Do you run from sporting event to sporting event?

Hi Karen! :)

Well.... I'm not sure exactly how my weekends are going to look from here on out since I'll likely work weekends, but today I did some juggling of errands before starting work at 1. Only had to work 4 hours though so then the kids and I all went out for pizza tonight with my older son. :)

Tomorrow, I also have to work, but not until 5pm so I think we'll go visit my mom tomorrow morning for a few hours.

I don't have children of my own, so week-ends are faily flexible, sane and relaxing. When my nephew's school participates in a football (read: soccer) competition, I'll go. It's really the only thing that can get me up very early on a Saturday morning.

As for me, it really depends on what's happening. My nephew has his end-of-year exams next week, so he's studying with me. Usually, though, I'll work part of the week-end (out of habit - I found out that I got more out of working half a day on a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon than on a normal work day). I'll meet friends for a few hours. I sometimes go to the salon on a Saturday to get a manicure/pedicure and my hair done, or go for a massage or a reflexology session. Those are my monthly indulgences, but also lifesavers because I recharge then. I haven't really gone on a proper vacation for years, so these little treats were and still are important. I'm lucky that these treatments are very much affordable here. Lately though, I go on a week day when I have the time since they offer a nice discount, which is a word I like :-p

I'm a planner, so not knowing would drive me crazy.

I love that word "discount" too.

I tend to fall asleep during the massage or even foot reflexology. It's wonderful!

I've never heard of reflexology before so I had to do some research between the differences between massage and reflexology.

Nope. They seem to know by touch what's going on with our bodies. Let me share with you what a friend wrote on another board:

"It's so fascinating! I have been practicing for almost 5 years now and it still blows my mind when I can tell a client something about what's going on internally with their body...and when they validate the accuracy it gives me goosebumps!
I find it really interesting when I pick up some of the less physical stuff too. For instance, I can sometimes tell when someone has been working on something really creative because of how their right toe feels." ~ Suamomi
