i know most people may long for weekends, but i adore the weekdays. the somewhat predictable routine and how all of our activities fit so nicely into the time allotted. my work day must come to an end at a reasonable hour, instead of the long days and nights i am used to otherwise.
i like how homework is always after school with a snack, then it's time to practice violin. i like how there is creative play or art before dinner and one of them inevitably puts on either Thelonius Monk or Charles Mingus while i start cooking. she sets the table and helps light the candles and then we sit to eat, all together.
during cleanup, she usually dances and begs for more play time. but it's bath and bed. a couple of stories, snuggles, and then we fall asleep to wake up and do it all over again tomorrow.
what do you prefer? weekdays or weekends?
