....and I'm not talking about some historical artifact or something. This weekend is a rare thing in that I have absolutely nothing that I have to do. A weekend where I don't have at least one thing planned is very rare and the timing couldn't be better as the next three weeks are going to be crazy (and of course I'll blog more on that later).
So what plans do I have? Well, I'm going with my mom to visit dad today. He's adjusted well to the nursing home and is doing good. Then tonight I am participating in my first-ever live draft for a fantasy football league. This is one of the things I do that my wife thinks is terribly geeky, but I'm a fantasy sports nut. I play football, baseball, basketball, and hockey every year, each to a varying degree. Since three of those seasons overlap, its not unusual for me to have four or five teams going at once. However, I've never actually participated in a live draft, as I am always busy, but this one is timed just right. While I'm doing that I will also be watching the Steelers preseason game against Minnesota. It just might be football overload, but I'm ready for the season to start.
Sunday there's nothing on tap, but I imagine I'll do something with Lori and maybe try to finish up one of the books I'm reading. I've spent more time in the evenings lately watching the Olympics than reading, but I need to get back on track because Monday is the start of a crazy three weeks.
