Friday's used to be our day of rest and relaxation. I would pick up the kids from school early, 12:15, because Fridays are our early days. We would then go home, eat or pack a lunch, change clothes and head to the park where we would meet a bunch of friends. We would then sit there for hours and let the kids play and we would all talk. Sometimes, we wouldn't leave until dark.
Lately, though, Friday's haven't been as much fun. For instance, last Friday we couldn't go to the park at all because I had to work. Yesterday, I had a mandatory staff meeting so I had to be late. I also had to work last night. Which means, we only got to stay for about an hour. I sure miss hanging out with my friends with no where to go and nothing to do.
There are things in my life that have changed so much in the last four months since I started working. I know that going to school and working is something I have to do for my family and someday, I will have time for friends again. For now though, it just sucks.
