    How lazy are you on Saturday mornings?

    I am extremely, extremely lazy on Saturday morning. Saturday mornings are my time to let the busy-ness of the week dissipate, have no time constraints, and sit here with my laptop. I will catch up on my online banking (which is the only real work I do), read some of my 'net forums. Let the energy flow back into my body.

    My friend commented yesterday that during the week, my brain gets full, and i need a "brain janitor."

    So Saturday mornings, I let the Brain Janitor do his thing.

    Some time later, if the Brain Janitor has been successful, I may start to tidy a little. Or come up with other ideas of things to do.

    Currently, the Brain Janitor is no more than half done

    I get up and make breakfast for everyone as usual, but the best Saturdays find us still in our pajamas at lunchtime.
    Summer is different, though - I'm outside as much as possible, walking, biking, working in the garden early in the day.

    My Saturday is usually some laziness in the morning, while I still make breakfast or sometimes DH makes "brunch" usually eggs with lots of veggies. But we then usually go back to oatmeal on the next day of our weekend.

    Once I start working at Grand Canyon National Park, I will have (every two weeks) a three day weekend. I think we will be a little more active then. One day to veg and the other two days to have fun. But sometimes you just need to let your mind escape all of the info you get. As long as you don't do this all the time, I think you should be fine.

    Okay, I'm a lazy bum on Sat. mornings! I like the "brain janitor" excuse; think I'll adopt that one, if you don't mind. Sunday is always a quiet day, too. I do plan to do some much needed shopping later, if the pain in my legs lessens. If not, oh well, I can go to bed and read.
    ljevtich, I have a 3 day weekend every week, and I still have trouble getting up and moving! Inertia sustains itself. You have to fight it! I don't.

    Well I'm chronically lazy so .

    Honestly the worst was when I had an hour commute each way to a full time job once (job was extremely stressful too). I spent most of Saturday sleeping to recover then (that much driving really drained me), I wouldn't get up until mid afternoon. I hope not to have to do that again, but who knows.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    It's not unheard of for me to sleep right through morning and wake up for lunch. Today was different.. up and ready to go at 7:30... went for a walk... did a few things at home... took the kids to the garden center and Aldi.. put out mulch etc. I bet there's a nap in my near future though

    I'm usually pretty lazy on Saturday mornings, as well as afternoons and evenings. Today is a little worse than usual though. Up at 8:30 rather than my usual 6am. Sat around drinking coffee and watching it rain through mid-morning. My wife went out for her Saturday morning Zumba class at 9:30 which allowed me an hour and a half of complete isolation and silence. Had scrambled eggs at 11:30 after she returned. Now it's 2pm and I'm still not dressed, nor have I done anything at all.

    Yeah, I'm pretty lazy on most Saturday mornings, but particularly so on this one.

    I sleep in until 6 AM on Saturday rather than the usual 5 AM during the week when my husbands leaves for work. Our Saturday mornings are 'unstructured and flexible' but we are usually out and about by 9AM. Dog demands and farm chores do no allow much down time but it feels lazy when compared to Sunday or a weekday.

    I think being a little lazy (or a lot lazy) on Saturday mornings (weekend mornings for that matter) is a good thing. It helps rejuvenate the body and soul and spirit.

    My intentions are always so good, but sometimes I get off to a late start. But I still always manage to do all the housework and laundry, and the occasional extra project.
