The Weekend

The carefree days of summer vacation are over. When my kids went back to school, they instantly began looking forward to the weekend. “How many more days until the weekend?” This sparked a serious debate regarding the days of the week. I feel strongly that Sunday is the first day of the week. Everyone else thinks that because Sunday is part of the weekend, Monday is the first day of the week. Also, why is it called a weekend? It’s not like time stops at the weekend. Maybe we need a more optimistic approach to our calendar terminology. We use the weekend to recover from the past week. We should spend the weekend preparing for a fantastic week ahead. Maybe it should be called a weekcommence.
