I could make of my time what I wanted, free of warped expectations or fears of how I should be feeling or what was coming next. No longer was my fixation on crossing the Monday-to-Friday monkey bars. It didn't have to be, because it didn't matter what day it was. It was today, and nothing else mattered.
Two days off never feels like quite enough, does it? Between home projects, cleaning, errands and social engagements, Sunday night can arrive quite suddenly. Striking the right balance between preparing for the week ahead and actually feeling as though you had a weekend is a delicate art, but it can be done.
