Hey Mom, I see you! I am you! It is 11:30 on Friday afternoon (as I write this post) and it it hitting me that I am going to be mostly alone tonight. In fact, I am going to be mostly alone all weekend! I can clean and I can work, but a girl can only do so much working. Am I right? So, I have gathered up the Fall Edition of Weekend Boredom Busters for Mom to help you (and Me) make our weekend fun and rewarding!
