I am a 55-year-old man who spends 40 hours a week at work with alot of people who don't like me, and who I don't like. Quite apart from the daunting tasks at work is the daunting atmosphere. By the end of the day I am drained, by the atmosphere and all the coffee I drink just trying to make it through the day. I go home after work and microwave a TV dinner or get a bowl of cold cereal and eat. Then I listen to talk radio till 9 p.m., and then hit the sack. The first day of my weekend I do nothing, resting up from the 5 workdays. The second day I do all the needed things; laundry, grocery shopping and such. Then I am back at work, looking to the three-day-weekends or vacations when I can live fully.
