Off the clock

I am not sure if any of the great GTA area bloggers are heading to LifeFest this weekend, but I am! And, the best part is that we (two friends) and myself have booked ourselves a hotel room and we are making it a little weekend get-a-way. We will trip around LifeFest and fill our bags with all the freebies, attend some of the presentations and workshops, listen to some of the speakers like Jann Arden and Jane Fonda, and generally do whatever we want for 24 hours! This will also include lots of eating (not so much drinking since we are all sadly not that kind of crowd) oh but we can eat. This will be followed by sleeping, maybe 10 or even 12 hours. We plan to go to the spa too. Bring it on.

While I cannot wait I am a little stressed making it all happen, if you know what I mean. We have a school council function Thursday night so I will be out late on my last night at home. Then there are the arrangements for the girl, who is picking up who when and all that. Naturally, Papoosie Girl's asthma has flared up just in case I needed something else to worry about. But, once hubby gets home from work Friday he is on his own for the weekend and it was actually his idea. He wanted me to get away for my birthday, but this seemed like a better idea to combine it with the show.

This is my fourth time going to the show so I am really looking forward to it. It is a lot of fun to wander around and check everything out.

So friends, I will be back next week. I think Rosebud is due for a post. That and the damn music meme sitting in draft. Toodle-loo for now.

Have fun. A spa? 12 hours of sleep? Jann Arden? Eating? Sounds like nirvana.

Wow, this does sound like heaven ... Forget the spa, my idea of a great weekend is one where I get to shower on Saturday AND Sunday. Food, girlfriends, freebies, Jann Arden ... sweeeeeeeet!

Good luck! Have fun! I'll hold down the blogosphere while your gone! Everything will be fine. Don't give us a second thought!
