    I myself work just about every day. Working at home every day is the same. In fact normally if I do something fun I do it during the week so there is less traffic and crowds. smile

    But I always spend at least a few hours every day doing some type of work on the net. How about you, anyone here work during the weekends? smile

      Yeah, I usually work all Saturday.  Not Sunday but definitely am at the grindstone 6 days a week.

      I work in the Tourist Industry, so my heaviest days are at the weekend. During the height of the season, every day is heavy, and I generally have no idea which day it is smile

      I work every day of the week. I think that most people who are self-employed do. We don't even think that much in terms of day of the week. Here's a neat trick to tell who is self-employed and who is an employee. Print an invitation to an event with a date of the month and a day of the week that don't match. The people who come on the day of the week are employed, and every day of the month is the same to them, but it really matters what day of the week it is, because they don't work weekends. The people who show up on the day of the month printed are self employed. Every day of the week is the same for them.

      The Sabbath was created for employees.

      I own a business and work full time on the business.  I also teach part time (30 hours per week) math, chemistry, and physics at a private acadamy.  I also do telco installations as a private contractor.  I am lucky when my work week is less than 90 hours.  That is a short work week for me.

    Guilty.  However, work during the week is business, work on the weekends is homelife.  smile

    Sounds like a lot work on the weekends, guess I'm not alone. I don't think I'll work all day today, but most of it. Got to see my new movie from netflix! smile

      The joy of being self-employed is working at weekends - I generally work unless I have something planned with friends etc. The pay-off is I can take time out during the week if I need to.

    For the most part (the "really" most part), I keep weekends for myself.  (I don't count stuff like HubPages as "work".  That I do if I'm at all in the house on the weekend.  I'm self-employed, so I do like to keep some structure to the work work.  It's bad enough that I have a pretty unstructured kind thing going on during the week.  I want and need my weekends.  My thing is often to "do whatever" somewhere like here weekend mornings, or else late at night (or all night lol) on weekends.

    I work week ends during the tax season (like Feb. to April of every year). Other months I work during week ends if I have a deadline on my online work or if I have a special job that I need to finish or if I'm teaching. Otherwise, I just hub, or read novels smile.

    I make my sole income writing online, so I work whenever I want. Loosely translated, that means I work 7 days per week. smile

    I definitely work on weekends. When my daughter is watching her cartoons in the morning. I may do some work if I decide to turn on a football or baseball game during the day. At night is another option for me. My daughter is in bed between 8 and 9, so after that is time to get some work done.

    I work part time at a hardware store - and they're open seven days.

    At the moment I work every second weekend but it can vary.

    I get every Monday, Thursday and Friday off though, so that's good!
