Saturday Morning Chit Chat, Happy No Labour Day

Posted on August 31, 2013

Doing nothing on Labour DayWhy do we spend Labour Day doing nothing? I was thinking about this (and other deep thoughts) while I contemplated whether I wanted to write a blog for the long weekend.  Surely, the best way to pay full homage to the spirit of the holiday would be to do nothing.

I debated looking Labour Day up and doing a blog on the history of the day…yeah, that sounded as interesting to me as it did to you.  Even if you’re a history buff you have to be in the right mood to do anything like that or it’s just yawningly (yeah, that’s a word) boring.

What about how we individually enjoy the long weekend? My kids head back to school next week, so this long weekend isn’t a joyful romp to them, more like the last meal of the condemned. If you’re an evil mommy like me, you think the drama of returning to school is kinda funny.  I won’t get into why I have absolutely no pity for them, suffice it to say, I’ll be glad to get them out of the house.

I’ll be working on my basement, writing and probably doing a little work for my day job this weekend. What about you? What do you do when you’re doing “nothing”?
