Open Letter to the Weekend

My Precious Weekend,

Finally.  You're here.  I thought you'd never come.  I don't mean to sound ungrateful.  But waiting for your arrival these past five days has been excruciating.   Once I thought I heard you approaching.  But, alas, it was only Wednesday.   And, I must confess, because you took so long to get here I had to take a half day off yesterday, just to make it through.   I feel like I cheated on you.   I hope you'll forgive me.  I know you're faithful - - you come every single week, no matter what.   Kind of like the post office used to be . . . rain, sleet, snow and hail.  But to be honest, Weekend, sometimes I feel you're not meeting my ever-increasing needs.  I know it's not your fault.  But I need to see you more often than once a week, and I know that's not possible . . . you are giving all you have to give.   Sigh. 

But, you're here, and for now that's all that matters.  I will enjoy the time we have together.  And then when you're gone . . . again . . . I'll be thinking about our next tryst.



  1. I hate it when I think it's Thursday and it turns out to be only Wednesday. It makes the week seem twice as long. I love Saturday morning!

  2. I went through this whole stretch of time where I thought every Tuesday was Friday. Uncool. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I say good-bye to my weekend in tears of distress.

  4. Was this past week the longest week ever, or was it just me?!

  5. a good game would be to imagine that you can not wait for the week to start ..and finally..almost time to go to bed and when we wake up it is.. monday morning
    with a big general strike in Belgium
    how is that for something to look forward to :)
    enjoy your sunday ! here almost over

  6. I'd like to add a request that maybe the weekend could be one day longer. Hope yours was nice.

  7. I love this ever so much. I am taking NINE days off in a row beginning this Friday and I am ecstatic. I'm hoping my relationship with the traditional 2-day weekend can survive my terrible infidelity.

    1. I hope you have a FABULOUS nine days off!!! Hope you're doing something exciting!
