I love a long weekend

Good Monday Tuesday morning to ya!

Prepare to feel wonky all week long – also prepare to feel like these next 4 days to feel like 8 days because that’s always the way it seems to happen after a long weekend. Why is that?

Anyway, I took the day off last Friday so that I could have a four day weekend and why can’t all weekends be four day weekends? Or at least three day weekends? Having that extra day off just feels like I get so much more accomplished AND I have extra time to relax. In my next life, I’m going to be a dentist so that my office will be closed on Fridays, then all my weekends will be 3 day weekends. Actually in my next life I’m going to come back as a cat (or Lady Violet from Downton Abbey) so that I won’t have any concept of weekends or work. I’m thankful and grateful for my job but man, I really love NOT working.



Speaking of Downton Abbey, is anyone else excited about the movie? I used to love my Sunday evenings watching DA on PBS – it was such a nice way to end the weekend. I get a little misty-eyed whenever I hear the theme song now. Anyone else? No? Okay never mind.

In other news, Shelley had mentioned the dress I was wearing in my last post – let me tell you about that dress! It is so comfy and affordable and it has POCKETS. I am thinking of getting more dresses like that because it’s just such an easy dress and perfect for summer events. Here’s the link on Amazon (click the picture – this is my affiliate link, no cost to you for clicking, but I get small commish if you buy anything after clicking my link, just fyi):

There are lots of colors and designs available. This dress is (at the time of this post) $29.99 plus there’s a 20% off coupon available when you click the box (underneath the price listing). I have 3 other dresses in this collection on my Wish List right now and I plan to add them to my wardrobe over the summer. For the fall, there is a long sleeve version that I want to check out as well. I love a good comfortable dress!

Well, time to get back to the grind. Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend and remembered to thank a Vet and spent some time thinking about those who have passed. Here in Oklahoma, we spent a lot of time watching the weather and dodging tornadoes and praying the flood waters would recede. It’s been pretty ridiculous in this region, hope you all have been able to avoid the mess that is Spring Weather.

  1. Long weekends really are just the best. I was just telling my husband yesterday that I’m thinking of using vacation days to take one 3-day weekend a month. I’m trying to think of a way to phrase it to my boss that isn’t, “I am desperate for three days in a row where I don’t have to see any of you people.” I still have to work on that.

    1. Lol! I had the same thought this morning! I was thinking, I have enough vacation days that I could take a 3 day weekend fairly often – once a month sounds about right!

  2. I think the only thing I love more than a three-day weekend is a dress with pockets! All dresses should have pockets and all weekends should be three-day weekends. Life would just be that much more pleasant if we could make these changes.

    1. Who do we talk to about making this a reality? Who would be in charge of that? I need to know so we can get this ball rolling!! 🙂
