Living for the weekend
Friday, September 18, 2015
Work feels so overwhelming sometimes that I find myself counting down to the weekend when I can sleeeeep.
This weekend will be a little less relaxing than usual. The kid has another soccer game, and also we are hosting a team dinner. Which means food for almost two dozen teenagers - I'm trying not to be anxious about it. The kid thinks I'm obsessing a bit; every couple of days I ask her if the menu is okay. I can't help it, I have a lot of my Mom in me, and my Mom's dinners *always* fill the table and yield plenty of leftovers.
One day the kid will understand. One day, she'll catch herself in mid-thought and shock herself to realize: "I sound just as nuts as my mother!" That will be one satisfying day. In the meantime ... how many trays of lasagna do we need? I can't decide between 3 and 4. Teenagers, especially those carbo-loading before a soccer game, can have monstrous appetites!
