Depressing Fridays

Sometimes Friday’s arrival is a joy, the work week has gone well. Everything you set out to do was completed with bells on. You have stunning weekend plans which you are totally prepared for...

For me more often than not Fridays are just a source of debilitating stress. Work goals that did not get accomplished. Weekly status notes highlight your failures, and as the end of the week approaches, debug gets more frantic and mistakes are made. Packing preparations for a weekend or evening trip I am not ready for. There are chores around the house going undone all week that now have to sit over the weekend.

What are weekends for you? Do you use the extra time to catch up? What do you spend time on, work or family responsibilities?

About 3 out of 4 Fridays I wish I just had the whole night to veg and de-stress from the weekend. But it seems 4 out of 4 Fridays have something planned already.

I use the weekends to relax and spend around the house with family. Unless we go to Grand Forks...but we relax there too ;)! I think down time is very important...but as we speak I am planning to get the boys into Tae Kwon Do...which is 2 days a week...its funny b/c I have been putting off have the boys in extra activities for fear they will feel burnt out. But we are going to try this and see how it goes. But my family and I do appretiate being home.
