Weekend Warriors

The person that invented the 5 day work week needs to be shot. I spend all week creating lists of all the things that need to be done at home and then practically kill myself trying to get it all done during the two day weekend. There's simply not enough time to get everything done and sadly it's the kids that suffer.

Most Saturday's start the same with Mandy and I having a group meeting to discuss all that we must get done. Gutters need cleaning, car needs an oil change, birthday party @ 10:00, would like to grill out tonight, grill needs cleaning, need to put away rest of boxes, take boxes from old house to storage, go get that fridge we were promised, change the church sign, play ball with the boys, fix the fence, hang a flag, buy the boys birthday presents, plan birthday party....literally that was our list for this weekend.

What got done today? The gutters got halfway cleaned. The grill got cleaned. Most of the boxes got put away. So that's 2 things that got halfway done and one that got all the way completed. That leaves 11 things to do between church services tomorrow.

Oh and JOY TO THE WORLD we lose an hour tonight!!! The boys don't understand why they gotta got to bed earlier tonight which they won't and why they will have to wake up earlier which we will all pay for the rest of the day. Tomorrow I think I'm throwing the list out the window!

I don't know if this is better or worse - but I work a 7 day work week... 7 days on, 3 days off, 7 days on, 4 days off (rinse, repeat).

It's nice having three and four day weekends (every weekend) but the trade off is 7 days in a row before you get one.
