The weekend is finally here!!  We don’t have too much planned – I got a new mop, so I’m sure we’ll be trying it out, and my husband has to make sure some of our electronics don’t have loose wires – they’ve been acting kind of funny lately.  We also plan on watching The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector’s Edition) [Blu-ray] since we just got it in the mail this week.  I’m looking forward to that – I’ve heard it’s great!

If we decide to venture out into the cold, these activities sound interesting!
