Here in Canada it is Victoria Day weekend this weekend, the coming Monday is a statutory holiday here.
I took this Friday off. I dislike clients coming in to get stuff done before the long weekend and waiting until the last minute, usually Friday afternoon, to do it. I took Friday off so someone else can deal with those situations should they occur.
I am trying to get away for a weekend trip. My Friday will be reserved for dealing with errands for my mother. There are certain tasks that can only be done during a weekday. My Friday will just be doing work of a different sort. Then the weekend is mine. All mine.
There likely will not be a lot of future weekend trips. These days I spend Saturdays with mom. I have less time to do things. Everyone knows gas is damn expensive. Everything else is expensive as well. I am not sure how anyone manages to afford anything these days.
There is rain forecast for Saturday/Sunday/Monday. I do not really care. I need to get away and do some things to get my mind off other things.
Why does it always seem like one has to do a lot of running around to get a lot of things done just so you can spend a few days not doing anything? One of those little life mysteries.

It is like everything started to turn green overnight. I really noticed it traveling to see mom this weekend.
I spent most of the weekend with mom. I am concerned about mom. She is having some minor issues with living on her own. I would like her to consider moving into a place where she can be looked after rather than looking after herself. She does not get around as well as she used to and I think it is becoming incrementally worse. She seems a little smaller. I think she is coming around to the idea of moving but it might be a tough sell.
I stopped to see a friend on the weekend. He lives across the road from where my good friend that died last September lived. My friend's widow and kids moved off the quarter a few months ago. He had a motorcycle that he wanted to pass down to his son, his intention was to buy another one, and when his son was old enough they could go on rides together. I found out the bike was sold. If I knew it was going to be sold I would have bought it and held it for his son. Some of what is going on bothers me, the sale of the bike certainly did. Everything else is being parted out and the land will soon be up for sale.
Enjoy your time while you are here. Make your intentions known and put them in writing. Otherwise there is a good chance no one will respect your wishes when you are gone.
