So in the grand scheme of things, Fridays have always been my favorite day of the week. When I was a child, it was no school, as a teenager and young adult, it meant going out and having fun and no school, and as an adult-adult, it means no work for 2 1/2 days. Yes my friend, 2 1/2 days. I count the moment that I get out of work until 10pm on Sunday night as my weekend.
Now, granted in the last 20 years, I have worked on and off on weekends as nurses usually do, and in the past 1 1/2 years, I have worked weekends again. As this is my official weekend off, and have to work Saturday (to fill in for missing home nurse), I am putting a lot on this friday. I put a lot on every friday.
Friday night is my favorite. No work in the morning. Sometimes, I will stay up unusually late (2-3 am) scrapping or reading or watching tv and go to bed and pop up on Saturday am feeling great! I try not to cook on Fridays. I usually call it a "make-your-own" night or if I am feeling incredibly generous, I will spring for FF and make my lean and green for myself. Sometimes hubby and I will take an after work nap and that is usally relaxing too--that usually is for about 1 hour and the kids are playing, reading, being with friends, so it feels good to relax after work.
Hubby will do his own thing into the evening and I get my time. Uninterrupted and mine, all MINE. I usually do not schedule housework, homework, working out at the gym or work late on fridays. Occasionally, I end up running kids around, but am trying to reserve that time for myself on a regular basis. Like those fridays. Love them!
Tonight I have plans to clean up my scrap room,, reorganize my clipitup and perhaps make a layout or two or three. I also need to make some cards for at work. I need to make welcome, best wishes and more birthday cards. They love those at work and I like to have them on hand for my coworkers. I hope to set up a card box for all to use as needed. I do not want to charge anyone for the cards, but will take donations--only cause I do not make the envelopes and they usually cost. I think it is nice and goodwill-promoting hting to do here so I will keep it up!
Got to work the job now. Hope the day is a Fabulous Friday for everyone! Love and hugs.
