Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

Weekends Fly Bye!

It always amazes me how on Mondays I often think that Friday will never get here. I blink and before I know Friday is here.

I love the weekends...and it should not take away from the fact that I love my job. I love teaching and I love working with my kids...but I love time off.

The problem with the weekends is that they go too fast. We usually spend Sat and Sun. doing errands and working in the house. Once Saturday is through it's almost as though the weekend is over. By Sunday lunch I am already thinking of the week ahead...getting my plans together for the week, laundry, tidying up, planning lunches, suppers, etc.

I think the weekend should be 3 days long., 2 to relax and enjoy and 1 to get ready for the week ahead. Don't you think that would be good?

Do you get the Sunday afternoon blues? If you do what do you do to feel better?

I also know that weekend speeding by feeling. Sometimes, like this weekend, when I have chores or the drudge of paperwork, it burns into time rather too effectvely.

However, the evening is yet young!

Thank you for visiting me. One of the joys of getting older you don't get Sunday blues - every day is Sunday. But I'll swear I've lost a day this week-end.

Hey, sign me up for 3 day weekends from now on :)

You are so right. I'm a SAHM, but weekends are busy still!

It's already after 3 here and I need to start getting things ready for next week and then do dinner, so that after dinner I can relax.

Geez, some days my only "sit down" time is when I'm at the club, on the recumbant cycle doing 10+ miles. :)

Great blog, I'm here via Michele

Now that I no longer work, I wish weekends would be shorter...because I love my alone time!

Oh, I DEFINITELY get the Sunday afternoon "blues"! Ugh. I try to combat it by spending the afternoon with good friends, mapping out the week ahead of me, watching a good movie, going for a walk/run, and just trying to keep my life in perspective - that I have a good job (even if I don't want to be there) with wonderful co-workers (I've had nightmare co-workers in the past), my health, food, a warm bed, etc. Yea, it's silly (and I don't have a husband & three kids to "deal" with :) ), but when I stop and really think about the rest of the world and what I have, it makes staring down the "barrel" of Monday a bit more bearable :)

I found you via your husband's blog...who I found via my friend Anna! This is fun stuff :)

When I am feeling the "blues" on any day, I try to remind myself of all that I have to be thankful for (either in the silence of my own thoughts...or, on paper. Sometimes writing them down has greater impact...plus, I can save them for reviewing on the next "gray day"). Sometimes the "blues" can inspire us to get our minds off of ourselves, and think of those less fortunate, and then DO SOMETHING good/kind/helpful for them. Sometimes they can remind us just to take good care of OURSELVES.
After reading a few entries in your blog, it sounds like you have plenty of demands on your energy/time/attention....on the other side of that same coin, that you have lots of reasons for a generous supply of genuine gratitude!!
