I don’t know about anyone else, but sometimes I feel like I need a weekend from my weekend. Lately my weekends have been packed with numerous social engagements and errands that I haven’t had time to get to during the week. I shove a ton into two work free days (unless I’m lucky enough to have a lazy Sunday). Then without fail every Monday I wake up exhausted and spend the rest of the day running on empty. Sometimes I feel like the weekends wear me out more than a whole week a work..
You would think that spending time away from the office with friends, sleeping in, and not having to actually do any work would let my mind relax and allow me to wake up refreshed on Monday ready to take on a new week.
Just like every other Monday I woke up late and completely unmotivated. I love my job, but I was just not ready to get out of bed. I could have used another day or two to recuperate. Sunday is simply not enough of a buffer. (Thankfully I have a vacation coming up next week!)
I hope that everyone had a good fourth of July! I know it’s only Monday, but I know exactly what I am doing next weekend:

I completely understand the feeling. By the time Monday comes around, I’m exhausted and need the next weekend more than ever. I’m sure it’s because I try and cram as much as I can into a weekend to balance out the ‘work’ and ‘play’ part of my life. Probably need to factor in a ‘relax’ element too!
I think I do the same thing, I work so much during the week that I just want to spend as much time on the weekend as I can doing things with friends. The other reason I can think of is that I am so busy during the week that it’s not really possible for me to do nothing for two days. It’s like I feel guilty for not having a busy day.
