I’ve LOVED having four days off. Well, sort of three, or two.
We have a four-day school week and so I really had Friday “off,” but I worked three hours setting up the football field and cleaning the commons for the back to school dance. Then I worked the football game for three and a half hours scoring up in the booth. But I got to sleep in ’til six! Dreamy!
Saturday was the middle school 7th grade invitation volleyball tourney and I worked that. But it was only from 10 – 3:30, so I’m still not counting that as a work day. I got to sleep in again until 6:30. Heaven! I had at least half of the day off. Of course Dal and Becky’s wedding was that night. Stephen was gorgeous, dressed in a tux and believe it or not, a camouflage hunting cap, as best man. It was a fun night.
Sunday and Monday were truly days off. Church, playing cards with Barbara and a 12 -step meeting were added in there, but it was pure luxury spending time with family. Monday, today, Mikelle and I ordered a movie, Back Up Plan, with Jenifer Lopez and we laughed our heads off and cried over the ending. Logan went with hubby to get a trailer-load of hay for the winter and then they headed out around one. This afternoon I took a blissful three hour nap.
I’ve been so lazy and hope I can wake up at 4 a.m. to start the next week all over. Only three days this week!
Mikelle helped me clean; I finished all the laundry; dishes are done and I hardly use any all week long, being the only one here, so I’m ready to work three 15-hour days and already looking forward to the next weekend. I really don’t know if a four-day-school-week is worth it. My experience is that we wear ourselves out and then sleep. As an employee of the school district I believe it’s defeating the purpose of education . . cramming so much in the days Monday through Thursday. Kids are there from 5:30 a.m. for weight lifting and practice, attend classes from 8 – 4:00, more practice, clubs and homework and bed by midnight. How can that be good?
But the weekends are wonderful!
