    What do you do on the weekend?

    And how do you spend your spare time?

    Work, I am getting ready to leave for work early today. I was in the emergency room from 2am till 8am and have to go back to pick up my prescription. I couldn't afford it. $113.00 for 20 cipro pills. I have a severe kidney infection but I still have to go to work without sleep so I can now pay for the hospital bill.

    Maybe one day I will be able to spend my weekends doing anything I wish. Even if it's nothing at all.


    I don't want someone in my life I can live with. I want someone in my life I can't live without.

    Clean, run errands, sleep in, eat a decent dinner, meet with friends, go to a movie, rent a movie....all the stuff I did not have the opportunity to do as a JW...except cleaning!

    For me, mostly I am trying to get the house cleaned up where the soon to be ex and her brats never did housework. Of course, there is the yard too, but it's pretty wet, so maybe I'll have to let it grow higher, only past my ankles right now.

    Tonight, I get to babysit my two grandsons while Mom & Dad go out with friends. They feel bad to ask me to sit, but I look on it as a privilege.

    Of course, since I worked all week, I take a lot of breaks and watch a little TV and nap some too. Tomorrow, I'll watch the race and continue the smae old boring routine.

    Hopefully, someday I will met a decent woman and we can share responsibilities and on weekends, drive to the coast or the mountains and enjoy getting away together.

    If God's Spirit is filling a Kingdom Hall, how is it that Satan can manuever the ones within that Kingdom Hall at the same time?

    We go to car boot sales, a bit of grocery shopping, go to the beach or sometimes go further inland for a picnic( we are on the edge of the Scottish Highlands)We do all this with the kids, 12 & 14. I really enjoy going out on Sunday a.m. also not having to spend Saturday evening doing the WT.Sunday a.m car boot sales are fun witness spotting zones, I usually only get to see their cars, I think they must hide!

    Well, a weekend for me is only Sunday since I work most Saturdays till 4. Sundays are for sleeping in and relaxing, a little cleaning and laundry, watch a movie or two and if I feel like it hit the gun range. And of course drink beer. (but not when shooting, mind you)Last Sunday I went to the gun range. The hillbilly in the lane next to me was peppering his silhouette target with holes, basically everything EXCEPT a kill-shot and I calmly put a box of 100 rounds in the #9 circle or better on one target.

    Good to see you posting. My weekends are always busy and rarely the same. Not when there are markets to go to, coffee shops and beaches that need visiting etc.. For example, as a member of "W.I.R.E.S" (wildlife information and rescue service) Last night I was called out to rescue an injured wombat (female hit by car with a baby still in the pouch .. mother died but baby might be OK) Last week I sqeezed in a visit to Canberra and spent the night at fellow JWD poster Barry's house (a man with interesting pastimes) Today I will be gardening (or at least trying to establish a garden) and then going back into the shed to work on restoring an antique dresser. I love working with my hands, weekends or not. Such a short life and so many things to enjoy!

    Thank's for the reminder .. I'm outta here LOL ... get a hobby or three I say (and make sure none of them involve meetings with fanatics or group singing

    cheers unclebruce
