I don't like Saturdays

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I've decided I don't like Saturdays. I guess that means that I'm not a kid anymore, huh? Used to be my favorite day of the week!

For starters, the girls are home from school, which means they're up my butt all day, and bored out of their minds. My h usband is crankier, because he feels entitled to sleep in on Saturdays, so he's cranky when the girls get up before 9. I mean, come on; they usually get up a 7:30... that IS sleeping in!

Today, though, I made sure to stay away from work. That's a good thing for me; I tend to be a terrible workaholic, and can't turn off the work switch. I even shut down my google notifier for email so the computer won't boop when I get a work email.

I got tired of fighting the rechargeable batteries in my wireless keyboard, so I plugged in my wired one. Which is actually a nicer keyboard, since it's a FULL keyboard, so I have my number pad back. I missed it. It does lack some of the nice little shortcut buttons, but I can deal with that.

I also don't like Saturday because I tend to overeat; I tried not to, but poor food choices early in the day just led to too much snacking. I'm going to drink only tea for the rest of the night, I think.

Definitely going to get some more Reckoning in before bed, though; I need some relaxation time. Yay gaming!

    I can sorta empathize with your hubby. If has to work long hours during the week, Saturday may be his only day to relax and sleep in. Can you tell the girls to be a bit more quiet when they get so that dad can get some rest ? Let dad sleep in and you all can do something as a family later in the morning or afternoon.

How about a day trip ? that's something the entire family could enjoy on a Saturday.

I still use a USB keyboard. Never felt the need to buy a wireless keyboard or mouse.

    I know what you mean about wireless keyboards. I have my wired one since it is an ergo. My hands get cramped on those little straight boards. As far as saturdays, it's just another beautiful day.

    That sure doesn't sound like a happy family on the weekends.

    At least Saturday's lack of structure provides a change from M-F's scheduled hours.

    I know exactly what you mean. Saturdays are rough for me, too.

    I agree with being annoyed with the lack of eating habits are horrible on weekends.

    Weekends are harder because of the lack of structure, I agree. Hope you find a solution soon.

    Hang in there. And, I can totally relate all the way around. emoticon
