I can't believe that it is Friday already.  The weekend is just around the corner, then Monday again...
What do you do on the weekends?  Mine are just like regular week days except television is different.  Can't watch any soaps.  Sometimes I will go out on a Friday night to a friend's house and visit for a while, but that is about it.
Do you do anything different on the weekend than during the week?  Maybe you have kids home from school, or the weekend off of work.  Or maybe you are in school and have to work weekends.  What is your weekend like?

My weekends are different, I work during the week so have weekends off, usually I see my boyfriend (as I don't see him much in the week) so I will normally see him overnight for one of the nights & also in the afternoon on A sunday, the other night I will usually spend out with friends or family. This weekend for example, tonight my boyfriend is coming over and I am cooking for him - we've had quite a bad week and considered splitting up so it will be nice to relax together I think, and then tomorrow we are going to visit his cousins new baby, then I am getting my hair done & in the evening I am seeing my friend. Sunday my boyfriend and I are going to the casino I think! Should be a nice weekend, provided we don't argue! lol!

Im a Seventh Day Adventist, so from sundown friday night until sundown saturday night, i observe sabbath. its a real relaxing time. i read, listen to peaceful music, use the time to journal, update my prayer list etc. if i feel up to it i go to church on saturday morning, but i havent been in weeks cos im so unwell (physically). we often have friends home to lunch on sabbath (saturday) and thats really fun too. we eat WELL!  (p.s SDA's are not a weird cult- we are christians who worship saturday instead of sunday)

I spend saturday night with friends, either dvd's and junk food at home, or dinner and movies.

Sundays i have a ritual- go get the paper, read it while i drink my chai tea and have mtv playing on my tv, catch up on lesson plans for school on mondays- always have a nap in the afternoon, cos of my fibro, im wasted by working a full week.


thats about it!

p.s i am going away this wknd, about a 4hr drive up the coast, away from sydney for a weekend of frolicking at the beach and then dinner with about 40 friends at a very chic restaurant to celebrate a mate's 30th birthday. i hate leaving my comfort zone, and am feeling anxious, but im sure i will have fun when i get there- XX

Good question Karen............ :-)   I try to go uptown on the weekends to spend time with my sister, sometimes I stay over and most times I drive home.

I do not have many friends so I usually don't do much else different on weekends then I do on weekdays.

I usually spend most evenings from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM watching movies.  I am not a soap opera person anymore although at one time I was a huge fan.

I hope each of you has a peaceful weekend.

I often make plans with friends or go out for dinner or a movie.  Or I sometimes run errands during the day that I don't get done before.  I am usually reading or needlepointing and if i'm home I always watch Suze Orman on Sat night.  I have learned so much from this show about managing finances. I am on a no spend option of my choosing right now except for groceries and my ocassional evening out which is always something very inexpensive.  And if I go to a movie I go to the 1st one at my local theater which has $3 tickets. I do need to go out with friends sometimes just to keep my sanity.  I can't find a job so being at home so much can give you cabin fever especially since it is so cold and snowy here.  Not even safe to go for a walk because of the ice.
