Weekends rock!

So... I have decided that I absolutely love long weekends. In my last job, there were weekend work hours so although we got the time off, it was never all together. Here are the fun things that I have discovered about not working weekends:

  1. You see your neighbors... and don't resent the neighbors that are having a backyard bbq still going on at 11:00 on a Saturday night... you roll with it.
  2. Coffee on a Sunday morning relaxing is heavenly.
  3. Everyone else has the weekends off... I have had more knitting dates and bbqs with friends instead of always sending regrets. Colour me happy, my extroverted little self says.
  4. TGIF takes on new meaning. It's all about making it to the end of Friday for your mini-vacay!
  5. Getting together with your old friends from your old work has suddenly taken on new proportions... it's kind of a pain to try and find that works for both parties.
  6. Relaxing over the weekends is fabulous, going to work with a clean house on Monday is great and a little weekday preparation means that the weekend is actually fun! (or productive when you are staining your fence...)

Enjoy the weekend. And relax and enjoy the two full days away from the office.

Enjoy kiddo. I love week-ends so much that I decided to make life a week-end permanently. I'm loving not being 'wakeful and driven' during the last week of August. All those happy shoppers that smile back at me when I'm shopping must be retirees as well.

I miss long weekends.
I wasn't even aware of this one till someone mentioned it the other day.
MY days just all blend together!
