What do you usually do on a 3 day weekend?
Do you sleep in? Do you have company over? Do you get to go out with family/friends?
This weekend is President's Day. We had guests over this past evening. What do you do on a long weekend?
I usually sleep in the latest possible. Also, I have a family barbeque!
A Three day weekend is like a Goldust for me.. I hardly get a 3 day continous off...
However, if I get this opportunity, I would lay back and sleep for as long as I can.... Whatever work is pending, I shall do it afterwards...
Before I quit my job, when I was working, a three-day weekend was kind of a double edge sword for me. I loved the extra day off, not having to work on Monday. However, my job was such (worked for physicians in a state facility for the mentally retarded) that when I returned on Tuesday, I would pay dearly for not being there on Monday. It put me further behind in my work, and the telephone calls were incredible. Not to mention the paperwork. Sometimes I would be so far behind I would actually go into work on either Saturday or Sunday to try to catch up. The solitude was amazing, and I got alot accomplished. When I did that, I thoroughly enjoyed that Monday off. You can't put a price on peace of mind. I used that extra day to work on my passion which is writing. Also, since I love going to the movies, quite often I would do that also.
Now that I am no longer working, I still kind of take advantage of a three day weekend. For example I took my grandson out to lunch and to a movie yesterday, and I'm spending tomorrow, Monday, with my granddaughter. I'm taking her to the Carousel Mall in Syracuse for lunch and shopping for her upcoming birthday this week. It's nice to do that and not have to go to work the next day.
Three day weekends are great, and I ALWAYS looked forward to them when I was employed. It's great for anyone to have that extra day off. I know alot of my co-workers would take Friday off and make it a 4 day travel weekend.
It's also great for parents to have that extra day to spend with their children.
Go out on day trips or something like that. There's usually something interesting to do here in Manchester; art galleries, museums, etc. Going away for the weekend is nice. We went to Llandudno last year. Excellent seaside resort well worth visiting.
Sometimes it depends on the weekend. If I've neglected the house for awhile, I'll spend a day or two cleaning (I did laundry and grocery shopping this last weekend). Sometimes my husband and I go on a spontaneous day trip that is within an hour or two (those are my favorite 3-day weekends!). We spend time with friends or family every weekend, so whether we invite people over or go somewhere else, I usually spend time planning a meal.
Back when I had a regular teaching position, I worked most long weekends. I teach from home now, so I normally get my work done during the week, which frees up my weekends.
Also, I've been working on my Day Zero goals and writing in my spare time, which includes most weekends.
