Yeah, Weekend getaway for ME!

There are a group of Moms that have been going to a cottage retreat, twice a year, for the last 7 or so years. We started as scrapbookers, making it a scrapbooking retreat. Most of us are not as avid scrapbookers anymore, probably because our kids are in the "don't take my picture" age. So now a few bring their gear, but most of us just "retreat". (eat, drink, talk, hot tub, drink, eat. Repeat)
I haven't been able to go for the last two times, so I am pumped! I get to go this weekend!!
The plans are made:
Kid care - check
Pet care- check
Gas in van - even got it before the price soared today - check
Plan to bring quilting stuff - cancelled. I've finished 2 quilts already this week, and I figured since the other ladies aren't "sew-ers", they'd probably not get a "rush" from hearing a sewing machine all weekend. Unlike quilters, who, as you know, consider that sound to be music to our ears.
Trip to Walmart to buy a ball of yarn and a crochet hook - check.
Try to remember how to make crocheted dishcloths - how hard can it be, it's a square. Duh.
Packing several quilt magazines for everyone to drool over - check.
I just have to pack the suitcases, and woohooot!
Now all that is left is a short chat with the weatherman - who has predicted snow tonight and tomorrow - it better not be enough to snow me out of going or snow me in when I get there (as enticing as that may be.)
So, I hope you have a good weekend. I will!
