It’s been many years since I had been working in 5 day week Companies and for me an off on Saturday too means the world. Saturdays are reserved for the washing, cleaning, shopping etc. which piles up over the entire week.
It gives immense sense of peace to the mind on Friday evenings that now I have two days in my hand to complete many tasks kept pending at home front, I get time to spend with my children, entire two days. Now that my elder daughter is in high school and she has school on Saturdays, I also get to be at home when she comes back from school and have lunch together, believe me it’s a huge thing for me and my children.
The entire week we are together only till around 6.40 am or so in the morning because by this time both of them leave for their respective schools and both of us, me and my husband also leave home around 8 am, we come back around 8 pm at night, pick up the children from my Mothers place. Once we reach home then there is a rush for completing homework, preparing for the tests , the hustle and bustle for cooking dinner and whoosh! The day is over.
The silver lining of it all is the Saturday and Sundays that shine bright at the end of the week for people like us. I am sure that for stay at home Moms also the weekends must be special time, what with all the family members present at home or the entire family going out for shopping or picnic or even something as mundane as running an errand becomes special when you do it along with your family, isn’t it?
So how do you spend your weekends, do you also rush through the week like me or you are lucky enough to enjoy each day? What is your take on the weekends?
