S A TUR DAY. Night!

So, what do you guys do on Saturday nights? We catch up on the Wednesday/Thursday sitcoms, if necessary, or watch a movie. I never stay up for Saturday Night Live any more. If my husband goes to sleep early, I catch up on Chuck, Parenthood, or costume dramas like Downton Abbey.

It's a life, I guess.

We had a sitter for a Christmas party last month, but we've been averaging less than one sitter a year for the past couple years, so I'm very likely to be catching up on laundry on Saturday night, and my husband will be watching Battlestar Gallactica on the beastly manual tradmill, and eventually we'll watch Monk or Hyperdrive together. The kids LOVE babysitters, so it's a bummer for them that we don't have sitters. I had a huge babysitting budget when we lived in DC, lived rent-free in a dormitory, nobody was in private school and the kids were small. Nowadays, my husband and I sneak out for the occasional date during school hours, either to the faculty club for lunch or to a matinee.

Friday night is a different affair. Theoretically, we're doing a monthly graduate movie at our house. When we get around to it, our next one is going to be The Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl. There are also theoretically graduate potlucks that we should be going to.

Right now, I'm watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs with my daughter. That's a pretty typical. Occasionally we go to someone's house for dinner, but we're pretty low key.

Yeah, we never get sitters either. I find it's just such an effort and so expensive! Plus my daughter is 11 now, so we're so close to being able to leave her home (we do during the day for things like my son's tennis lesson or psych visit).

C has traditionally viewed babysitters as free labor for the more tedious parts of her craft projects. Years ago, she had them turning out origami and stained glass coloring projects (the Dover ones).

I'm trying to decide whether or not to do a community garden. The ones close to me don't have space, so the only one I could get would be far from the house. It would be a small jot out of the way of my commute if I drive, but I'm not sure I'd want to have to keep a set of garden tools in my car for the whole summer.

We made valentines and watched the wonder years.

We never get sitters, but that's cause grandparents live next door, and watch the kids whenever we want.
