Three day weekend. Lots of rain. More time spent inside than I have spent in a long time.
How to spend the time?
Household projects that have been waiting for months?
Hundreds of emails that will never stop arriving or screaming for a response?
Bills..I can get ahead on handling the bills…
Shopping…uh no thanks unless somehow I can make it a social outing with my wife or kids. Or pick up some stuff at the hardware store for those household projects!
Watch baseball games on TV…there is a weak spot.
How about spending time sitting around talking with family and friends? In other words, doing nothing. Or doing everything. The most important thing. Relationships with family and friends.
If you have spent the first two days of this three day-er pursuing your list of personal interests, maybe it is time that on day three, we take time to visit with family and friends. Check in with loved ones.
Spend time on what really matters.
I know it is cliche…but other people are the only real thing in your life.
Don’t worry, when you die there will likely still be a lot of household chores.
But will there be those relationships?
Three day weekend with a Monday holiday. Spend it on the best things in your life.
While you are at it, remember those folks laboring for you today and not enjoying a holiday with the same opportunities. Hopefully they will have another opportunity to do so soon.
