Four Day Work Weeks Go Faster

Well of course four day work weeks go faster than five, it is simple math. I promise I am up to date on simple math (complex, too for that matter) but what I am referring to is exponentially longer than one more number. The three day Memorial weekend was a much deserved and rewarding break from work coupled with a four day work week to follow. I can hardly believe it is Friday again and I am looking forward to yet another relaxing weekend to recharge and recooperate.
My Michael celebrated his official birthday last night with me, his best friend and (much to his chagrin) his little brother. To celebrate the arrival of his 11th year we ate at Blue Coast Burrito, a scoop of ice cream at Baskin Robbins and ended with Pirates of the Caribbean....which I really did enjoy, by the way. Not only because I have a HUGE crush on Johnny Depp but I truly appreciate his acting ability and I think he exudes a crazy amount of sexiness. The latter mentioned is way way down on my list of reasons....extremely unimportant :)
I really wish I was starting another three day weekend but that cycle doesnt start until next week. I think I only have about a half day of work today so maybe I can start a little earlier than anticipated.

1. Hey! I am doing the best I can considering the circumstances so give me a break.

2. Are the lies people tell truly a lie if they contain one kernel of truth.

3. Eat your favorite foods at least one time a week. Especially if it makes you happy.

4. One of the worst feelings in the world is to feel like your constantly in the middle.

5. First thing to note: I have got to be serious and regimented in regards to eating better for me any my children and exercise. I truly want to do another triathlon this fall but I am not even close to being ready.

6. No matter how hard I try, it has been very difficult to find a solid distraction.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching my kids at soccer practice and going out to dinner with a friend, tomorrow my plans include soccer games and heading out of town to shop and see family for the weekend and Sunday, I want to have a safe trip back home, spend some time with my children and get ready for another work week!
