did you do this weekend that was enjoyable?Spent time with my boyfriend :) It
was great because we don't get to see eachother as often now that we're back in school.
I managed an uninterrupted two hours with a good book.
On Sunday I went to a close friend's baby's baptism and then I went to my uncle's (by marriage) installation into his new church (he just became a Minster). It was quite a happy and rewarding day!
Two things: I spent Saturday going up the Columbia Gorge and into the High Desert, and on Sunday I went to Silver Falls State Park and walked under a waterfall.
Rented 7 comedies and watched them all with friends and punch n pie
Played miniature golf with my family. It was a lot of fun :)
I went camping!
friday night, my friend leslie and i went to the weymouth high football game. those are always a night becuz me and her go to a different school now and its so much funn seeing our old friends that we dont usually see anymore. but friday night was different from the others cuz my old friend mike was there. me and mike used to be good friends for a lot of junior high, but we grew apart a lot after our friend moved away and i left the school. but i hung out with him for the whole night and it was so much funn. we were remembering our old times and we were updating ourselves on the past two years and we were talking about how much we both love rancid and we were walking around the track with our arms around each other...awww i miss that kid <3
I stopped by my nearest outdoor sports store - Appalachian Outfitters - and bought a copy of Paddler magazine.

I bought a new pair of running shoes - Saucony, the only brand I wear.
I was so drunk that someone was able do convince me do do a line of cocaine. I didn't feel anything that spectacular, so now I'll never bother to do it again. Since coke has such a high potential to wreck a person, I don't mind that my friends had me do it at a time when it wouldn't feel very amazing. I'll stick to my Bud Light, thank you very much, and, yes, it was an enjoyable weekend.
I went to work, which doesn't sound like fun but it was nice to just get away from the TV for a little while and interact with people and not think about what happened for a few hours.
umm... let's see... I went to this local fine arts festival with my friend Kerri. Ate lots of junk food and bought some jewelry.
I had a nice evening in with my boyfriend, the tv, and some cheep alcohol ... we watched naff comedy shows, and then a reminiscent program called "I love 1994" (so we spent an hour disagreeing with the tv), and then the new version of the three musketters was on, so we watched that too :) ...
Marshalltown/Ames, IA USA I attended a quiet backyard barbeque with my coworkers; everyone in our department went. We brought our children. Being around children can be very helpful right now, because they show us that no matter what sadness and misery we are suffering, we still have duties - responsibilities - and it's still okay to find ourselves laughing over some silly, unimportant thing - even at such a time. The event was a bit subdued, and none of us could be 100% "at ease" yet there was a stronger sense of ties with one another, and I do believe we were all feeling just a little bit closer to one another; closer than we had been even a week ago.

Preston, CT USA I don't know...I read a little bit...which was a temporary escape from the nonstop details of the death and destruction in NY and DC...still, at night those images on TV have filtered into my dreams... Frodo
age unknown, parts unknown My fiance and I talked. We talked about the future, our past without each other and what we enjoy doing together. We don't get to just sit and talk since he is studying so much for his CPA exam. But when we do, we talk for hours and enjoy it very much. Stephanie, 25
TX USA i saw melissa etheridge in concert - i was one of the 10% or so that were of the male gender. . mothmc, 37
Los Angeles, CA USA I turned off the radios (I don't own a TV), changed into my pajamas, crawled into bed and read all day Saturday and Sunday. Laura, 36
Lowell, MA USA My husband, the baby and I drove to my parents house where we picked up my mother and sister. Then we all went to the ocean. We watched the waves, we thought, we talked, we watched the baby, we healed. Deb Nothing, really. Last weekend was pretty sucky, but the forthcoming one will be much better. Shanna, 16
Cardiff ENGLAND nothing. Patty My sister and I went four-wheeling in the country around my grandparents' house, just getting away from it all in the peaceful, wide open spaces of good ole Iowa. We played "pooh sticks" on the bridge over the creek (that's when you drop sticks off one side of the bridge and see whose stick comes out on the other side first), climbed around in dry tributaries, explored forgotten cemeteries and schoolhouses, and basically pretended we were kids again. It was great. Kristin, 20
