Weekend Plans Anyone?
February 19, 2016 2:41pm CST
Well, the beloved weekend has arrived. And with it, I'm feeling slightly less than enthusiastic. Although today is a typical Friday (school, yoga, home,) tomorrow I work. Granted, I NEED to work, but I do it so infrequently that when it rolls around, there is a bit of dread. The work isn't until 3:00pm, but it has its whole set of difficulties. The event is at an art museum, which is cool. However, the parking will be limited. Thus, I have to park elsewhere and take a shuttle. I'm not sure how much extra time to allow for that. And since I prefer to be early or on time, I'll probably allow more than enough time which cuts into my day. So yes, I'm being a bit of a complainer. Then, my sunday is ruined by a meeting. I hate meetings. They always take too long. People talk too much. This one is more necessary than the last one we had just two short weeks ago, but I guess I'm a bit annoyed that I had to have 2 Sundays within 2 weeks of each other ruined. The meeting is in the middle of the afternoon which will mean i can't go to my yoga class. The last meeting, I was at least able to stop by the gym, but this one is going to be too long to even allow that. I may try to go before the meeting. We'll see. Plus, the weather is supposed to be gorgeous all weekend. And my weekend is taken with STUFF. I know that's life. And I hate to be a complainer. So forgive me please! And tell me, do you have anything good happening this weekend?

@jillybean1222 , good weather and having to work on a weekend = right to complain :-)! My weekend was hair disaster, stressful news twice, and then a good Sunday. I hope you found some time somewhere to enjoy a bit of your weekend and the weather. :-)

Well, I am not working this weekend and that is good. Anne is part of a Tai Chi demonstration program with her teacher at the Asian Celebration today and Sunday. I will go tomorrow. I am going to a poetry reading done by my 90 year old former prof today. It is sunny, so far, here. I hope the day and the work goes well!

I took someone's Sunday afternoon shift at work, so that they could attend an important family gathering. The best part of it for me is that its only a half shift and she is working my full shift next Wednesday. I hope that you find some enjoyment in your day when you're not busy with the meeting on Sunday.

My schedule is quite packed in these weekend as well, as compared to my normal days. On Saturday night, we went to a Buddhist temple to take part of the Chinese New Year celebration, we spent 5 hours there, though we were really tired, the children were happy. It's Sunday morning here, and later we'll go for another Chinese New Year celebration very soon, the children will be seeing lion dance there. After that we'll visit my aunt, as a tradition to visit her during Chinese New Year as well. After these two days, I guess the busy period of Chinese New Year will be over, and we'll be back to the normal easy staying-at-home days. Hope your weekend go well and not as bad as you thought. Though I think some meetings are necessary and effective, some are really wasting time.

Well just be thankful you have work and can earn some money. Sorry it has come on the weekend though when you rather be doing other things. I'm grateful I have a Monday thru Friday job so I can have my weekends free. I hope the meeting goes by quick on Sunday so you can enjoy the rest of your day
