When Friday afternoon rolls around, my whole body sighs with relief. It's the beginning of the weekend, or 'WE-kend' as my husband and I call it; a time reserved just for us, for goofing off, taking naps, eating good food, and making eachother laugh. One of our favorite things to do is sink into our plump white couch, throw a blanket over our legs, and watch a movie. Sometimes we even do it in the middle of the day, and we really try to enjoy it every time, because we know that once there's a baby in the house, this kind of indulgence will be gone for quite some time.
Our WE-kend days are arranged around walks with Kiki. One in the morning, and one in the afternoon. I also have to do the grocery shopping on Saturdays before 3 o'clock, as supermarkets are closed here on Sundays. But once that's over with, we prove that we are experts at relaxing.
We're a bit like children on the weekend, actually. It's all about fun and getting out of as much responsibility as possible. It's rare that we share our WE-kend with outsiders. Sometimes we'll go to to the movies and sushi with our go-to couple, or invite Ramon's family over for lunch. But that's about the height of socializing. Mostly, we just want to laze around, talking, not talking, giggling, sleeping, and spreading peanut butter on brioch.
