Last week was a good one, work-wise.  I got a lot accomplished,  and the highlight was the retirement of a long-term colleague.  8 hours in the car put me home late Friday night.  I caught up with Hubbs but soon found myself nodding off at 1o:00 p.m.  The best laid plans..

Saturday rolled in with a flurry of activities as we prepped the house for a college football-watching-party.  Gabbing with my pals, I didn’t see much of the game, but the food  and company were great. 🙂

Yesterday, I was up & at it early, buying groceries, doing laundry and cooking for the week ahead.

And here we are again, at Monday’s doorstep. I don’t know about you, but I need a day between Saturday & Sunday.

Have a great week, peeps!

Friday Monday

  1. Sounds like you had a super-busy weekend, MJ. But a fun one, too!

    • It was busy and fun and a wee bit too hectic, considering the travel I had this week as well. One week at home this week then travel again the week following — busy times! MJ

  2. And so it goes. My calendar has a list of to-do’s and I will get pleasure in checking them off.

  3. Reblogged this on Aybhams Blog.

  4. I need a month between August and September. Fun weekends are always too short and work days always too long.

  5. Good question! My hubby has been working a lot of Saturdays, our “weekend” flies by much too quickly.

  6. I never have enough time on the weekend… I need three day off instead of two… Wishful thinking…

  7. Sounds like you need a day for “me” time….all your activities were fun, right?

  8. sounds like I wasn’t the only one who didn’t have a weekend. I’d promised my son-in-law I would help him reroof their house. Last weekend we did it. Fortunately he had some great neighbors so the job went well but I miss my Saturday “catch up around the farm” day.

    • That’s exactly it; next time, I might not have said yes to the football day. It was fun, and hubbs was delighted to have pals to watch the game with, but it took up any “extra” time.

      Those “catch up around the farm/house/home” days can’t be beat!

  9. Goodness, isn’t this the truth! Where does all the time go? Why can I never get enough done? Why aren’t the weekends longer?

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • I love my job, I really do, but I’m exhausted .. I think I need some time off … next to a big, fat weekend 🙂 Hugs to you in Ecuador! MJ

  10. Oh how I can relate! I can’t tell you how many Mondays arrive with me saying, “I need more weekend!”

  11. And yet, Monday arrives with unprecedented speed every single week and nearly ruins my Sunday evenings just realizing it is gone. Yikes!

    • I stopped letting Monday have that much power over my Sundays a few years back … but I do admit to noticing when it’s 2pm Sunday …. 🙂 MJ

  12. Yep, I ask myself this on a regular basis! Especially as we seem to be working away from home about every other week. I have two whole weeks in a row in my own nest…I’m excited to have 14 days in my own bed! ~ Sheila
