I fight battles with Fridays. I love the weekends; meeting up with friends, going out, dressing up (yup)... and I hate to waste a second of them. Unfortunately, on Fridays I come home from work so physically exhausted that it's hard to get the motivation to do anything. If there are plans, I'm good. I may be late to show at whatever is going on but if I say I will show, I'm there. 'I meant what I said and I said what I meant, an elephant's faithful 100%'... thank-you Dr. Seuss. I love that line and I live it...well, except for likening myself to an elephant but you get the idea.
However, if Matt and I don't have concrete plans and if my butt and the couch meet, it's game over. Attach a few straws together to reach from my glass of wine on the table to me on the couch and I may be able to finish half a glass before I'm asleep.
This weekend I was determined to not let my weekday exhaustion win over my weekend extravagance, so I avoided the couch like the plague. By 10:30 I finally had showered, tamed the dread locks the wind had put into my hair and applied my face ( a mask really). We walked over to a local pub (may I gush for a moment about living downtown? Of course I can, it's my blog... I love that we can just walk to go to so many unique places and not just hop in our car and end up at a chain restaurant...) had a few drinks and some nachos and made it home to be in bed by midnight. I know, not the most exciting night... But I wore a shiny jacket and we beat the Friday Funk. Friday-0, Matt and Yen-1.
