I have a stupid question today. For those of you who are home during the week, how are weekends different?
I know there are some obvious answers: the husband is home, school-aged kids are home, there aren’t as many scheduling demands, etc…
But now that I’m home more days than I’m at work, I’m struggling to figure out how to manage weekends. I keep pretty productive on the weekdays, but I’m not sure how to handle Saturday and Sunday. Do you keep a set schedule for your family? Ours are largely unscheduled and so it feels kind of chaotic, haphazard, and like the time is a little wasted. I want weekends to feel unhurried and restful, but I’m wondering if I need some semblance of a schedule in order to make that happen.
Has anyone else had this experience? Weekends have always looked vastly different from the weekdays but now with more days at home and kids who still haven’t learned that weekends mean sleeping in, I think I need a new strategy.
