Well it’s a long weekend for Canadian Thanksgiving. I sure don’t mind having a long weekend again. After working from home for about a year I was missing out on the joys of having that extra day off. When you work from home it’s really just another day of work. Well there are work at home jobs where you still get long weekends, but not when you’re not quite working full time and you’re going all out on your blog.
This weekend I’ll be sure to take some time to relax and not worry about fitting in work. In fact I’m writing this post on Thursday night to ensure that happens. Once I’m done this post I hope to hammer out my Monday post. Or maybe I’ll get lazy and schedule one of the guest posts in the queue.
I’ve actually got a bunch of plans lined up for the weekend. I’m trying to con my friend and his girlfriend into baking a turkey. There’s a good chance the turkey won’t happen, but my girlfriend and I will still honor them with our presence I’ll hold up my end of the bargain and bring the pumpkin pie. I’m just not sure if that goes with sushi if that’s what we resort to. In all honesty sushi actually sounds better than turkey. I do love eating a big turkey drumstick caveman style though.
We’re also planning on making a day-trip up to Whistler to visit my sister and do the tourist thing. It’s been a while since I’ve gone up there, but it always makes for a good weekend getaway. We would stay longer than a day but arranging for a cat sitter is a bit of a hassle. I realize people would rather enjoy their long weekend rather than committing to feed someone’s spoiled cats.
