SOC/Weekends


I hate weekends. They are a slap in the face. A shoving it down your throat reminder of what I don't have. Of what we're missing. It seems the rest of the world is enjoying fun family activities-drive in movies, festivals in the park, lazy days at the lake. I should be use to it as it's been this way most of my parenting life but it doesn't make it suck any less. When they were younger it was easier to entice them with trips to the park, a walk around the mall or hanging out at the neighborhood pool. It felt a little less pathetic and made the long never ending hours seem a bit less so. Now it just feels like we are trapped. And Lonely.

OK, sorry, I don't know why my computer went wacky on the comments. It showed up as two comments, and then deleted both of them. *sigh*

Anyway, I had said that I thought I was the only person out there who hated weekends. I hate weekends because I always have to work. It depresses me to see all the fun activities that I never get to do because I'm stuck inside.

Weekends are not always a picnic for a stay at home mom either. Most people look forward to the weekend as a BREAK from their job/work. but I do the same thing. every day. No matter the day. I've often thought I should come up with some little thing that becomes my Weekend Tradition. Just a little something that is different from other days to make it stand out/more special. I mean, besides wine. haha

When my husband gets a weekend off, then we can have some family fun. If I am not too exhausted by then to enjoy it.
