Surprise! I have more to say this week…so you win a bonus blog. This morning I realized that my weekend is peeking around the corner (the 9 hour workday corner, that is) and for the first time in a little while, I’m not overwhelmed with plans.

I should let you in on a little secret about my weekends. I spend the entire time walking a tightrope of desires. I find myself wishing for lots of free time, but then when I have free time, I find myself trying to fill it with plans: Friends I haven’t seen in a few days, going to BBQs, birthdays, etc. My weekend either looks W I D E O P E N and then I end up filling it with plans the day-of, OR it looks [jampacked] and I find myself secretly breaking plans to spend more time by myself.
