I WANT MY WEEKENDS BACK!

I am so tired. And not just today, everyday. I wake up at 5am most mornings in the dark. I try to go to the gym just to give myself that little oompf throughout the day. I come home to shower, get the kids off to school, and then off to the office until at least 6pm (but it is usually later). Typically I work on weekends just to either get a head start on a project or to finish one. I want my weekends back and I want them now.

Back in the day didn’t the Almighty give us a day of rest? For what? So I can make lists of things I need to do on Monday.

Why do the days go so fast? It is already November! I still cannot get over the fact that summer has been over for 3 months. What happened? During the warmer months my husband and I would venture down to our boat as a way to escape and relax. Yet, I was never without my laptop or the blackberry. I cannot neglect my obligations and my responsibilities. But when is it time for me and only me?

Why is it so hard for all of us to step away from work, work, and more work?

Let’s all ban together and take back our weekends!
