I have a love/hate relationship with the weekends. They come way to fast and are over with just as quickly. By the time Monday comes around I'm already counting the days until Friday. And as much as I love lazy weekends every now and then I wish they were a little more productive.
And I don't mean productive in the way that I wish I got more accomplished. I accomplish plenty of errands, cleaning and cooking on the weekends. I do wish however that they were filled with more quality time with the hubby
During the week we wander around our house as two individuals. We get up at different times, leave for work and return home at different times. He beats me home by three hours and has plenty of time to relax and play his playstation games. I however don't get home until after 7, get dinner ready, clean and don't get a chance to sit down until 9ish where I force the hubby to watch an hour of reality tv. After that it's off to bed. Some nights I try to convince the hubby to watch a movie or drink a glass of wine or two before bed but usually he just wants to relax and will read a book while I watch tv. And I can't blame him. So when the weekends roll around I try to cram as many activities into them as possible.
However we have different ideas about ways to spend our weekends.I want the weekends to be time spent with the hubby. I feel most connected to him when we get out of the house and engage in some sort of activity. This Sunday we drove up to raleigh, did some shopping and went out to lunch. It was so nice to get away from the sound of guns blaring over the play station, the ringing telephone and the apt for a day. We talked, we laughed we had a blast. However once we were back home we assumed our spots on separate couches and tried to watch a movie before one of us got bored and picked up a book to read and then we headed off to bed. Monday I wanted to get outta the house too but M wanted to stay in. We ended up vegging the day away each doing our own thing. And while I loved having the day off work and being able to lay around all day I was left with the feeling that we should be doing something. Once the week starts we become so busy with our routine and get so caught up in things we hardly have time for the other. So why is it on weekends we still don't make the time for each other.
Does anyone else feel this way. In a way I feel like I'm overreacting. We do try to make plans and by the time the weekend rolls around we don't feel like following through on our plans. So I know I can't complain. I just wish the weekends were filled with more us time
