And now the weekend is here!
I used to relish my “weekends”. Back before kidlets, I never had the actual weekends off. I did, however, have two days off. And most of the time they were back to back. Those of you in “normal” careers won’t understand, but it makes a *huge* difference. I would always spend one of my days off cleaning & running errands. And I’d always spend the other doing absolutely nothing. I think there were more than a few of those days that I didn’t even get out of p.j.’s all day.
But, mommy-hood and being a “Home Executive” have changed that. I still look forward to the weekends. I love having more time with Brian. And I get to do more fun stuff with the kids. But, there’s not much relaxing in our weekends. Tomorrow, there’s t-ball and a birthday party.. followed by some crafting time with a friend and an event to support MS research. All of these are fun things that I want to to and enjoy doing, but they don’t recharge me.
What recharges you?
What is your idea of a good weekend?
Right now, Sunday is utterly unbooked. And I think that’s a good thing. I’m going to try to just relax and cuddle a little on Sunday 🙂
