When Every Day is Like Friday

SO it's friday... and I'm reminiscing about how much I used to look forward to fridays.


....last day of work before the weekend...... just one more day before I could sleep in.... and of course... the anticipation of what the night would bring! Usually I'd be in a good mood on Fridays.... unless my boss was being a jerk.... but even then, I'd still be pretty chipper.... cause after all--- it was FRIDAY!


Then I started thinking... Hey... EVERY day is like that for you! EVERY DAY, I think about what the night will bring... whether it's a DRINK, an un-interrupted BATH, watching a movie or TV show all the way through, (the first time through)...some time with my boyfriend (who I happen to be married to!).... maybe getting together with some friends (even if only by telephone call)...

Of course.... I never really quite get to 'Saturday' in my Groundhog-Day-Style life.... My day free of work responsibilities and sleeping in never quite materializes.... and each day I wake up, I do indeed 'have to go to work'.


But like I said earlier... it's not that bad! Aside from a few rare 'fridays' that I have to really WORK at work... I pretty much get to dress casually if I want... goof around when the boss isn't looking, and then there's that whole 'anticipation' factor I mentioned earlier.

So you guys can have your Saturdays and Sundays..... and in my own way, I'll be jealous. But keep in mind that when MONDAY rolls around..... I'm in Friday mode!!!


have a great weekend, everyone!!!

I've got to tell you, I really envy stay at home Mom's. I stayed home for about 2 1/2 years after Max was born. I really miss it. It's my dream job. If I could do anything in the world that's what I would pick! I know there are days, and I remember them well, but over all I MISS IT!!! Kiss Rhena, cause you are the one who saw her crawl, you'll see her first steps, all of that, not some babysitter who can't love her like Momma does!

I work on the weekends, too. Cleaning shit and changing diapers and spoon-feeding... probably much like you do. Except, I do it for adults and, thankfully, I get paid.

You've got a great attitude about weekend jobs. I used to rely on weekend jobs while attending university and I found that I was missing so many family activities and bbqs. But, it was worth it in the end. What kind of work are you involved in?
