Monday through Friday – ugghhhhhhh, but Saturday and Sunday, “WOO-HOO”, are just around the corner ….. AND SO IT BEGINS.
We say the week begins on Sunday and goes through Saturday. Follow along, friends, I’m going to show you my week and see if you can relate. I shall begin with Monday – the “beginning of the week” for me – it is the day most of us begin our often dreaded work week.
My life is over….Oh, goodness, WHY is it Monday already? The weekend just flew by too, too fast! Can it please just be at least Wednesday, for Pete’s sake? Oh, the drudgery of working and surviving the rest of the work week and all the other household chores and errands that must be done.
This is going to be a longggggg week… and I have so much to do. I need to run to the grocery store and then run other errands after work. But, that FIRST cup of coffee, “battery”, “mud”, “Joe” – and it’s magical effects on me – tastes splendid indeed!
Wednesday, hump day, hump day! This cup of brewed perfection….. is just what the doctor ordered…. And I always ask myself, “why can’t they just figure out a way to shoot coffee directly into our bloodstream?” (I don’t know – maybe that would take half the fun out of it.) And, we’re halfway there! I can’t wait to see Sally and Beth tonight – something to look forward to and have a couple of laughs, too! I can’t wait – the workday is actually going by pretty quickly.
Thursday – Finally got some much needed quiet time and Bible time with the Lord… it’s like I’m in survival mode, my ammunition for the rest of the week. Can’t it be the end of the week already? I am old, old, old, and tired, tired, tired. I don’t know if I can make it another day.
Friday – Now let me tell you about me and Fridays – I HATE Fridays! You know why??? I seem to be the only person working Friday afternoons. I am 58 years old. Why couldn’t I have been smart enough to figure out a way to get out of working Friday afternoons?
Well, this feels like 3 hours and it’s only been 30 minutes! It must be 5:00 o’clock somewhere! Arrrrgh! – Why can’t it be 5:00 o’clock here!
But now, I am looking forward to getting into my PJ’s at 6:30 and in bed by 8:30 just to make sure I get enough sleep to be refreshed to enjoy the weekend!
Can you say, “WOO-HOO!!!????” (As you might have guessed by now, WOO-HOO is my battle cry!) Peaceful cup of coffee NOT at my desk. I can do anything I want on Saturdays! After I clean the house, I have plans to go out with my two daughters for lunch and then get a much needed pedicure. After that, I will again lay up in my favorite chair and watch TV….a state of total “nothingness” that I long for like no other thing in the world! And I am happy…. Mike is grilling dinner … and I love Saturdays…
Sunday…. Yes, yes, a day of rest! I don’t have to run around like a chicken without a head. Church… then maybe some nice pool time in the afternoon at my sister’s, some rest and relaxation, maybe later in the day I’ll lay around like a slug and watch a Lifetime movie (one of my favorite things to do).
And so we have it….Sunday night – WHAT? I have to ask myself again, “What day is tomorrow again??? Oh no! Someone tell me it isn’t so!!!” …. thoughts of the workload and workweek – “Incoming, incoming…. prepare to crash land…”
And then I think – well, my life feels mundane sometimes, but I have wonderful family and friends, two beautiful daughters and a grandbaby on the way. And I often say, “I like it when my life is a little boring… that means I am not in crisis!”
And so it goes…. My life in a nutshell! Living for the weekend, but remembering to enjoy the little differences that each day brings!
Thanks for stopping in, and I hope you have a great week!
