It's the weekend!
A friend and I were talking recently about weekends, and how when everyone says "Have a Great Weekend", we smile and say the same, but inside we are thinking:
5 baskets of laundry (broken washer)
clean out the refrigerator
bake for a party
buy birthday gift
cook and cut veggies for week
change beds, etc…
Don't get me wrong, we don't save all of our chores for the weekend. But this is what's left after going strong everyday til bedtime.
And right now we are also, cleaning out closets, my husband and son have sheet rocked/painted a bedroom, and then there's the S N O W.
So I guess what I am getting to is the fact that "weekend" has a different connotation for everyone.
What do I wish it could be?
I adore puttering. Rearranging things on the fireplace.
Tidying the kid's rooms.
Hanging pretty things on the walls.
Planting seeds for the garden.
I am all about the puttering.
I feel like we seldomly get to do this on the weekend.
My daughter was sick with an episode of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome for the last two days, and playing Go Fish was such a joy. We laughed!!! (in between our fake British accents because we were so exhausted and punchy).
While this winter has made walking so difficult due to the fact that we do not have anywhere to walk, I miss it! Just a 30 minute walk clears my mind and puts me in such a better mood!
So, what are your weekends like? Busy? Slow? Productive? Social?
Share with me!!
