The Housewife's Weekend

Ya wanna know what I'm doing this weekend?

First thing on Saturday morning I'm going to vote. I vote early every election- it's the only way to go! No lines, friendly volunteers, and early "projected" results! Will you be voting this year?

Next, my husband and I are going to clean our very dirty house. It's in need of some heavy-duty TLC. Floors, bathrooms, dusting (I hate that part), windows and mirrors....the whole shebang.

And last but not least, the evening's activities are the best of the whole day. I get to go to this. It's a charity dinner and silent auction to benefit The March of Dimes. The Venetian is hosting. I'm going to write about the event in my new column, too, and thanks to some very helpful PR people (thanks, Gary!) at the March of Dimes, I get to meet some of the participating chefs that will be cooking all of our scrumptious food that night. I also invited my bosses, who are also my editors, from They are celebrating 18 years of marriage this week! I'm looking forward to meeting them. I'm excited beyond words, and a tad nervous. So, to ease my nerves, I have been making rules for myself all week to abide by that night....

Rule #1: Don't drink too much. A tipsy columnist is never a good thing. I wouldn't want to spit/slobber/trip/say something stupid while I'm there. Nope. No good. Even though, since I never get to, I will probably let loose a little bit.

Rule #2: Even though I want to, dont eat too much. I don't want to walk around like a bloated cow for the last half of night. There will be so much incredible food there, this is going to be a hard one.

Rule #3: Practice discretion. Sometimes I will say something really crazy, just because I'm crazy like that. I don't want people to think I'm a least not yet. I'll save the freak talk for another night.

Rule #4: Buy something at the silent auction. This event for a wonderful cause! Who wouldn't want to help premature babies? Anyone whose a parent can sympathize with this cause.

Rule #5: Dont pee my pants. I know I'm going to be really excited, and really nervous....

So far, that's all I have. I'm sure I'll have 20 more by the time I get to the Venetian. I plan to take lots of pictures and blog all about it. Stay tuned and wish me luck!
