Plans and fun

This is going to be a good week. We're 41/2 weeks to house day, so lots of packing this week. We sort out the last thing with the mortgage this week too, which will be both a relief and a giant weight around our necks... Wednesday is Halloween, and we are planning on staying in, cooking, and watching a couple of scary movies. I've never seen the Shining, so maybe that one and then the Nightmare Before Christmas to bridge the gap between the holidays {which is not scary, but is whimsical and delightful, just as important}. We are also having our book club on Friday night, discussing Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking. I'm going to make a big lasagna for that, and we always have a potluck format for everything else, which is nice for the hosts.

Tara and Marc are coming to stay with us for the weekend {hurrah!}, then we have my aunt's party and family dinner, then Sunday night we are going to see the Weakerthans. I have to set up the office as a guest room, complete with lovely linens and pretty things.

Best week ever. I can't wait. And I have two days of no work to attend a conference. Even better!!!! So many fun things to plan and do!
