Active week & passive weekend OR vice versa?
Someone (can't remember who) made me notice some time ago that a sign of getting old(-er) is when you get into the habit of having an active week and a lazy and homey weekend. Well, this happens to me these days. See today: I started my new job, which is strange (but brilliant!): I am completely autonomous and indipendent. So, I decided to start my working day with the most appealing side of it: NPD (New Product Development). I revised a publishing proposal which we recently received and that I have to pursue and implement. Then, I had yoga at lunch time and yoga after work. I walked to and back the (yoga) centre and enjoyed the warm Spring air at times interrupted by a chilly wind. In the evening I met Lofty and together we went to do some shopping. We are now back: he is in the kitchen, as usual, while I am here noseying around... I am about to order an electric sweeper off the internet. Tomorrow morning I am going swimming with Joe and after work I have drinks with my new colleagues. A very monotone weekend followed by a rather diverse start of the week! Am I getting old? Or simply absorbed into my daily routine? I will get bored of it at some point and in need of feeling more useful for the society, but for the time being I am happy as I am: selfishly useful. Is your weekend more active than your week? Or vice versa?
