Weekends no longer mean sleeping in, lazy mornings with the paper, gardening or the decadent afternoon movie (or afternoon delight for that matter!). I look forward to Mondays. I drop the kids off at eight, but I'm actually quite lucky, I have a little time before work. So there's time for vacuuming, computer, grocery shopping... all without the relentless interruptions. Believe it or not, it's quite peaceful.
A little back story to this: February thru May is our company's busiest time and it requires M. to work nearly seven days a week, which means I'm a single mom most weekends, so Mondays are also time to savor an empty house. No kids, no husband, just a couple of weary dogs and cats relishing their break too.
