{solsc} 6/31 #sol16 Good-bye Weekend


Good-bye
to those imaginary hours
that seem to stretch to 
infinity
on Friday. 
The possibilities are endless.

I can clean my house
write in my notebook
start another book
write lesson plans
grade papers

And then, when the work is
done,
I can
nap
visit friends
do a little shopping
play with Chloe
Reenergize

BUT
here it is on Sunday night
and my bag sits beside me
untouched
a bare sketch of lesson plans

Where did those hours go?

  2. That's the enjoyment of retirement - you don't lose those weekend hours. Hope it was an enjoyable weekend even if your bag didn't get opened.

  3. Hours evaporate on the weekend. Odd how that happens.

  6. Oh! I loved your slice today!! I too had such ambitions for today. I made a list of all the places/errands I needed to run and in the order I needed to go. But halfway into the day, I had only 2 things done and I was exhausted. It's 6:30 and I'm just now getting to my writing assignment for today. :)

    My bag is beckoning too...
    I do find that each week speeds by faster and faster. At this rate, summer -- with its generous hours -- will be here before we know it. I hope your weekend was a super one. And, you know what? It will all get done; it always does.
    I'm also reminding myself... :)
