Living for the Weekend

I hate to admit I live for weekends but...
I live for the weekends.

Now the younger crowd says they live for weekends and they mean it in a completely different way than I do. They live for weekend parties, nights out, cruising chicks (do they still say that?), concerts, going shopping in the malls, and no telling what else. They just want to fill up their weekend schedule with a continual search for fun. And I am sure they think they have found it but really.....

I am sure there was a time in my life that most of that stuff may have interested me...not all of it, mind you, but some of it. As I got older my weekend parties became watching a movie with the grandsons until way late sometimes as late as eleven, nights out became a quick drive into town to pick up pizza, cruising chicks became surfing the internet, concerts became listening to the boys playing guitar hero, shopping in the malls became history and puttering in the garden ruled.

Slowing down?
Nope! I am more active and busier than ever but it is just directed differently and I don't think I have ever been more satisfied with my life.

Twenty years ago, I would never have believed it.

This weekend will be filled with family! What fun!

  1. For me, unfortunately, living for the weekend means getting everything done that I am just plain too tired to do during the week! However, I do try to hit Barnes & Noble just to relax. I think I am more like you with this weekend thing!
