    I'm a father of two and a very lucky husband. However me and my wife work opposites, so our kids don't go to daycare. I work the normal 9 to 5, and my wife works a couple nights as a receptionist and weekends as a waitress. Anyways, on friday nights me and the kids just play around and maybe walk to a restaurant to eat. Saturday mornings I take my daughter to dance classes and then come home and maybe get to spend a couple hours with my wife before she works again. Then I'll play with kids before we go to sleep. Then On Sundays I may take the kids toyhunting while my wife gets some much needed rest. Or as a family we may go out to eat somewhere. I wouldn't say my weekend sucks at all because i am with the kids and sometimes my wife. Just curious to see how other Transformers nerds spend their weekends, or time off.

    Well this weekend is our anniversary, so I'm taking the wife to the lake Sat morning, then in the afternoon I give the wife her first driving lesson, then later in the evening we'll go see a Movie. Sun is church in the morning, then what ever.

    this weekend i have to cram and finish a criminology research paper, which i should be writing right now. that will be interlaced with two six hour shifts, reading of much philosophy in preparation for exam, followed by watching of The Wrestler.

    normally my weekends are just work and sleep. i usually get some time in with the GF, too.

    happy anniversary!
    my girlfriend and I make the most of our weekends as much as we can. It's also our Persona 4 days, since I can't do much else but grind when she's at work. I don't wanna be a dick and make her miss any of the story. It takes a lot of self control though lol.
    she work mornings, and I work till midnight, so she's already in bed by the time I get home m-f.
    this Saturday we're trying to go see the Dirty Little Rabbits. Friend at work had me listen to em and they sounded great, plus the lead singer is REALLY hot, so that's something both of us would enjoy.
    Sunday is my day. We're gonna go out to Adventureland and the SCCA is renting out the parking lot for an Autocross day. My friend is paying my way in, so it's gonna be a fun day of flogging the miata :) 
    Her birthday is monday, so we might be going out to the tattoo parlor to get her inked up as well :)

    I think there's a car boot sale just up the road from me tomorrow morning. Not that I hold out much hope for any great TF finds. Beyond that, just hanging out with my woman and maybe a trip into town on Sunday to see what the stupid holidaymakers are up to. Then some internet and maybe some DVD watching. Oh, and new Lost and Fringe on Sunday night.

    Sunday - Hang out with the wife and kids. Do all the running around that we don't have time for during the week.
    Monday - Repeat Sunday, but take one of the kidlets to school intermixed with all the other stuff.

    I work Saturday, so my weekend is postponed by one day.

    Drinking, Smoking, and trying to free my mind.

    In all seriousness, I work weekends, in retail. Just this week I am switching from overnights to days, so hopefully that goes well.

    I get my daughter every other weekend (I friggin' HATE that, but it's how it is), and this isn't our weekend, so the gf and I are going TF-hunting tonight, then yard sale-ing tomorrow and maybe catch a matinee, then Sunday is MTG night.

    Sundays I sleep off a hangover, order pizza, and play videogames.

    Friday nights, we'll either watch a movie or Ill stay up playing video games. On saturdays, we'll clean house, run errands, she takes a nap, and Ill play again. Saturday nights I work at my second job and she'll go to a friend's house. Sundays, I do laundry, iron, do some more house cleaning and just wait for the week to start.

    All Friday, I work....

    All Saturday, I work...

    Sunday, I sleep in, go shopping, get takeout, take a nap, watch TV...

    Monday is my second day off, so I use that day to run errands.

    And that's my weekend in a nutshell. lol

    Catch up on sleep. Play some games. Work on art. Spend time with my girlfriend. Maybe post on the TFW2005. Nothing too unusual.
