for many, many years i worked in the wonderful retail sector. My life consisted of working 5 days a week, one of which was always a Saturday with a day off during the week. Because my husband also worked retail, we would try and not have the same day off to relieve the kid sitter. i have many years of working saturdays in my past and i hope they stay there.
I have been at my new job for almost 2 years and i still can’t believe that feeling of thinking, “Hey, it’s Friday and i don’t have to go to work tomorrow.” it’s like this constant gift that i get. The thought of 2 days off in a row still hasn’t really sunk in. Not that i don’t do major housework and errand running on saturdays… it’s certainly not a day of leisure but the feeling of not having to work is quite rewarding.
So, i look forward to tomorrow with excitement BUT i also feel for those that DO work on Saturday and i have empathy for you…. because i understand how crappy it is…..
