Relaxing Weekends? Hah!


I find it kind of ironic that now we have kids, the weekends are no longer the part of the week we covet.

Is Saturday the new Monday for parents?

I'm not begrudging the kiddies at all, but I find it odd that I now look forward to Mondays as a time to "unwind" and get things done. Today (Friday) is going to be spent preparing for the weekend - cleaning the house and decorating the kitchen for the party tomorrow...

A peak into this weekend:

Saturday:

okay, a bit of sleeping in can be done - at least until 7:30 or 8:00 now that lil' C can manage the remote control.
8:00 - 9:00 - Breakfast chaos
10:30 - 12:00 - Swimming Lessons
1:00 - 5:00 - C & A's birthday party with extended fam
6:00 - ?? New Year's dinner.

Sunday:

8:00 - 9:00 Breakfast chaos
10:00 - 1:00 - some sort of outdoor activity
1:00 - 3:00 - C's birthday party with friends
3:00 - 5:00 - some sort of settle down / party review
5:00 - 6:00 - dinner
6:00 - ??? - shower time and settle down for bed...

It's a tad crazy - what's planned for Monday you ask? Well, I haven't really had time to think about that ... probably some work and tidying up some of the loose errands coming out of the weekend.

The interesting bit is that this is going to be our life until the kids leave home... then, it's their turn! Bwa ha ha ha!!!
