A Collective Sigh of Relief

What is it about Fridays that just make us all take a deep, peaceful breath? The mood is jovial, the dress casual, the intention - frivolity.

I do enjoy a good Friday. I remember when I was a little kid, Friday meant I could get up early the next morning, watch my cartoons and play outside. (Which btw, I was never inside ... even in the winter. )

When I was in middle school, Friday meant I would figure out which friend I would spend the night with, and we would go to the mall or movies and "walk around." It meant I could sleep in late and talk on the phone all day.

In high school, it meant I would have to figure out which party to go to, and align up my date for the weekend. Sleeping late, staying up late - it was all a part of the culture.

College and early adulthood meant trying to figure out which club we were going to hit up. Definitely sleeping late.

Now.. it means a lighter work load at work, and I would like to think I would be able to sleep later, but because my body is used to waking up around 7am, I tend to pop right up a little earlier than I would like.

Still - Friday brings the promise of fun. Endless possibilities.

Heck, I was even born on a Friday!

Friday is my favorite day too. I think it is the anticipation of the weekend that is actually more fun than the actual weekend.

I too spent too much time in malls as a teenager. Do malls even exist anymore?

I love Fridays because that means I get 2 full days with the hubby. Not working these days means I get plenty of alone time...

I am so excited about today because we are going out to dinner and then to get our tree and decorate it!

Friday is the day I get all my crap done. Laundry, grocery shopping, etc. But it's better than having to worry about school like all the other days :)
