"Look out, weekend, 'cause here I come" ~ Debbie Deb
Fridays once held the promise of a relaxing break. Just the beginning of an escape from the workweek. A party or two. A drink or five. Brunch at noon the next day. Lazy strolls through shops. A power nap. Some spontaneity, perhaps. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Fallen from the tree of youth.
Even though my weekends are now the oranges to yesterday's apples, I look forward to them with the same enthusiasm. I get two full days with my loves. My T. My Q. My Z. I get to cuddle and carry and fill my nose with their scents. I may not get much rest, but I get a whole lot of excitement. Life with two little ones is filled with possibilities. With new journeys. Always with something to ooh and ahh over.
When I think about my weekends now, I don't get too nostalgic for the "good ol' days". Of course I think about them and miss them at moments, but I mostly think about more moments like these. Soaking up the sun while I soak up time with my incredible family. Or, fun pict-nic! As Q would say.
