The misery of long weekends

Taking off for a long weekend in an attempt to relax may sound wise, but in practice is generally a Bad Idea. To do it properly requires is far too expensive, and to do it poorly just wastes a few perfectly good days. Please remind me of this the next time one comes around, and sabotage my helicopter if necessary. Now I have a project draft to finish by tomorrow, and I’m not looking forward to it. And a book to finish. There’s no way I’m sleeping tonight. And tomorrow… I’m adjusting my diet, just in case.

    Your life sounds like my life. Next time you have advice to offer for the weekend, could you please post it on, say, Wednesday or Thursday instead of Tuesday? ; )

    I understand how it is. They either need to take no effort at all, or they need to be planned by someone else. Good travel agents have a great market niche– maybe more important for the soul than doctors!
