, some don't come anymore claiming they're too busy for 2 hours out of the year and everyone just kind of sticks to their small family cliques. I think this is where the term "put in an appearance" applies...assuming we don't get lost in the back hills of the area and end up head cheese.
What are your plans for the weekend?
