I definitely have a lot of plans. My kids will back home from their grandparents. I haven't seen them for about three weeks so I miss them very much. I think we can have a little party or a picnic in the park. I love spending time with my babies. But, because of their return, I'll have more works to do: cooking, cleaning, washing them after every walk (they always return dirty). But, anyway, that's worth the effort.

I don’t have any plans yet. Guess this weekend I will do things I usually do. Practice writing skill in the morning. Focus on my business in the evening. Having a coffee with my buddies or listen to some crazy rock music to keep my mind staying sane, IDK ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I haven’t planned yet anything for this weekend, but, I think I’ll spend it like what I always do at the weekends: first, On Friday morning, I wake up at about 8:30, then I have my breakfast with my family and I start doing some housework such as cleaning the ground, and cooking, I like this a lot!! In the afternoon, I have a nap or I study English from the web, and sometimes, I go for a run, this was how I usually spend my Fridays. However, On Saturdays, I always go out walking or sightseeing, here’s how I have been spending my weekends for this last years!!

I would like to go out but in this rare situation that we are right now, I have to focus in other things to do, so in this weekend I want to clean my house I will mop the floor, water the plants, do the laundry and tiny the rooms also my husband and me are going to Shopping and buy some food, drinks and some sweets for our kids and at the night I’m watching Netflix with my family and have a nice moment with them, for Sunday I will relax in the morning, take my breakfast, drink coffee and then at the afternoon I would study because I need to improve my English, then maybe start reading a book or something like that because in this quarantine we have to improvise some activities to do for not to get bored and to entertain mi kids without electronics devices which is the hardest task to do.

  I love weekend because I can spend with my family and friends. However, recently I can’t go out and meet my friends because of coronavirus pandemic. I’m at home almost every day. That’s why I have learned how to spend at home while having fun. This weekend, I have 3 plans. Firstly, I’m going to have a barbeque with my family at our yard. We will bake meat, seafood, vegetables and marshmallows while listening to music. It’s the most relaxing and exciting event for me. Secondly, I’m planning to do a lot of my homework on this weekend. They have been increased dramatically since the beginning of online classes. So, it’s kind of hard for me to finish all my homework. But I believe if I can complete all my homework, I can acquire many knowledges and grow. Lastly, I’m going to watch movies. I watch movies almost every weekend with my family by Netflix. I usually watch movies that make me happy and strong on Sunday. Because I can feel “I’ll do my best from tomorrow!” So, I’m planning to watch movies. I’m looking forward to doing them on this weekend. Even if we can’t go out, there are many things what we can do on weekend. So, it’s important for us to try anything and enjoy to spend at home all day.

In this weekend, I have many things that I have to do, and I want to do. I think I will do my homework in this weekend. I have a lot of homework because of the class can’t do in campus due to the coronavirus. There are many reports that have to write many words, and I have to prepare for my presentation. I want to go to shopping to buy Father’s Day present in this weekend. Last week, I was busy because of homework so I was not able to go to buy a present. I think buy a special tough rice cracker that my father love and I will make lemon no bake cheesecake because my father loves it. I want to do exercise. I’m not getting enough exercise recently due to coronavirus self-restraint so I will be going for a stroll or play exercise video game. The video game name is Ring Fit Adventure. This game is very nice exercise video game playing in home. Furthermore, I want to play mahjong. I am really into mahjong on the internet recently. There are some rank in that mahjong app. I want to raise my rank much higher. In this week end I want to raise my rank at least one.
