Saturday and Sunday are very sacred days of the week in our household. Each of us have things that are non-negotiable to us. For Da, it’s his afternoon siesta. Our engagements during the weekend will have to work around his (no, not Ram’s but Da’s) nap time. For moi, it’s the weekend tasks – 4 loads of laundry, 1 container of idli-dosai batter, 1 set of chapathi dough kneaded, and 5 boxes of salad for Da’s lunch. Weekday sanity is highly determined by whether or not I accomplish these tasks over the weekend. For Hari, it’s his video games time plus the sleep over with me on Saturday night. He is allowed to play games for half hour during the weekend only. By the way, the child has petitioned for extending this to another day during the week. For Ram, it’s the movie night on Sat. The kiddie typically starts the countdown right from Wed. Is today Sat.? can I watch T.V, today? What movie should I watch on Sat.?
Of course, we make exceptions. But in general, these are unwritten rules that we respect and abide by. Do you have things that you hold dear to heart during the weekend?
