Suddenly it’s almost midnight

Weekends are great when you’re a parent with a day job, because you get to spend a lot more time with your kid than you do on weekdays. And they’re much more exhausting ┬áthan weekdays are, for pretty much the very same reason.

I got up at with my kid at 7:00 AM this morning. She went out with her mum for a while afterward, while I vacuumed the house and did some laundry. My parents paid a visit this afternoon, and after they left, we played around for another few hours until it was time to put the kid to bed. Then I ran some errands, chilled out on the couch with my wife, and played some video games after she went to bed.

It’s been a full day, and a great day, but certainly not a day that feels like it occupied nearly as much time as it did. My day is coming to a close, and I feel like I just got up. Before I know it, I’ll be back at my desk on Monday morning. Which is good, because I could use the rest.
