I just travel all the time. And I was just looking at the schedules now and starting the first week of October I will be every weekend with somebody at tournaments through Christmas. So it gets very difficult to just go away and not do that.
I was very studious too much. I would never go out at weekends. I was very serious. You should have seen me in class - I was blushing and sweating every time the teacher asked me something.
The water cooler conversation in every job I've had is sports it's what did you do this weekend it's 'How are your parents doing?'
When my TV show 'Sports Jobs with Junior Seau ' assigned me to be a 'Sports Illustrated' reporter for a weekend I didn't realize I'd have to squeeze it in around another sports job. I had planned to retire from the NFL to enjoy the cushy lifestyle of a full-time reality TV star but I wound up getting run over by a bull.
If I can give you one strong piece of advice when you go away for that romantic weekend whatever you do do not accept or take the upgrade to the honeymoon suite.
The thing that stood out above and beyond all the experiences was this relationship with the nine-month-old baby. On weekends I'd be thinking about going back to set on Monday just to see the baby.
I like doing things where I can get dirty work with my hands and use power tools. Last weekend I did some grouting.
I'm hosting weekend retreats all over America. It is like a 24-hour slumber party for moms. We laugh eat play games get massages win prizes talk about parenting and even cry a bit.
When I'm shooting a movie I'm always in an invisible theater seat. I respect the fact that people have worked hard all week and want to go to the movies on the weekend and be entertained.
The other two things are... well I had a huge appetite for old black and white movies on BBC 2. At the weekends they used to run matinees and the more romantic the better.
A lot of times we're just sold these movies that are really cynically conceived and marketed and they just want you there opening weekend before everybody finds out it's not so good.
Movies are not about the weekend that they're released and in the grand scheme of things that's probably the most unimportant time of a film's life.
To this day I hate walnuts and I hate onions because on weekends when the walnuts and onions were in season we were out there first thing in the morning and out there until the sun went down topping onions or picking walnuts.
I eat as much as the next girl but I work my butt of in the gym every morning! The key is moderation. I splurge on the weekend. A big bowl of pasta and a delicious slice of cake for dessert are my favorites.
My friends and I would get up early and take our horses through the national forest. My mom was very free. It was always 'Out of the house!' There was no watching television on weekends.
The great medical facilities are a relief for the parents too who don't have to think about caring for their young ones on their own for a weekend. They have a great time.
I'm learning the power of going away for the weekend and keeping myself company.
But it was this tough little character part that I was playing a very funny little guy that I invented over a weekend because I realized I was not contributing to the humor of this thing. And I had to do something.
I do 280 episodes of TV a year write 15 recipes for the magazine and publish an annual book. With all of that we try to get one weekend a month with Isaboo at our home in the Adirondacks to relax and recharge.
I'm kind of a dork. I don't have much game. I'm not particularly comfortable in bars or clubs. I much prefer being home playing Scrabble having dinner with a couple friends going to see a movie or losing a whole weekend to Season 14 of Law and Order or The Simpsons.
I much prefer working with kids whose life could be completely upended by a reading of a book over a weekend. You give them a book to read - they go home and come back a changed person. And that is so much more interesting and exciting.
I went to my son's graduation this weekend and I heard a great quote I've never heard before from Albert Einstein. It was that the greatest danger to the world is not the bad people but it's the good people who don't speak out.
For most Americans Friday afternoons are filled with positive anticipation of the weekend. In Washington it's where government officials dump stories they want to bury. Good news gets dropped on Monday so bureaucrats can talk about it all week.
It's a funny thing - when I'm crazed with work spending time with my children relaxes me. Yet at the end of a long weekend with them the very thing I need to relax is a little work and time away from them!
