How Am I Busiest on My Day Off?

How Am I Busiest on My Day Off? | Faith Permeating Life
Saturdays are my days off, which means they incredibly stress me out.

What I do Monday through Friday is set for me -- I go to work -- and Sundays are the same -- I go to my parents' house. Saturdays I volunteer at the library from 10am to noon. Almost every Saturday I have something to take to the post office and something to take to the bank, so I have to do this before going to the library because the post office closes at noon. Despite doing this every Saturday, I somehow always misjudge how long it will actually take me to run these errands and get to the library late, meaning I actually stay there later than noon. I eat lunch when I get home, and then I have a few free hours until 4, when Mike gets home and wants to talk to me for an hour until church at 5, after which we come home and have dinner.

Today I really want to go shopping in that little window of time, because I haven't had a chance to go the past few weekends and I have a bunch of gift cards to New York & Company, who's having a buy-one-get-one-free pants sale (which is really what I need). But I know I also need to put a few solid hours of work into this current project, and if I try to do that while Mike is here, he will drive me nuts talking to me. I could go shopping after dinner, but that only gives me about an hour until they close, and I will not have had a free moment all day.

So no, Saturdays are not my day to relax.

There are other things I want to write about -- NFP, an update on my job, freebies/sweepstakes -- but as you can tell, I'd better get my butt up and shower and eat and get my stuff together for the bank/post office.

It was nice to pretend for half an hour that I didn't have a bunch of stuff to do.
