The End of a Long Weekend

Everyone always talks about what they are going to do for a long weekend, go away, clean the garage, arrange for a large rubbish skip and clean up under their house but no one ever talks about the end of the weekend.

What did I achieve?  I achieved three days of sleeping in.  OK one I missed out on, however, I had family coming for dinner that day and needed to do a lot of preparation.  OK not that much.  Being that I try not to cook at too much I bought a pavlova, bought the makings of salads and then the meat – simple!  My mother has us all over for dinner and she makes it a lot harder than it looks because she’s trying to cook it all and keep everyone happy.  Why does she do that?

All in all a great day was had by all and I feel confident now that I could do it again and hopefully soon.

My weekend was filled with shopping, relaxing, washing, shopping, and even more shopping but I loved every minute of it.  Why is it that so many people cram so much into a long weekend and when the first day back at work comes around they look like they could do with another long weekend?

My favourite day of the week is Monday!  Why is that?  Because it’s the one day that I am extremely happy and that “annoys the hell out of everyone else”!

So now I’m headed into a four day week.  Hopefully enough work every day to keep me busy and not make it drag and then the weekend will be on us again.

Long weekends are there to be enjoyed yes, enjoyed with friends and even a little alcohol but why make it so that you don’t remember it, or feel exhausted after it or even feel guilty that you didn’t do what you wanted to do because you wanted to have more fun.  Everything needs to be in moderation and until you realise it you really can’t appreciate or enjoy a long weekend let alone two days without work.

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. What do I want to do? I have my new house and am enjoying making it my own but now I am looking for the right job for me after 10 years of being "just a receptionist". I don't want to be "JUST" anything anymore. I would like a job that helps me grow personally, something that encourages me to learn but also where I can be creative and people appreciate me. I want, I want, I want but really I need to know that I am comfortable in my own skin and my life means something to me. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
