Perhaps my love for the weekends started when I was a child. Every Saturday morning we awoke to the smell of Mom’s pancakes….oh how I miss those Saturday morning pancakes being cooked by someone else! Somehow everything smells and tastes better when you don’t have to cook it yourself. And then you add to that the fact that there was no school and a huge yard just waiting for you to come out and play softball and a driveway that served as a blank canvas for you to draw chalk cities and ride your bike on…ah yes, it is easy to see where my love of weekends first began.
It’s funny how as an adult the knowledge that the weekend is almost here helps you get through those long miserable weeks where you feel like you are about to drown. By Thursday morning you start giving yourself the pep talk…”Just one more day to go and then the weekend is almost here…” and it gives you just enough steam to keep going for just a little longer until that glorious thing called Friday finally arrives. And even though Friday is still a work day, just knowing that your weekend starts that night makes that entire day seem so much happier!
“It’s the weekend! The ‘responsible adult button’ has been switched to off!”
My hope for all of you this weekend is that your weekend may be full of FUN! The kind of fun you had as a kid out riding your bike or playing in the yard. And if you really lucky maybe someone will wake you up to the smell of yummy pancakes, but if not then maybe you can be the one to provide the yummy pancake smell to wake everyone else up 🙂
Here are a few funny/silly quotes I heard that made me laugh this week to help you start getting into your FUN mood for the weekend ahead:
“Dear Millionaires, if you don’t have a bookshelf that spins into another room, give me your money because you’re spending it wrong.”
“Cleaning the house while your kids are still home is like shoveling while it’s still snowing.”
“Men would be way more excited about cleaning if spray bottles made laser noises.”
“If we’re not supposed to have midnight snacks then why is there a light in the fridge?!?”
Have an amazing Friday because it’s almost the WEEKEND!! YEE HAW!!!!
