Weekend home alone

Samantha is visiting family in Bolivar this weekend. That leaves me home alone and up to my own devices. Friday was mainly computer work. Today was mainly remodeling work. Sunday will be some finishing work and clean up; I also need to do some enhancements that John requested for his site. That will complete the weekend :-).
