readers (Mom)! And welcome to Queen of the Weekend.
Why Queen of the Weekend? The title of this blog comes from a Blink 182 song, Kings of the Weekend, in which Mark Hoppus sing-shouts “‘Til Monday morning strikes again… we are the kings of the weekend!”
This lyric is a good summary of how I feel about this point in my life: Working 8-5, five days a week, at a job that sometimes feels like it’s slowly choking me; too mentally exhausted to do anything with my evenings; living for the 48 hours over the weekend when I can travel, explore our new hometown, or simply sleep in and sit on the couch with our dogs.
Sound a bit dramatic? (I may have been accused of this in the past.) I do want to state for the record that I am very fortunate. Extremely lucky and grateful for everything in my life.
But on Monday mornings… it’s sometimes hard to remember that. So this blog will chronicle my attempts to celebrate making it to Friday each week. Queen of the Weekend is born.
