After a whole week working, routines at school and at home, weekends are most welcome to take a rest, to recreate or for some to hibernate.
I saw how my weekends evolved. When I was a student weekends were about partying from Friday to Saturday. Sunday was reserved for the family.

Then I got older. I worked and got married. My weekends changed from clubbing and partying to dining out with friends, before/after that my husband and I went to the theater or picked a movie at a cinema. I remembered I caught myself thinking of whether I had became such a boring person who enjoyed dining better than clubbing all night. Not that it did matter to me though, I just noticed this. I noticed that my Mondays were better because I spent my weekends to relax instead of being active.
A few years later on I became a mother and I started to learn to cook. Weekends offered me a pauze in my head. I did the household chores and sent my husband and G out to bond in open air. But still there were plenty social occassions to attend. Birthday parties of my friends’ children. Or friends and family came to our house for a homemade dinner. Those were busy weekends.
Now I plan my weekends as they come. G has her own friends with whom she hangs out, also in weekends. My husband and I go out on a date at weekends, 1 or 2 times a month. Here I mean really going on a date, just the two of us without G. We do some effort to enjoy this quality time. Why I share about this? Most couples who are parents, tend to neglect this. It is not harmful to try to retrieve the butterflies in your stomach and reconnect with your spouse.
On Saturday if my family and I don’t go out either visiting museums, exploring new places or going to birthday parties, I will be cooking or baking in the kitchen the whole day. Sometimes I meet my own friends alone. My husband has his own appointments too. But after all these years, Sunday has stayed a family day. And Sunday for me is about cuddling and reading a book on the couch with a music on, while he watches sport on tv.
What do you do on weekends?
