Our weekends are pretty lazy. We often don’t even think about doing anything (including showering) until lunch. I’m okay with that most of the time. We work hard during the week and a lazy weekend is good for the soul. And I’ve seen people who pack so much into the weekend, it’s as stressful as the week. But sometimes I wish the weekends weren’t so lazy. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but now, I’m trying to do something about it, at least for myself. This morning, I was out of the house by 9:30, off to the post office and Staples. I came back and lazed around, but now I’m about to make lunch, do some laundry and make a run to Home Depot for some paint to begin a long put-off project. With Mr. Geeky sick, I don’t expect him to be active this weekend, but I hope the kids will kick into gear a little. They are, at the moment, cleaning the kitchen, but I’m hoping to recruit them to do some more things around the house. I think our balance has tipped in the wrong direction a bit, and I’d like to tip it back.
