Weekends are for?

Good Saturday morning to all you out there on the interweb.

What are weekends for?  I think about this a lot.  When I was a younger man, they were for fixing up the house, cleaning and organizing, and preparing for the next week.  Now that I am a little older, both my wife and I work full time plus, I think that has changed.  We now use the weekend to recharge.  But recharging sometimes means that all the chores have to be done after work during the week.  That is the bummer factor.  It takes me an hour to get home after work.  Which is convenient, because that is about the time dinner is ready.  After supper, I am not ready to much of anything.  the result?  A yard needs trimming, gutters need to be cleaned, and squirrels need to be evicted from my shed.  Regardless, the wife and I will be "Party Hopping" this weekend.  We have two birthday parties and the Pac-Man fight to watch.  Do any of the hosts live within an hours drive of one another? Nooooooo!!

Reminds me of the orange juice commercial that was on TV a few weeks ago.  The main character of the is having his status meeting in the morning before starting, and it is always bad news.  Today I will throw your paper in the bushes, you will get a flat, and your presentation will be lost due to computer malfunction.  The response?  I have had my orange juice, bring it on. So, as I sit here, drinking my orange juice, I say, "Bring it on"

Currently I'm in that "fixing up the house" stage of life, although I really don't enjoy it. ...gotta be done though!

Doesn't the party hopping stage come BEFORE the fixing up the house stage?? ;)
