TGIF?

The magical week-end is upon us and I hear many of you shouting out—“Thank God it’s Friday!” 



There is however those voices out there that do not share the same scream. Even though there are many of you that are working a shift, society puts the norm in a large pocket and tells us to celebrate the week-end. God made the calendar, oh no, I forgot the Romans did. We are supposed to work a 5 day week and on the 7th day rest.  Well that is just not true and I for one am tired of being forced into the week-end box. I have spent most of my adult life working shifts, but for some reason the week-end rules and “Thank God it’s Friday” is strung on a banner across the sky. Who cares and what does God have to do with it anyways? Have a nice week-end can just as well be have a nice mid-week. Who decided that Friday is the end of the work week?  Was it God, or the Romans? Yeah ok I get it, majority rules but take a look around you, is that still true? How many of you are free tomorrow and on Sunday? What makes these days so special and who gets to decide the rules? Do we really need week-ends? Sounds like book-ends to me but I decide where to put them. So for all you that are working tomorrow and have to endure the “celebration” of someone else’s week-end, have a happy midweek.

My little guy doesn't have preschool on Thursday and Friday, so I think of those days as the weekend - that's when I try to relax and have fun.

I love the weekend. We always end up just having fun and being goofballs :0)

This weekend will be different though. On Sat. I'm playing my violin for an infant death memorial. I'm really nervous . . .

I get to sleep in, so that works for me!
I'll just say have a nice day and leave it at that.

HI, Sis,


Sounding a bit radical today... LOL. But you are right... Many people work weekends. But there is just something about Friday... It's always been my favorite day of the week. Even if I had to work Saturdays and many times I did, I still love to head out for drinks, dinner, or a movie on Friday night.

See you later.
