This friday as every friday I start the evening with a couple of tv shows it is gameĀ“s with music involved. I have some snacks and a god bottle of soda. I really enjoy god entertainment like kareoke. We have a couple of those shows every weekend. I also like to do it myself. But I do not have the things to use. I wish I had, but those is to expensive for my and I feel it is a luxery thing I can not afford. I really do not understand why things that we can enjoy and have some god times with family and friends have to be so expensive. I guess it is the teknology that costs. Tomorrow and sunday is workdays for me. But in the evening they show a entertainment that a lot of people really enjoy and we even talk about it at work after. I do not like Idol, but I like so you think you can dance. What do you prefer?

Unfortunately I do not do much during the weekend. On Friday when I get home from practice, I go on the computer and stay on, then have dinner and go back on until I go to bed usually. On Saturday I have practice in the morning, then i usually go on the computer for most of the day along with some other things. Then Sunday I mostly do homework, laundry and possibly cleaning or errands and then when I finish I go on the computer for pretty much the rest of the day. Then school Monday ;_; Ya...I do not have much of a social life do I =/.

Many people have a social life online. Nothing wrong with that. When I am home from work, I start with cooking dinner, than I make the dishes, put on some coffee and spend the rest of the evening online. I make shore I have done the housholdwork during weekdays, so when I have my weekend of can spend pretty much all my free time online. Nothing wroing with that at all.

Some of us is not just for social life with other people in real. Being online means more silence and I like it when it is silent around me after a hole days work. some people need to meet people in real life and some like online meetings. I guess, if you ask, you will get a lot of response saying the same thing, I belive most of the members here in mylot do.

I usually spen my weekends at home with my family or some weekends I may go and stay the night with my bf. When I am home I will spend time listening to music, read, or mess around on the computer. I know most people like to go to the clubs and stuff but me I rather be home where I know nothing is going to happen because people are crazy out here now and days.

I dread going Christmas shopping because of the crowd. I do not have to but much because I only have one child and with everything going on I can not afford to buy things for other people. But when I do go out it be with my mom or my friends.

Most weeknds on one day we go to watch our son play in a football match. We go swimming, do some jobs and just generally try and hang out with the children. A hike is good and the children like that a lot.

Most people work monday to friday. The kids have their friends, activitys and for shore, homework. There are not much time for spending with family during weekdays, so a family qulity time in weekends are the best. I am going to be with one of my sisters, and my mum and dad. I have two more sisters, but we all four sisters have the same profession and some time we do not have the same days free.

well my weekends now are spent very great in my own opinion. My weekends actually start on saturdays rather than fridays because I work from 4pm to 12am. And by the time I get home everyone is sleeping or on their way home. Usually on saturdays I will go to the barber shop if I need to get a cut. Then I will usually have something planned to go out with one of my co workers or a friend of mine. Ill usually hang out in the city.Manhattan, NY. Probably go see a movie and go to dinner. Or ill go to an arcade or a few of my friends and I will go bowling. Then on sunday I will go to church with my Mom. But sometimes I will rest if I have a hard and stressful week at work.

I have heard others who use their weekends for doing things you not have time for during weekdays. Like cut hair, make weekshopping, shopping for clothing and other stuff. I on other hand have some weekdays of, so I can do those things then.

Hi! I usually retire very early every Friday because I have a busy work week. I usually sleep at 9 PM which is way early compared to the 11 PM (or later) sleep I would usually have from Mondays thru Thursdays. On Saturdays, I usually do my chores (house-cleaning, laundry, etc.) and go to the grocery store to get my food stock. On Sundays, I go to church in the morning and dine out with friends. I normally get home at 7 or 8 PM to prepare for the coming work week. I don't usually watch TV shows on weekends. If I do have time for TV, I watch cable TV for movies that I have missed when they were shown in the theaters. Happy myLotting!

I wish I could sleep over some time, but my body have set my sleeping hours to six hours per night, therefore I always wake up the same time every day. No matter what day it is. laudry and cleaning I do on a weekday when I am off work. I want the weekend of for everything and just be.

