Weekends are for family. With two active young girls and a condo at a ski hill, our weekends are devoted to playing, be it biking or swimming in the summer, hiking in the spring and fall or skiing in the winter. I bring very little, if any, work home, although I am not opposed to reading a few new books to my girls and a YA novel or pro-d book for myself.
Weekends are also for getting organized. Weekends spent up at the ski hill mean that laundry, grocery shopping and work around on the house have to be done during the week so we need to be very organized to fit everything in. I usually spend some of my weekend time planning meals, looking at the calendar and planning our activities for the week. Being organized around the house means I can focus more energy and time on work throughout the week, thus allowing me more free time on the weekends. It's a self-perpetuating cycle, as long as I can keep it going!
