3 Day weekends....Blessing or Curse?
I work four 10 hour days. Actually, I get an hour for lunch, so technically, I only work 9 hours. Some days, I do wind up working 10 hours, especially if it's terribly busy. But I get Fridays off. Sounds great huh? And it is, but..... by the time Friday rolls around, I'm so exhausted, I can't enjoy the day. I'm ok on Monday and Tuesday, but I can feel the fatigue beginning on Wednesday and by Thursday night, I'm absolutely worthless. I normally wind up spending Friday sleeping late, and laying around the house recuperating. I get very little accomplished. This Friday, my sister and I took our mother to a doctor's appointment and then did a little shopping. It was a very good day and we enjoyed each other's company. Eventhough I was home earlier than expected, I was so tired I fell asleep on the couch. It's Saturday and I now must force myself to do some housework, grocery shop and cook since I don't cook much during the week. I am beginning to question the whole Fridays off thing. Is it worth it? I don't know. And when the flu season hits again this fall and winter, will I be able to even function at all by Friday?