Stay in touch with friends on spare time is really god. It is important to have a social life outside work as well at work. I just like to be on my own. I have talked and smiled all day long and when I come home I just want to have some silence and get some rest. For others, a social life after work is as much important.

Weekends are when I just catch up with things and maybe spend a bit more time on the computer. I also do the kids homework with them on a sunday and then try to do some baking with them, this weekend they want to do rice crispie cakes so that will be nice and easy! I also get the washing basket emptied as I fill my meters up at weekend so I can get all the washing done without having to worry too much about running out!

I'm busy with my work on weekdays. I'm currently involved in a network marketing business that I do part-time, so I use the time I have on weekends to meet my prospects, do meetings, meet distributors and so on. I hope that once my income has increased to a level that's higher than my work income, I plan to quit my job and concentrate on it full-time. I enjoy the sunny saturday mornings here in Malaysia, where I will go to the local Starbucks and meet new people. Other than that, I like to watch english premier league football on saturday night. I'm sure many football fans out there will agree with me that there's nothing better than watching a football match on a saturday night. That's what most football fans look forward to.

Today is Friday and normally I work but today I didn't so I went down to the passport office and applied for my passport. Then I went to the casino for a few hours. I went with a hundred dollars and came home with 320 dollars so I was quite happy. That's more than I make at work. hehe But that doesn't happen very often, winning. Tomorrow is Saturday and I think I am going to sleep in. I don't usually sleep in but I am tired and after posting a couple responses I am going to bed. Then when I get up I will do my housework, like I always do on Saturdays. Then some laundry and all my weekly chores will be done. After that I will come work on the computer for a few hours and then make supper. I will either go to a girlfriends for coffee or go to the bar with a couple other friends or I may jut stay home and do a jigsaw puzzle. Then on Sunday I will do nothing. I will work on the computer some, but most of the day I will just lazy around and do absolutely nothing. What a boring life I have. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good day, Chris

Congrats on the winning casino games. I wish I had that luck, bug being borned on friday the 13 I am not in that luck at all. I never play....it is no use for me. I did also sleep in on saterday, but just becouse of working hours in the evening. Other wise I am up same time every day. My body have kind of ajust that time. A sunday for me can be work, or a lazy day. I am rather tired right now actually, just got home and needed to get down a bit. But in an hour or two there are dinner time.

Well I am a soccer coach so I spend my weekends out at the fields. Usually a solid 10 hours a weekend or so. I love it and couldn't think of anything else I would rather be doing. It's a wonderful job....if it can even be called a job. Wonderful to get paid for something you love.

Yes, it really is. I gues, many people would say - you are cracy. I guess, working on weekends is not a comon thing for most of the working people. But some of us have a feeling for doing things they love, and get paid for it. I can not think of another job to do either.

We start Friday at around 3:00 PM with our weekly shopping trip after depositing hubbies check, do the shopping that is needed and then home. We eat and then he watches some watch TV, then we talk, play with kids and do our emails. He goes to bed as he has to work Sat. til about noon. I stay up do the checkbook and bills. Saturday he comes home and we spend about an hour or so (while he has been at work I clean up and stuff) then I go to my pool league game. Come home around 6:00 PM, we all prepare dinner while talking and then either watch a movie or I come here to the net to do some things, like mylot and do surveys. Sundays we dont do alot, make a nice breakfast as we are all home and bum around as a family. This is winter only other seasons are totally different! As for the shows I dont really watch TV unless he wants me to with him. I however have caught a show of each and I like the dancing one lots more!

You like spend your weekend with Your family. I like that. It is far from what familys do these days. It seems we have not time for the family. It is sad I think. However, Me and my son always have our friday evening together. The other days he spend with friends and girlfriend. I can not compete with them yet.

that is a great way of spending your weekend. It sounds like something you did in the past. Now, kids rather spend their time infront of tv, with friends, games and so forth.
