Thank Goodness its Thursday!

I am so glad that this week is going by quickly. I am desperate for the weekend right now. I want to cuddle with my husband in bed on Saturday morning while the sun streams through the window. The chill of the autumn air making us pull the covers around our chins. The smell of coffee brewing downstairs. The peaceful look on our dogs face as she catches the last few minutes of sleep.

Without a doubt, this is my favorite time of the week. I look forward to it each Saturday morning, and it changes slightly throughout the year depending on the weather outside. I think I've been craving these times increasingly more because of the beginning of the school year. With David coming home and working until 11 PM on school work, we don't have as much time together as I'd prefer. It makes me long for the weekends.

My other Saturday favorite - coffee in our huge mugs from Disney

While I wait for Saturday, however, I have plenty to do. I have a house which desperately needs cleaning. It astounds me how the house can be clean one night and a disaster the next night (and we don't even have children yet)! I also have laundry which needs to be done, and I am kicking myself for not making my own laundry detergent yet because the store detergent is expensive. Today, I have an appointment with my ENT at University of Chicago as well. I've been having bad sinus headaches, bloody noses, and swollen lymph nodes in my neck/shoulders, so I think it's time that I am seen. I'm not looking forward to the drive, but hopefully I can find some relief from the pressure.

So, it's a busy time until the weekend, but it will all be worth it the moment that I wake up with my sweetheart next to me and knowing we have nothing to do for a few hours. Best. Feeling. Ever. 


  1. Enjoy your weekend! And good luck with the ENT. Sometimes bloody noses can just be from dryness. I was actually just about to set up an ENT visit this summer, but then I became ineligible for sinus surgery... so I'm waiting awhile for that one, LOL! ;)

  2. Got to love a nice lazy weekend morning! It is one of my favorites with the wife as well. I second you on the house. One day you clean it then the next day its a mess again and it literally has only been a day!!! I never understood this but at least we aren't the only family that has this :)

  3. Hope you are enjoying your Saturday morning! BTW love the new pic on your blog! It is still 100 degrees here so fall still feels far away, but I can't wait for the weather to cool down!

  4. Cindy, I'm so glad that you're putting it off - it's for the perfect reason!!

    John, You're definitely NOT the only one. :) And I'm glad that those are some of your favorite times also. It's just so relaxing and peaceful.

    Inhaling, We did enjoy it - it was wonderful! Thank you so much! I am fond of it as well. Ugh - 100 degrees...yuck! It was 70 for a HIGH today. :)
