Yay! It’s FRIDAY! Not only is it Friday, but the sun is shining into my classroom windows right now, which automatically puts me in a good mood. The weekend weather is predicted to be nice. The sun is supposed to be out in full force all weekend with temperatures in the high 50’s/low 60’s.
Friday has always been my favorite day, even when I was a little girl. I would be so excited for Friday nights. I looked forward to watching the TGIF program lineup on ABC. Full House and Family Matters were the shows I looked forward to the most. We’d come home from school, my parents would order pizza, and we would eat popcorn while watching the family sitcoms. It’s funny how these memories sometimes feel like they just happened yesterday, because they are still so vivid in my mind!
Fridays continued to be my favorite day of the week throughout college, early adulthood, and now as a mom! Not only because it’s the last day of a long week, but I also get to spend more time with my husband and kids. In the wintertime we spend a lot Friday nights playing board games with the kids, as much as we can without our 1 year intruding in on our games! When the weather is nice we like to spend time outside with the neighbors, and maybe even build a fire. Friday nights I usually stay up late catching up on a bunch of my reality TV shows that I didn’t get to watch during the week. I like to call it my mindless television. It’s a good way to let my brain relax after a long week.
I hope everyone has a fun and relaxing weekend!
