Girls Write Out
Friday, February 10, 2006


Yes, it's the name of a restaurant, but it became the name for a reason. It's clear I'm not the only one who loves Fridays.

"Thank God it's Friday" is a phrase that resonates with nearly everyone. Kids get out of school for a couple days, employees get a reprieve from work, and parents get a break from the endless drudgery of homework--not ours, but the kids' (and if you have kids in school you know what I'm talking about).

I guess TGIF is not so much about Friday as it is about ushering in the weekend, family time, and a respite from the tediousness of the work week. I've always made it a habit to forgo household chores on the weekend. Hey, Kevin's not working, why should I? Of course, that does mean our house is a pigsty by Monday morning.

So, the weekend is here and the plans are all good. Watch my boys play basketball, dinner with friends, church on Sunday, a little R and R. A girl couldn't ask for much more. And if I have to spend all Monday on disaster detail, that's okay. It was worth it.

My son and I walk to Starbucks on Friday to celebrate making it to the end of another week. He's only four but he's already addicted to the whole trip, even though he could easily have strawberry milk at home.

What a sweet (no pun intended) memory you're making, Jennifer! That is really cool!

Friday night was always family night when our kids were at home. We bought videos, piled the popcorn bowl full and drank pop till our sides would split. We didn't answer the phone or the door. Our kids had our undivided attention. I treasure those memories still, and I think they do too. :-)

I love it!! In between church is our set day of "family time" we all kick back in the crowded living room , watch movies, eat whatever.. sometimes play the card game "spoons" (which is a mad house with all the males in my home) and catch up... I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Our Family nights are Friday too, Diann. Tonight we're going to a hockey game. Saturday night have always been date night for Kevin and me.

I loved Fridays when I was working. Now, if you can believe it, I kind of dread it. It means my work week is done and I have my writing rest day on Sunday. Aren't I a nut?

Great post, Denise. I love weekends and Sunday afternoon R&R.

Sounds like you have a great family!
