So. Any exciting plans for this weekend? I bet you're looking forward to spending some time with your family, or catching up with friends. Maybe there's a new recipe or restaurant you've wanted to try. And, of course, there are those countless minutes of checking your work email.

Wait. What? That doesn't sound like a relaxing way to spend the Saturday. Or Sunday. Or both.
