I love me a day off. I truly do.
However, there are some things about a day off that bug me.
First of all, if I have a day off, that doesn't mean the work that normally needs to be done on that day goes away. Oh no! It's either sitting there waiting on me when I get back, or if I do have someone filling in for me, I must pull everything needed to accomplish the task together and have it waiting for my co-worker.
Not fun. Not fun at all. (Don't get me wrong, I still want to have my day off, though.)
Another thing about having a day off that bugs me: my eyes pop open at the regular time I'm supposed to get up. Sometimes I can go back to sleep, but most of the time, "it ain't happening."
I always feel like I should accomplish something extra when I have a day off ... otherwise, the day is wasted.
Oh, the pressure!
And then about half-way through my lovely free day, I start thinking ... "It's almost over. What do I have to show for it?" Or ... "only 3 more hours left of my time off."
So, in reality, having a day off boils down to two, maybe three, lovely hours of doing what I want and enjoying myself.
Is it worth it? You bet!
