My Personal May Sweeps

I don't know why I always say October is my favorite month. I mean, it is, until the end of April, when I become giddy about May and all it will bring.

Besides the obvious (hopefully good weather, the best TV of the season, and the start of the summer blockbusters), I always have a series of events that allow me guilt-free selfishness. We have something awesome every weekend this year!

May 2 is my local chapter meeting, and it starts half an hour late than it used to, which means I don't have to miss the early soccer game or the meeting, or any parts thereof.

May 9 is Mother's Day.

May 13–16 is our annual writers retreat, and Number Two's last soccer game is the 16th, after the retreat ends, hallelujah.

May 21/22 we get to see my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew, as well as my cousins and their new babies (and the adorable toddler brother) and my aunt and hopefully uncle and grandfather.

May 29 is a City Islanders game. The season started this past Saturday, but the next home game isn't until the third week in May (which we'll miss, but that's fine, more important stuff going on!). That is also Memorial Day Weekend, so there's that day off of work/school.

The not-so-great part of May? Well, May sweeps means the best TV (ideally), but it also means finales. Supernatural only has 3 episodes left, and by the end of the month, LOST will be done forever. :(

But that's a small thing in the grand scheme of awesome. What are you looking forward to this May?

I can't say, but I'm definitely looking forward to something. I'll tell you in June. ;)

Okay, okay, I AM looking forward to my annual Mother's Day brunch with my mom and sister. And I'm looking forward to the birth of my fourth great-niece or -nephew. And I'm looking forward to celebrating one of my kids' birthday. But that's all I'm saying. For now.

You. Are. Such. A. TEASE. :)

Now you'll be disappointed when you hear the news. A big build-up for not much at all, LOL. My comment on FB was actually totally unrelated to the hint I left here. Had to pop over and try to alleviate at least some of your curiosity...

LOL Okay. But it doesn't have to be a huge thing for the teasing to be effective. :)
