When are they going to make it a three-day weekend? Serious question. Two days are not nearly enough to get anything done.
Clearly you spend a day just ‘getting things done’ that need to get done. You know, the boring stuff – house work, gardening, cleaning. The necessities. Another day you spend doing something you want to do. Then we need that third day to spend just relaxing and getting over the last two days. Am I right?
Needless to say, this weekend has whizzed by much like my last weekend. Though sadly, it whizzed by for the other reason weekends whizz by. I spent a good chunk of it working and doing the aforementioned – ‘getting things done’.
Let’s have a quick run down…
Friday and the Weekend Begins
Friday night I thought I’d make the most of my evening and cram everything I could possibly get done that I needed/wanted to get done. Including my only trip to the cinema for the week to see Killer Joe. (Whose review will pop up here shortly.) In short. Good. But disturbing. (Guess what I had for dinner on Friday night? KFC. I must have been mad!)
Saturday and the weekend gets productive
Saturday was my working day. The afternoon of which was considerably more fun though. I was helping out fellow blogger, Dan from Fogs’ Movie Reviews spruce up his blog. Oh yes, that’s my kind of fun.
An evening out for a birthday dinner with friends and that was Saturday gone. Well before it was gone I had thought of putting a film on before I went to bed. Thinking, I’ll have a sit down then find something to watch. My sit down lasted considerably longer and include a nap. By which time it was most definitely past my bedtime.
Sunday and the weekend… is nearly gone!
Sunday was the day where I ‘got things done’. Started in the garden with the bi-weekly mowing of the lawn and lots of random bits of gardening I needed to get done. I don’t mind gardening really. It’s not sitting in front of the TV or laptop, so that’s always a good thing. It’s outside in the fresh air, so another point for it. I’d have happily spent the day cleaning up my garden, in preparation for my annual BBQ, but I still had a mountain of things to do!
I would have liked nothing better than to collapse on the sofa and just watch a film, but I was determined to get more stuff done. See, I’ve finally got my repaired laptop back and I have a newly acquired NAS box. So I was excited to get everything loaded up.
Have I mentioned than my laptop is now rocking 8GB of memory and a slick solid state drive? Oh yes… it flies! Beyond happy. Now, just desperate to get it loaded up so I can start using it and not struggle with my old laptop which currently takes longer to wake up in the morning than I do.
Though while sitting getting my tech sorted I did have Fast Five (Yes, I love this film.) followed by Jaws 2 (It’s been years since I last saw this.) in the background. I had no idea Jaws 2 was only rated PG! Colour me shocked.
Most importantly, booked my ticket to go and see The Amazing Spider-Man on Tuesday night. Oh yes! Had to make sure that gone done.
Then Sunday was over. A productive weekend, but ultimately, beyond tiring.
How was all of your weekends? Tell me someone did some couch potato-ing for the time I didn’t get to.
