cj's week



TGIF. When I was “gainfully” employed, that was a favorite expression of people at work. I guess I was a bit of a Friday freak because TGIF was not my favorite expression.

Don’t get me wrong. I was happy to be out of the office, but my weekends passed like whirlwinds. As a single mother, my weekends were filled to capacity with things that needed to be done around the house or with family or kids’ ballgames or grocery shopping, ad infinitum. I had to race to complete my to-do list in two days because my weekday evenings were tied up with college classes and homework.

I’m no longer in a company environment, yet I find that the habit has stayed with me. Instead of college classes and homework, I fill my weekdays and nights with gardening and writing. I can spend hours pulling weeds or working on the dialogue of a single paragraph. I can spend days and days on Internet research (of course, that “might’ include a game or two of Solitaire while I conjure a plot point or character flaw). It seems I am still racing through whirlwind weekends to get a to-do list completed. (Sigh) Maybe I’ll see you at the grocery store tomorrow.

I think I need a refresher class in time management.

Here’s hoping you’re doing better than I am.

Okay, you-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.
