This season, my week can be summed up as:
Mellow Mondays. Slow start of the school week, since my kids are still (relatively) calm after expending all their energies in the past weekend. Also the time of the week when I catch up on chores and errands. If I won’t clean the CR/grocery shop/cook/wash the dishes/do laundry/sweep the floor/dust/take out the trash/change the linens, etc., no one else will.
Transforming Tuesdays. After work, I brave the crazy MRT commute at rush hour to go to my Life-Growth Class, where we Discover, Discuss, and Do together. Counselling/therapy session, food trip, wisdom-dose and intercession time rolled into one. Little by little, being transformed by the renewing of my mind.
Wednesdays With 7F. My self-imposed study/library raid day… and starting this September, weekly 7F meetings. Ladies, my thesaurus is still open to the F section and searching for an alternate name for our bible study. But a rose by any other name is still as sweet, and you are truly my answered prayer.
Typhoon/Tornado Thursdays. Imagine 4 (or horrors, 5) little kids between 5-7 years old cooped up in a tiny room and expected to sit still for an hour. Hanggang imagination lang sila nagsi-sit still. Bouncing off the walls, anyone? Thank God for clay, puzzles, crayons and star stamps. Bribery works! And though I’m not supposed to play favorites, I really appreciate the lone little boy who actually behaves in that mad hour. My appreciation is expressed in extra points.
Frantic Fridays. My Friday evenings are saved for the misery called solitary writing. For the wages of procrastination is cramming indeed.
Stressed Saturdays. Continuation of Frantic Friday since I am usually sleepless in the pursuit of papers. Sometimes (how I long for those times), this becomes Stargazing Saturdays when I get to go to my happy place and enjoy coffee, good company, cool weather, kubos, flowers, rustling leaves, and the stars.
Somnolent Sundays. I hibernate and observe the Sabbath. Recharging for another…
“Shalalalalalalalalalalalala, a week has seven days!”
