Laboring on Labor Day

Happy Labor Day, folks. Let’s see a show of hands. Raise your hand if you’re actually working today.

Let’s see…you there, is your hand up or down? Down? Okay. Is that one over there…no? Mmmmm, looks like it’s just….

Me.

‘S okay, though. For years, I actually got Labor Day as a paid holiday. Now that I’m my own boss, I have to accept that I might have to work at weird times. And actually, I got a lot done today and feel pretty good about it. And that’s made it worthwhile for me.

And now that I’ve gotten so much done, I’m off to investigate the goodies that my husband brought home from the grocery store. Do I smell watermelon?
