Sunday Matters: Working for the Weekend

Sunday Matters

I feel as if I work all week just to get to the weekend. I would love for them to be a little longer but I’ll take what I can get! This weekend was pretty good. Not a lot going on. I got to browse the bookstore. I got to eat some yummy food. Oh, and I had a moment to put the house in order. I cannot stand when things pile up.

Right Now:

Just sitting here with my coffee. I should be writing out bills but who the heck wants to do that? No one.

This Week:

The beginning of the week will be the same old stuff but this weekend I am attending a leader retreat. I wasn’t able to attend last year’s event so this will be my first time. Because of my neck injury, which is finally healing, I won’t be able to do the crazy stuff like obstacle courses, swinging on ropes, etc. I am secretly glad about that.


This is the part that is supposed to change weekly but hey, I did finish a book. Mark the calendar!! I really want to pick up the Murakami I have but I have a book in front of it. Maybe I will pick it up anyway.


Same stuff. I need some new shows. I did watch another episode of Black Mirror. That show is depressing as hell. If you need a pick-me-up do not watch that show but if you want to sit there staring at the screen with your mouth hanging open, and don’t care how you feel afterward, then go ahead and watch it.


Not making it yet but I saw a picture of BBQ’s brisket so now I want brisket. Brisket and mashed potatoes and maple carrots? Yes. Please.

Grateful for:

I’ve been watching my food intake and the Noom app has been a real help. Easy to use. Free. Keeps me honest. I’m grateful to have it with me at all times. Much easier than writing it out which would get boring fast.

That is all I have. What are you doing this weekend?

  1. Still…all in all…a really busy week! I just put a roast with carrots,, mushrooms and potatoes in the slow cooker…if I don’t have a sheet pan dinner prepped or a slow cooker dinner started…I can’t cook at the end of the day…books…so many new ones to choose from! They help keep me sane!

  2. Weekends just aren’t long enough, are they? I need new shoes too but our local store that carries shoes that fit me is closing. Now I have to figure out where to go.

  3. Just got done setting my new imac up. Only one call to Apple so far. And the lady who helped me was wonderful. No one from India, either. Now I can begin posting again. Stressful.

    1. Macs are pretty much out of the box for set-up but getting the printer and all your stuff the way you want it can take some time. Glad you are up and running again!

  4. I feel that way all too often too. It’s like I work for the weekends. I can’t believe March is nearly over. It is both one of the longest and yet shortest months. I’m not sure which. It feels long and yet it’s over too soon.

    I hope you have a nice time at the leader retreat. It will probably be nice to stand back and let others do the more action oriented stuff. Haha. I am glad your neck is healing. Hopefully it is not giving you too much trouble.

    It’s been a lazy day today. I didn’t get nearly as much done around the house as I had hoped, but after a week and Saturday that were full of activity, I’m not really caring. I hope you have a great week, Ti!

    1. If I am totally honest, I would need to take a vacation day at least once a week to take care of my house the way it needs to be taken care of. I do the bare minimum but it needs more than that and I am a bit of a freak when it comes to clutter. I need it out and it certainly tends to pile up in my house no matter what I do.

  5. I’ve started keeping a food and exercise journal this year. I find as I get busier, there is less time for me to write it all down. I may have to check out this app!

    1. I love this app. It also tracks my steps for the day which is a little incentive to move more. It’s database is not all that large. I’ve had to add foods to it and since it’s crowd sourced info sometimes the calories or portion sizes are off so if something is too good to be true, then I double check it and yeah, sometimes it’s off a bit but for a free app I love it. 16 lbs down since January.

  6. Working for the weekend? Yes, unfortunately, I do feel like that sometimes. Especially this time of year. My youngest daughter just asked me yesterday why the weekends seemed so short. I’ve got so much packed in to each day, that I am ready for a weekend by the time they roll around.

    1. Well, if the entire weekend could be spent without running errands then two days would be pretty good. I almost always have to take a day for errands or chores. Do people take vacation days just to clean their house? Because that’s the only way it’s going to happen these days.

  7. I think I should check out the Noom app; haven’t heard of it, but hopefully it might keep me more honest too. My hub says I’m on my own for watching the WD — he doesn’t really want to watch it anymore. Uh-oh. I still plan to get to the season’s end, but I’m behind.

    1. Next week is the finale so you have a little bit of time. My husband is bored with this season. He wants action. He loves Negan so he was happy with last night’s show. Anytime Negan is on screen the interest goes way up. For him and me!

    1. CSUN has their break last week but of course we have to work through it. Next week is spring break for my daughter and I will be taking three days off to spend it with her. My husband can’t take time off so we can’t go anywhere really.

  8. I miss weekends. I’m glad when others get to enjoy theirs though! I might be able to clean my house again in another week or so. It’s beginning to drive me batty though, so it doesn’t bode well for domestic bliss.

    1. I can’t stand a messy house but it’s not clean by my standards. I wonder how anyone keeps their homes clean when they work full time. I’d have to clean before a maid could even come in here so that won’t work either. LOL.

      1. When I had a housekeeper, I quickly got over the “clean before they come” feeling. Instead, I got used to coming home to a pristine house. Man, I miss that.

          1. Ours wasn’t live-in by any means. They would just come to the house once a week or once every other week to clean. It was heaven, and everyone quickly became spoiled.
