Sigh, a new week already?

I LOVE Friday, it has to be my most favorite day :) I just can't wait to hide in my house for 2- 1/2 days, grin, grin, OK that doesn't really happen. But just the thought that there are really no places I have to go really makes me happy. Saturday is cleaning day here, I can usually get the kids to help, even if I have to promise a cookie baking session when we are done. They LOVE messing up my kitchen ;) The Hubby is usually at work, or studying at work. So me and the Kiddo's just hang out. I enjoy having people over, that way I don't have to go anywhere, so we often have game parties, movie parties, party parties- I like parties :)- on Sat. night. Sunday I putter around picking up and doing laundry, trying hard to pretend it won't be Monday tomorrow.

Cause once Monday hits, everything is in fast forward again :( Up at 6 and everyone out the door by 8. Since I no longer home school the kids I feel guilty , so I volunteer at the school a lot. And because there are 3 of them there, and we believe in equal treatment ( it cuts down on the whining) I spend time in each classroom weekly. Besides that there is homework, TaeKwon Do, piano, cooking, laundry, watching my 6 month old niece, taking care of the doggies, yard, house, car, ( I am easily overwhelmed :) The bus doesn't come to our house, so we drop off and pick up (which I don't mind, I really don't like the whole bus thing for kids). There are always a million HAVE to do's. So that's why when Friday comes around I get so excited. And dang it, tomorrow is going to be Monday again already isn't it? Darn.

I had a five day weekend recently (took some time off from work) and even THAT wasn't enough!!

I always seem to start with the best intentions...I want to start baking, but I have to make a deal with myself "Clean the kitchen, then you can bake" ... By the time I'm done I'm too tired to bake! And some little gremlin messes it up behind my back anyway... ;)

For sure, I don't think my kitchen can stay clean for longer than 5 min. It's not possible :)

I love snowdays....That is my favorite, we can sleep in and have pancakes. As an ex teacher, I look at snowdays as a little present. To stay in warm and cozy.

Saturday morning we have ballet so that ruins the sleeping in nad having nothing to do.

I sometimes like the sigh of relief after you drop the kids at school and you feel a bit of freedom. I still have my baby but we are often two partners in crime with my shopping sprees.

lol, I hear ya! The older kiddo's are always complaining because my youngest get to do all the shopping with me, while they are at school.

Thank you!!!
