a full weekend   1 comment

yes the weekend is almost here……forty nine minutes to go before my weekend starts.
Sigh
It will be a busy weekend.
too busy actually but it seems I can’t get away from those unless I leave the state.

tomorrow I am having three of my sisters and a niece come over for lunch and for a few hours of visiting.
this was one of my new years resolutions, to spend more time with my siblings.
My sister had Christmas so I am having this gathering tomorrow for the month of January, and hopefully my other sisters and niece will follow suit and take their turn to host a gathering.

we need to spend more time together because frankly who knows what tomorrow will bring?
life is short and we are all taking advantage of the fact that we are promised a tomorrow.
but what if tomorrow doesn’t come?
We will regret not spending more time with those we love.

And I have my grandson tonight and my two other grand daughters tomorrow night and I have to come into work and do the regular weekend check to make sure the school is safe and secure.

so much to do and not enough time to enjoy…….

don’t get me wrong, I want to have people over tomorrow and I want to have my grandchildren even if they do monopolize the majority of the weekend….

but I do miss the down time, the quiet time….the alone time…….

and as sad as it is, Monday morning at six am will be here before I barely blink.
Or at least that is how it will feel to me.

  1. Concentrate on what you’ve accomplished and not what you didn’t do. It’s wonderful that you had time with your sisters. I hope that continues. If you spend too much time on regretting the things you didn’t do, you’ll make yourself crazy.
    When 6AM rolls around, reflect back on the weekend and tell yourself that you are blessed for the time you had with loved ones. Then look forward to the next time you are all together. Use those good feelings to help you start your week.
