True to my style of blogging about the mundane, it seemed to me that it was about time I talked about weekends :-) I like weekends because:

  • It gives me a break from the grind of work.
  • I can spend time with the One.
  • I actually have enough time to write blog entries!
  • I can actually read blog entries.
  • I can sleep late.

These days I'm really appreciating a break from work because, for the last 6 months or so, it's been quite stressful. And this is from a person who expects stress at work. I appreciate the break now much more than I did before.

Spending time with the One is something I could always use more of: I don't appreciate her enough.

For the last 3 months or so, I've been working on a crappy software project™ in my spare time. This has sadly taken time away from blogging; though I've actually received fan mail telling me that this is a good thing :-S I often find reading other sites to be as rewarding as writing them, however, and I can't seem to find time to do that either. The weekend gives me time to look around.

I have a strange relationship with sleep. Scientists tell us that human beans have a "Circadian Rhythm" that controls when we sleep, but mine seems to be more like a gremlin (see previous post). My guess is that the gremlins are actually in league with the gnomes, who are trying to take over my lawn, but that's a whole other post right there.

Suffice it to say that I consider getting more sleep a very good thing™ and find it another thing to appreciate about weekends.

All in all, Sunday is the downside to the weekend, but then, that's also the day I blog, so I guess it all balances out.

[1] Circadian Rhythms are sometimes confused with Canadian Rhythms, which is something else entirely. At any rate, you can find references all over the place from Google, but wikipedia has a nice article at

Be good to yourself. Sounds like things have been rough at work.

I read blogs to relax. There is no way to find out everything that is happening in the world, so I let the blogosphere filter it for me.

Sunday is the one day in the week that I don't set the alarm clock. Then I wander out here to the computer, read other folks' entries about their blessings and work on my own. The day always seems to go too fast . . . then it's Monday again and the whole rat-race kicks into gear. Ah, but these Sundays are great. Hope your stress diminishes and the project goes well. Have a good week and see ya next Sunday!

Happy BYB Sunday! You should also investigate Biorhythms. There's a lot of free places on the net where you can plug in your data.
