Look forward, my friend . . . the cycle does end once you "retire" as they say - though in my case "they" just quit hiring me.
Anyway - week-ends become moot, in a sense, because you look forward to week days when most people are at work, kids are in school, and the masses are otherwise distracted so things you want to do are better available, parking lots are less filled . . . you just have to avoid "rush hour" and "lunch".
You have more freedom - less money to enjoy it so you wish (sometimes) you were working again . . . Ha! The "circle of life" ain't all it's advertised!!
Gads . . . a book in progress, eh?
You're right though, my friend...
