Why did I take the day off?
Not because it's a holiday.
Not because it's a slow period at work.
Not because we had anything particular to do.
It was just because the kids had the day off (actually, they had a 4-day weekend). I decided I'd at least manage a 3-day weekend.
And during this whole 3-day weekend, I didn't blog, I didn't write (much), I just bopped around the house, did some little bits and pieces here and there, caught up on some reading, did some grocery shopping... and basically chilled.
I highly recommend doing this from time to time. It's good for the soul.
