Friday, March 2, 2012


You know, for most of my life Friday was that magical day. The day that signified the end of the work week and the beginning of two days of freedom. Pictures like this seem appropriate for that.

Then (cue the dun, dun, dun, music) we turned into grad students and Ben started school, and Friday turned sinister. Now it's the day that Ben's home all day, and the day that is before the day that Tyson works another 12-13 hour day instead of a weekend. Of course I love Ben, but it throws the routine when he's home all day and can occasionally result in some major meltdowns from everyone (including me). Sigh....I keep telling myself it's just for now, but frankly that doesn't help. How do you guys feel about Fridays? Is it still magical like it was when you were younger?


  1. Everyday can be Friday when you're a college student :)

  2. Yeah. I always get excited for the weekend, but it's just out of habit. For the past five years, Jesse and/or I have worked every Saturday, and now that he's back in school, he studies all day. Plus, Sundays--with three kids and 9 a.m. church--are just exhausting.
