I’m not ready for the weekend

Thursday, the last day of the week and I am just having this day of not wanting the week to end, of not wanting the weekend to arrive yet. I am just not ready for the weekend (gasp!) There’s much to do now and not so much time to do it in and (wail) I can’t go to work on the weekend and work if I want to like before. Neither do I have a laptop to carry my work around in and work on whenever I start to stress about something that hasn’t been done yet.

I love the timing in my new office, starting off at 8 am is just perfect for me. I can get a lot more done in the quiet hours of the morning before the rest of the offices wake up to their day. Most times even though office ends at 4.30 pm, I do still stick around trying to clear my emails and my desk of pending work in preparation for the next day. However, as I discovered, leaving at 6.45 or 7.00 pm is like leaving an empty haunted building. It is just too quiet for me – me – since I am used to having people around in the office even if it was 3.00 am in the morning.

Anyhow, so this week has basically just flown by and I don’t know where the days went. It’s been hectic with 2 days of being out for most of the day (showing my city to the Dutch MP) and then one day went just visiting one really brilliant factory (more on the factory in another post). And then one morning eaten up with meetings and now 2 days of trying to get the paper work done, emails answered and off my queue, accompanying a very special friend to the hospital for tests and consultations. And now here I am, staring at the mango tree outside my window and wondering where my week went. ‘

I love my weekends, I do. I have all these plans for the weekend. I have to go see those horses that I have been talking about for 2 weeks now. I need go see my dog as well (another story there). And I really really want to re-read this book that I just finished last night (Twenties girl) and watch some of the latest movies that have come out. I also need to catch up on my paper-back reading on development aid (Less pretension, more ambition) and other magazines that I have been storing forever it seems. But right now I am sitting here updating my blog and wondering where my week went and how I really don’t want the weekend to arrive just quite yet.

      After this week is over, I am going to use the 4 day weekend to get out of the city, hide out in a beautiful resort in the hills and recharge my spirit. I just can’t wait for this week to end :))


      • Good and maybe you should resolve even for ..say the summer months that you will not stay late at the office…but instead have a little of the ‘summer days’ to enjoy after working the ‘regular hours’…Diane
